What is YAF?
YAF stands for Young Americans for Freedom. Universities across the United States have chapters on their campuses that exist to promote principles of moral liberty, personal responsibility, and economic self-determination. A national group by the name of Young Americas Foundation is the parent organization for these chapters and provide us with resources and fantastic speakers including Vice President Mike Pence, Ben Shapiro and other commentators from the Daily Wire, and many other prominent conservatives. Learn more about YAF at www.yaf.org.
While this is a group for conservative students, our members do have a wide variety of views on different issues and we welcome respectful discussion.
Why should I join?
Make lifelong conservative friends
Hear from & meet really cool speakers!
Be part of one of the most redass orgs on campus (if we do say so ourselves)
Discussions with like-minded students about a variety of topics
Service & social opportunities
Attend summer and winter conferences
The Meme Chat
& so much more!
Do I have to be a member to participate?
Yes & no. Any student is welcome to attend our bi-weekly meetings & speaker events are open to the public. Only members are able to meet the speakers, attend socials and trips, volunteer, and be added to the Discord.
How do I join? How much does it cost?
Students can join by attending one of our regular meetings. Talk to our treasurer, Preston, or another officer to pay your dues. Dues are $25 cash for the whole year and include a t-shirt!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to join but can't make the meetings.
When are your meetings?
We meet biweekly on Thursdays at 5:30pm in Rudder Tower. Feel free to join us any point in the semester- we do not have a strict "recruiting season." Check back after school stars for the room number, or email email@example.com.
I'm in the Corps of Cadets - do I have to wear my uniform?
Yes, even though this is a "political organization," you will have to wear your uniform to our biweekly member meetings in Rudder Tower. For our larger speaker events, it depends on the event.
How can I be more involved?
Preston: Come to the socials, debate, and talk with us. We don’t bite.
Reagan: Start table-ing! It might be intimidating at first, but it gets easier. It’s a great way to understand the campus dynamic and to help out at events.
Ryan: Never be afraid to voice your opinion.
Caroline: Sign up for the email! And don't be afraid to show up to socials even when you don't know anyone. It's one of the best ways to meet other YAFers.
When are the socials?
Details about socials, volunteering, and other events will be posted on our social media and sent in the weekly email and on Discord.
Our past socials have included movie nights, dancing at Harry's, Aggie sporting events, tailgating, holiday and pool parties, guys & girls nights, and much more.
I have more questions. Who do I contact?
