The Women Former Students’ Network ("Aggie Women Network") was incorporated in 2007 on the 45th anniversary of the admission of women to Texas A&M University. Today, we reach over 2,000 Aggie Women. Our members live across the United States and in 6 countries, and Aggie Women span all disciplines and nearly every class year since 1964.
We formed Aggie Women Network to give back to the University that gave us so much. Our mission is to promote the active engagement of women in the educational, charitable and cultural life of the university. We accomplish this by connecting women former students with current students, faculty, staff and each other. Annually, the Aggie Women Network recognizes the achievements of women former students through the Women’s Legacy Awards and support two current students through Presidential Endowed Scholarships.
