Describe the students at your school.

I enjoyed so many of the people I met in classes, and made a few life long friends, or at least temporary study buddies.

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

Apply to more than a few schools, and once accepted, visit the campuses of your top few picks. Talk to friends, friends' older siblings or family members, and ask questions. College is not only an important learning experience, it is invaluable to your social relationships. You will meet so many people that affect your life in so many amazing ways. Take advantage of that.

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

To take advantage of all the amazing resources at your disposal as a student. A&M has some of the best Alumni in the nation and is unmatched in facilities in many majors. TAKE ADVANTAGE!

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

Don't pick a college based on the social life. You can find something to do or people to befriend anywhere you go. That is what is great about college. No one will judge you for who you are. For the most part, people have more important things to worry about than their, or your social status. This is a good thing, because it shows that you are surrounded by adults that want to better themselves, and make friends for life. Also have a good idea of what type of field you are interested in. You don't have to know exactly what you want to do, but it is a good idea to have some path picked out for yourself. If you have no clue, take an aptitude test. You don't want to switch majors every year. Also, don't be in a hurry to graduate. Enjoy your time in college. You will never be exposed to so much diversity, excitement, or opportunity ever again. The real world will hit you, and occasionally, you will wish you were back. I loved my college and will never forget my time there. Good luck, study hard, and have fun!!!

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

Attending Texas A&M is a unique opportunity to attain a world class academic education as well as exceptional training in leadership and social skills.

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

Very unique school spirit and traditions and sense of community; emphasis on community service and loyalty to the USA and the school

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

Visit the campus! Go with your parents, but also try to spend a weekend there without your parents seeing what the community is really like. Ask freshmen from all the places you apply how they feel about their freshman year and take note of trends in terms of universities where freshmen seem especially happy and well-adjusted. Ultimately, you'll know, and if you end up transferring, it's not the end of the world.

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

Texas A&M is the best choice I have ever made in my life and something that will stick with me for the rest of my life, whether it be in friendships or in job opportunities.

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

For the parents I would say just to let your child go to the college they wish to attend. If the student is unhappy or disappointed, they will not function in the collegiate setting. Also, be supportive of your child no matter what they choose to be their major, who they hang out with, or how much money they ask for (of course, there's always a limit!). Knowing you are there for them will help more than anything you could ever send them, buy them, or do for them. For the students I would just say to really get involved and make friends. Don't let studying cause you to miss out on college. Degrees give you jobs, but networking and friends gets you the promotion and the career. Take advantage of things on-campus like tutoring services, counseling services, writing centers, computer labs, clinics, and legal services. Basically, if it's free take advantage of it: it won't be free later in life.

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

Really get involved in campus activities. The friends you make are 100X better (and more important) than the classes or schoolwork. Don't judge the school by Fish Camp or New Student Conference. A&M is a lot more diverse and artistic than pictures and descriptions may let on. Although they have a reputation for being conservative, there is very high tolerance.

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

Take your time and look at all the options. Meet faculty and students before you decide. Just because eveyone in your family or all your friends are going to a certain school doesn't mean it is right for you. Make a list of what you want in a college or university and what goals you have for your colleg career. Once you are there take the time to get involved and meet new people. Explore the town and surrounding area. After you are settled in you will have time to study, just don't forget to do it. And don't forget to call home. Set goals and make plans, but leave room to flexible and spontanious too. People will have advice and expectaions for you, but be sure to do what is in your best interest becuase sometimes it will effect the rest of your life and not the life of the person giving the advice. Let college be a time prepare for the future both in the classroom and outside of it. Don't work too hard or play too hard. Find a good balence.

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

First of all, I would convince students to make their decision based on their own standards and desires. Ultimately, the school they choose will be a place where they grow in their education as well as their individual maturity. Therefore, you must set these standards ahead of time. If tuition cost or student population are high priorities on your list, strive for those. In the end, it is your choice and you want to feel a peace about it once it is made. God will open the right doors as long as you are looking in the right places. For parents, I would encourage them to be in on the process of deciding what is best for their child. These parents will have wisdom from their own college experiences to offer. However, allow your son/daughter to be the one to make the final decision from your guidance. The day a decision is made should be an exciting, joyous day. Celebrate together and don't look back. A bright future for the student and parents awaits!!

What's unique about your campus?

The fellowship with others and the spirit of the school. Everyone at A&M is overly friendly with a great focus on school tradition. A&M prides itself on its legacy of strong values and traditions. These make for fun game days as well as touching and inspiring school gatherings. Every Aggie past and present will always be connected to a common thread.

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

I wish I had known I could take more hours a semester than what I was first told. I would have been able to graduate a full year early if I had taken a fuller course load my freshman year.
