Texas A & M University-College Station Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (51)
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.
College Station is the best place on earth! I was absolutely in love with the school spirit and the overall atmosphere. My education was top-notch and enjoyed my classes and professors.
TAMU was great school. A lot of the professors have actual real world experience so they have great insight. I would suggest if you are looking into the management degree you stay to get your masters before you go into the work force. Just having the bachelor's is okay but a masters sets you apart. Mays Business school offers a lot of options for double majors and 5 year masters programs. I would suggest looking into these early.
Like any large school, it can be easy to get swallowed by the masses. You will have to advocate for and plan your education path more than in a small school. There are lots of resources available for support, but if you want to be independent, that's up to you. The instructors I had were generally top notch. There are of course a few that take some getting used to, but that's true anywhere. The variety of courses available is outstanding. Aggies are the greatest community of students and alumni anywhere. I didn't put a lot of planning into my school choice, but my first Silver Taps erased any doubts. The Aggie Network is an invaluable resource. The reputation of the engineering program helped me get my first job and has been remarked upon positively throughout my career.
I attended Texas A&M for a degree in Biomedical Science, which gave me an education preparing me for the medical field. I was prepared for the 8 years I spent in veterinary medicine, the 8 years I spent in the pharmacology field after that, and now as an RN. This major covers many sciences (from Biology to Biochemistry, Anatomy to Pharmacology, and other options for electives). It is a difficult major but well worth it if medicine is what one chooses to pursue.
I didn't know how lucky I was to go to A&M for my education degree. I taught in Spanish Harlem and Plano, Texas after I graduated and I was a lot more prepared than my peers who went to other schools. I loved the teachers and I feel like all of my upper level classes helped prepare me for my teaching career.
Texas A&M University is like no other. The friendly atmosphere helps a student to adapt to student life. The professors in my major were concerned about my well-being and caring. I am proud that my daughters are now third generation Aggies. The traditions of Texas A&M University set it apart from all other schools. Gig'em
A business degree from Texas A&M set me up for success. In my junior year, Texas A&M organized all the big accounting firms to come to the school to recruit. That led to an internship with EY. That internship led to a one year rotation in EY’s National Office in New York City my first year with the firm. Those relationships and that skill set are still paying dividends 10 years later.
The Texas A&M Chemistry Department is a state of the art facility that provides all the resources needed to obtain a high quality Ph.D. The classes are designed to help you become a better researcher and faculty is driven to provide cutting edge research to the world.
