A Tradition since 1907

Cut Class

Your introduction to Bonfire

Every participant must attend Cut Class.  There are three Cut Classes before First Cut.  There will also be a Cut Class before every Bonfire activity.

If you missed the preseason Cut Class, it’s not too late.  Come to Cut prepared to complete your paperwork and attend Cut Class.  You will be able to participate immediately following Cut Class.

Here’s what you’ll need to get squared away for Cut Class on-site.


Cut Card

This is your identification at all Bonfire activities. You will complete your Cut Card at your first check-in. Greenpots will return your laminated Cut Card at your next check-in.

There is a $5 “Cut Card” registration fee.

Membership Forms

Forms include important medical and contact information. Forms are available from Greenpots at Cut Class and at check-in for all Bonfire activities.


A Pot

This is the helmet everyone wears. Pots can be bought at Sarge’s on Northgate, Holick’s, and most Military Depots. Pots MUST have liners. You will not be allowed in the Woods or at Stack Site without a Pot. A Pot is not required for Burn Night.

A limited number of extra Pots will be available for visitors.


Steel toe boots are required.


These are your Bonfire clothes. You’ll want to wear clothes that you don’t plan on using again outside of Bonfire. Pants must be a heavy material such as denim and cover the full length of the leg, such as overalls and jeans. Pants should have no holes larger than a quarter.

Bonfire is the undying flame of love that every loyal Aggie carries in their heart for the school.
