Alums host early graduation celebration "on the Patio"

Stackhouse event

DH2 and D4 students relaxed with Alums and enjoyed an early graduation celebration “on the Patio” recently  at the Stackhouse, the popular eatery across from the dental school.  A free beverage and appetizers, and fun door prizes were provided compliments of the College of Dentistry Alumni Association! 

It was another great opportunity to visit with alumni board members and classmates! 

See more pictures of the fun event.

Let the games begin!

 Volleys begin within minutes of the ribbon cutting for students’ new ping-pong and foosball tables, gifts from the Texas A&M College of Dentistry Alumni Association.  

A crowd of students huddled around the table for the informal ceremony, joined by staff from the Office of Student Affairs, Office of Advancement, Communications & Alumni Relations, and the Alumni Association’s president-elect, Dr. Joe Simmons ’98, ’99, and secretary-treasurer, Dr. Danette McNew ’88.
