ALOT taught me a great deal about myself, and what makes me unique compared to others. Along with that, ALOT helped me understand other people’s point of view and how important multiple contributions could be to a project, or anything.
ALOT showed me your family doesn’t just have to be the people you’re related to by blood. I’ve grown so much as a person and a leader, and know my future has been improved by these experiences.
MSC ALOT has not only given me relationships that will last throughout college and beyond, but has also given me multiple incredible opportunities to grow both as a leader and as an individual. I would not be able to communicate or work with people as well as I do today if it weren’t for MSC ALOT.

MSC Aggie Leaders of Tomorrow, established in 1978, was the first model of what a Freshmen Leadership Organization was at Texas A&M University. Originally known as Freshmen Leadership Dynamics, this organization served as an inspiration for many new organizations to form throughout the school’s history. As an organization, we impact the university through campus wide programs such as Freshmen Western, Mr. FLO, the Big Leadership Trip, Angel Tree, and more. Spending their freshman year in MSC ALOT prepares our members for leadership positions across campus. Former members have gone on to become Yell Leaders, MSC Presidents, Student Body Presidents, campus wide leaders and successful businessmen and businesswomen.
MSC ALOT is dedicated to developing excellent student leaders. In addition to working on major campus programs, our freshmen members are place in a social small group (Team) with two sophomore Group Leaders. Teams allow our members to meet new people, have fun and transition into college life while growing as an individual. Internally, our members participate in a number of events including a football tailgate, retreats, end of the year banquet, Parent’s Weekend and monthly socials called Month Buddies. Additionally, our member are very involved in campus traditions and other student activities including The Big Event, Replant and Special Olympics.
