Committees

As an extension of the Executive Branch, there are 14 committees within Student Government who act to enhance the student body in the areas of leadership, service, quality of student life, and traditions. The collective misssion of these organizations as cited in the Executive Council By-laws is to "perform services that are of direct immediate benefit to the student body and to the community of Texas A&M University."  


Aggie Muster Committee organizes the most sacred and time-honored traditions at Texas A&M. Over time, the tradition has changed, but its very essence has remained. "If there is an A&M man in one-hundred miles of you, you are expected to get together, eat a little, and live over the days you spent at the A&M College of Texas." Muster is celebrated in more than four hundred places worldwide, with the largest ceremony on the Texas A&M campus in College Station. The Muster Committee is responsible for organizing and planning every aspect of the tradition, including the speaker, roll call and barbeque.
