A Texas Aggie is a current or former student of Texas A&M. Located here in Bryan / College Station, AKA Aggieland, the term Aggie can also, although not technically be used for Texas A&M supporters, like Aggie Moms or Dads (parents of an Aggie student) or Texas A&M supporters.

In keeping with the concept that Jeff Foxworthy became so widely successful for – “You might be a redneck if……”  I thought it would be fun to do something similar with – “You might be an Aggie if……..”.

Although not nearly as ridiculously successful as Jeff’s version, we’ll give it a shot. No humor included!!!!
