Recent graduate, Brianna Bonilla ’17, conceptualized and produced a series of commercials as part of a TAMU / Univision outreach effort to attract young recruits from Hispanic communities across the country.

The earliest known Hispanic graduate of Texas A&M was José Angel Ortís, Class of 1891. He graduated with a degree in civil engineering. He entered Texas A&M in 1887, taking courses in mechanical engineering through his junior year. It appears that he did not attend school during the 1890–91 school year but returned in the fall of 1891 to complete his degree.
