Texas A&M Appelt Aggieland Visitor Center

East Texas

You have to book ahead for a free walking tour offered by the visitor center. If you plan to explore the campus on your own, stop here first to pick up a map. Otherwise, how will you find the 6500lb of bronze 'Aggie' class ring at the Haynes Ring Plaza?
