"My time in college was an incredible gift! The atmosphere Texas A&M University has to offer is unlike any other school! There is a reason it is often referred to as "the friendliest campus in the nation." It is deeply rooted in tradition that unites students, past and present, from all over the world. This unity is very beneficial for job hunting as it provides an immense networking system known as "The Aggie Network." Aggies tend to have excellent reputations. Many companies have become fond of hiring other Aggies. My college experience was better than I could have ever imagined, with the hundreds of opportunities to get involved and friends that will last me a lifetime. I would recommend this university to everyone!! The Psychology program is a high-quality program, but not one I was particularly fond of because of the career I hope to pursue. There were definitely quality professors who made classes engaging and interesting, but if you are hoping to do clinical work in the field of psychology (mental health counseling, rehabilitation therapy, etc.), a Psychology undergraduate degree will not immensely target your interests. I only had about one or two classes (both which were phenomenal) that gave me a greater understanding of the human person that would help me be a better therapist. If you are interested in research or neuroscience, there are many wonderful professors that can grant hands-on experience and mentorship to undergraduate students that will surely help in entering a PhD or Master's program. I simply did not have these areas of interest and found the program to be lacking knowledge in what I was hoping for. Many classes covered theories, neuroscience, or research methods. Though these were quality classes, they did not satisfy what I was seeking in the program. It is an overall good program on par with other top tier universities."

"Texas A&M was an amazing institution that helped me immensely by gaining the skills and experience necessary or me to progress in my professional needs. Even more so, it continually felt like there was a huge family that I was a part of, resulting in a campus culture that made the majority of students feel welcomed, respected, and seen in their day-to-day experiences."

"Everything about Texas A&M University is special. From the professors, student body, traditions and student organizations, everyone makes you feel at home. No matter where you come from or where you see your future, you'll fit in here. The culture at Texas A&M is something you don't understand until you experience it for yourself. Now that I've graduated from Texas A&M, I love to run into former Aggies around town. Seeing someone else wear their Aggie ring with pride is the greatest feeling ever! Gig 'Em!"

"The Psychology department at Texas A&M University is a close, diverse family. The faculty are excellent teachers who truly care to that their students become successful psychologists. They do an excellent job of exploring the diverse applications of psychology, often merging with other fields (such as neurology, behavioral sciences, systems engineering, linguistics, counseling, etc.) for the sake of learning. Due to the diverse interests (whether applied or research based) and the small department size, extracurricular opportunities are numerous and relatively easy to get involved in. Your time at A&M can truly be as engaging and rewarding as you choose to make it."

"TAMU is a fantastic school for providing many degree options with top professors and researchers in nearly every field. The school is very large, so not for students looking for very small classes and an intimate environment. However, despite the large size, the university and town of College Station create a friendly and family-like environment full of traditions and positive energy. Football tradition is huge, clubs are abundant, and Greek life is available but definitely not a must in order to have fun or fit in. It is a conservative school that lacks somewhat in diversity, but for the most part there is still room for all types of people, lifestyles and opinions."

"Texas A&M is an interesting and friendly place to spend your college years. It is in a small town which is quite lovely. It is a very conservative place in ideals. The campus is large and somewhat cumbersome. There are many extracurricular activities, but it is also very large and you can get lost in the numbers."

"I love my Alma Mater. Texas A&M University offers affordable, public education coupled with deep-rooted traditions that prepare graduates for career and life opportunities. Texas A&M is a wonderful, enriching experience that is very unique to both Texas and the SEC conference. Be prepared to adore your school, your colleagues, your traditions, your Texas A&M."
