What is the AEC?

The Athletic Engagement Committee (AEC) consists primarily of students with the goal of fostering student attendance and engagement at McNeese sporting events.  This includes but is not limited to food, T-shirts, give-a-ways, and other promotional items.  This committee also helps fund events such as the student tailgates for football games, concerts, and other related activities that promote McNeese student pride and spirit.  This committee's work is funded through the student self-assessed athletic fee in the amount of no less than $30,000 annually. 
The committee is comprised of nine members and its composition is currently as follows:
