Lot 18 Parking Permit [24 Sep 2010|10:44am]

My parking permit was stolen out of my locked parked car yesterday.  It's for lot 18 on West Campus at the HSC, where my car was parked at the time.  If you see anyone selling or giving a permit away report them to the police.  Don't try to use the permit or you will be ticketed and immediately towed. It's already been reported stolen.

Gig 'em, Aggies!

Here [21 Apr 2010|03:10pm]

In many lands and climes this April day
Proud sons of Texas A&M unite.
Our loyalty to country, school, we pray,
and seal our pact with bond of common might.
We live again those happy days of yore
on campus, field, in classroom, dorm, at drill
Fond memory brings a sigh -- but nothing more;
Now we are men and life’s a greater thrill,
On Corregidor    *    years ago today
A band of gallant Aggies, led by Moore,
Held simple rites which led to us doth all to say:
The spirit shall prevail through cannon roar.
Before we part and go upon our way,
We pause to honor those we knew so well;
The old familiar faces we miss so much today
Left cherished recollections that time cannot dispel.
Softly call the Muster,
Let comrade answer, “Here!”
Their spirits hover ‘round us
As if to bring us cheer!
Mark them ‘present’ in our hearts.
We’ll meet some other day
There is no death, but life etern
For our old friends such as they!
by Dr. John Ashton ‘06

* The third stanza is original to the poem and had been deleted over the years. It was intended that each year, the number of years since Corregidor would be inserted.

In the wake of today's horrible Fort Hood tragedy, you can help!

All blood types are needed, especially O negative as it is universal.

The Blood Center of the Brazos Valley accommodates walk ins or you can call to find out how to help.

Don't forget if you are in town come by Bryan Towne Center today (by the new Target in Bryan) and give blood and/or donate supplies for the troops. We will be out there from 12PM to 4PM. We had a great turnout yesterday at Independence Harley Davidson in College Station. I am hoping today will be an even better day!

One person donating blood can save up to three lives! All donations at this drive should help someone in our community as it will be supplied to local hospitals such as St Joseph and College Station Medical Center. If you cannot donate during the drive today, you can still donate at the blood center. Visit http://givebloodbv.org for more information or you can email bcsjaycees@gmail.com if you need more information as well.

If you donate you will receive a discount coupon at one of several local restaurants, while supplies last.

Car Radio [12 Jan 2009|05:11pm]


I'm looking to get a new deck for a car... and I was wondering if anybody had a suggestions on where I could purchase it (that would install) in the B/CS region, other than Best Buy?

Cheap 17" Monitor! [10 Jan 2009|05:16pm]

Does anyone want a 17" MAG monitor? It is an older model (not flat panel) but is in great working condition. I replaced with with my tax stimulus because I wanted a flat panel, otherwise I would still be using it. I can deliver it to anywhere in the BCS area if needed. I am only asking $20, and that is negotiable.

Or - does anyone know a place in town that buys used monitors?

Quality Salon / Hair Stylist Recommendations? [11 Dec 2008|05:55pm]


I'm looking for a good place to get a haircut in B/CS. I'd prefer to go to someone that considers this a passion, not a job. (I.e., not Great Clips, etc.) Any recommendations are much appreciated!

Posted via LiveJournal.app.

Edit: FYI, I wound up going to the French Door. They did a fairly good job (don't remember who it was that cut, though). Would recommend them in general.

[ mood | cheerful ]


The above site has all the info you need, come on out and help make Christmas special for Brazos Valley children who might not otherwise have much of a Christmas. It's all about the kids! The toy drive starts at 6AM on Thursday 12/4 and goes until 10AM Monday 12/8. Visit the above website for more information.

They accept new and gently used toys. If it's not working quite right but is in otherwise good condition, bring it anyhow, because we may be able to fix it before sending it out. (However if it's missing a remote, probably we can't replace that easily.) If you bring gifts they need to be unwrapped before we can distribute them, so please don't wrap them. Kids range in age from infants to teens. They are also in need of batteries, as we put new batteries in all the toys before they go out. You can also donate through paypal on the website. Please help if you can.

Anyone in the B/CS area that wants to help out with Hurricane Ike relief efforts might want to go here (http://studentactivities.tamu.edu/articles/hurricane_relief) for a list of volunteer opportunities organized by Student Activities.  They need lots of volunteers, with all kinds of skill sets, and lots of supplies.

A&M Will Be Closed Friday Sept. 12

September 11, 2008

To the Aggie Family,

Texas A&M University will be closed Friday (Sept. 12) as a precautionary measure as Hurricane Ike nears the Texas coast and tropical storm winds and heavy rain are projected to reach the Bryan-College Station area.

All campus offices will be closed and classes cancelled, meaning only essential personnel—those involved in security and preparing the campus for the adverse weather — are to report for work Friday. Also, all university-related activities scheduled for Friday or over the weekend are cancelled, including the 2008 Academic Convocation, which has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date. Also, Investiture and Convocation-related activities planned for this evening have been postponed. International guests here for the investiture and now needing special accommodations are advised to contact the Office of the Provost at 845-4016.

Students who reside in dormitories are strongly encouraged to remain in their campus accommodations, and those off campus will have the option of being accommodated in G. Rollie White Coliseum. University employees and their families are also invited to be accommodated at G. Rollie White. Those choosing this option must bring adequate bedding and non-perishable food.

Reed Arena is being used as a facility to accommodate up to 500 special medical needs patients from other parts of the state.

Students contemplating leaving the campus because of weather conditions are advised that highways will be congested because of evacuations throughout the southern portion of the state. If you elect to go home or elsewhere Friday or over the weekend, please take extra precautions.

Employees with any questions about their status as “essential personnel” should check with their supervisors.

We anticipate that classes will resume and offices reopen on Monday, but you are encouraged to monitor the university Web site at www.tamu.edu.

Selling books [23 Aug 2008|02:55pm]
Howdy, guys, I'm trying to get rid of my excess books and I only have a few left. This probably tells me that they're probably not wanted anymore. But it couldn't hurt to try, eh? I'm not selling them for the money at this point but just to get them off my hands. They're all very fairly under-priced. ;)

  • MGMT 209/211 with Swim The Legal Environment of Business Fourth Edition. The listing ends tonight, but if it doesn't sell, I'll put it up for one more week.

    • If you want, I will send along my student study guide with it for no extra cost/shipping. It's crammed with notes and doodles, but if you think it might help you, I'd be very happy to send it along.

  • MKTG 309 Marketing 13th edition

  • What used to be ELEN 220/248 but is now ECEN 248 Digital Design

  • MATH 302 or Discrete Math Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications

  • POLS 206 Promise and Performance of American Democracy

I don't know what to do with them if I can't sell them.

New to Aggieland [22 Aug 2008|08:23pm]

I just moved to College Station from Southern California/Northern Arizona to go to Graduate School so I have MANY questions, but will try to keep it tame :)

Where can I find out about what plays/musicals will be on campus/near campus?

Where is your favorite place to eat in town (local preferred)?

What are some fun recreational things to do nearby (ie swimming somewhere)?

Thanks all!
