The school spirit around here is second to none. The "Aggie Spirit" is a living, breathing thing. Students care very deeply about the traditions this school is rooted in. The extensive network of alumni help to ensure that spirit never dies. The other schools I considered had spirit and traditions, but they just seemed like an exaggerated high school.


One thing that has stood out to me compared to other Universities I have visited is the strong bond students share. No matter if it's a sports event, a tough class, or if you just get lost on campus, there are always people willing to help each other. My first day freshman year I got lost, but I felt so comfortable going up to someone, especially a person with an Aggie Ring since that meant they had been at A&M for a while, to ask for help.


Diversity doesn't play much of a factor at this University, so maybe and possibly, it helps students feel more comfortable in a stable environment. Either way, you'll find someone who accepts you just the way you are.

Every month Aggies will write condolence letters and gather in the academic plaza for a silent ceremony to comfort the families of the fallen and honor the memory of all students have passed from this world. This experience is heartbreaking and breathtaking as you see how Aggies take care of each other.


What is unique about Texas A&M is that once an Aggie a person is always an Aggie, I learned this during the Universities first Silver Taps where they honor students who have passed.

This makes my school so special because the Aggie family is forever.

A&M is big on traditions, and quite frankly that’s just exactly what makes it so unique; from the simple greeting of HOWDY to the ever-standing 12th man at football games, A&M constantly promotes love, peace and tradition. Although some may see these traditions as conservative, I however recognize it for what it truly is, a treasure. A treasure that only those known as aggies are allowed to partake in, thus when I say the words “thanks and gig ‘em”, only those that know the true meaning will understand the value in that one simple phrase.


Everything about Texas A&M is unique compared to other schools. The traditions here are the practiced daily and are very important to all of the students, faculty, and staff. Anyone who is an Aggie or has been an Aggie, remains one forever. There is such pride in being an Aggie, and I could not imagine being anything else. All students are involved and excited to be here, and the students are the absolute best sports fans.


Texas A&M is very rich on traditions, but more importantly Texas A&M is within the top 50 in about every aspect of the school from scholastics to athletics to professors to internships. It is the best all around school there is!
