5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I went here as an undergraduate and didn't fully appreciate the educational experience at the time! The people, tradition and spirit are what make A&M special. There's a saying we have that says from the outside looking in you can't understand it, and from the inside looking out you can't explain it! Being an Aggie is a once in a lifetime opportunity and experience you won't regret!

Overall Experience: Great school and atmosphere, but as a minority, the lack of diversity really hurts.

Overall Experience: I love my school. It is a great challenge, but it is worth is.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School is full of tradition, meaning there are a lot of things to do on campus. Being in the Corps of Cadets means one is at all of those plus learning leadership. This is what makes school hard.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique are the traditions that Texas A&M has and has been in place for several years.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I was born in Europe and spent High School there and I can say that being an Aggie is the best I could ever ask for. I have so many memories of my time in College Station, I always show how proud I am to belong to this college and I made friends that will last forever.

American universities has nothing to do with European ones, from Sports or Greek life (non existent or almost non existen) to the feeling of belonging to one or the campus atmosphera... so I truly recommend everyone to apply for one and specially TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY! Gig'em!

Overall Experience: I am extremely satisfied with my enrollment into Texas A&M University so far. One thing I am focusing on before my College experience goes fully underway is surrounding myself with other students that have similar aspirations as I do in the Engineering field. I already am making a bunch of friends and building long lasting friendships that will help me wade my way through the ups and downs of college. I would not choose a different University at this point if I could go back and do it again.

Overall Experience: Texas A&M University is my second home. I have come to love and cherish the traditions and the overall comfortable and family feeling of being in the town. It is small yet so big and safe. The football games and Midnight Yell events are my favorite time of year, because I get to show school spirit and be around those I love. TAMU has the best student body in the nation and we are proud to represent the best University in the world. I would absolutely recommend this school to anybody and can guarantee that they will love it. Texas A&M is very unique compared to other universities, people all over the world have attended and its a very special place. There is no where else in the world I would rather be at school at than Texas A&M University. God has truly blessed me in giving me the chance to be at such an amazing college. I wish I could stay here forever but I know my time is limited and I have to enjoy the time I have right now and do the best I can in school to become the best healthcare professional I can be.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Texas A&M! It is a very student driven university, the surrounding city is great, and the people are amazing. It is academically competitive and you can not afford to fall behind but there is time to just relax. The reason I didn't give it five stars is because I didn't really get involved my first year, partly because I was worried about my time management skills, so my experience is very limited, but I love A&M all the same!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Texas A&M definitely ranks high on school spirit and a general sense of friendliness. I guess it has that "Texan charm" and serves as a great environment to make new friends and begin your professional network. There's a saying at A&M: "Once an Aggie, always an Aggie", and that really shows in the A&M Alumni Network which connects previous and current A&M student all around the world. A&M also has various, truly unique traditions (they really are one-of-a-kind; I honestly thought everyone who attended A&M were all crazy when I first visited and experienced them) and fun chants each with a special hand sign and one for each class which we call a "wildcat". While it may seem pretty strange to others, it establishes a feeling of family for us Aggies, despite all of our different backgrounds and circumstances. Although A&M wasn't my first school of choice, it really grew on me as I met other students, got involved in different extracurricular organizations (they have something for everyone, trust me), and challenged in my classes (took courses for Engineering, which is the biggest college in A&M, and tends to be the most rigorous).

However, there isn't a whole lot to do in College Station, TX, which has a very suburban feel to it, so trying to find fun things to do was a bit difficult, but being from a small town, I was pretty used to it.

The campus is also HUGE, so moving from class to class was a slight struggle. But A&M provides a great bus system that is free for all students and takes you pretty much everywhere you need to go.

These are minor details, but overall, A&M really knows how to invite students in and make them feel welcome, so for me, it truly became a home away from home.

Scholarships: I received the most financial aid at Texas A&M, which made it possible for me to attend. The way the financial aid process began was during admissions I wrote an essay that determined what scholarships I was able to receive. I think that was very easy and helpful.

Campus Housing: I loved being close to my classes and creating a living community in my dorm. My housing was the cheapest they offered and it suited my needs adequately. It was close to the dining hall and off campus restaurants.

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many off campus places that are affordable and in walking distance to the university.

Campus Housing: The building was a great place on campus. It was very close to my classes. The cost wasn't bad considering the location and amenities it provided.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students either love or hate A&M, and those who hate it usually transfer out their first year. A&M offers an incredible educational and life experience that most students thoroughly enjoy. If you have a problem with life at A&M, it’s most likely because you haven’t found a niche and you still feel lost in the crowd. At a school this big, it’s not hard to feel as though you’ve vanished. It can be difficult to find people with common interests that you really click with, but if you get involved in student organizations and your classes, you’ll figure it out. It can be intimidating at first, but don’t give up. Going away to college is a big change, and it can take a while to get adjusted and find your place, no matter what kind of person you are.

Aggies have an overwhelming pride in their school, and the age-old traditions can seem annoying to a new student who has never been a part of them. However, the consistency of the traditions that carry over from year to year offers a timeless experience that you can share with any other A&M grad. Although times are constantly changing here, some things will always stay the same, and this gives A&M that special feeling that is hard to find at any other campus. You are not just getting an education here; you’re becoming part of a whole new culture, taking part in its current events, and becoming part of its history. In the long run, A&M isn’t just about going somewhere for four years to learn—it’s like becoming part of a society that will continue to shape and mold your life and the lives of those around you, forever.
