Fun trip to the A&M Campus
If you are an Aggie or have an Aggie in your family then you know who Reveille is. In case you dont know, Reveille is the school mascot. This spot is just outside Kyle field and is where they have laid to rest all the past mascots. Next time you visit A&M make sure you stop by. Its part of the history and heritage of all Aggies.

Right outside the football stadium. Love the new small scoreboard for the former Reveilles. Great stop if your in the area to show kids a little Aggie history.

Texas A&M never really had an official mascot until the late 1920 and 30s. Some students were driving back to College Station when they accidentally hit a dog crossing the road. They decided to take her with them and nurse her back to health. The dog decided to adopt Aggieland as her new home. She would proudly march in front of the Corp of Cadets and became much loved by all the students and faculty. She would get excited when the bugler played Reveille, possibly because she learned that meant her friends were getting up to play. Eventually, the name stuck. It became a wonderful tradition to try and get Reveille to bark at you so you could call her Rev. If you came to your room and she was on your bed you got to lay on the floor. Reveille became the Highest Ranking member of the Corps of Cadets and the Student Body. As everyone eventually does, Reveille passed away, and was buried behind the North End Zone of Kyle Field so she could see the Fighten Texas Aggie Football score for eternity. The search was on for Reveille II and that is when the Iconic Collie was adopted as Mascot. Over the years and Kyle Field renovations the graves have been moved. Real controversy ensued in the Aggie Family when our Past Rev's could no longer see the score board. It's not a compromise many Old Aggies like, but that's why there is a Score Board next to the graves so Rev can still know the Score. Make sure this is one of many stops on your visit to the Tradition Rich Campus of Texas A&M.
