Texas A&M Pre-Medical Society 

Volunteering is a crucial part to ensuring your matriculation into medical school. The Pre-Med Society offers many volunteering outlets that are both long and short-term to help boost your application! This past semester we volunteered at Twin City Missions, St. Joseph Manor, and MHMR. We also had several one-day volunteering opportunities throughout the semester such as the Walk to End Alzheimer's, participating in BUILD, and the Big Event.

The following is our volunteering schedule this semester:

Other Volunteering Opportunities


  • Habitat for Humanity
    • Aggie Habitat focuses on building homes, fundraising to sponsor a family's home, advocating for affordable housing, and educating the Texas A&M campus and community Habitat for Humanity's mission. We work to offer families who live in substandard housing the opportunity to own a home. After a family is selected, they must complete at least 500 hours of 'sweat-equity' by volunteering through Habitat for Humanity. Then, they are sold a simple, affordable home with a 30-year no-interest loan for essentially the cost of the materials. This model allows us to give these families a hand up rather than a hand out.  The homes are built using volunteer labor (that means you, yes you!) 
    • Look out for an email regarding more information! ​
  • The Big Event
    • Since its introduction in 1982, The Big Event has become the largest, one-day, student-run service project in the nation. Each spring, tens of thousands of Texas A&M students come together to say "Thank You" to the residents of Bryan and College Station. For the past 33 years, Aggie students have participated in this annual event to show their appreciation to the surrounding community, completing service projects such as yard work, window washing, and painting for residents of the community. Although The Big Event has become the largest one-day, student-run service project in the nation, our message and our mission remains the same – to simply say “Thank You.​"
