Have you gone to the Texas School Forum ?
You can check into your class and see who all is in there with ya!
ALSO...you may already have a message from your instructor telling you what they would like you to bring in order to be better prepared for Texas School!

Here is the general Texas School Forum:

AND here is the Student/Instructor's ONLY forum:
This is where you should find your classmates and instructor messages ;0)

Val - I'm registered on the forums, but it's pretty quiet in there. Maybe it will pick up as the time gets closer. Looking forward to it!

Sure thing Lori :0)

David, Yip...as you can imagine...there are only prep detail to pick up online, instructor messages, and introductory conversations right now...some folks are getting to know each other BEFORE Texas School...how fun is it to get there and meet in person the classmates with whom you have been chatting online through http://www.texasschoolforum.org/
..too cool !

Of course AFTER Texas School....close friends will have been made....and MANY MANY photos will be uploaded and traded from the AWESOME week of events, classes, and fun from Texas School at Texas A&M....

I can remember in years past, wondering where my classmates had gone, what they were up to...'cause we had lost touch. I had wondered what they did with all of the awesome instruction we all learned at Texas School. NOW we have the tool to help us better achieve all of this.

It's totally gonna rock...and this is the first year for http://www.texasschoolforum.org integration...it has really TAKEN off...WOW...You wouldn't BELIEVE how many we have had sign up....how many awesome emails we've gotten stating approval.

In this way, we are furthering the comradery, preparation, excitement and "keeping touch" after Texas School !!! Neat-o :0)
