Computers: Student Computing Center was awesome. As were the computer labs in the geology and petroleum engineering labs. Everything seemed to work smoothly for me.

Drug Safety: I never knew anyone to get in trouble for drugs or alcohol on campus. There was on campus drinking, but it was very hush hush and we all looked out for each other. If you didn't want to participate you didn't and weren't pressured to.

Athletics: School spirit is everything. We stand for the entirety of a football game and I love it.

Academics: Being an Aggie is unlike anything else, there is a great career center. Your ring opens so many doors for you. Its hard work, but its worth every second.

Transportation: Best bus system in the nation. Airport is very nearby and small so you get in and out very quickly.

Diversity: I met a lot of people from a lot of backgrounds and enjoyed meeting every single person. This is a southern, conservative school though. That should be kept in mind.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was a Geology major, absolute best choice ever. Classes involve field trips. To graduate you are required to take a 6 weeks mapping course over the summer, you can choose to travel and camp or to stay in a dorm in Montana. I chose to camp. You need a masters degree to get a good oil and gas job though. Geology is NOT rocks for jocks. If you think that you will fail. It is difficult. I took as much math and physics as well as the level of difficulty remained the same had I stayed a Mechanical Engineering major.

Off-Campus Dining: Several places to check out. Late night there is Antonio's Pizza and Fuego's that are musts.

Campus Housing: I think living on campus your freshman year is great. After that, move off campus.

Greek Life: I only met a handful of people in Greek Life at A&M. Being an Aggie is fraternity enough in itself. They have their own tents at Chili Fest, there own tents for tailgating, and aside from that I'd really never know who was in Greek and who wasn't.

Nightlife: I loved the bar scene. Mad hatters has great drinks, dry bean has great shots. There is something for everyone.

Campus Strictness: I enjoy the honor code and how strictly its enforced. The bike cops need to simmer down though.

Weather: It is super windy. Can't talk on the phone walking to class sometimes. But otherwise it's warm like Texas weather usually is.

Local Atmosphere: Aggieland is a very pleasant place to live. Everyone is capable of finding their niche within the University.

Nightlife: It's one of the things College Station is known for. Maybe not as notorious as some schools, but most people here embrace the idea of working hard to play hard.

Greek Life: I'm in the Corps of Cadets, so I don't have much interaction with Greek life.

Academics: Depends on what college you're in. Business, science, and engineering are all extremely difficult. These colleges pride themselves on forcing students to drop out. However, the other colleges are very welcoming and a lot less ruthless when it comes to teaching.

Local Atmosphere: It's a college town, so everything is either focused on the A&M football team or the students.

Guys & Girls: In class, everyone dresses like they just rolled out of bed (with the exception of the cadets who are required to be in uniform). However, off campus, everyone takes nights out as a chance to dress up.

Drug Safety: Every Thursday, people will fill Northgate and all of its bars. It's also extremely easy for minors to get alcohol if they wanted it.

Diversity: For a long time, the people who would come to Texas A&M were from small towns, and as a result, A&M adopted a very conservative, classical Republican culture. However, due to the school's growth many liberal minds have found their way to A&M, and the attitude of the campus seems to be shifting as a result.

Health & Safety: The security in combination with attitude of the student body makes me feel safe, but the doctors' office on campus is awful. I've heard and experienced several horror stories involving the place. Better to go off campus for any medical help.

Off-Campus Dining: There are several places surrounding the campus, but they're usually cheaper quality and more expensive. Places like Rudy's and Whataburger are fantastic because they are used to handling a large number of college students at once. Basically, the faster places are, the happier college students will be with the restaurants.

Scholarships: I am unsure how it works for students outside of the Corps of Cadets, but for me, I have had quite a bit of help from the Corps in finding scholarships and other types of financial aid.

Most students either love or hate A&M, and those who hate it usually transfer out their first year. A&M offers an incredible educational and life experience that most students thoroughly enjoy. If you have a problem with life at A&M, it’s most likely because you haven’t found a niche and you still feel lost in the crowd. At a school this big, it’s not hard to feel as though you’ve vanished. It can be difficult to find people with common interests that you really click with, but if you get involved in student organizations and your classes, you’ll figure it out. It can be intimidating at first, but don’t give up. Going away to college is a big change, and it can take a while to get adjusted and find your place, no matter what kind of person you are.

Aggies have an overwhelming pride in their school, and the age-old traditions can seem annoying to a new student who has never been a part of them. However, the consistency of the traditions that carry over from year to year offers a timeless experience that you can share with any other A&M grad. Although times are constantly changing here, some things will always stay the same, and this gives A&M that special feeling that is hard to find at any other campus. You are not just getting an education here; you’re becoming part of a whole new culture, taking part in its current events, and becoming part of its history. In the long run, A&M isn’t just about going somewhere for four years to learn—it’s like becoming part of a society that will continue to shape and mold your life and the lives of those around you, forever.
