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 by fostering a community where they can culturally identify. Since 1987, ExCEL has assisted freshmen in making a smooth transition from high school to college by orienting freshmen to the program through a Gig ‘Em Week conference, cultivating relationships between peers and mentors, providing a sense of belonging through ExCEL cultural communities, offering academic support services, and serving as a resource for transitioning into Aggie life.
Following the Conference, academic, social, and cultural activities begin through the close of the spring semester. Activities include a cultural community events, seminar series covering topics relevant to students of various cultural and ethnic identities, mentor engagement activities, study halls, community service projects, and socials!
