TOUR Military Walk
Back to Campus Landmark BuildingsPhotos Videos
Military Walk, which is approximately 1,500 feet long, links the Sbisa Dining Hall area to the Rudder/Memorial Student Center complex in the heart of campus. It passes between several campus landmarks, including the Academic Building and the YMCA Building.
The tradition-laden walkway evolved from a dirt road in the early 1880s, to a narrow paved street in the early 1900s, to a series of sidewalks laid in the 1970s. For decades, it was where thousands of Aggies assembled daily when Texas A&M was small and almost all students were men and required to be members of the Corps of Cadets.
In 2010, Military Walk underwent a renovation and now features a combination of bricks and limestone pavers with historic markers and landscaping enhancements along the way.
