North America has been destroyed, and the Capitol is evil. The new nation is Panem, and it consists of 12 districts. Each district must send a teenage boy and girl to the annual Hunger Games. This sick event is punishment for an uprising that occurred years before and is an ongoing event to use government intimidation. If not twisted enough already, this event is nationally televised, and the nation watches as the “tributes” fight one another until there is only one left.
This is the plotline for the ever-famous book, The Hunger Games. This year, a group of students at Texas A&M University created an event for college kids and others alike to come together and participate in this “life or death” event to fight Read the rest of this entry »

Texas A&M University’s transfer to the Southeastern Conference placed them in a division with some of the top athletic universities in the nation. Alongside such names as the Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers is another powerful southern university: The University of Mississippi, better known as Ole Miss with the mascot the Rebel Black Bear.
The University of Mississippi is in the Western Division of the SEC with Texas A&M. This means that the two schools will be playing together in the 2012 season, with Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Arkansas, and Mississippi State. The Aggies line up to face Ole Miss on October 6th of 2012 at the University of Mississippi, in their Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Texas A&M’s history with Ole Miss is mostly ancient. They have played only one football game together since 1937, and that was the relatively recent 2000 Independence Bowl Game. Ole Miss barely snuck past the Aggies with a 43-41 victory, marking their second win in the four game history between the two schools. The two schools’ most recent game before the millennium was in 1937, when the Aggies shut out the University of Mississippi Read the rest of this entry »

The University of Georgia Bulldogs will not face off against the Texas A&M Aggies in the latter’s premiere season in the SEC. This, however, is no excuse to ignore that Georgia is, and has been, an elite program with the Southeastern Conference, and will remain to do so throughout the upcoming years of A&M’s assimilation.
University of Georgia is in the Eastern Division of the SEC, one of the determining factors of their avoiding a confrontation with the rookie Aggies. They are one of the founding institutions of the SEC, joining the conference at its creation in 1932, and one of the most widely respected and competitive. With two consensus national championship titles under their belt for Georgia Bulldog Football, as well as three other titles from various national rankings, the Bulldogs have a strong history of success.
Along with a rich athletic history, the school also has an ancient and rich academic history. Founded in 1785 as a Public Research Institution in Athens, Georgia, The U of G is the oldest university in the Southeastern conference by nine years. It is also one of multiple universities across the nation with a claim as the oldest public university in the entire nation.
Curiously, the University of Georgia wasn’t constructed until 1799 when the Senatus Academicus voted to officially Read the rest of this entry »

There has been plenty of excitement over the recent launch of the 2012 London Olympics. Over one billion people worldwide tuned in to watch the opening ceremonies in London on Friday, July 27th and even more are eager to watch the famous match ups of various athletes in the diverse Olympic competitions. However, there is a secondary enthusiasm for the start of these games in College Station, Texas. Thanks to the outstanding athletic programs at Texas A&M University, 23 Aggie athletes will be competing in various sports with several associated personal appearing in coaching positions, reporting, as well as to simply show support for the students representing such a great institution.
The twenty-three Aggie athletes that will be appearing in the London Olympics will be representing fourteen different nations. Among the list are Canada, Australia, Mexico, Jamaica, and the Bahamas: along with Estonia, Grenada, Trinidad & Tobago, Tonga, the US Virgin Islands, Lithuania, Croatia, and Zambia.
Fifteen of the twenty-three Aggies are women, outnumbering their Aggie male Olympians by almost twice as many. This reflects a national trend, as this is the first Olympics ever that the number of female Olympic athletes have outnumbered the population of the male athletes. However, Texas A&M’s proportion most likely has more to do with A&M’s outstanding women’s swimming and diving Read the rest of this entry »

Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, was selected by the national government to implement one of three national biosecurity centers on June 13th of 2012. This designation was accompanied by $285.6 million contract to Texas A&M, most of which came directly from the Federal government while the rest was generated by academic and commercial partners, as well as the state of Texas.
To put the magnitude of this project and grant in perspective, John Sharp (Chancellor of Texas A&M University) explained that, “simply put, this is one of the biggest federal grants to come to Texas since NASA.” This new biosecurity center is estimated by the University of Pittsburg to bring in a thousand direct jobs to the area of the program, along with over six thousand indirect jobs as a result. The Federal Government also announced that it is expecting to award up to $1.2 billion for the project.
So what does this mean for the Bryan, College Station Read the rest of this entry »
