If you're a new student joining our #JagFam, or you're continuing on your journey, we are excited to welcome all of you for the Fall 2021 semester. The First 50 Days includes programs students should attend during the first weeks on campus.  By attending and participating in these programs, students will have the ability to learn about involvement opportunities on campus, become part of the A&M-SA campus, engage in community wide-events, and enhance their connection to being a Jaguar!  

We have created the General's Events Challenge: The First 50 Days!

  • Leadership
  • Diversity
  • Engage (Campus & Community Engagement)
  • Wellness

When you attend these events, virtually or in person, be sure to have your Jaguar ID present, ready to enter or scan. Your progress will be tracked via JagSync!
