You need to find the right collage for you. Don't go to a school were all of your friends go, chances are in a year you will not talk to them.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

first i would ask if the student knew what they wanted to study, major in. if the student did not, i would tell them to start off taking the basic classes at a community college. it will save them time and money, and it will give them a small idea of what college life is like. if the student did know what they want to major in, i would advise them to look at many colleges, then pick the ones that they think would feel like home and has opportunities in the city for internships. if a student wanted to become a nurse, i would tell them to pick a college in a town that has hospitals close by. as for making the most of the college experience, the best thing to do is find friends that encourage you to go to class and work hard because those are the friends that will not fail you later in life. they will always be ther for you and will look out for you. friends for life. with those friends, college will be a blast!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

the worst thing about my school would have to be the amount of mosquitoes and the smell of sulfur from the plant across the bay. when it warms up in the srping and summer, the mosquitoes are numerous and annoying. bug spray does not work on them at all, but once off campus, they aren't an issue. the sulfur is only smeeled once in awhile, but when driving on campus, and after the sulfur has been burned, it is smelled for the entire day. after awhile, most people become used to the smell.

What kind of person should attend this school?

the best kind of person for this school would be someone who is willing to work hard for their grades. nothing is just given to the students here. no slacking off of work or skipping class. but even though it can be tough, the surrounding scenery is amazing. if you love the beach, sand and sun, this is the place for you! even while on campus, it feels like a retreat from the every day stresses of life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I advise that parents take an interest in what college their children are considering, however I think parents should let their children have the ultimnate choice and not push them too far. It's the student's decision overall. I advise the students to take heed to their parents advise as well, but make sure to pick a school that is right for them. The student needs to choose a school that focuses on the success and safety of the student. I suggest that students go take a look at local colleges first as well as looking even beyond their state of residence. There is never too much research when choosing a school. I suggest that students look early and never give up when things look bleak. If a school doesn't accept the student I advise the student to just keep trying.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend Texas A&M at Galveston is someone who really wants to get a selective degree and one who likes middle sized schools. The person who attends this school would be someone who wants to be around diverse and succesful people who focus on research. The person who wants to speak their minds would come to this school. The person who wants to stay away from drugs and be safe would come here. Also, the person who wants a career would defintitely attend this school, because this school really helps students be succesful.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag about a close knit community when talking about my school. I telll my friends that people really care about each other here and that I haven't met anyone who would ignore the cries of another when help is needed. I let my friends know that teachers are there for the students and that students do actually have an interest for each other here at this school. I brag that because of all of this my school has overcome even a natural disaster. We really stick to each other here in Texas A&M at Galveston.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Choose the right campus for the desired major. Do not choose a campus just because it's pretty. Do the research on the faculty in the desired department. Look into grants, because loans are ridiculously expensive in the long run. Also apply early.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is politically conservative, a person who is not interested in a marine related field. Also, someone who parties heavily or who many consider "high maintenance." We are a low maintenance campus, where people wear pajamas to class, and teachers show up in hawaiian shirts and flip flops. Additionally, someone who prefers mountains over the beach.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

We're a simple campus. We pride ourselves on our incredible academic background. Our professors are the top of their field. They are well respected, and we get the best education money can buy for our chosen fields. For marine biology majors, it is the perfect atmosphere. You are surrounded by every imaginable marine environment, giving you a wide range of research opportunities. People interested in a marine transportation or engineering career have the opportunity to take cruises every summer to gain experience, and travel the world.
