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.

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.

The majority of my classmates were very focused, challenged, and eager to learn the basics to enhance their knowlege so that they could continu their education with a solid foundation to have the confidence and self-esteem needed to seek a career in the medical field .

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

My advice to students finding the right college is to be selective, focus on the pros and cons, with a good understanding of what will help the individual flourish as an adult and become independent choice making individual. A person should be selective about his surrounding. Encouragement to select the right school size that suits his position is a must. The student needs to be comfortable with his surroundings because this will be his environment , his home for approximately four college years. A holistic approach need be considered because school is not all work, every individual that is to be whole must discover his own inner circle of social, spirtual, and emotional support. A student will make the most of the college experience by setting goals and living the dream. The person must have discipline, direction, and courage and humble himself in times of need. Relax, enjoy, and take advantage of this great path of opportunity that others only can dream of!

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

Parents and students should visit all the campuses during the fall they are looking to apply to, because just being observant about what goes on on the campus can really make a difference.

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

The entire town is one big community. The majority of the residents are either enrolled in the school or have recently graduated. Community service is strongly suggested. The Aggie family is unlike any other alumni. It is easy to get a job after college, especially using the Aggie network. Although the football team has not been successful for the past few years, the students are still very supportive at every game.

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

My recommendation for students with limited financial opportunity is to attend a local community college for at least the first year. This is an economical way to acclimate to the college environment. It also protects the student from destroying their GPA if they were to struggle the first year. One consideration when attending a college is to determine which career you want. Then, research which schools specialize in degrees for that career option. A campus community is another important factor. Most colleges offer plenty of extra curricular activities, but if you are interested in one in particular, find out if it is offered. Selecting the right college is just as important as determining which major you will pursue. Do not select a college based on where your friends are going or where your parents went. The college has to be a good fit for you. Look into the satisfaction of current students. Evaluate the professors and classrooms.

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

Aggies can tend to be a bit narrow-minded. There is not a lot of diversity on campus. Students tend to be focused on getting good grades. There is less partying during the week because students are working on their school assignments. The financial aid department is not very helpful. I dedicated hours of my time trying to get financial aid. The counselors seem to look for an easy way out of helping students. The only advice they offer is to fill out scholarship applications. It would be nice to have them take more time to help.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Academics: Engineering, Agriculture, Military Science, Business, International Studies, Architecture, Etc. Social: Texas A&M isn't so much a large consortium of students as it is a family. Although we have a huge campus with over 45,000 undergraduate students, you'll feel like you know everyone around you as soon as you get here. Everyone looks out for each other and there's never a feeling of judgement or discomfort in social situations. Extracurricular: More clubs and organizations than you could imagine. From fraternities and sororites to car clubs, cigar clubs, and political organizations. It's all here.

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

Collegeboard.com is your friend. Come up with a general are in the United States where you would like to go to school and then research the schools in that area. Then get a good list of 3-7 schools and tour each one. If you're able to do this while school is still in session, you'll get a better idea of how things actually are at the college or university that you're touring. Either way, pay attention to the reactions of the students as they see someone new. Do they look eiger to meet a new friend, judgemental, curious, or do they seem like their space is being invaded? Also, pay attention to the facilities and the history. If a school is rich in history and traditions, its an obvious sign that it has been doing something right.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is motivated, spirited, family oriented, etc. Texas A&M has more traditions and customs than any other school I can think of. It has a rich history that every student is proud to be a part of. If you want to wear your college ring and be recognized anywhere in the world, come to Texas A&M.

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

College is definitely a time to grow, so it's okay if the college you get into isn't the exact one you wanted. You'll face difficult situations (and probably difficult roommates) but it's important to remember you're learning as much or more from your day-to-day life as you are learning in your college classes. Research your options, be sure about what you don't want to compromise on, and be optimistic about your experiences at whatever school it is you end up going to. Focus on your school work, but not to the point where you aren't able to experience the other activities of college. Hiring companies are just as interested in what you learned outside the classroom as what you learned in it. Relax and enjoy. It's a fast 4 years.
