Have a look around with Lucky as your guide

Hey, there! I’m Lucky.

Welcome to my view of the Lion Life! As the symbol of spirit here at A&M-Commerce, I love to get out and about, immersing myself in the campus culture.

As you make your way to class, work, events, lunch or back to your room for a cat nap, you’re likely to pass me on the sidewalk. Don’t be shy; I’m always up for a high five! I’m excited to take you on this tour myself because I am proud of how great my home at A&M-Commerce truly is. As I walk you through my favorite spots, I hope the images become less like photos and more like reality. After all, this just might become your home, too! There’s only one thing…I just can’t seem to sit still long enough to pose for a picture. You know lions, always on the prowl! Let’s see if you can spot me on campus.
