DEFINITIONS

of an

AGGIE

At Utah State, you’ll be pushed to be better, to go further. You’ll be asked to participate and challenged to lead. Of the many Aggie definitions, they’re all made of experiences: late nights studying, early mornings walking across the Quad, and even riding down Old Main Hill.
