Iron Spikes is the premier social, spirit and service men's organization at Texas A&M University. We were founded in 2000 by a group of young men who were looking to support the Texas A&M Baseball team and give back to the community. Our founders emphasized on the building of fraternal bonds between members through tailgates, social events, and intramural sports. Since then, iron spikes has grown to become one of the premier men's organizations at Texas A&M.
Maggies is the oldest women's organization on campus. Established in 1999 by a group of young women who aimed to forge lasting bonds of friendship, Maggies has become a unique place for women from all walks of life to gather and grow alongside one another. We believe that immersing oneself in a group of passionate, diverse women is a catalyst for transformation. Maggies is a name reclaimed. In 1963, when women and people of color were first admitted to Texas A&M University female students were called Maggies. This term diminished women to second class students, implying that they weren’t real Aggies. In 1999, our founders chose this name to “honor the pioneering women who paved the way for future female students.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters recruits community volunteers (Big Brothers/Big Sisters) to match them with at-risk youth (Little Brothers/Little Sisters). Bigs provide encouragement, friendship, guidance and support to children in need of a positive and caring adult role model in their life. Studies show that children matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister are less likely to use illegal drugs or alcohol, less likely to skip school, are more confident in their school performance, and more trusting of parents and guardians. BBBS was founded in 1904 by a court clerk who saw boys coming through the court had one thing in common-no father in their lives. He believed a positive male role model could help them stay out of trouble. BBBS recognizes the value of prevention, providing a positive adult role model for children before they get in trouble in the first place. They have children in their program who already have troubles such as low grades, poor school attendance, discipline problems, or who live in environments that put them at risk for developing problems. Other children in the program are doing well and they want to help keep it that way. This cause is especially close to our hearts as some of our own members are mentors to kids in the Bryan/College Station community. Our members can tell you first hand just how impactful these relationships are for not only the kids, but us as well. We learn from them, we share wonderful experiences together, but most importantly we give these kids the opportunity to just hang out and do what they do best- be kids. BBBS is a 100% volunteer and donor supported organization, meaning that our donations to them every year are crucial. All money donated helps BBBS provide programs to children in our community who need it the most.
