Our Mission

The Department of Student Activities fosters and supports leadership, learning, and involvement opportunities that enhance the growth and development of students and recognized student organizations.  As members of the university community, we are committed to a philosophy of shared responsibility that develops leaders of character dedicated to serving the greater good, and we subscribe to the Texas A&M core values of Respect, Excellence, Leadership, Loyalty, Integrity, and Selfless Service.


Student Activities is home to a number of areas that provide programs and services to students and student organizations:

Campus Engagement & Traditions plays host to both the Student Government Association and the Class Center.

The Student Government Association is one of the largest organizations at Texas A&M, involving over 1,300 students who lead three branches of government, fifteen committees, and four commissions. SGA represents student opinion, addresses campus needs, maintains tradition, and provides leadership development opportunities for those involved.

With a focus on Texas A&M’s unique culture, tradition, and spirit, the Class Councils coordinate traditional events such as Fish Fest, Pull-Out Day,  Elephant Walk and Ring Dance.

Extended Orientation is home to Fish Camp, Aggie Transition Camps, and Venture Camps – all dedicated to welcoming new Aggies to Texas A&M.

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is home to almost 60 values-based, Greek-letter organizations governed by one of four councils: Collegiate Panhellenic Council (CPC), the InterFraternity Council (IFC), the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), and the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC).

Striving to empower students and staff to become active citizens and effective leaders, the Leadership and Service Center is home to various events and programs designed to enhance your leadership abilities. LEARN MORE

Texas A&M has more than 1100 student organizations recognized by the Department of Student Activities. The Student Organization Development and Administration area not only oversees the recognition and risk management of student organizations and their activities, but they also provide valuable education, consultation, and partnerships that help organizations be successful.

Supporting Texas A&M’s vast number of student organizations, the Student Organization Financial Center provides banking and financial services in support of student organization activities and programs.
