Sanders Corps of Cadets Center

(258)

Inextricably linked in history, Texas A&M University and its Corps of Cadets honor their past, acknowledge the present, and look to the future through exhibits in the Sam Houston Sanders Corps of Cadets Center. As you step through the doors, it’s obvious that you have entered a special place that strives to preserve the history, flavor, and mystique of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets from its beginning in 1876 to today. Exhibits addressing the famous Aggie traditions, born in the Corps, make it easy to understand why Aggies are so loyal. Recognition of Aggie contributions to state and nation is a common thread. In addition, the Metzger-Sanders Firearms Collection is one of the most important antique and commemorative firearm collections available to the public. Its value lies in the number and condition of the collection. The collection, with weapons dating back to the 14th century, presents a physical timeline of the history of firearms. The Sanders Corps of Cadets Center is a must-see for truly understanding what makes Texas A&M a unique American institution.
