Four months ago, Grad School Sports was created with a single goal in mind: to provide an online platform for fans to debate and discuss their favorite sports. On Monday April 27, 2020, we are excited to release the first edition of Grad School Syllabus, a weekly sports newsletter delivered directly to your inbox. The Syllabus will include analysis and commentary on the latest sports news, as well as a collection of fun facts, satire, and viral videos that will ease the boredom of social isolation.
While the Syllabus content will surely brighten your day, please also consider the additional philanthropic benefits of subscribing. As Texas A&M University Alumni ‘19, we firmly believe in the school’s core values, particularly that of Selfless Service. One Aggie organization that admirably advances this cause is the 12th Can, a student-run food pantry.
The 12th Can strives to eliminate hunger in the Texas A&M community, raise awareness about food insecurity across college campuses, and exemplify the strength of the Aggie spirit. With campus shut down due to COVID-19 concerns, there are countless students, faculty, and staff uncertain where they will find their next meal. Thus, the 12th Can has sponsored a food drive through April 30, encouraging members of the local community to donate various food items.
While the timeless traditions and legendary school spirit underscore Texas A&M’s unique aura, it is the people – the students, faculty, and staff – that really transform College Station into a home away from home. By harnessing the power and resourcefulness of the Aggie Network, we can ensure that no Aggie gets left behind.
Aggies everywhere – our beloved university has blessed us with priceless memories and lifelong friends. What better way to give back than to help a fellow Aggie struggling to make ends meet during these stressful times? Students and alumni of other institutions – we hope that you might subscribe as well, and potentially even donate to your local food bank.
Please consider sharing this with your family, friends, and coworkers. We welcome all to the Grad School Sports community, and remind you that any donation to the 12th Can – no matter how small – can truly change a person’s life for the better.
