Adidas Creates Custom Cleats for Texas A&M
The Texas A&M football team will have some custom-made cleats to wear this season to complete their…
Reveille, the first lady of Aggieland, is the official mascot of Texas A&M University. She is the highest ranking member of the Corps of Cadets being the only bearer of five silver diamonds.
Reveille VII was a registered Rough Collie born in Argent Kennel, which is part of the Animal Hospital of Ft. Lauderdale. She was donated to Texas A&M by Dr. Cindi Bossart, VMD, her husband Jim Efron and breeder Nancy MacDonald. Reveille arrived on campus on February 16, 2001 and officially took over duties from Reveille VI at the Corps of Cadets Final Review on May 12, 2001.
Reveille VII succumbed to a respiratory complication at about 10 a.m., said Dr. Stacy Eckman, the A&M veterinarian who had served as Reveille VII’s primary caregiver. She was 12-and-a-half-years old.
Reveille VII, the American Collie who served as Texas A&M’s mascot from 2001 to 2008, succumbed to a respiratory complication at about 10 a.m., said Dr. Stacy Eckman, the A&M veterinarian who had served as Reveille VII’s primary caregiver. She was 12-and-a-half-years old.
The 70-pound purebred was admitted to the Small Animal Clinic at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences on Tuesday morning and had emergency surgery that afternoon. Caregivers said Reveille VII seemed to be recovering well from pneumonia-like symptoms on Wednesday and that the Thursday downturn was sudden and unexpected.
“Up until Tuesday morning, she was very healthy,” Eckman said. “There were minor medical problems, but overall she was very healthy and had a good quality of life. It came on very suddenly, and she had a whole team of doctors here working on her, but in the end the best decision was made for her.”
Reveille VII, First Lady of Aggieland from 2001-2008, has passed away today.
Rest in peace, Miss Rev.
Guys, I’m so happy that registration is now open! I can’t wait for camp #fc13 #classof17 #tamu #aggie #awesome
I love my school because they do things that have never been done before.
ALWAYS apply early when in doubt. Early is always better for filling slots and for making sure your stuff gets to them on time. YES APPLY EARLY.
Yep, BIMS is hard. And, yes, I think ANSC is a bit less-hard. Not in a bad way, just in a requires-less-hard-science sort of way (You’ll find when you get here that BIMS and ANSC can be kind of competitive, and I’m not trying to put anyone down! I have tons of respect for ANSC majors, I promise!)
I’ve met plenty of BIMS majors who do well without tutoring (my roommate and I do pretty well on our own—but we’re both really good at science) so I hope that doesn’t scare anyone off. But if you have to go to tutoring, that is NOT a bad thing, so if you’re up for it you can learn a lot through the program.
If I had it to do over again, I would still choose BIMS. I’m graduating Friday, and I think my degree has gotten me where I wanted to go. I’m going to be starting vet school in August, and I feel like I’m prepared. But, I think lots of other people feel the same way about their majors, whatever they are!
And if anybody has questions about the vet school application—I’ve been there. It really sucks, I know. If you have anything you want to ask me, please do!
Howdy, Melodie, and congratulations on making it into A&M!
I can tell you a little bit about BIMS versus Animal Science, but of course I am not on the admissions board and don’t have any special insider info, so everything I say is based on my personal observations. This is going to be a little long-winded, so I put it under a cut to save the non-pre-vet people from the text!
It’s a gorgeous day and I’m going to miss this place over the summer.
