Texas A & M University-College Station Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (49)
TAMU is full of tradition and, although large, can feel like a small community if you get involved in the "other education." It's extremely supportive of research and leads in many fields. It is a rural environment, but the area has everything a college student would need.
It has a wonderful energy around it. The traditions play into the academics and reinforces the bond to the student community.
It is the best college anywhere, in every way. Academics, student involvement, networking, etc.
There is no place like Texas A&M. I couldn't think of a better place to build a community that will last the rest of your life.
The best experience I had very welcoming students and faculty. I felt like I was home and I have to visit because often because it is now apart of me.
I had a wonderful experience at Texas A&M. I received a top flight education, made great friends and memories. As Dr. Crompton told us in our last day of class of our last semester, "Education is what's left when the facts are gone."
Choosing Texas A&M University was one of the best decisions of my life. I learned so much and had an amazing experience both in class and out. I gained an abundance of work experience and really got hands-on opportunities in class.
Texas A&M was an incredible place. There truly is something that cannot be explained about the environment and culture here. It sometimes gets a bad wrap as "cultish" but I truly believe they instill great values and attract good people to where you can't help but fall in love. I was not your typical Aggie; I was not raised by Aggie parents. I did not have any desire to feed the Texas rivalry by attending either UT or A&M, but I wouldn't not have had it any other way looking back. It was far more diverse than I ever would have imagined from all of the stereotypes. There's a place for everyone if you look for it. I highly recommend living on campus your first few years. That experience is unforgettable. As far as the education goes, I always felt challenged and engaged. Even the mass freshman courses were well taught. I never had a prof who was unreasonable, and they always seemed intent on making sure students weren't going to fail. There were always resources for extra studying whether student led, or off campus. I loved my major because it required a study abroad. A lot of international focused degrees never actually require you to study abroad, or at least not for a significant time to where you truly experience another culture. International studies required at least a semester, and I would highly recommend a full year to anyone! After your study abroad you have to complete a thesis. Think about what you might want to write about while you're abroad. Collect information on it while you're there. Don't wait until you come back. Whether A&M is your first choice or not, it will never be a bad choice! Thanks and Gig 'Em!
Texas A&M has a largely homogenous undergraduate population made up of in-state students. It has an incredibly conservative undergraduate atmosphere that minority students or those with moderate or liberal viewpoints may find stifling and offensive.
A&M was more than a school for me. For three years it was my home. I made friendships that have lasted nearly a decade, and the experiences I had at university taught me as much as the classes I took. At the same time, my degree helped me get into a fast track nursing program, and has played an important part in my attaining a great job that I love.
