5 Things Every Aggie Should Have Put On Their Christmas List
David Beale

1. A Collie

“Daddy PLEASE. Can we please get a dog for Christmas?”

“No. Absolutely not.”

“Well… What if we get a purebred Rough Collie?”

“I’ll call the breeder in the morning.”

2. Added lanes to Holleman, George Bush, and Wellborn

Please--For the love of all things good and holy, we need more sophisticated roadways in College Station. It’s as if the Texas A&M Board of Regents and The College Station City Council got together and said “Hey! Let’s build a billion-dollar football stadium, enroll thousands upon thousands of additional students, and do absolutely nothing with our streets.”

Wait a minute… That’s exactly what happened! People forget that College Station used to be a FARM TOWN. Our roads are not capable of handling the amount of people that are being pumped into this city every year. Oh, and by the way, considering most of these kids are college students, they all have cars and they all drive by themselves, creating the worst traffic known to man on a small-town level.

Bottom line—Just expand the roads. Please.

3. A Scholarship

Okay, the cat is officially out of the bag, and that cat is Jimbo Fisher. Jimbo, I would like to personally thank you for exposing the endless pot of gold that is Texas A&M’s bank account. Texas A&M has roughly 50,000 undergraduate students, and according to my calculations, Jimbo Fisher’s contract contains enough guaranteed money to give every undergraduate student a $1500 scholarship. Therefore, the next time that I walk into the Scholarships & Financial Aid Office, I refuse to take “We’ve used all the money we have” as an answer.

4. An Above-Par Football Team

Back to Jimbo Fisher. I hope you’re worth the money my man. With the facilities A&M has and the recruiting pool the state of Texas has to offer, we should be a national championship contender. Now—That’s what we should be. However, I just ask that we be above average, for now. I’m tired of 7-5 and

8-4. Let’s start by shooting for 9-3 or 10-2 next year then we’ll build from there. Let’s be honest, everyone is trying to become the next Alabama and there simply isn’t another Alabama. So, let’s try to simply be a better Texas A&M.

5. An Aggie Ring

Last but most certainly not least, the Aggie Ring. The greatest testament to becoming a member of the hallowed Aggie Family. Logistically, the Aggie Ring goes for about $1000 nowadays so the idea of getting one for Christmas doesn’t sound too bad. However, to obtain an Aggie Ring in general is on every true Aggie’s bucket list, and if you are an underclassman at A&M, it better be on your list next Christmas season.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
