Muster is one of the most time-honored traditions at Texas A&M, and is held on April 21 every year. Informal gatherings began as early as 1883, but the event was officially recognized in 1922. What Texas A&M students feel is not just the camaraderie of fellow Aggies, it is the Spirit of hundreds of thousands of Aggies who have gone before us, and who will come after us. Muster is how that Spirit is remembered and celebrated, and it will always continue to unite Texas A&M and the Aggie family. Today, Muster is celebrated at more than 300 locations worldwide.
