3 College Senior

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!

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: They are a zero tolerance school for alcohol and drugs. Even if over 21 for alcohol. The school is directly affiliated with the Galveston police department.

College Senior

Transportation: There is no transportation to and from campus. There is one city bus that runs back and forth twice a day. Not ideal if you depend on bus schedules. Many people who life off campus carpool which is very convenient. You are almost never more than 10 or 15 miles away from campus most are closer however.

2 College Senior

Weather: Days it is humid (which is many in Galveston) we get very hot walking to classes and buildings can sometimes struggle to stay cool. The mosquitoes come out and they are SO BAD! In the winter, it can be cold with winds ranging from 25 to 40 mph daily. It also rains all the time.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the feel of the campus. People are overall friendly and helpful. And it's on an island which is pretty amazing.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Plenty of computers in the library and computer labs. Internet can be a bit slow though.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm majoring in marine biology which is one of the biggest ones on campus so sometimes it's hard to get in with an adviser just because there are so many students and so few of them. Workload starts off easy but gets pretty difficult.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Campus is on an island so it can change fast. Rain boots and rain jackets are a good investment because the puddles get bad and usually when it rains, it's hard. It gets really windy too.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The midnight yells are definitely different. When I first heard them I thought I'd never see myself doing any of it but after orientation you realize how much fun it is.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I like my school because it's small and it's encouraged to be nice and help people out. The campus is on an island so we basically live on the beach. You can see dolphins in the harbor almost every day.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: A majority of guys are in the corps so they are in shape, decent looking, smart, and polite.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't pay much attention to sports but there are midnight yells on campus before games then everyone going to the games goes up to the main campus for a midnight yell there and then the game is the next day I think.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Main thing is they don't allow alcohol on campus no matter what age and if you're caught drunk there could be consequences too. Some professors give extra credit on days that a lot of people don't show up before holidays or something but most don't really take roll. They always remind you that "Aggies do not steal, cheat, or lie and don't tolerate those who do".

4 College Freshman

Parking: Campus is so small you can walk anywhere in like 5 minutes. You have to have a permit because the school is pretty much the only thing on the island so there isn't off-campus parking but it's not bad.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There's no nurse or whatever on campus. You have to drive across town to one of the designated offices which sucks when you can't drive. Safety-wise, campus is fine.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol is prohibited on campus and if you're caught drunk you could get in trouble but most of the students are 21 or older that do go to bars a lot. Tobacco is bigger on campus. Lots of smoking and chewing but it's designated to only a few areas.
