3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I travel daily to Laredo from Encinal. It is about a 45 minute drive. It isn't very convenient for me because I get home late many times and have to wake up early the next morning. The cost for gas is high and I travel on a highway so there isn't much safety.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Contacting the financial aid office is very easy and convenient they are always willing to help if you have questions. I still keep in contact with my high school counselor and she helps me out from time to time as well.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics here at our university are good I have attend a few sports events and they get very exciting.

5 College Junior

Diversity: I attend the International University so overall I believe we have the best diversity than any other university or college.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Some of the off-campus dining options are convenient because they aren't very far and there are so many to choose from, cost is average everywhere.

College Junior

Majors: I haven't had an internship and I'm not sure if I'll get one. I hope to get certified for personal training when I graduate.

4 College Junior

Majors: I'm very happy with my program and no I would not do it all over again because I want to move on and find my career job. I hope to get my certification in personal training or become a special education teacher for elementary students.

3 College Junior

Academics: The unique things about my major is that not very many people know what my major is when you first tell them. After explaining it may people stay fascinated with it because honestly it really is an interesting major to go for.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors who teach the Kinesiology courses. They're always looking for ways to get us involved in the community and to get us recognized by coaches and teachers.

3 College Junior

Weather: If the weather here isn't hot then we are not use to it but it isn't too bad all the building are easy to access no matter what type of weather we have.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love attending school at the Texas A&M International University because they always have different activities on campus. When you need extra help on school work the people at the writing and tutoring center are always willing to help. Overall it's a friendly environment.

College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek life here on campus.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus I actually travel 45 miles everyday just to attend school.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: It's nice and peaceful. The university I attend is located in a ranch area where you will see plenty of wildlife animals roaming around at night, to me it is pretty cool. You wouldn't see animals in a city like you do here.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Its an alright place to live nothing too crazy

2 College Senior

Athletics: There is basically no school spirit here, if anything the games are attended by family or organizations that have to be there, otherwise no one attends.

3 College Senior

Computers: On campus there is WIFI everywhere but at the dorms the internet is really slow...

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The school itself doesnt require exaggerated amounts of tuition but for some of us, we have to pay out of pocket if we are not given enough money for room and board or books, thats the only hassle really.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Its an International campus so theres alot of different flavors on campus.

Academics: I have noticed that the biology department is incredibly popular.

3 College Junior

Weather: This year it has been really pleasant, but it gets scorching during the summers.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are several late-night off-campus dining options.

3 College Junior

Parking: It really depends on the time of your classes. If you're like me and taking evening courses then it is not really a problem. However, it's always a pain whenever I have to visit the offices since their working hours end at 5pm.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like pretty much everything of my college, its not to big but also not to small. Students like to get involved into activities, either on-campus or off-campus, i mean the school spirit its pretty good. There's a lot of international students, therefore you get the chance to learn about their cultures.

There is only one thing that I don't like about my college, and it is that the Engineering field is not highly developed. We just have one degree and is Systems Engineering. We also have Pre-Engineering but it is a 2+2 program where the student is transferred to Texas A&M in College Station. I will really like that our school gives more options on this field, like electrical engineering and mechanical engineering.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am not really sure if the school provides help to find off-campus housing, but here in Laredo is not to hard to find an apartment. Prices vary depending on the zone, for example if you go to the north of the city prices are going to be for sure higher than anywhere else. If you have your own car, location should not be a significant issue, but let's say you do not have one, well luckily the school have some buses that are exclusively for students. They start they route downtown and go through all the city picking up students.

Texas A&M International University is a young, vibrant school that is still growing. However, the majority of current students will probably tell you that TAMIU doesn't necessarily provide them with the complete college experience because there is little social unity on campus and a lack of school spirit. But, on the upside, the University is still in the process of constructing efficient buildings and obtaining up-to-date equipment for educational purposes. While students may seem a bit disappointed with the lack of activities around campus, the school is still relatively new, is starting to show signs of growth, and has enormous potential. Right now, most students tend to do their own thing around campus, as opposed to spreading social unity. While it is true that the city of Laredo is not the most enjoyable atmosphere for students, the University’s academics more than make up for this.

The overall experience at TAMIU could be improved if organizations did a better job promoting the University and if TAMIU organized pep rallies to bring some school spirit back on campus. AutMus Fest is probably the only significant event of the school year and is not enough to bring people together. If there was another school that had cheaper tuition rates and a better academic background near Laredo, then some students might choose that over TAMIU. However, TAMIU is the only major university near the city that offers bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees. Overall, TAMIU is perfect for people who enjoy a small city but are not necessarily looking for the full “traditional” college experience.
