It has been said that when an Aggie graduates, the most important thing he/she walks away with is not the diploma or Aggie Ring, but the connection to the Aggie Family. Transfer Camp, or T-Camp, is a three-day, two-night, extended orientation program that introduces transfer students to the many opportunities that exist at Texas A&M and the long-standing traditions that embody the true meaning of being an Aggie. The idea for T-Camp came from transfer students themselves; they wanted an extended orientation experience similar to Fish Camp, but specifically for transfer students. T-Camp became “A Transfer's First Tradition" in 1987. Today, this student-run organization is composed of over 100 current students, and welcomes around 500 new Aggies into the Aggie Family each year.
