Aggie Remembrance Day


We remember them today,
We remember them tomorrow 
They are forever a part of our Aggie family. 

On Saturday, May 1, we will launch a new tradition: New Mexico State University’s Aggie Remembrance Day. This date will forever be recognized as a dedicated time to celebrate the lives and memories of our fellow Aggies who have passed away during that year.

Since 2013, a simple memorial ceremony was held on campus to recognize current students, faculty, staff and alumni who had passed away during that academic school year. However, due to the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, we have been unable to gather together and this tradition was put on pause.

The past year has been unlike any other, but the spirit of being a part of the Aggie Nation is strong. It is now time to recognize those in our Aggie family who have passed away by sharing their names and celebrating their lives virtually.

We invite you to participate in Aggie Remembrance Day through your social media venue of choice – (Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter) on Saturday, May 1. You may use the official Aggie Memorial Coin image as a profile picture and share a reflective thought or special memory of your Aggie experience.

This website features the names of currently enrolled students who passed away between April 30, 2019 and April 29, 2021. 

If you have lost a beloved Aggie this past year, please use this link to provide us with their information so that we can include them in future Remembrance Day activities.


* Plans are being made to update this website to honor not only current students but also our loyal alumni, faculty and staff.
