Texas A&M International University offers a lot of enriching factors besides being an outstanding institution. The professors are easy to approach, there are FAFSA help sessions hosted by the Office of Career Services, and the University is known for its people from other cultures. I love the fact that it is an International University because you get to meet a variety of people you never thought you would meet. I've met people from the Netherlands, Germany, London, even Australia! TAMIU also hosts an opportunity for first-year students to study abroad for free, if they desire to do so, after being selected from a panel who judged their Reading the Globe essay. The Office of Student Affairs also hosts regular study abroad information sessions to inform its students on where upcoming study abroad trips will be hosted. Furthermore, TAMIU has a University class and encourages a weekly visit with mentors, upperclassmen of TAMIU, who have great advice to offer. It is a very welcoming transition to college. Most freshmen are nervous, don't receive support from their families, or are struggling with dealing with the fact that their friends have gone to other Universities. If a student were to require further comfort, TAMIU also offers the office of Counseling Services, for more one-to-one talking. All in all, TAMIU helps a student from start up until the walk across the graduation stage with their warm, friendly, and inviting environment.

I love my university! Not only because of the great campus, but in general my professors, classes and benefits are great.

I enjoy going to class and love what I am studying for. Our university is great in helping out as well if you are stuck in a class or confused. They also provide great benefits such as the computers and out library, I know all the universities have them, but overall I am very satisfied in my choice. I look forward in graduating and being proud of saying that I will be a future dustdevil graduate!&lt;3

The only thing I would have to mention is tuition:( I know I'm not the only one who's sad about paying so much. The only thing that makes me sad it's that I can only work so much to keep up with good grades, but I also need the money to pay for my school.

Any amount of scholarship would be so appreciate it.

Texas A&M International University is a wonderful, diverse campus that utilizes the different backgrounds of its students and professors to provide an overall sufficient learning environment. From the time I have spent in TAMIU, I have met an abundance of interesting people and enjoyed the numerous events that take place in this university!
