Congratulations Graduates!


With a record-breaking spring graduating class - totaling approximately 7,300 - for Texas A&M University, it's no surprise that the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences would be setting records of its own. This year, the Department of Entomology celebrated the largest graduating class in its history on May 11, 2012. To that, we say hats off to all our outstanding graduates and good luck in all you do!
