This touching tribute is a memorial for the 12 Aggies that were killed at the construction of the Aggie Bonfire in 1999 – a longstanding tradition before the team played their biggest rival. In place of where the bonfire used to be held, there stands 12 beautiful stones, one for each lost Aggie, telling their story, capturing the personality and essence of the students. As a special place to all Aggies, it is definitely worth your time to learn about the amazing students who lost their lives in the tragic accident.
