About the Boot Loan Program

Across the Texas A&M University campus, senior cadets can be heard before they are seen. There is a distinct sound that senior boots make...the jingle of the spurs and the sound of the taps let you know they are around. These boots represent a road less traveled, perseverance, and grit on the part of each cadet. Senior cadets should have the opportunity to wear the boots they earned yet some do not have the financial resources to purchase them. Some just like the idea of walking the Quad in a pair that harks back to the days of “Ol’ Army.” Whatever the reason, as always, Aggies have each other's backs.

The Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets Association is excited to announce that it is now managing the Senior Boot Loan Program, for which over 630 pairs of boots have graciously been donated. The CCA is currently fitting junior cadets with the boots they will borrow for their senior year.

Attention Juniors!

The CCA would like to offer you the opportunity to borrow boots for your senior year. We have set up an appointment calendar for fittings. (If the schedule is full, please check back. We will be adding dates and times throughout the month.)
