Becomming A "True Aggie"

Nothing better than getting kissed on the "A"

Homecoming at Utah State There is an old tradition at Logan, Utah's Utah State University -- nobody knows just when it started -- about how a USU student can become a "True Aggie." A pedastal held up by four block "A's" sits in the oldest part of campus, between Old Main and the old President's Mansion. The story goes that you can only become a "True Aggie" if, at midnight on homecoming, you get kissed while standing on this pedestal by someone who has peviously been initiated. Even Utah's governor, whose wife graduated from Utah State, has been made a "True Aggie." Whence cometh the old saying: "You're not a True Aggie 'til you've been kissed on the 'A'."
