New Mexico State University Alamogordo celebrated its 8th annual “Crimson Day” Thursday, October 24, on the campus front lawn with free food, beverages, music, games, and prize drawings every 10 minutes for students, faculty, and staff (over 30 prizes were won!). The campus turned crimson and black all week as people wore Aggie gear and colors every day, but particularly that Thursday!
Special guests, Pistol Pete and several NMSU cheerleaders, stayed busy posing for photos with just about everyone! Campus student organizations provided a variety of games and activities, including hair painting, bowling, football toss, and limbo, while 94KYEE provided music for all to enjoy. One of the big attractions was free pizza for everyone that was provided by the NMSU-A Student Government.
The highlight of the Aggie spirit ‘blow out’ was the traditional “toast to the Aggies” to wish NMSU the best for their Homecoming gridiron match against the Abilene Christian Wildcats. The Aggies won 34 to 29.
A special thanks to President Jimeno for your gracious welcome (you look great with your hair sprayed red!), Dr. Hill for leading the “toast” again this year (you always know the right words!), the Crimson Day task force, student organizations and their advisors, Facilities personnel, and all who pulled together to make this celebration a success. (The weather was perfect, too!)

Since 2005 New Mexico State University at Alamogordo has celebrated “Crimson Day” preceding NMSU’s Homecoming football game. This year Crimson “Day” will be on Thursday, October 24, on the campus front lawn with free food, beverages, music, games, and prize drawings every 10 minutes for our students, faculty and staff. Let’s make the whole week “Crimson” by wearing Aggie gear and colors every day, but particularly that Thursday! A special prize will go to the person with the most original/creative “Aggie Spirit” appearance!
One of the highlights of our Aggie spirit ‘blow out’ will be the traditional “toast to the Aggies” as we wish our team the best for their gridiron match that Saturday against the Abilene Christian Wildcats. Remember, even though we are in Alamogordo, we are Aggies, and we’ll be cheering our team on to victory to “Skin the Wildcats!”

Monday, October 14th through Thursday, October 17th is “Pink Week” at New Mexico State University at Alamogordo. During “Pink Week” we celebrate those who have survived breast cancer, support those who are currently fighting the disease, and remember those who have lost the battle. Our campus joins the “Pink Week” campaign because we believe that education is imperative for prevention and early diagnosis of breast cancer.
During “Pink Week” all NMSU-Alamogordo students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear pink every day to show their support. To highlight the week, there will be “Pink on the Patio” (A PINK PARTY!) Thursday, October 17th, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. There will be music, free popcorn, soft drinks, & giveaways. So be “Pink Proud” (this includes men because breast cancer has no gender preference.)
NMSU-Alamogordo challenges the campus and the community to support this important cause and recognize those who have been touched by this disease. The goal of “Pink Week” is to pay tribute to this important cause.
