Howdy!...and welcome to The Rudder Association, dedicated to preserving, defending and perpetuating the Texas Aggie Core Values and Culture for all Former Students, as well as Current and Future Students. In other words, putting the "Aggie” back in Aggieland!
“It is my firm belief that my dad, James Earl Rudder ’32, would heartily endorse The Rudder Association’s mission. It is critically important that we are aware of threats at our door. Should we fail to be active warriors in protecting our valued traditions, we will lose them.”
Bud Rudder ‘62
The Rudder Association Honors the Life and Mourns the Loss of a true Leader, Mentor, Colleague, Friend and Aggie...

Members of The Rudder Association,
We believe that public institutions belong to the public and Texas A&M in particular belongs to all Aggies. We are willing to fight for that belief because Texas A&M and its core values and traditions are worth the fight and we are Aggies to the Core. Below is the press release we will be sharing widely.
