    At Texas A&M the Corps has, in addition to the Fighting Texas Aggie Band the following:
    Parsons Mounted Cavalry
    Parsons Mounted Cavalry, formed in 1973, is the successor to the mounted cavalry units that play a central role in A&M traditions. This is a ‘parade and show’ unit composed of sophomore, junior and senior cadets who represent the University at events across Texas.
    Ross Volunteer Company
    The Ross Volunteer Company is the oldest student organization in the state of Texas composed of junior and senior cadets. The unit is the official honor guard for the Governor of Texas.
    Fish Drill Team
    Fish Drill Team is a special unit composed entirely of freshman cadets. They compete in precision drill competitions around the country and have gone on to win the national championship almost every year since they were created in 1947.
    Corps Center Guard
    The Corps Center Guard is composed of four platoons of cadets-each assigned to a specialty: guns, A&R (accession and research), photography and tours-who dedicate themselves to learning and presenting the heritage of the Corps at the Sanders Corps of Cadets Center.
    General O.R. Simpson Corps Honor Society
    The General O.R. Simpson Corps Honor Society recognizes and rewards cadets with a cumulative GPR of at least 3.4 who foster new ideas of academic achievement, leadership and character in the Corps of Cadets and promote scholastic excellence through academic related projects including tutor assistance and operation of a study lounge for all cadets.

    Rudder’s Rangers (Army ROTC)
    Rudder’s Rangers, named in honor of Major General James Earl Rudder, is the Army ROTC’s elite training unit for cadets of any branch who want to become proficient in small unit light infantry tactics. Rudder’s Rangers participate in two major events each year, the Winter Field Training Exercise held at Ft. Hood and the Best Ranger Competition.

The platoon participates in pistol qualifying, SCUBA trips, rappelling and land/water navigation exercises, as well as hosts and attends major competitions around the nation.
    Recon Platoon (Navy/Marine ROTC)
    Recon Platoon prepares highly motivated students for the rigors of the Basic Reconnaissance Course, as well as Officer Candidate School and The Basic School. In addition to daily physical training, members receive training in water survival skills, land navigation, SCUBA, marksmanship, rappelling and small fire team tactics.
    Darling Recruiting Company
    The Maj. Gen. T. G. Darling Recruiting Company provides the means for highly motivated cadets to conduct planning, provide support, and to represent Texas A&M University and the Corps of Cadets at University and Corps recruiting events.

    Additionally, there are close to 800 clubs, groups, and related organizations that are recognized at A&M and the members of the Corps are eligible to join them, time committments permitting.

    I am at the citadel now, clubs are a great way to get involved but there are very few (compared to other SMC's) for military. Obviously if variety is what you are looking for, go to a school that also has a civilian side
