How FLARE Works:

FLARE aims to provide freshmen liberal arts majors the opportunity to develop both academically and socially within Texas A&M and the College of Liberal Arts. FLARE offers freshmen the necessary tools and resources to become improved leaders.

About FLARE 

FLARE is composed of 3 junior directors, 11-15 sophomore counselors, and 50-60 freshmen members. All staff members have been a part of FLARE previously. Our size enables us to create a dynamic environment for freshmen to make a big impact within the Texas A&M community and foster strong friendships within the organization. 

General meetings are held at 7:00 pm every Tuesday night. During this time FLARE comes together to develop as a group. This is usually accomplished by inviting guest speakers who have valuable lessons to offer. Past speakers have included the Dean of Liberal Arts, James Olson from the Bush School, and many professors from the College of Liberal Arts. We also use this time to allow committees to update the organization on their projects and to keep FLARE connected as a whole.

Committees:

Public Relations (PR) deals with maintaining FLARE’s image on various social media platforms, designing, ordering, collecting funds, and maintaining communication with manufacturers of FLARE apparel. PR is also responsible for planning and organizing the Spring Semester all-FLO event.

Cultural Inclusion and Academics (CIA) is in charge of providing academic support and cultural exploration for liberal arts students within FLARE. We help students excel by bringing faculty, organizations, and other inspirational speakers to discuss opportunities a Liberal Arts degree has. Along with hosting study hours throughout the week, we plan day and weekend trips to Austin, Houston, RenFest, campsites, etc.


Internal Relations (IR) works to keep all FLARE members connected by planning and putting on our socials. We also work to build and strengthen friendships between freshmen (families).

 

Programs and Special Activities (PSA) deals with planning and overseeing important events for FLARE, including Parents Night, the Winter Formal, The Fall and Spring Retreats, Mixers, and Aggie Sports Watch Parties.

 

Finance (FINE) handles all matters involving raising money for the FLO throughout the year by various means, including organizing profit shares with local restaurants and hosting bake sales. 


Community Outreach (COMMOUT)​ is in charge of service. We coordinate volunteering opportunities for our FLARE members and help our organization improve the university and Bryan/College Station area. Internally we help FLARE members make new connections within FLARE as well as the university as a whole.
