The Aggie Recruitment Committee (ARC) is a completely student-run committee within the Texas A&M Student Government Association dedicated to recruiting outstanding, diverse Aggies. That goal is realized through two conferences-one held during each academic semester, and also by visiting high schools during winter vacation.

Whoopin' Weekend 2015 dates are March 6 - 8

The registration date will be on January 16th from 8am-5pm. Those students who sign up within this time will be put in a lottery to be selected. It is not based on a first come, first serve basis, so there is no benefit to registering right when it opens. Please contact Taylor Seaman at registration@arc.tamu.edu if you have any questions. 

Hosts

Here is all the information you need to become a host for Aggie Recruitment Committee! 

Thank you for considering hosting for Aggie Recruitment Committee. Without your help, our mission of recruiting future Aggies would not be possible. Hosting is a fun and easy way to spread your Aggie spirit to high school juniors and seniors. As a host, you will allow one or two high school students to spend two nights in your dorm room, in order to give them the experience of living in a college dorm. By hosting these high school students for our conference, they will gain an experience that is truly unique, and you will be able to make a positive impact and help in adding to our Aggie family.
