This is the official website for the Aggie Grotto! Our mission is to promote interest in and to advance in any and all ways the study and science of speleology, and to promote fellowship among those interested therein.
If you’re interested in crawling around in caves and camping out with us, check out our affiliate – the Aggie Speleological Society! Their meetings are every Thursday night at 8:00 PM in HEB 203; they will discuss cave-related topics and direct you to our trips!
We accept TAMU and Blinn students of all majors, activity levels, and experience levels! Even community members are welcome. Absolutely NO EXPERIENCE is required! Many members have no experience with caving before joining the Grotto. We will provide nearly everything you need to get started.
Who are we?
The Aggie Grotto is an affiliate of the Aggie Speleological Society. They are a student-run organization dedicated to educating students and members of our community about cave ecosystems and exploration. The Aggie Grotto goes out around the great state of Texas to explore the vast karst systems and meet with fellow cavers. We accept all majors, undergrad and grad students, and non-students at ANY time during the school year. No experience is necessary, and the club provides nearly everything you will need.
Where are we?
Every Thursday at 8:00 PM in HEB 203 (Haynes Engineering Building). If you have a pass you can park in Lot 50. Several members like to get together afterwards to hang out, so stick around after the meeting!
What’s the cost?
Dues are $20 for the semester, $35 for the year. This allows you access to our Grotto’s equipment when we go spelunking.
