Texas A&M University has a host of outstanding programs to help new students begin their academic careers successfully, but the one that most makes them a part of the Aggie Family -- and the first tradition that new students experience -- is Fish Camp.



Texas A&M’s unique orientation program for freshmen -- who are called “fish” in Aggieland -- is a series of four-day camps during which the new Aggies spend time with upperclassmen who have volunteered as camp counselors. The vast majority of the incoming freshman class of about 8,000 students will attend one of this year’s seven sessions of Fish Camp.



Members of the first Fish Camp session for the class of 2015 will gather Monday, Aug. 1, outside Reed Arena, where they will be welcomed to Aggieland. They will then board buses to travel to an East Texas Piney Woods encampment near Palestine.



During their time at camp, the new students will learn about Aggie traditions and the university’s core values: integrity, excellence, leadership, loyalty, respect, and selfless service. They will also learn about the university’s 800 student organizations and how to join them, how to find the help they may need while on campus, and much more. By the time they leave the camp, many of the students will have formed lasting friendships.



The last Fish Camp session will begin Friday, Aug. 19, and end Monday, Aug. 22, the week before fall semester classes begin on Monday, Aug. 29.



The days at camp are filled with information sessions and fun. They also include team-building exercises such as intramural sports and small-group discussions. Each evening, special guests are brought in as motivational speakers for “campfire” programs.



For more information, call the Fish Camp office at 979-845-1627 or visit http://fishcamp.tamu.edu/.
