Texas A&M University-Kingsville, or "TAMUK," is the oldest university in South Texas. The school was chartered as the South Texas Normal School in 1917. The university became a member of the Texas A&M University System in 1989. In 2016, we partnered with Ampersand Agency to create this student recruiting video. Along with their letters of acceptance, prospective students received an e-mail inviting them to place a headshot of their photo and live the Javelina Nation lifestyle.
