Texas A&M University-College Station Reviews

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.
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.
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.
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.
