The last time we were there was in 2009 when we went to a couple of weddings in CS, but I haven't been on campus since 2005 and Chris has never had the chance to actually walk around. Wow, what a difference a couple of years make! Our first stop was the Memorial Student Center, or MSC, and that place sure has changed! It looks so nice on the inside, and I'm glad to see that they still kept the student living room and my favorite part - the wood carvings of A&M's history.
We made a quick stop into the bookstore, which is now a Barnes and Noble.
Loved seeing t-shirts that incorporated the Aggies' new home in the SEC. On the other hand seeing shirts for the class of 2016 made me feel really old!
After the MSC, we checked out Kyle Field home of Aggie football and then walked over to the new Blue Bell park for baseball.
With the heat beating down on us, I decided to skip walking over to Mays Business school which is where I spent the majority of my junior and senior years. After making our way through all of the construction (both on campus and down University), we enjoyed an early lunch at Freebirds on Northgate.
I really wanted to add my name to the bricks, but I didn't have a marker or pen with me.
On the way out of town we made one last side trip to taste some wine at Messina Hof.
I haven't been to the winery since my graduation weekend and was happy to learn that they have opened another location down in Fredericksburg.
It was a short trip, but I'm so glad I was able to see some of the changes to campus and share some of my college memories with Chris.
