Eager to learn and do well in their chosen procession. Helpful but competitive and adhere to the honor system. Most likely involved in extracurricular activities.
I would encourage prospective students to pick the campus where they feel most at home. This can be accomplished by talking to current and former students about their experiences at the school. After enrolling in the best school, I would strongly encourage freshmen to get involved in a leadership organization and one organization that corresponds with their chosen major. These activities will be good resume boosters, but will also allow them to make friends with others that have similar interests and classes.
It's large size.

The school spirt is astounding. The quality of education is one beyond comparison. Nothing compares to being an Aggie.
Make sure that the campus fits you as an individual. There are so many choices out there but as long as you find the one thats right for you, you will make the most of your college experience.

I would advise parents and students to ask questions because you really want to get to know the place you would be spending the next four years. Also, research the city and surrounding areas to find out about safety and crime rates in the city. I looked personally wanted something close to home, so that should be a determining factor as well. My biggest advice to any person entering college would be to set up a set schedule because you have no rules or regulations, to a certain extent. I would set up a regular workout routine, study routine, and a sleep routine, so you are well rested, healthy, and excelling in all of your classes. which is the most important part of college. Lastly, I would say don't be afraid to approach people chances are they are looking to make friends, or trying to find a friendly face. Most of all have fun and enjoy you without getting caught up in the constant partying and drinking that comes with most Universities. The first semester is the time you need to exercise some self control towards peer-pressure.
I believe the worst thing about Texas A&M is the fact that youmust live on campus to make friends, but if you want privacy (your own room) then you are forced to live off-campus because they do not offer private rooms for students. I am a very private person adn would not feel comfortbale ina room smaller than the one I have at my house, and sharing it with a complete stranger. I feel that this particualar ascpect of A&M, and any college for that matter should be fixed.
I believe the most frustrqating thing about Texas A&M Univerisity is its huge size. Some people may find this appealing, but i found it overwhelming, and hard to find friends. Clubs were on campus, but late at night, so if you wanted to go to campus alone, that was pretty much your only option. I lived off-campus and many of the poeple I already knew were not interested in the same things, so i ended up not makingmany friends because huge campus, with 300+ size classes, and too many culbs to choose from.

Do your research and know what you want to do and what you like in a school. Go to the school that offers the biggest challenge to you intellectually.

I would say to never settle for the first school that accepts you. Be sure to search around at other schools to be sure that your making the best decision for your school. Remember you have to make a big move so you want to make sure that its the right choice for your situation. As far as college experiece goes, try and meet some people who have the same major as you and stick with them for the duration of your time at A&M. This allows you to be able to have a study partner for test as well as someone who you can compare and contrast your class schedules with for the next 4 or 5 years.

You have to visit the campus that you show interest in; your surrounding plays a big role in how successful you are. Research the available activities and majors offered so that you know where you fit. Do not attend a school that is off base of what you plan to make as a career. If you feel uncomfortable when visiting, you may feel uncomfortable when you begin classes. Always feel confident in who you are and make the best decision for yourself. Get involved on and off campus so that you make friends with similar goals to your own. Always network, it will come in handy to know as many people as possible when looking for a job or for fundraising opportunities. If you have the chance to love on campus, do it for at least a year. By living on campus you are able to have all necessary options in walking distance, you will always be connected to ongoing festivities, and you will meet more people your freshman year. Go out and make the best of what you have and be yourself!
I love the tradition and comradery here. you always have alumni to help and support you quest to be successful.
Someone who is not going to take full advantage of the tradition and spirit that this school has. You have to netweork to do well and this school is full of possible ways to network. If you won't take school serious and know how to keep stress level down, don't attend.

The best thing about A&M is once you find your niche (and even when you are finding it) in academia you have tons of resources available. The staff and professors that I encountered were extremely helpful. I especially recommend the financial services office.
I've found some of the nicest most accepting at A&M and made lifelong friends. Not only did we engage ourselves intellectually, we talked openly about problems on campus and had lots of fun.
If there isn't the club for you at A&M, you get 3 other like-minded individuals on board and make your own club. That being said there are TONS of opportunities at A&M-- no one should feel excluded. One of my favorite activities was going to Yell with my dorm mates.
In response to 'do professors know your name?' My answer is yes, if you made an effort. An important caveat, merely attending class won't cut it at A&M you have to make time to talk to professors if you want the good recommendations. On the other hand, most of the Chemistry faculty were very generous with time and loved talking with students either during office hours and appointments. Another wonderful opportunity for students is participating in undergraduate research. You not only get to be in charge of your learning, you get a birds eye view on what scientific life is like even if you have no desire to remain in academia.
Although a large portion of the campus was conservative I experienced a very open atmosphere at A&M. Usually the graphic and negative postings on campus were torn down and deemed unacceptable by the student body at-large.
Conservative, Bible thumping, cult-like.

You want to make sure the college is for you. Dont settle with looking at just one, two or three colleges. Go out and look and 10 or 20. Once you have found three or four you like then start looking deeper into them. See which is best suited for you academically, fincially and socially. College is a huge step in life and can be fun. Make the most of it. Make friends. Join Clubs. It is not all that bad if you learn to balance your time out between hittingthe books and having fun.
I would have liked to know some more about my degree plan and lay out.
There is not much that I would call "worst " about texas A&M., maybe some of the teachers.

Texas A&M University is a place where all are welcome, the school spirit stirs the soul, the nights are forever young, and campus traditions are performed daily, but Aggieland is mostly a place where you are surrounded with familiar faces, balancing responsibility and fun, and embracing the person you are meant to become.
The advice I would, and have given in the past, is a little cleche but nonetheless important: follow your heart. That is truly the only way a prospective student should make a choice in determining which university he/she will attend. There will be several influences and factors such as financial aid, school and city population, reputation, traditions, etc. but the student will know based on his/her expectations where he/she should settle. If students look inside themselves and discover what makes them happy, they should commit to that happiness for as long as possible, especially during college years because these are the years where you are able to make something out of yourself and establish solid, life-lasting friendships, not to mention establishing a steady career. Once a student determines the university of his choice, he should be willing to try new things and be open to anything. I like to call it a "try-it-once" mentality (good judgment is not provided, but essentially necessary in several situations). It's college. You're away from your parents. Make the most of it, and yourself because you only get to do this once, so love it.
I wish I would've known that our football program, even though it receives a great amount of hype and anticipation before each upcoming season due to the high recruiting and the amount of returning starters, is an ultimate failure because the Aggies only disappoint the loving fans.

Texas A&M University has a great academic program that is chalenging, yet rewarding and the campus life and people here are amazing.
I did not consider any other school, but I feel that the school spirit and traditions here are unique and bring us togther as a campus and everyone is proud to be an aggie.
There are so many choices to consider when selecting a college that is right for you, and so many other factors to take into account as well. You have so many options to choose from and so many concerns, like where will I live, how will I pay for it, does it have a good academic program, can I get involved? All these things are very important and you should visit colleges first and get all the answers to these questions. You want a college that has a good reputation and good academics that fit into your degree program. College is very important and if you are worried financially don't let that stop you because there are so many options for paying for college and you should do some research on your available options first. College is such a rewarding experience. I encourage you to get involved because you will meet so many incredible people that will become your close friends. Don't stress out too much about things because you will be overwhelmed at times, but it always works out. Study hard and at the same time have fun and make the most of your experince.
