NMSU Aggie Alumni love reconnecting with fellow Aggies and reminiscing about their time at NMSU. However, one way for Alumni Chapters to come together and give back at the same time is through an event we call #AggieServe! This type of event is about Alumni joining their collective forces to give back to their communities.

When you need a break from watch parties and other social gatherings, #AggieServe events are a great way to bring Alumni together to serve those around you. In the past, the Albuquerque (Crimson Central) Chapter has volunteered at the Carrie Tingley Hospital Mudd Volleyball event. The El Paso Chapter and Idaho-area Alumni have also partnered with their local food banks for a half-day to support families in need.

The best part is that planning is easy! Simply find an organization or an event in your area seeking volunteers, and rally up your Aggie troops to serve. Make sure you let the Office of Alumni Relations know about your event, so that we can help recruit more volunteers from your area and equip you with any Aggie gear you'll need to spread the word about how devoted our Alumni are to their communities.
