Excellence uniting Culture, Education, and Leadership (ExCEL) is a student organization and freshman involvement program designed to help freshmen find academic, social, and personal balance at Texas A&M. ExCEL assists freshmen in making a smooth transition from high school to college, fosters a community where students can culturally identify, forges new relationships, informs students about various campus opportunities and services, and builds a support system through peer mentors.
2015 EXCEL ORIENTATION CONFERENCE
The full Fall ExCEL program launches with the ExCEL Orientation Conference at the end of summer. This two-day celebration of culture, education, and leadership is held the weekend before Fall classes begin, familiarizing participants with the program and campus life at Texas A&M. Participants are divided into groups led by two upper-class peer mentors who guide them through the semester program. The orientation conference consists of:
• Motivational speakers
• Peer group discussions
• Performances by student organizations
• Meet and greet activities
• Introduction to peers & mentors
EXCEL 2015 FALL PROGRAMS
Following the Conference, ExCEL peer mentors provide a support network to their freshman groups by facilitating academic, social, and cultural activities throughout the Fall semester. These semester-long activities include social networking opportunities, community service projects, and a seminar series covering topics relevant to first-year student development. Students planning to participate in ExCEL must register for the Orientation Conference.
