Kicking Off The Season With Football Thursday


March 20, 2019


Texas A&M has once again been invited to move our first football game of the season from Saturday, August 31 to Thursday, August 29. We have agreed to this Thursday game as, similar to last year, this opportunity allows us to highlight our university and wonderful student athletes for a national audience.

We will hold classes as usual that Thursday and will take numerous actions to ensure that we can continue our normal class and research activities, including providing access to all academic facilities on the normal university schedule and more flexible and accommodating parking privileges for faculty and essential staff. Many of these actions were taken last year, while others have been added or modified based on knowledge gained from last year’s game.

The information we have at this time that may affect students, faculty and staff is available at the Football Thursday website. Similar to last year, additional updates will be provided as game day approaches.

Jerry Strawser, Executive Vice President and CFO, will once again convene a task force including all campus constituent groups to provide further recommendations as needed.

Thank you for your patience as we all work together to ensure both a successful class day and game day.

Gig 'em Aggies!
