    Texas A&M University is facing criticism for being too lenient in its handling of sexual assault allegations. A female student last week accused the school via Twitter of not doing enough to punish her alleged attacker. He was found responsible for misconduct in a Title IX ruling and suspended for one semester. The victim says that man has since rejoined the university's swim team, Thursday, June 14, 2018.

    A service has been scheduled Aug. 30 at Kyle Field to remember late Texas A&M collie mascot Reveille VIII.

    Organizers say Reveille VIII will be laid to rest 10 years to the day from her debut as mascot. The revered 12-year-old dog had been ill and died June 25.

    Reveille VIII drew avoidance attention on Sept. 20, 2014, as then-A&M cadet handler Ryan Kreider (KRY'-der) deflected SMU receiver Der'rikk Thompson away from the dog. Kreider gained fame for throwing himself in front of the out-of-bounds player. A&M went on to win 58-6.

    Kreider has been invited to attend the service this month outside the north end of Kyle Field. The Aggies that Saturday night will host Northwestern State.
