It was seven years ago today...



On September 17, 1998, I recieved my Aggie Ring. I can hardly believe that it has already been seven years but then again, I can't believe that it has now been more than ten years since I graduated from high school.

Getting my ring was one of the biggest accomplishments of my life up to that point. I still wear it every day as do most of the hundreds of thousands of Aggie graduates around the world. The thing that I like most about my ring is the instant connection that it provides to other Aggies. Whenever I see someone with an Aggie Ring, I introduce myself and likewise, many Aggies have stopped me to introduce themselves as well. To me it represents the common bond that we have regardless of any of our differences.

September 17 was a great day! Just look how happy me and my friends were!
