After being admitted to Texas A&M University, the New Student Conference (NSC) is the first experience all incoming Aggies participate in before starting classes. The NSC is the first experience all incoming students have toward making their time here in Aggieland the best it can be.
During the NSC, a lot of important information is given to new students and their guests. Going to all programs at your NSC are to the benefit of all students and family members. It is during these programs when valuable information about on campus services, registration, involvement, and many other important topics are discussed.
In addition, the chance to make lifelong friends begins at the NSC. There are many opportunities for students to interact with fellow Aggies throughout their NSC.
Go into the NSC with an open mind about not only the different people you will meet, but also about the information that will be shared. The content shared with new students and their guests will ease your transition to A&M.
The best advice I have to give is to not be afraid to start conversations with new people. Saying “howdy” can be the start of a new journey and making lasting friendships here at A&M. Know that you are truly becoming an Aggie by taking this first step of attending your NSC, a memory you will hold forever.
