Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

People tend to be a little more conversative than most people in college. Many people consider themselves Christians, and there is a lot of religious people on campus.

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

Make sure you know what major you want to go into and the job associated with that degree when you graduate. Get involved in organizations that have to do with those jobs before you graduate, and be realistic about the money and time you will spend in that first job. College is a means to a career, not a career in itself.

What's unique about your campus?

There is something that bonds us all together. The culture and tradition of the school is very strong, and you do not find that at many other schools.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I did a lot of research before I came here to Texas A&M. My father graduated from here and I have been visiting here all my life. Once I got here I knew what to exspect, I knew that there would be hard work but it would all be well worth it in the end.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Texas A&M University is known for its spirit, tradition and heritage. The Aggie network is a strong connection among all Aggies past and present. Aggies are all family, no matter your gender, ethnicity, major or economic standing. A&M is very proud of its student organizations and have over 800 campus affiliated groups run by students. I have never met an Aggie who is not proud of their university.

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

Think about your high school experience. Think hard. What were you involved in? Band, theatre, sports, UIL, debate, not much? Also, were you known throughout your class? Did you enjoy being able to know most of the people that you passed in the hallway or did you feel content staying as part of the crowd and not getting too noticed? If you like just being one of students, fitting in and going with the flow, then a big university will fit your style quite well. But, if you were the social butterfly type and loved being able to share a conversation with anyone that you ran into at school, a smaller university will fit you better. It is hard to feel comfortable at a large school such as Texas A&M when you come from a small high school where you knew everyone and they all knew you. Once you find your appropriate college, start early trying to become involved in organizations that will fit your personality and your acquainance needs. All freshman have a new beginning when they arrive in college, so hit the ground running and become active in a group that you feel strongly about.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you don't like deeply engrained traditions, dedicated leaders, a volunteer environment, class unity, accross the board comaraderie, academic excellence, beautiful scenery or an opportunity for life long frienships, then I would not suggest Texas A&M.

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

Visit the school. I think that is so important to be able to get a feel of what the campus and student are like and to see if it is a fit for you. Also, look into the areas that interest you. For example, I'm really interested in extracurriculars and A&M has a wide variety which really attracted me. Another thing to take into consideration is the quality and atmosphere of education. Like if the class size is too big or too small for you. Talking to students who already attend is a great idea as well!

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

To students, following your heart and not having others influence your decisions not only finds the best campus and environment for you, it also makes the college experience worthwhile in the end. The heart speaks volumes when its feelings are interpreted by the mind. To parents, happiness for your child, not your personal desires or money, is the key to success. Let your child do what makes them happy, and love them through thick and thin. If you open up to where they want to go in the future, they will open up to you and it will be an experience both parents and students will not forget.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants a focused education with a majority of students choosing not to be involved in illegal activities (drinking, etc.)

Texas A&M is a prime example of school spirit and cohesion among a very diverse group of people with varied backgrounds and beliefs.

Describe the students at your school.

There are so many different types of people in my classes with so many varied ideals that it is next to impossible to describe an 'average' classmate.

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

Your initial choice is not always the best one. There is definitely a certain amount of planning that needs to go into this decision. Many students tend to choose the first, easiest and/or safest choice because it is 'comfortable.' A huge part of going off to college is being taken out of your comfort zone and placed in new environments with new interactions. It's important to look for a school that will allow this growth without causing any unnecessary stress. More than just academic prestige should be taken into account when deciding because this is going to be your home for the next four or more years. That means you should consider the distance from home, extracurricular possibilities, and anything that is specifically important to your learning, and living, style. Overall, I think the most important thing to remember while looking for that perfect school is that there are thousands of other people in the same position that want to find themselves and figure out what to do with their lives just as much as you do. So choose a school that will ultimately make you happy with yourself. This is YOUR college experience, no one else's.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Texas A&M is a spirit of diversity, unity, devotion, desire, passion, committment, trust, honor, respect, courageousness, disipline, and most of all integrity. Hope thats a good enough sentence for you...

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

I'll try my best to give the most truthful, honest, and humble words i can. To the students. Do not think that your mind can be limited because it cannot. Close your eyes. Focus on the person that you are and the dreams you have for your life. Focus on what you love, what you care about, what you feel in your heart is right. We do not all have the same faith or beleifs, but in this instance i must speak from my own heart and what i beleive. Follow God. Follow God with all your heart, body, mind, and spirit. Let Him call you to where He wants you. Your joys in life will be endless with HIm. There is no college experience like the one you will have with the Lord in your heart. Listen to Him...he will guide you. He will lead you to the place where you will grow the most. I beleive you are my brother/sister even if i have not had the honor to meet you. Friend, whoever you are now and are to become, i pray that God will guide you. Follow your heart...God be with you. Goodbye.

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

Texas A&M is a great campus to be on. It is culturally diverse, and extremely friendly. People always know when they've found an aggie because the first thing they say is "Howdy!" And besides that, most people cant miss the aggie ring on their finger. I think that i brag about the Aggie ring more than anything because I cant wait to have my own. Anytime one aggie sees another they always say hello. That is what it means to be part of the Aggie network....to be part of the aggie family. A&M is just beautiful.
