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.

Degree: Biological and Physical Sciences
Graduation Year: 1992

My experience at Texas A&M was tremendous. It did not seem logical at first to have an oceanography program "inland", but the resources available through the College of Geosciences, as well as partnered programs contribute to a perfectly rounded experience. I loved my time in College Station and becoming an Aggie. The small town atmosphere as well as a devoted student body I feel contributed to an experience I will cherish forever.

Degree: Computer Engineering
Graduation Year: 2004

Between the Corp and engineering department I couldn't have asked for a better preparation for life. The traditions make memories and the camaraderie makes friends, that last a lifetime. Yet the most valuable benefit is being part of the Aggie network.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 1984

Texas A&M is a wonderful place to attend college. The atmosphere is great and like none other.The school is very large but there is a family-like small school atmosphere that is uncommon in large institutions. The Aggie Family is a great network. The communications department was small but had an excellent faculty. They were able to provide quite a bit of individual instruction.

Degree: Petroleum Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Texas A&M is a one of a kind institution. The engineering program is one of the best in the country, and the Petroleum Engineering department is second to none. In engineering, the lessons learned in lecture are a small piece of the puzzle when it comes to preparing for "the real world." Learning to work in teams, how to network, how to manage time on projects, how to communicate effectively, etc, are some of the most important takeaways from school. Texas A&M produces some of the best engineers because they have mastered how to teach the technical items while also preparing students for what they will encounter in industry. Outside of the classroom, the traditions we Aggies hold dear are what make Texas A&M such a special place. Everything from Silver Taps to Midnight Yell, Aggie Muster to standing as the 12th man during football games, the traditions make Texas A&M what it is.

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2008

TAMU is very dedicated to tradition and prides itself on the family atmosphere it creates. It is a large university, but there is something for everyone. Once you find your niche it feels much smaller. The professors are very dedicated and leaders in their fields. Research is a top priority as well.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2010

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.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2013

The English program offerings at Texas A&M are woefully narrow. The rhetoric department has some great professors--but only three courses. The literature department seems focused on medieval literature, a concentration that is unhelpful for most students. Definitely consider another school if you desire an English degree. As a whole, though, the Aggie experience can't be beat. School spirit runs strong, and you'll find yourself taken by it even if you doubt you will. Camaraderie is high, the student facilities are top notch (especially with the recent additions), and there's plenty to do on the weekends. Financial aid is readily available, both in need- and merit-based forms. Apply for everything, even if you don't think you'll get it. Despite my reservations about the English department, the faculty at A&M are awesome. One of my physics professors was a Nobel Prize winner in physics, one of my rhetoric professors almost literally wrote the book on the study of Plato's rhetorical theories, and I worked for another physics professor who was developing a new dark matter detector in collaboration with NASA and hundreds of other researchers around the world. There's a vibrant academic community around every corner.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012

Fantastic university. There is no better value that you can get for your money. The petroleum engineering program is tough, but worth it in the end, as Texas A&M is the number 1 most recruited company for petroleum engineers by oil and gas companies. Competition for jobs is tough, but Texas A&M makes it easy with the career fair, career center, and company visits.
