Why I Give
Jul 18, 2019Fifty years ago, Ersen Arseven ’74 made a life-altering choice, deciding to pursue his Ph.D. in statistics at Texas A&M University.

Feb 21, 2019Debbie McLean and Mike Dishberger both arrived on the Texas A&M campus in fall 1975 -- Debbie '79 majoring in geophysics and Mike '79 studying chemistry. Present day, the Dishbergers have endowed $1 million in gifts to help undergraduate and graduate students in Texas A&M Science and Texas A&M Geosciences for generations to come.
