Overall, I would say the school is worth the money you pay. There are plenty of things to do on campus and there is a club or group for every single interest you may have. The people are generally nice and some go out of their way to help you. The campus is extremely clean and well taken care of. Some of the buildings are outdated, but not to a point where you can't focus on what you're there to do.
Overall, I think that Texas A&M is a great college. I enjoy my classes and believe that for the most part, there are some very good professors. There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved as there are always people standing with banners to promote their organizations. With TAMU being so large, I always joke with people that you have to work harder to not make friends than you do to make them. Basically, there are friends to be made everywhere you go.
Before my senior year of high school, I had no idea that TAMU even existed. As an out of state student, I was not raised as an Aggie; however, I know my future kids will be. Being an Aggie comes with so much pride, so much so, other schools refer to us as a "cult". Our traditions run deep, the southern hospitality is through he roof (especially if you're from the north like myself), and rain or shine, the 12th man always shows out. We are the largest public university in the U.S., and we have one of the largest football stadiums in the country. The campus spans about three miles, but with all that said, TAMU fosters a community like nothing I've ever seen before. I have yet to encounter an inaccessible professor, and I see many of the same faces daily. Academically, our engineering is huge, but the kinesiology department is where I reside, and the opportunities I have already been presented with are incredible. The Mays business school is also often raved about. The on campus housing has lots of different options, but it's important to submit your housing app early due to the influx of students. I lived in the southside modular dorm my freshman year, and will be on the northside in balcony style hall my sophomore year. Many opt to live off campus, but options in that sector are also quite good from what I've heard. College station is a college town, so although there is not normal "city life", everything is centered around A&M and its students. We have three amazing rec centers on campus, plus playing fields, and many study spots aside from our libraries. We have food such as Starbucks, Chick Fil A, Smoothie King, Panda Express, Einstein Bros, Shake Smart, and other offerings including burgers and pizza. There are three main dining halls, although I am not as big of a fan of these. The meal plan is convenient freshman year, but I wouldn't suggest going unlimited (you won't need it, trust me). Gen Ed classes are typically larger lecture halls, but I always sat towards the front, so they never really felt that large to me. The way each professor runs their class is different, some take attendance but many don't. Ultimately, you are responsible for carrying your own weight because they will often not check up on you. However, I did actually have a professor email me asking if I was alright when I hadn't attended a few classes. This goes to prove how caring our "family" really is. As you get into more niche coursework, classes do shrink quite a bit. While A&M is very tradition based, I would still consider it more progressive. Here, there is space for everybody. We have clubs and groups catering to just about any interest one could think of. There are always cool things going on, such as pop ups, giveaways, live music, etc. The party scene is lively, but certainly not necessary here. As we are a part of the SEC, sports are HUGE! This is one of the many reasons why we have so much pride. We also have a very active military program (the Corps of Cadets), if that's your cup of tea. Of course, there are downsides. The weather is unpredictable, and I'm sure there are people who find TAMU is not the right fit for them. But in my experience, as a girl who entered knowing no one or one thing in the state of Texas, I can truly say I have loved my first year at Texas A&M. Not to mention, an Aggie Ring connects you with thousands of Aggies worldwide; the Aggie network is endless! If you are looking for a large school with lots of pride, great academics, state of the art facilities, and an amazing community, don't hesitate to look into TAMU! Thanks and Gig 'Em!
I began my journey as a Texas A&M University student during the junior year of my undergraduate degree, after initially attending a junior college during my freshman and sophomore years of college. Immediately after my first semester began, I felt a sense of belonging among other students, faculty, and alumni. Everybody at Texas A&M University, regardless of their nationality or background, welcomed me as if I were a member of their family. Over time, the feeling of belonging increased significantly, and I could not have imagined myself attending another university while working on my undergraduate degree. Texas A&M University revolves around its six core values, including selfless service, integrity, excellence, respect, loyalty, and leadership, each of which is noticed on campus and off, setting great examples for communities around the world.

