Hooray Thursday is an informal event that occurs on the last Thursday of every month at a local business. This program will promote no-agenda networking and camaraderie in a social environment. The Hooray Thursday location will alternate between a local restaurant/bar/establishment and an Investor’s place of business (or location of choice).

The Social Events program will provide YP’s the ability to connect with other young professionals in a fun and unique environment. We will host a variety of events throughout the year. These events may include but are not limited to Aggieville Olympics, YP Trivia, Holiday Gatherings, Tailgating/Watch Parties, Game Nights, Etc.

This program provides an opportunity for YPs with families to connect and participate in family-friendly activities as a group. There are up to three family-friendly socials per year, and events may include but are not limited to Family BBQ, Fall Fest, Day at the Zoo, Etc.
