Sports-loving Texas A&M University is a destination for both students and College Station visitors. The thrilling home football games held at Kyle Field are deeply embedded in Texas culture, while the Bonfire Memorial and Presidential Library remind us of those we have lost and where we came from.
This football stadium at Texas A&M University is the fourth-largest stadium in the United States. Home to the Texas Aggies, this is where students and staff gather the night before a big game and perform the Midnight Yell, a celebration complete with fight songs and harrowing stories of previous football glory. The end of the night commences with a "lights out" in the stadium, where students kiss their dates, and unpartnered students can spark up their lighters and find other singles out on the field.
The Texas Aggie Bonfire was a tradition that began in 1907. Students would gather around a massive scrap heap and watch it burn, symbolizing their burning passion to defeat other teams in upcoming football matches. After a tragic accident in 1999 led to 12 deaths, a memorial was erected for the fallen students.
This library, research institution, and museum dedicated to the 41st US president is set on the grounds of Texas A&M University. Explore exact replicas of the Oval Office, Camp David, and the White House Situation Room, as well as Bush's personal memorabilia and paperwork.
