I love Texas A&M because there are so many friendly people! The Aggie Family is truly a family like no other. All of the traditions that we partake in as students really brings us together, not only with the current students but with students from the past. There are endless traditions at Texas A&M and each one is special to the university. I can truly say that Texas A&M is the best university and there's something extremely special about the way students, both current and former, are able to connect with one another. The Aggie Ring is probably my favorite tradition because it is a ring that all former students will continue to wear for the rest of their lives. The Aggie spirit is not something that encompasses just the Texas A&M campus, but it is a spirit that each and every student carries with him/herself for the rest of his/her life. The Aggie ring is just one way that spirit is displayed and there's something incredible about being anywhere and the world and seeing another person with an Aggie ring on and being able to strike up a conversation with them. Texas A&M University is a place unlike any other.

I just love Texas A&M University! The professors are great and a lot of them come from all over the world. There are TONS of organizations to join and if you don't find one that fits you, you can actually start up your own! There's a lot of different courses that are offered for over 100 majors. Depending on your professor, the class style is going to be different. Each one of my professors that I had this past semester had a different style of teaching. As a communication major, however, technology was used frequently for notes, examples, etc. 300 people will be the largest class that you will have. Typically math classes will be around 100 students and most introductory courses/general courses will be 100-300 people. Once you get into your classes that are major-specific, that class size will significantly decrease.

As an out-of-state, Texas A&M is a very interesting place to adjust. My freshman and sophomore year I was obsessed with the university and all the traditions. Now in my senior year, I find the campus culture to be bit ridiculous. Maybe I've just "been there done that" but I'm ready to move on to bigger things. The Texas-centric ideals are too narrow minded for my liking. But as for academics, I am beyond impressed by the opportunities Mays Business School has given me. I am a finance major and love it. The finance curriculum is challenging and respected. I enjoy the high-caliber, competitive environment the finance department brings. I know Mays has given me the tools necessary to succeed in the finance world. Thanks and gig em!
