Texas A&M University - College Station Reviews, Bachelor's in Psychology
Texas A&M's mission is to mold individuals to think differently, to create passionately and to contribute positive, innovative ideals into the world. They also guide and mentor students to engage in their learning in a professional manner, preparing them not only for the academic environment, but the professional world as well. No matter how big the student body grows I always feel safe and welcoming on campus. There may not be as many howdys thrown around but if you are in need of assistance you will not have to search long to find it. There is a mutual respect and sense of safety among everyone present on campus. I think a perfect example is the Aggie human wall that students and staff formed to protect a family of a fallen solider against protesters. This showed that no matter what their personal beliefs were, it was all set aside to help stop an obvious wrong doing. I cherish the sense of tradition the school still holds true to. Through all the traditions at the games, to not walking on the grass or removing your hat in the MSC, it all stems from respect. The campus stands for the good virtues that seem to have been lost on the modern world. It is a safe haven for all the negativity and chaos in the world and although no institution is perfect I think overall Texas A&M embodies what it means to have good, true values. No matter how far I travel I know I will always find a home in Aggieland. Thanks and Gigem.

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.
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.
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.
