USU Aggie Passport Experience
Objectives: Through attendance at a variety of activities encouraged by the Aggie Passport program and its incentives, first-year students will:
- develop an increased awareness of campus events
- broaden their engagement in the university experience
- become more involved in the university community
At the beginning of fall semester, first-year students are introduced to the Aggie Passport Experience during the Connections course, English 1010 courses, and at “Day on the Quad.” Passport events are featured from four categories: academic, cultural, community and social. Students earn money for their Aggie Express account as well as an invitation to a reception at President and Mrs. Albrecht's home as they experience an array of university- and community-sponsored events. Returning students are also encouraged to participate. The passport is open to all registered students who have not previously turned in a completed passport.
Research indicates that there is a positive correlation between student success and attending and participating in campus events. President and Mrs. Albrecht have strongly endorsed the Aggie Passport Experience project saying, “We encourage all of our students to participate in the Aggie Experience program. The opportunities available will enhance every aspect of their life and provide memories that will last a lifetime.”
