College Station: Sam Houston Sanders' Corps of Cadets Center

For generations, the uniformed and leather-booted cadets have been an icon of Texas A&M. Photographs and memorabilia on display at the Sam Houston Sanders' Corps of Cadets Center offer a sometimes moving, sometimes humorous look at the rituals of cadet life. Culture shock is visible on the faces of the fish (freshmen) as they are taught to leave self-interest behind — along with such luxuries as telephone and TV privileges — to embrace the new values of self-discipline and unity. The museum also features a vast antique firearms collection that includes 19th-century Colt pistols and early flintlock revolvers.
