Aggies In Action Can Make a Difference Around the World

One of the most well-known traditions here at USU is A-Week. Historically, during A-Day students could participate in events like a free lunch, assemblies, a football game on the Quad, and a special student body dance.

What started as A-Day has evolved into a week full of USU Student Alumni Association sponsored events and service projects called A-Week. If you've ever participated in A-Week, you know some of the most popular events are True Aggie Night, Admissions service auction, Robins Awards ceremony, and the Senior Celebration.

This year, we’re pushing to return to the service oriented nature of the original A-Day. No matter where you live or what you do now, you’ll always be an Aggie, and Aggies everywhere embody the USU brand. You have the power to change for good through your service, careers, and philanthropy.

We’d like you to show your pride in USU by volunteering in service activities, participating in Aggie traditions, and giving back to help current Aggies. By using the five steps and banners with the hashtag #AggiesInAction, we ask you to document your acts of service and post stories, pictures, and videos to our page

Also, if you submit your story to our page, you could win a free, exclusive #AggiesInAction t-shirt!

Here are the five steps:

1.Volunteer your time to help someone during A-Week 
2. Take a photo holding the #AggiesInAction banner, or with your Aggie gear on 
3. Share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and don't forget to add #AggiesInAction 
4. Upload your photo or story of #AggiesInAction here for a chance to win an exclusive T-shirt 
5. Help a current Aggie by giving to the Student Emergency Fund here. 

Help us keep the tradition of A-Week alive by finding a way to get involved and showing your Aggie pride.
