College Freshman

Scholarships: Did not apply for financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Since we are a branch of College Station, we are only offered intramural sports. This is very popular on campus, many students participate. It is a big deal!

Campus Strictness: The school is a dry campus and is very strict when it comes to alcohol or drug use on campus. There have been a few people that have been dismissed from the university for alcohol/drug violations.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Popular degrees on campus are Marine Biology, Maritime Transportation, Maritime Administration, and Marine Engineering Technology. Workload varies for each degree but all prove to be challenging. Great study abroad programs are offered for all.

4 College Freshman

Computers: I use my own laptop on campus, however the printers I use are great! It is free and available to anyone enrolled. Occasionally the printers will mess up, but the library workers will fix it in no time if you report the problem. No color printer in the library for the moment though. Good news is that there is always someone on campus who has a color printer that is willing to let use it to print an assignment off!

3 College Freshman

Majors: I came in as a general academic major because I had no idea what I wanted to do. This caused me to not do some well my freshman year. I had no advising since I was a general academic major. There were two classes I should had dropped but didn't. Now I am in Maritime Administration (business) and I receive advising. The program is great so far and I hope to graduate with a job dealing with logistics of ships and shipping.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love it so far! I the curriculum is interesting and with some networking clubs on campus for Maritime Administration, you can travel and meet business men and women in the maritime industry with your prospective job. The networking is awesome! The professors are willing to help you excel in the major.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everyone is required to live on campus until age 21 and to have a 15 to 19 meal plan. This makes living on campus very expensive. However, it allows students easy access to tutoring opportunities, sports, and on campus events. The school is a dry campus and is very strict on their policies for alcohol.

2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: We are a dry campus. Anyone under 21 must reside in the dorms and are not allowed to drink or use drugs whatsoever. Dorm rooms are broken up by gender in each hall with visitation hours. Anyone over 21 is not allowed to bring alcohol on campus either.

We go by the Aggie Honor code where aggies do not lie, cheat, or steal. Students will be kicked out of school if they get caught.

3 College Junior

Diversity: We are a small campus, but are totally accepting of one another. Since most students are southern Texas in-state students, it's not a bunch of diversity.

2 College Junior

Transportation: We are a campus located on its own island. We have a gas station with a connivence store, but if you need anything else, you'll have to drive off-campus.

4 College Junior

Computers: Printing is free and you have an unlimited amount to print. The computer lab is now open from 8am-3pm and 24hours during finals week.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I utilize the Post. 9/11 G.I. Bill from my parents and working with the V.A. office here has been a breeze. A bunch of my friends work with financial aid and have not had much problems.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife is on Thursdays and is usually on the Strand which is located downtown (10 minutes from campus). Yagas, Tsynami's, and Float are the big bars but are all 21 and up. Buckshots is the country dance bar and is 18+. There are also bonfires on east beach or 8 mile, all you need is a truck, a bunch of wood pallets and music. During the Fall semester, most party people travel to Main Campus for football games and party at North Gate. There is a bus that will take people up for the weekend and bring the back.

Off-Campus Dining: Eating off campus is okay. It's better than eating on campus. Lots of Mexican, Chinese, and fast food. There are some Landry's restaurants which are great, but expensive. Nothing healthy though.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There are so many things to do in Galveston. Yes there may be some pricey activities, but there are tons of free or cheap things to find. You just have to look. Food can be a little pricey though!

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is great! However, watch out for where you choose to live off-campus. Galveston has a lot of scum since the hurricane and there are areas that students should stay away from. Lots of choices however with different price ranges.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Normal diversity on campus. Nothing stands out on campus.

2 College Senior

Computers: Nothing is open 24 hours. So if you do not own your own computer you are out of luck after they close. The computers that hold engineering software - those labs close at 6! Way to early if you ask me. They have 2 computers that hold the same software in the library. Those computers almost never work, and besides, the library closes by midnight most nights. Definitely need your own computer.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's great if you get the brand new dorm rooms. They offer several study rooms, a full kitchen on the first floor, a classroom, and clean spacious rooms. You do not want to live in the old dorm rooms! They are like an old motel 6 - used and beaten from the weather over time.

3 College Senior

Majors: Only 7 majors. You have to dedicated to attend this school. Transferring could result in starting over. If you do not like your major there are not may options to switch to that will be in the same field.

3 College Senior

Majors: Getting in to Offshore and Coastal Systems Engineering is not difficult to get into. There is a preliminary lower level class system you must pass with a certain GPR in order to move forward. Failing a class, or not fitting one in your schedule could easily result in an added year to your education. They hardly offer classes more than once a year including fall, spring and summer.

College Senior

Greek Life: We do not have Greek Life at Texas A&M University at Galveston

5 College Senior

Scholarships: The financial aid office can be very helpful. Make friends with the women and men who work there!
