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

Spend time visiting college campuses and asking a lot of questions. Also, start early looking for financial aid. When I say early, start as a junior in high school. See what all the college has to offer and definitely consider the expense.

Texas A&M has a long standing tradition of camaraderie amongst its students making it a great choice not only for meeting new students, but lifelong friends, and the city of college station a great city to live in.

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

One of the best ways to choose the right college is to simply visit the college. Parents and students can gain invaluable insight into a college or university by walking around campus, taking tours of the campus, and meeting local students to learn of the atmosphere and academics on campus. Tours also provide a great way for students to make an intuitive decision on whether they may feel comfortable at a certain college. My decision to attend Texas A&M came largely from meeting local students and professors who were very personable and dedicated to creating a smooth transition for incoming freshmen. Parents and students can also gain insight into the college experience by examining the city in which the college is located. It is important to remember that much of your time will be spent studying at your apartment or dorm room, and if you're uncomfortable in a certain setting (i.e. urban, rural, etc.), then your college experience will likely not be a good one. So, always visit your prospective college before blindly accepting, and never forget to "feel out" the city in which your college is located to make sure you will be comfortable.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

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.

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

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.

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

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!

What's unique about your campus?

I love the tradition and comradery here. you always have alumni to help and support you quest to be successful.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

Describe the students at your school.

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.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

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.

What are the academics like at your school?

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.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

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.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Conservative, Bible thumping, cult-like.

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

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.

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

I would have liked to know some more about my degree plan and lay out.

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

There is not much that I would call "worst " about texas A&M., maybe some of the teachers.
