In 2008 Class Councils started a new tradition here at Texas A&M known as 11-11 day with the sole purpose of giving back to Aggie Veterans and Aggies currently serving our great nation.
In 2010, Class Councils and the 11-11 Day Committee established the Class Councils Aggie Rings for Veterans Fund. Through this special giving opportunity, we hope to ensure that student veterans who have earned their Aggie Rings have the financial resources to do so.
The success and continuation of 11-11 Day and this fund is largely dependent on generous donations from surrounding communitities, businesses, alumni, and t-shirt sales.
Maroon Out was founded by Class of 2000 Junior President, Kyle Valentine in the summer of 1998. He was concerned about Texas A&M having to play the University of Nebraska at home during the Fall semester. Nebraska was a top ranked football program that year and their ardent fans showed up to every game wearing red in an effort to intimidate the other team. Kyle wanted to give the Aggies an extra boost of spirit by matching Nebraska’s sea of red with an even bigger sea of maroon. Maroon Out started that year at the Texas A&M/Nebraska game on October 10, 1998. That Maroon Out game led to a national shortage of maroon shirts after 31,000 shirts were sold for the game. Now, Class Councils sell over 45,000 each year.
Maroon Out has become a highly anticipated tradition that celebrates the unity of the Texas A&M Aggie Family.
