Campus Housing: The older reviews are going to be reflecting the old style dormitories which were, yes, quite bad. They are being quickly replaced with brand new apartment-styled on-campus housing to augment the off-campus apartments that accommodate the majority of the students in both College Station and in Bryan. Almost all of the off-campus housing is conveniently located on the University Bus Routes which deliver you very close to where you need to be on-campus. It all works out great really.

Scholarships: I received scholarships and grants without even having to apply for them. The financial aid office went out of their way to tell me that I've received a scholarship and that I just needed to fill out the application for it to make sure all of the bases were covered, and no I am not related to any famous alumni as it would sound from this kind of going above and beyond to make sure that the financial aid process works for all of the students at such a large school. I cannot say enough good things about them.

Administration: The school's policies are not a problem in this school.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Turn in papers needed for financial aid early because it takes long to be reviewed and the financial aid offers to be given to the students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The same type of good is served in almost every cafeteria in campus, mostly not healthy options such as fast food.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus restaurants are great. No discounts for students, but food is usually pretty cheap as it is. TexMex is a favorite around here.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Pretty dependent on a person's tastes.

5 College Senior

Majors: Getting in is pretty easy with good academics, though transferring some more advanced classes is a chore.

3 College Senior

Majors: A lot of interesting and fun stuff to learn. 75% of profs seem to be on the path of beating all of the fun out of it. Most homework is just gruntwork that they make you do that has literally nothing to do with the tough parts of the lectures, but takes forever to complete. Most profs outside of math and engineering are great, though.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Sadly, most financial aid is available to students who are already doing extremely well, or are foreigners.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Gals are great if you just talk to them and treat them with respect.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: It's good food, a lot of times, but in some places, it's reheated instead of cooked on the spot.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: An Aggie does not lie, cheat or steal, or tolerate those who do. enough said.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My experience with the financial aid process was very smooth. I was given the financial aid I needed and I am grateful that it as enabled me to succeed in college.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There isn't much of a variety of food on campus. there's no place that serves unique fresh food, besides chef thai and sometimes sbisa, that would keep people happy and healthy. the best way to get the most out of your meal plan is to use your meal plans for sbisa during lunch and dinner, and then use your dining dollars for everything else.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Dunn hall on the south side of Texas A&M University for my freshman and sophomore years and I must say it was very convenient having most of my classes within 1-5 minutes from my door. However, Dunn is pretty much a big concrete panopticon in my opinion.

Athletics: Football is obviously where most of the spirit is at, but other sports are fun to go to as well.

Off-Campus Housing: Some places are great! If you are referring to off-campus housing that the school recommends/provides though, those are overpriced and horrible

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the older dorms are pretty rough, but its fine.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you are into that scene, you can find plenty of options.

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.
