Degree: International Relations and National Security Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 209

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!

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2013

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.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2010

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.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2010

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.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 1994

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.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 1997

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.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2005

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.

Degree: Nutrition Sciences
Graduation Year: 1987

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

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2005

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.
