Academics: Our orientation class, given during the first and second semester of attending the school, offers a very wide range of opportunities available on campus. We were taught how to network and use various learning tools on the campus.

Academics: In my field of civil engineering I feel as though the professors could be more concerned with the students achievements. It almost seems as though they don't really care about us, with a exception of a few. Registration has gotten better but not many classes are offered for both semesters so if you need it to graduate you will have to wait. The workload I feel is a little too much. Some of the professors give work that's the only class we have. Sometimes it can be overwhelming.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Academics at A&M is excellent. Students who enjoy a challenge should join the Honors Program, as it's one of the best programs on campus. The professors are very intelligent, and they expect the best out of each and every one of their students. However, the honors courses are not easy; they require a lot of hard work, but students who are diligent and motivated can succeed in these types of classes. One of the things students love about A&M is that although the University has rigorous classes, the professors equip students with the necessary skills to do well. All students really have to do to succeed is follow the teachers' instructions and work hard.

The classes that are not honors are a little different. Students are less motivated and not used to hard work. The best advice for students who are taking "regular" classes at A&M is to ignore the foolish students, and to continue to strive for excellence because teachers pay attention to the students who want to learn. The students who demonstrate that they are serious about their education are the ones who are rewarded. Another piece of advice is to get really close to the administration in your department. You'll be amazed at how far it will get you by simply being polite and getting to know the people who work in your department.
