Founders Day is a time to commemorate the founding of our institution and celebrate the things that make NMSU special and unique. This year, we will add a bit of vibrato to the day by honoring our musical traditions, including the PRIDE of New Mexico Marching Band and the Aggie Fight song. We also will have a showcase of band uniforms through the years.
