Whoopin' Weekend 2024

Picture & Video Link
Whoopin' Weekend Official Logo

The Whoopin' Weekend Conference is a three day program in the spring semester where high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors get a first hand look of what Texas A&M University is all about. Participants get the opportunity to take part in discussion groups with members of the Aggie Recruitment Committee, as well as connect with other high school students from across the nation. In addition to discussion groups, participants will also get the chance to be a part of a mixer, receive valuable information about majors, and spend a couple of nights in Aggieland.

Family members, along with the participants, are invited to join us for informational presentations on admissions, residence life, financial aid, Traditions Council, and a session with a student panel. Students must attend the ENTIRE conference.  ​

Whoopin' Weekend has helped create many friendships and new contacts for participants to help them with the transition from high school to college.

When there aren't any university sports in town for the weekend, don't worry! Whoopin' Weekend still delivers on the fun; we went to Big Shots in Bryan instead at the last conference!
