What Are They?

Aggie points are an award system used to encourage halls to show school, hall, and community pride. Aggie points can be awarded to completing items like attending RHA and NRHH general body meetings, submitting photos of events and programs, even writing Of the Month (OTMs) awards and MORE. Ultimately these Aggie points lead to winning the AggieTrophy, which will be announced at the Residence Life Recognition Night at the end of spring semester.

*Aggie: (n) – an agricultural school or college; also : a student at such an institution (Merriam-Webster)

For 62 years there was an ‘Aggie Era’ of mascots before Colorado Sate University ‘officially’ adopted the Ram as their mascot.

**Aggie Points are loosely adapted from UNC paw points.
