4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Students on this campus take care of each other, not advantage of each other. Sexual assaults or any other crimes on this campus are rare and tend to shock most students when they do occur because of their rarity. I personally feel very safe at this campus, and I believe that the rest of the student body does as well. There are also campus police patrols on a 24/7 basis.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For marine transportation and engineering majors, the quality of courses is very good. Most of the professors in these majors have lots of experience, and are more than happy to pass it on to the students. Class sizes depend on popularity and whether or not the class is mandatory for the major. The direct electives for the majors are usually very small, with only 10-12 students in them. Class styles vary from traditional lecture rooms, simulators, and real hands on experience.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The networking here is great. Because the fields of study here are applicable to small but lucrative industries, many students will find themselves working alongside each other after graduation. Internships are difficult to come by, and the career center is almost non-existent. However, the value of a degree from this school is high and most students find jobs related to their field of study after graduation.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most of the dorm halls are in good condition, but overpriced. The newer the dorm hall the more expensive it is, regardless of whether or not the rooms themselves are bigger or smaller. The social atmosphere is okay. We have key cards and can only get into the hallway our room resides in. Otherwise, we have to call our friends to let us into a particular hallway which is an inconvenience. The housing process itself is simple, but the school forces us to live in a particular dorm hall depending on our major or age.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Lots of sport intermural and clubs. About half the students at this school participate in some sort of sports. There is something for everyone here, and most of the sports are student-led activities. The sports here with the highest fan base are lacrosse, swimming, and basketball. This school has a huge fan base in football, but the school itself does not have a football team. We have a small gym, but most of the students that use it seem to enjoy it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the students here are friendly, as are most of the faculty. However, the administration itself is unorganized and many students find it difficult to navigate the inner workings of the school. Registering for classes is difficult because of the way the system is set up, and it's almost impossible for students in a particular major to get internships through the school. The cafeteria is expensive and below standards. Students are required to buy a meal plan whether they use it or not. I myself rarely use the meal plan, simply because the food is terrible. On a positive note the education programs here are good, even if the administration here is terrible. Most of the students at this school - or at least the engineering and marine transportation majors - find jobs related to their field of study within six months after graduation.

Campus Housing: Too much money for the small space. Being required to live on campus is a waste of money. Provided furniture is often broken and it takes weeks to get some help fixing it.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We only have two varsity sports

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: If I could start over I would definitely not go to this school. There are benefits to being on the coast for classes, but we don't get enough out of classroom learning for the price. Our school is way overpriced. Especially the dorms and meal plans. Students are required to live on campus and require to eat in the cafeteria until you are 21 or within one year of graduating and it is a waste of money. I recently moved off campus and I spend less on rent and utilities for my two bedroom house than I did living in the cheapest dorm on campus and sharing a tiny bathroom with four girls. Also, since I no longer eat in the cafeteria I have saved a ton of money and feel healthier. The school is too small for students to be able to choose their teachers, and a lot of the teachers are not good at teaching. They are only there for research. It is disappointing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas A&M Galveston is a small school located on an island. The school focus its programs on all sorts of marine studies, being in the location where its in the job opportunities and natural landscape to study these things are surreal. the small class sizes but being part of one of the states largest school give me the feeling of attending a large state insitute with the small campus feel

Academics: The academics on campus are mostly centered around marine sciences and engineering. The courses are taught by high ranking and knowledgeable professors. Depending on how many hours a student takes, the workload differs. For me personally, I spent several hours a week completing homework and studying in the library and in m room.

Overall Experience: The professors are extremely knowledgeable about the course they teach and are helpful and approachable when students need extra help. Most of the courses I've taken are well-taught and challenging, with a few exceptions. The sizes of most of my classes are relatively small due to the size of our campus.

Overall Experience: Internships are fairly abundant. Many of the professors are involved in research or are conducting their own personal researches, and many of them offer opportunities to students. I have never visited the career center, but many of my peers and friends have, and they have said it is a useful tool when job searching.

Campus Housing: I have no complaints about housing. I live in on of the newer dorms, Atlantic Hall. The suites are spacious, with two bedrooms that house two girls each, a bathroom, two sinks, and a common area with a table and shelves. The noise level has never gotten out of control, and the halls and communal bathrooms outside our room are always kept clean. We have study areas on each floor as well as at the end of each hall, and they are great for group study sessions or individual studying.

Athletics: At Texas A&M Galveston, we only have intramurals and club sports due to the size of our campus. However, most of the student body travels to College Station to attend the football games and other varsity sporting events. Our club sports are fantastic at the Galveston campus. There is huge involvement among the students and the gym and sporting fields are awesome. Although I did not participate in any intramural sports this year, I use the gym almost daily and I don not have any complaints. There are plenty of exercise machines and equipment for the students to use, even when the gym is relatively busy.

Overall Experience: It has been my dream since the age of eight to attend Texas A&M. Texas A&M at Galveston was one of the first and only schools that I applied to. I have always been interested in marine sciences, and A&M Galveston is abundant in marine science majors. The thing that makes this university stand out is it's traditions. Like A&M College Station, our school participates in all of the Aggie traditions such as the Aggie Ring, Midnight Yell Practice, and Silver Taps. However, we do all these things on own little island, with the beach less than ten minutes away. The main reason I fell in love with this campus is it's size. With under three thousand students, it's fairly easy to get to know your peers and professors. I absolutely love being an "Aggie by the Sea", and if I had to go through the entire process again, I would still choose A&M.
