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

Choosing a college can be a daunting task, but it is best to start your research process early to identify schools that you are interested in. It is best also to pair yourself up with schools that you actually have a chance of getting into. It is alright to take classes from community college or even transfer into an university from a community college, but don't try and downsize yourself to a community college that cannot adequately fulfill your needs just because you don't think you are up for the type of challenge an university might give you. As for the college experience, these four, five, six, or however many years, are supposed to be the best years of your life. They are meant to be enjoyed, but best in moderation. Just remember that you came here for learning, and learning only helps motivate you to do more things that can sometimes lead you down a new life pathway.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone tired of a big city that wants something a little smaller and cozier.

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

The worst thing you can do is choose a college based off of other people. This means don't go somewhere because your parents went there, or your boyfriend is going there, or because all your friends will be going there, or even because it's the one place you can go that no one else will be going. This is about you. No matter where you go, though, it's your own decision to make the most of your college experience. You can choose to sit in the dorm all day, or you can choose to join an organization and make friends. Experience new things without fear. Know that these will be the four (well for some five or six...) fastest years of your life and you need to not waste them.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Conservative people who love tradition and Texas

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

Everyone says you have your whole life ahead of you and plenty of time to figure out what you want to do, but THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH TIME! I am 23, I have graduated, and I am still considering going back to school because I'm still not sure what I want to end up doing. So think long and hard about what you want. Look at your personality traits, your passions, and head in that directions andstay in close contact with your advisors throughout your college career!

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

First off...go to college far enough away from home that its not easy to go home on the weekends. You are going to college for a degree, yes, but you are also going to learn life. Get overly involved. if something intrests you, give it a try. When are you ever going to get the chance to be surrounded by thousands of people in the same boat that you are in. The kid next to you in class is just as nervous about the future as you are. Go into college with the mindset that you are going to become everyone's best friend. The more open you are to learning about people, new ideas and trying new things will only enhance your college experience and make you glad you graduated from the school that you did...but at the same time, each and everyday make you want to go back and be apart of campus once again.

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

Finding the right college can be difficult because of the wide variety of issues to sort through. The most important issue though is the student's comfort level with the university and surrounding town or city. A student can feel lonely or even become depressed if they do not feel comfortable in going to campus events or feel left out on campus. The flip side though is if the student feels obligated to go to every sporting event, campus event, or party they will probably become overwhelmed and feel like there is not enough time for everything. Students need to find a balance between these two situations in order to succeed in getting the most out of college, both academically and socially.

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

I wish I had known that my bachelor's degree would not be accredited when I graduated.

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

The worst thing about Texas A&M is that it is an extremely conservative school. I don't mind conservative people or philosophies except here it tends to be the only thing allowed. A person can express themselves but will generally be frowned upon or ridiculed if the thought does not align with conservative policies.

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

Texas A&M University takes great pride in their school and alumni. Corp Cadets are a unique military group that teach you honor, respect, and dedication to yourself , your school and society. Engineering and Agricultural school which are the best in their field. When you graduate from A&M you will become successful in you field of Study. The military recruits heavily for officers at this school. The intesity of the students and facilty is an incredible and unforgetable experience. This will be an incredible and rememerable stage in your life that you will never forget. You will now Gigem!

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

The mistake that I made was wanting to go too a university that my parents graduated from. My parents convinced me into selecting a school was a mistake. You wanting to make them happy sometimes doesn't make you happy. Which is fine but the ultimate person going to that university is the student. Universities have changed much. The university that your parents went too in the 80's is not the same now. People and faculty change every year at universities. It is their job to teach, mentor and give their knowledge to the students. Some schools take pride in their professors and pay them well. Some don't pay well but the professor takes pride in what they do and teach from the heart. Those are the professors I like. Professors that take pride, teach, will help you throughout life. Also, some parents want you to stay close or move as far away as possible. It is your choice to pick the amount of travel and how close you want to be if you are in trouble. Remember students don't have much money. The main determining factor is what do I want and be a successful person.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are a person that is young and want to party and slack off you will fail. You must be prepared for everything at this school. You will learn honor and respect. You will get the finest education in a military atmosphere. You have to be able to except any and all criticism. If you are a person that makes small mistakes and want to learn on how to correct the university will help correct and show you how to adapt to your mistake. The wick will not survive. You must be elite, smart, witty and adaptable to change.

Where you go should be a compromise between where you really want to go for non-academic reasons and where will give you a good education for what you want to do.

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

You can go to college any time. Chose that one time to be the best in your life. College is not about drinking and partying. It is about finding the freedom to be yourself. So many expereinces are offered not only at the college, but around town. These opportunities give you the option to find what you like best. Concentrate on school and get involved. Completely immerse yourself in college and soak up every minute of it. It won't last forever, but once you feel the love for your school, you will never want it to end.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who would love to get involved with the school and have a tremendous love for school spirit.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates tend to be narrow-minded, conservatives who simply rehash whatever propaganda that is told to them and never question anything or look deeper into topics on their own.

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

I think that the best thing that students can do to find the right college is to sit down and really think about what they want to do with their lives or what they think they are interested in and from there look at different colleges. Parents can support their children's decisions to study in whatever field they choose and not put undue pressure on their kids. Remember parents, it's not your life, it's your child's. Aside from that, visiting campuses and talking with current students will also help.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who has strong liberal feelings or really enjoys an artistic community shouldn't attend Texas A&M.
