Singapore Aggie Club Muster

- Released on Apr 24, 2006

Aggies first gathered together on June 26,1883 to live over again their college days, the victories and defeats won and lost upon the drill field and in the classroom. By April 21, 1903, this annual gathering evolved into a celebration of Texas' Independence on San Jacinto Day. These early meetings included field games and banquets for Aggies to reflect and celebrate their memories of Aggieland. “Let every alumni answer a roll call, ” wrote the former students. It was not until 1922, however, that April 21 became the official day of events for all Aggies, thus, the annual tradition of Muster was born.

Now, Muster is celebrated in more than four-hundred places world wide, with the largest ceremony on the Texas A&M campus in College Station. The ceremony brings together more Aggies, worldwide, on one occasion than any other event.

This year, Institute for Pacific Asia Director Randy Kluver attended the Muster celebration held by the Singapore Aggie Club. Hopefully this is only the first of many such Aggie traditions that Dr. Kluver will be able to experience as he becomes a part of IPA and of the Aggie community worldwide!
