Despite the sub-par food, limited tutoring avalibility, and lack of sports to participate in, TAMUG is a genuinely good school. The classes are small enough for you and your professor to gain a relationship to work toward your success, the professors are passionate, and everybody knows everybody. Whether you're staying here to transfer to main campus, or if you're staying here for all four, you'll definitely feel at home.
Texas A & M University - Galveston is a small campus, which is nice if you are not into the big campus life. Some of the classes have an upwards of 80+ students, meanwhile, some classes will barely contain 10 students. The Marine Biology and Engineering programs are notoriously tough and for a good reason, so if your heart is not into either of those subjects then I would not recommend majoring in these fields of studies. The staff and faculty on campus are also very helpful and supportive of their students like they really make you feel like you are part of the Aggie family and it is one of the many things I love about this campus. So, if you are looking for a school that has fields of studies involving the ocean then TAMUG is definitely the place to go. I would gladly recommend it to anyone looking to make a living out on the seas.
The campus is in a favorable location with great weather and amenities. The food could be improved with a greater variety. Facilities are enjoyable for student activities and comfort. Professors are usually personable and knowledgeable and available to students.
Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) is a tremendous establishment that offers the best of many worlds. First of all it is 100% associated with Texas A&M University College Station (TAMU) where students receive the same education, Aggie ring, diploma, and much more. Every year I purchased student football tickets and every home game I drove to College Station so I could cheer on the "Fightin Texas Aggies." This was great as I still got to participate in all the traditions that make up at Texas A&M University. Not going to lie, the tickets set aside for TAMUG are probably better than most of those offered to TAMU students. Again, you have same traditions and family as those located at Galveston as you do at College Station.
The one thing that sets TAMUG apart is its location in Galveston which caters to those who love the ocean and all it has to offer. A day could consist of a morning in class learning about beach nourishment followed by studying on a beach under the Texas sun by noon! I strictly attended TAMUG as it offered a degree in Maritime Systems Engineering (now known as Ocean Engineering) which provided me with an amazing education and set me up for a career that I love working as a marine engineering in the offshore oil & gas industry.
Another advantage of the school is you still obtain the same level of education, but at a fraction of the cost from main campus which for me was a factor as upon graduation I didn't want to be loaded down by massive student loans. Luckily I was able to pay off my student loans in just 4 years which amounted to just shy of $30K
Overall a great university that offers so much to a diversified world of potential students.

There are a few things I did right and wrong for college. First off, do not be afraid to take a lot of your personal belongings from home. Your dorm room is not a box! You will have plenty of room for your belongings, and you will probably end up bringing them later. Plus, having your personal belongings sure makes being away from home in a dorm a lot more comfortable.
Second, go crazy making friends. Making friends makes the change from home to college a lot easier. You will need people to talk to who feel the same. There is a 99% chance the people you see are new to the school. Saying hi just may make a new and helpful friend. Do not look down at the sidewalk just because you walk past someone new.
Finally, go to school for what you want and love. Do not be talked out of persuing the degree of your dreams just because it does not have the same income as another. Do consider future finances but do not let them make the decision. If you do not love your degree what makes you thing you will love your future job? Exactlly!
The Aggie Network basically assurres you a job after graduation.
its very hard to get into town if you do not own a car because there is no public transportation.
I wish I knew how to study. I did not know what to look for when I studied. I either wrote down too many notes or not enough, and this messed up how I studied. My previous school only cared about the standardized testing. If I knew how to study I could have done much better on my tests.
Academically centered seasoned in traditions.
The classmates in which I attend class with are all extremly outgoing and nice. Texas A&M is known for its friendly people, and that tradition is true in Galveston. Although Galveston, like any other school, is very diverse in its students, the students themselves are all very united. On game days, the air is filled with excitment, no matter you preference to football, everyone is gathered, watching the game and cheering.
Texas A&M is known for their reputation as a great school. By this I mean the knowledge one will gain while attending is excellent because the professors are experts in their profession. You will also be able to take that knowledge and go into the career field of your choice feeling prepared to apply that gained knowledge.
Our school spirit is amazing. We are more like a family than a group of students and faculty.
someone who is interested in anything that has to do with the water. marine engeniering, marine biology, marine transportation, etc.
Any kind of person is welcome with open arms at Texas A&M Galveston, but since this school is very friendly, people who are not nessecarily friendly will probably not fit in as well as someone who welcomes a journey with a smile.
For those that do not live on-campus, you have to cross a bridge, be delayed by the inevitable train and then cross another bridge; the last bridge being a drawbridge which would occasionally get stuck! Travel time from 25 miles away ranges from 20 minutes to an hour. That doesn't include heavy traffic, just obstacles likes bridges and trains!
My school solely focuses on the maritime industry, that's what makes it so unique from other schools I considered. Evey degree available is to prepare you for the different maritime fields. From maritime administration to marine biology to marine engineering and plenty others, it all has to do with the water and the nautical involvements. Another thing that makes my school very unique from the other schools is that it's very small. There are only about 2,100 students and I love how everytime you turn a corner, you see someone you know.
