Thanks to the DC Ags that came out to the Texas State Society’s Annual Picnic at Fort Hunt this past weekend! The DC Ags softball team played two hard-fought games, and plenty of barbecue, beverages, music, and games were enjoyed by all! #DCaggies

Maroon & White Watch Party

We’re kicking off our Spring/Summer 2019 calendar with this year’s edition of Texas A&M Football’s Maroon & White Game, is set for a 2 p.m. ET kickoff on Saturday, April 13 at Kyle Field. The annual game will be televised nationally on the SEC Network.

Shiner will be flowing, with drink specials and snacks aplenty. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for sunshine on my face and energy in my veins that only Aggie Football can sustain.

There will also be a silent auction and raffle for concert tickets to shows like Thomas Rhett, and Shakey Graves, and a Shiner grill.

This isn’t just for football! It’ll also be a great time to meet new Ags to the area, and reconnect with those people you haven’t seen since you started your winter hibernation. Much like winter’s snow, your heart can thaw out and get ready for a GREAT next 6 months.

Corps Values: Aggie Spotlight with Will McCauley ’06

Picture it: Aggieland, 2006. Jersey Shore is all the rage on MTV, Facebook poke wars are a thing, Drake just dropped “Thank Me Later”, ‘Party in the USA’ and ‘Single Ladies’ were your fave songs, you watched YouTube videos like ‘Old Gregg’ and ‘David after Dentist’ more times than you can count on your fingers and toes, and pictures were taken on new ‘digital’ handheld cameras.

Insert Will McCauley, President of DC Aggies (NCTAMC), vet for exotic animals, owner of a pet pig, and all-around hometown hero. Will was a member of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets (and will give an intimate account of his experiences of being a CT, or ‘Corps Turd’), an Animal Science Major (remember THAT building??), knows what it takes to date the powerful women of DC, and a lover of a good time with good people. He’s given the most in-depth interview to date, and I promise it’s worth EVERY moment of the 10 minutes it’ll take to read.

Aggie Spotlight: Lauren & Collin Mulcahy

Welcome to the second spotlight y’all! Today we’re meeting Lauren and Collin Mulcahy, who both serve as physicians in DC. Talk about power couples. They live in Dupont, enjoy hosting friends on their rooftop, and refer to their home as the ‘Texas Embassy’.

This Dallas girl and Houston boy have different versions of how they met, but started dating in Med School at UT Health Science Center at Houston. Lauren is a Pediatrician at Children’s National, and Collin is an ENT (ear/nose/throat) specialist at GW. But we appreciate them for more than their professions–even if that’s saving lives.

Meet the Mulcahys!

Aggie Spotlight: Justin & Katelyn Cruce

Here in the DMV, I’ve come across some of the most intelligent, kind and hard-working people through my time in the public, private and non-profit sectors. Residents of this area live a lifestyle that is fiercely-driven by their ambitions, personal morals and worrisome amounts of caffeine.

Stepping into the role of VP Comms for NCTAMC ( or just DC Ags) I wanted a provide chance to get to share the intimate details of those amazing people I am constantly blessed to meet on a day-to-day basis. So I tried to think of the best way to tap into such a rich resource. I thought about some of my favorite platforms and methods I’ve seen before.

I settled on the example of Vogue, who conducts authentic video interviews through a series of questions that are similar to the ice-breakers we’re all forced to do at work retreats and team-building exercises. While those exercises make me want to curl into a ball and die rather than share a ‘fun fact’ about myself–telling personal stories based on the shared love of our university seemed way more approachable.

So! without further ado, here’s our first interview with Justin Cruce ’13 and his wife Katelyn, who married into the Aggie family.
