the grammar is awful. it's being fixed this week. the "welcome to" piece will be removed, thankfully.

It's still one of the dumbest things we've done.

Unfortunately, I was not able to see either image that you posted. What did the sign say?

the sign said "aggieville" and underneath it "welcome to." it was horrible grammar. they got rid of the "welcome to" leaving "aggieville." this link might work better for you.

If we want to stop being perceived as hicks then a good first step would be to stop doing things like this.

sorry you feel that way but by default an aggie is synonymous to hick

It's not that bad, but it's not that good either. 😋
