Welcome back to your home away from home. BCA is focused on providing our alumni with a quality touch-point as a way to reconnect with A&M. And also reengage with life before 5 kids, going to bed early, and starting a 401(k)--whatever that is. Check out the events we have coming up for you.
Welcome back to A&M, Whoop! Throwback to the days before doing things like purchasing tickets, not standing, and awkward invitations. BCA welcomes you home at Aggie Park with quality, filling, and an engaging tailgate.
Hosted by the Board of Formers, this event offers formers a spring weekend to connect with each other and spend the evening with the current active body. Frick your phony work retreat. Be with the real ones.
When: April 1 - 2, 2022
With a focus on mentorship and post-grad community, many formers set up gatherings to hang out with current members and other alumni. Coming soon to a Top Golf near you.
When: May 7 - August 7
Did BCA make it?
Yes. We're on year 26 and going strong.
"This fall we inducted the 2023 Pledge Class which consisted of 28 men. They were taken through an 11-week pledgeship process, like what many of you have gone through during your time in BCA. The purpose of this pledgeship process is that these 28 guys fall more in love with Jesus Christ and grow through spiritual, mental, and physical challenges, to become the best men they can be. While buy-in to BCA is important, the main goal is that these men learn to lead on campus, lead their future wives and families, lead in their careers, and ultimately glorify God in every stage of their lives.
"In addition, we’ve hosted the most bought-in active body—I believe—BCA may have ever seen. Super tight bonds have been formed, involvement in BCA’s extra-curricular functions has increased, and outside activity buy-in (i.e., Big Event, group trips) has increased.
"This Spring semester has consisted of guys serving at S.O.S. Ministries, playing in our philanthropic pickleball event, attending a formal in Austin, and getting hyped during the annual BCA cup. This spring semester is rolling right along with the Pledge Trainer election last week and EC elections right around the corner.

What should alumni expect in 2023-2024?
In the fall, a quality tailgate* with plenty of food and water for a lot of standing (Liquid I.V. must be purchased separately). Please bring any other beverage you wish to consume, as the budget pretty much caps at the water (we promise to deliver the food). Current members will be present.
As for the spring, a detailed itinerary for the BOF: Former's Weekend*, will be sent out to alumni via email, detailing a fun and refreshing weekend spent being social, active, and relaxing. And yes, we will go to Northgate (starting at the Chicken).
Summer meet-ups are happening. Make sure Matt Barnes, the head of the BOF, has your phone number and address.
*all communications for details will be sent via email list
