4 College Sophomore

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.

Transportation: I drive or walk everywhere, because I usually don't have time to wait for a bus. The people in College Station generally don't know how to drive if you ask anyone, but I think the chaos is caused by the combination of several different driving styles; people from the DFW and Houston areas are used to having to force their way into traffic while people from small towns are used to having an open road. Driving in College Station is something everyone has to get used to, but in the end, I don't think it's that bad.

Campus Housing: I live in the Corps dorms, so there have been a lot of changes lately. I live in one of the newly redone dorms, so I don't have much experience or knowledge involving most of the dorms on the Quad. However, I have heard that the ventilation system, showers, restrooms, and laundry room are all incredibly better than the old dorms. One of the down sides has been caused by a growing Corps and a need to fit in more rooms in every dorm: The living space is tiny, and the open area is only about four feet across. Not a big deal as an underclassmen, but juniors and seniors are definitely cramped.

Campus Housing: It's descent. It's close to all of my classes so I don't have to wake up as early, but the space isn't that great.

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.
