• About BUILD

    BUILD is a student led organization aimed at unifying Texas A&M’s student body. Our goal is to connect students from all organizations, all academic colleges, and all corners of Texas A&M through a physically uniting effort. We encourage students to interact and work alongside each other throughout the processes of planning, organizing, and constructing the project. Our long-term vision is to establish our own ‘BUILD’ neighborhood comprised of houses in honor of those who lost their lives in the collapse of the Aggie Bonfire, as it was a tradition that pursued these same Aggie Core Values.

  • BUILD 2014

    In order to further spread the tradition of unity on Texas A&M’s campus, BUILD will be constructing Mobile Medical Units this year. These units will be referred to as Texas Aggie Medical Units, and will be constructed using donated shipping containers, which will then be converted into medical facilities. These Aggie Medical Units will be transported to international or domestic locations of medical need. We are partnering with a company who will help us construct and export these units as well. The units will be self- contained and ready to use anywhere in the world, providing an important resource for medical disaster relief in areas with poor infrastructure. Aggie Medical Units will be constructed on campus at Simpson Drill Field in the Fall 2014 semester.

  • BUILD 2013

    In 2013, BUILD helped out a family in need in the Bryan area. In partnership with Habitat for Humanity, BUILD volunteers were able to construct a home for the Vasquez Family. Marisa Vasquez is a mother of three, and knew that a better home would make her children very happy. We were honored to provide this family with a sturdy roof over their head, built in Aggie spirit and camaraderie.

BUILD’s purpose is to unite the student body of Texas A&M through a large scale, physically uniting service project.

Honoring bonfire

BUILD is an organization created to honor those who died in the bonfire and the Aggie bonfire tradition. It does this by bringing students all over campus back together to 'swing a hammer.' The link below shows the significance of Aggie bonfire.

"BUILD exemplifies the Aggie core values on many levels. Selfless Service has the ability to unite our student body and teach leadership principles in a way that can only be found at Texas A&M University."

Reid Joseph Texas A&M University Student Body President

"With all of the exciting growth and change at Texas A&M, there has never been a more crucial time to remain true to who we are as Texas Aggies as well as remain rooted in our traditions. Our vision is for BUILD to become a lasting tradition that will unite students under our core value of selfless service."

Dr. Karan L. Watson Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs

"The BUILD effort is a great illustration of several of our Aggie core values put into practice by our students. The collective commitment to ideals such as selfless service to our society and loyalty to each other sets our University apart and prepares our students for their futures. I am exceptionally proud of these students finding their own way to show how Aggies Commit to Learning for Lifetime!"
