SOPHOMORES LEADING AND MOTIVATING
SLAM JAM is our annual fundraising event that is held during the Spring semester. It is a 3v3 basketball tournament that encourages students of all skill levels and backgrounds to participate in a friendly competition. All proceeds from this event go towards our philanthropy!
FALL & SPRING RETREATS
Each year our Social committee organizes a Fall and Spring retreat for our sophomores. This is a chance to get to bond with people outside your committee, as well as have fun with the friends you've made. Some of the locations we have spent our last retreats at are Caldwell and Emma Long Park in Austin and Lake Bryan!
NORTHGATE BAKE SALE
Our Fundies committee hosts the annual bake sale fundraiser held in the Fall semester. The sophomores bake cookies, brownies, and other treats with their committees and in turn sell them at Northgate. This past year we raised over $1,600! The proceeds from Bake Sale go directly towards our philanthropy, Voices for Children.
At the end of the year, each committee goes on a weekend long retreat together for one last hoorah together! This is a chance for the committees to celebrate all their hard work and to reflect on the friendships and memories they've made in SLAM. Some places committees have traveled to for their retreats are Austin, San Antonio, and Port Aransas!
Each semester, our Social committee hosts a formal to celebrate all of our hard work. These formals are a chance to dress up, take pictures, and have fun with SLAM. We sure do clean up nice!
THE BIG EVENT
Each year SLAM participates in The Big Event, a one-day service project in which Aggie student volunteers perform jobs for local community members. SLAM always looks forward to being able to serve our committee together through this organization!
SLAM volunteers with BUILD, a student organization at Texas A&M who builds and sends portable medical clinics around the world in honor of those who lost their lives in the collapse of the Aggie Bonfire.
ADOPT A STREET
SLAM adopted a street on Barron Road right in front of College Station High School. Each semester, our Service committee hosts clean up events open to all of SLAM to participate to ensure that our street looks nice and clean!
