Texas A&M at Qatar students celebrate Muster with Aggie alumni

Published Apr 27, 2009

Students at Texas A&M at Qatar carried on an important Aggie tradition last week by hosting Aggie Muster in Education City for almost 200 people. "This year, our main focus was to promote Muster to our current students, particularly since Muster is one of the most important traditions to Texas A&M," said Emily Yates, a student development specialist in the Department of Student Affairs.

"In addition, since Muster, like other A&M traditions, was started by and for students, we wanted to make any changes necessary to accommodate our current students, while maintaining the scope and focus of Aggie Muster." This year's Muster was led by a student committee headed by Tausif Ahmed '09 and Misam Jaffer '10. The first Muster at Texas A&M at Qatar was held in 2004; the annual event was a relatively small affair the first few years, with former students living in Doha making up most of the attendees, Yates said. The tradition has quickly grown and students are just beginning to see the importance and impact of Muster, she added.
