Aggie Scholars Award Ceremonies
An Aggie Scholar is a student who achieves a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the previous academic year. Aggie Scholars receive a scholarship and the Aggie Scholars pin as a reward for their hard work and dedication to academic excellence.
The Aggie Scholars Wall
A wall in the Jack K. Williams Library has been set aside to display permanent plaques with the names of the Aggie Scholars for each academic year. Students who are awarded Academic Scholarships from TAMUG will have framed certificates displayed on the wall for one academic year, at the end of which, the student will be allowed to take home. A ceremony to unveil the wall and honor these scholars will be held before classes begin each fall. A reception will follow where the students will receive their Aggie Scholars Pins from TAMUG President Admiral Smith, Chief Academic Officer Patrick Louchouarn, and Association of Former Students Representative Kelli Hutka. Students, families, Faculty, and Staff are invited to participate.

The Last Lecture
At the end of the spring semester, prior to commencement, a faculty member will deliver the one topic they would talk about if this was to be the "last lecture" they would ever give to recognize the graduating Aggie Scholars. Graduating seniors who have won other academic awards or scholarships will be seated in a place of honor. A reception will follow where the students will receive their scholarships from TAMUG President Admiral Smith, Chief Academic Officer Patrick Louchouarn, and Association of Former Students Representative Kelli Hutka. Selected students, Faculty, and Staff will receive a formal invitation with RSVP instructions and ticket information.