If I could go back into time and give my past self advise, I would tell myself to keep on keeping on! Never lose sight of your dream. There will be many trials and times where you will be beaten down and feel like you can't go on but you can. Have you friends speak truth over you, talk to an advisor or pastor. The number one thing you can do is believe in yourself. You are your worst critic and you shouldn't listen. Know the truth, believe it, and run with it.
My classmates at Texas A&M, collectively, are all eager and ready to learn while still able to balance a social life, be active in campus activities, and serve the community.
Texas A&M's history and tradition rich environment makes it stand out above the rest and is what I consider to be its best characteristic. Whether it be how the university started or all the traditions that have been around since it's beginning, students can truly feel the impact Texas A&M has and will have on their lives. "From the outside looking in, you can't understand it. And from the inside looking out, you can't explain it." It's something you just have to experience to understand its meaning and power.
There is a spirit in Aggieland that is unlike anything else I have ever experienced. From the outside looking in, you can't understand it. From the inside looking out, you can't explain it.
Texas A&M is a friendly campus. There's always something to be involved in, and it is just a good school to come to.
Although I love many things about Texas A&M, the worst thing about the university is its lack of a journalism/Public Relations major. Although Texas A&M does offer a minor in Journalism, which I am currently enrolled, I would like the school even better if that major were to be offered. It is difficult to find bad things about the University because of its great education, encouraging atmosphere, and school spirit.
How much more time I needed to take out for studying and less time out being social.
Texas A&M is a very close-knit community of people who share common bonds of school pride and tradition. People who are socially-minded and who long to be part of a family-type school environment will love this campus. School spirit is very strong here, so people who are looking to get involved and really invenst in their education and extracurriculars will thrive at this university.
Somebody who likes to be lazy would not do well at Texas A&M University because there is a lot of work involved in each class. The work is not hard, but it is time consuming. You have to be able to balance each class with the amount of time in a day.
Traditions. That is what I brag about whenever I go home or whenever I talk to friends attending other colleges. Whether it be saying "Howdy!", doing your classes wildcat, or the 12th man, we are all united here at A&M. The 12th man is by far the best tradition that is worth bragging about because if you have ever been to an Aggie football game then you will know what I am talking about. We are solidified against whatever the cause may be no matter the sport or the reason and is worth all the bragging.
In my opinion, the most frustrating thing is getting around town without a car. My parents didn't allow me to bring mine and it gets pretty frustrating every time I need to get groceries or if I just want to go out for a relaxing time. Just bring a car!
My school is best known for its tradition. The twelth man causes to the students to feel involved in school and I love every second of being there. My school is also known for its academics and connections. I will be receiving some of the best education in the world as well as being well connected whenever I need to start working.
The best thing about TAMU is all the people that I got to meet, including my girlfriend. It truly is a college town, because with a name like College Station, you wouldn't have the city without the university. There is a tremendous amount of school pride all because of our many and various traditions that have a stronghold on life.
The academics of the engineering department are of the highest standards in Texas and in the US. I am a Nuclear Engineering major. The requirements of the academics here are challenging but extremely rewarding with opportunity and experience. My department leans more towards research in the various fields of nuclear engineering. It's well known that Texas A&M is a more research-oriented school, however, we have recently been recognized as one the top 5 school in the nation that companies come to in order to find future employees.
Um.... is there any?
Not by any means. We are just like every other standard college town.
People part thursday night big time!!!! friday night a little and usually saturday night is a chill night... i lived in an off campus dorm called the callaway house which is awesome if you are not into the yucky dorms! lol frats and sororities are semi big here but not a must...its all about what u want
Dumb rednecks, etc. It isn't particularly accurate.
OMG! it's crazy packed. The stands are always full of maroon and the whole student body is there till the start of the game till the end supporting
Because I grew up in College Station and I've loved everything A&M from a very young age. My desire to go here was solidified when I saw they had a leading business program at Mays.
