Texas A&M Freshmen Academic Convocation

  • TxAM-CRS 456
  • Collection
  • 2003-2014

This collection contains materials relating to freshman convocation.

From 2003-2011 the archives would receive the schedule of events, the official program, and a VHS, CD, or DVD (formatting progressed through the years) of the convocation. Occasionally a "gift" was included that the incoming freshmen were given to aid them in their first year away from home.

In 2006, the gift became standardized as a drawstring laundry bag one could put their clothes in and throw in the wash or use to carry their personal items to and from laundry facilities. The bag has a solid piece of materials across the center where "Freshman Convocation" along with the year is printed, and a blank spot for the bag owner's name. (Laundry bags were not given to the archive for the years 2009-2011).

In 2013, Freshman Convocation t-shirts were added to the archive accessions.
