Maureen Turk and Nancy Nielson were the first women to study nuclear engineering at A&M. When Nielson graduated in 1970, she was the first woman since the Hutson twins to complete a course of study in engineering and the first ever to receive a degree in the field. Turk graduated in 1972


In 1971, 1,767 women were enrolled. Four years later the number had climbed to 7,182 and by 1980 nearly doubled to 12,207.

Champion golfer Brenda Goldsmith signed with A&M in 1973 and was thus the first female athlete recruited by the school. There was not an official women’s golf team, however, because the Southwest Conference prohibited competition among women. Goldsmith instead “represented” A&M at tournaments and other competitions. Through the late ’60s and early ’70s women’s athletics were limited to “club sports” status and could not begin in earnest until the rules of the SWC were changed.


Roxie Pranglin, shown here leading W-1 in the 1977 Kansas march-in, was the first female cadet to lead a unit who had also served all four years in the Corps.


Coeducation also led to the end of some traditions. In 1970, A&M coeds were allowed to compete for the title of “Aggie Sweetheart” for the first time. Since 1938, when the tradition began, this honor had been reserved for a “Tessie,” the Aggie name for students at TWU. In 1971, Carolyn Haley was the first Aggie to compete for the title. In 1972, Becky Upham (pictured) became the first Aggie “Aggie Sweetheart.” She was also the last as the tradition was discontinued the next year.

My father in law (class of 66) was on that committee. (My wife is class of 94.) I asked him, "after four years of an all male college, you were AGAINST allowing women to come?" His response: "I'll admit now I was horribly misguided then, and A&M would not be what it is today if we had won."

This is more like the female engineering students I ran into when I was in school.

This is the one thing I have against female dance team or cheerleaders.......being embarrassed by all the numbskulls that would boo them (or hiss them). When we do finally do it, I think I'll skip inviting any non-Aggies to games until the boos get shaken out.



When (not if) this happens, I'll bet you a nickel the cheers drown out the boos.




But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

I love when others claim things as traditions that really are not traditions (i.e. not booing, drummer boy entrance).

So.....letting women attend A&M is the same thing as asking them to dance around on the sidelines so a bunch of old men can have something to stare at? Duly noted

I am class of 66 and have to agree that I was very mistaken about this issue. My daugher is class of 94. Just goes to show that young folks aren't always as forward looking as they should be.

Okay, so how did the sweetheart thing get killed? I see this as the future Miss America pageant! A legitimate reason for all the hotties to get in bikinis and show off on stage!
