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 houses and advises both the Student Government Association and Class Councils.

The Student Government Association (SGA) is one of the largest organizations at Texas A&M, involving over 1,100 students who lead three branches of government, thirteen 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 of class affiliation, tradition, and spirit, the Class Councils coordinate traditional events such as Fish Fest, Pull-Out Day, Elephant Walk, Legacy Night, and Ring Dance.

Supporting the Departments development initiatives through meaningful connections and intentional events. Our team supports department areas in their development initiatives by providing training, best practices, and through matching donors with groups that support their vision.
The Extended Orientation team provides direct advising, support, and coordination to extended orientation programs at Texas A&M University including Fish Camp, Howdy Camp, T-Camp, Venture Camps, and Traditions Night. These programs welcome around 6,000 incoming students each year to Texas A&M.
