"Hail the Utah Aggies..."


What is an "Aggie" anyway? How does one become a "True Aggie?" What's all the fuss about Aggie Ice Cream? Questions such as these have baffled several students and visitors as they have come to Utah State.

Since the founding of The Agricultural College of Utah in 1888, now known as Utah State University, many students have passed through this campus, but not without making their own mark.

Utah State has a great history that is rich with traditions. From the Be-no Club starting the "True Aggie" tradition and Gustav Wilster overseeing the production of Aggie Ice Cream, to the four "Founding Fathers" howling during final's week, Utah State is anything but short on tradition.

The goal of the Traditions Committee is to spread pride for our traditions campus-wide. We do this by promoting USU traditions through education and encouraging all students to participate in traditional events. With all these traditions, who wouldn't want to take part in this great university and "love the spot where the sagebrush grows?"
