Howdy Jewish Aggie Class of 2024!

As the Chabad Jewish Student board, we would like to give you a warm welcome to your new home in Aggieland! While we acknowledge that this is an incredibly strange time to be joining the Jewish Aggie Family, we want to let you know that we are always here for you.

This is a warm, welcoming, and caring group of people who will be there for you during college and beyond. We are truly a family here, and we will not allow the pandemic to break our family bond. Every single one of us remember our experience starting at Texas A&M and all the emotions we felt when beginning our Aggie journey. It’s exciting, it’s overwhelming, and this year, it’s definitely like no other.

That is exactly the reason that we are committed to making your Freshman experience the absolute BEST experience it can possibly be.We understand things will be conducted differently than a typical semester at Texas A&M, but that will not stop our dedication to giving you an amazing first semester and authentic Aggieland experience as a member of the Jewish Aggie Family.

No matter what the circumstances are, we are here to tell you that you have a home away from home in the Jewish Aggie Family at Chabad. We are here for you, no matter what challenges come your way. If you need a ride, advice about extracurriculars, help with studying, or any questions in general about A&M or Jewish Aggie life, we are always happy to help. All of us on the board come from all different backgrounds and hometowns are available to help in any capacity we can. If there is anything you need, know that you can always reach out to us.
