Attending TAMUCC has been a unique experience full of diverse people and opportunities. There are several things that make this university different from most. First and foremost, the campus is located on its' own island and has beautiful, relaxing scenery all over the campus. The over-all attitude of students and professors is a friendly, relaxed state that is always inviting of other students. Even though this is a smaller university, I admire how involved the on-campus organizations get. They are always encouraging people to join and help out their community and attract students with interesting events, most of which are free or low cost! One of my favorite experiences at TAMUCC was an event called Paws on The Island sponsored by the counselling center. During this event, you get to relax, make stress balls, draw, and best of all pet and play with the nice dogs! It is such a cute, relaxing event, I wish to go every semester before finals.

I absolutely loved attending Texas A&M at Corpus Christi! It was a dream come true getting accepted there, the people there are so friendly and helpful especially the professors. The environment was so welcoming and the diversity was out of this world! The experience was a great one for me especially since I never traveled out to the valley or more specific Brownsville Texas. So getting a taste of whats out there really changed my perspective of everything and I absolutely loved it!

Living on campus has its' ups and downs. I have observed every type of on campus housing offered. One of the worst things about the dorms and apartments on campus is the noise. The walls are fairly thin and can easily be penetrated by noise from neighbors, people in the halls and outside, and people even just walking on the floor above you. The first floor in most every building has problems with roaches and other insects such as scorpions! I feel as if it is fairly expensive because the water, garbage, electricity, cable and internet are all included in the rent price. This is convenient, but a bit over priced. The housing is fairly private, even the shared room. All housing has personal bathrooms. I lived in the shared room because it was the cheapest, and the bathroom/sink area separated my side of the room from my roommates' and there was a walkway to get to each other's side. Every apartment has a full kitchen with microwave, oven, stove and fridge/freezer. Every dorm residence was provided with a mini-fridge and microwave inside the room. Also, every dorm room and apartment had its' own air-conditioning unit and each individual is provided with a desk, chair, bed and their own closet and dresser. There are community washers and dryers that residents can use any time, and that is also included in the cost of rent. Additionally, there are community kitchens in the dorm halls that have an oven, microwave, stove and fridge/freezer. To me, the best housing option would be the shared restroom residence suite. You get your own room and sink with a mirror and share a toilet and shower with a one person who has a room adjoined to yours by the restroom. Over-all, it is fairly convenient to live on campus because you can literally wake up 15 minutes before class and still have time to walk to your class.
