The Spiritual Center is located on NMSU’s International Mall, west of the Educational Services Building and the Pan American Center, near the university’s duck pond. Public parking is available in Lot 27, which is north of the Educational Services Building.

“The memorial plays an important part for our community. It is a time to reflect on those we have lost in the past year and to remember the times we shared,” said Michael Jasek, NMSU dean of students.

In addition to honoring students, employees and alumni, Greg Fant, NMSU’s associate vice president and deputy provost, will speak. The Aggie Memorial is now in its sixth year.

The Dean of Students office leads the coordination of the ceremony, and departments from across campus assist with the event. For more information, contact the Dean of Students office at 575-646-1722.
