In 1963 the tradition of Texas A&M University was forever changed as the doors of the university were opened to women, our presence strengthening its academic and cultural life and making a permanent mark on the history of the institution. For over 50 years, women have entered the hallowed halls of the Memorial Student Center and have grown to comprise more than half of incoming students each year. Today women former students all over the world distinguish themselves in their careers and communities. By what we achieve in life and work and family, we honor our legacy as former students of Texas A&M University.
Women former students have a unique bond with the current women student body and with women faculty who teach and research to advance the greatness of Texas A&M. We are their sisters, daughters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, friends, colleagues, and mentors.
The Women Former Students’ Network legacy comes to life in many ways, one of which is financial.
The establishment of the Women’s Legacy Fund honored the 45 year anniversary of women’s admittance to Texas A&M University. This Fund provides monetary support to the women of Texas A&M completed in 2014. Meet our PES Scholarship Recipients, Kelly Albright ’14, Monique Pages ’18 and Morgan Riffe ’19.
