4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: From what I have seen and visited, off-campus housing for Texas A&M University seems to be good.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is pretty good, the only thing is that it can be expensive at times.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration is pretty good. The only thing that I have to say about it is that Texas A&M administration sometimes does not benefit the minorities on campus. An example of this is the advance to get open carry on campus. This does nothing but profile against students of color (not only African American, but any race of color), and specifically males of color.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I don't think that enough scholarships are given to the students who truly need it.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties are pretty nice, but you see the same crowd at almost every party.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The campus food is okay. Nothing too great, nothing too bad. It's all very basic. The dining halls have decent food, but the quality of food could be a lot better.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Proximity to classes is decent. Cleanliness is decent. The facilities management needs to improve. My freshman year, there were ants in my room for months. My sophomore year, there was a very bad case of mold in my room. The facilities department at A&M needs some work with their timeliness and how they keep up the rooms during the summer months.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We are known for our football, and that's why the majority of the students come to this school.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options, but they're all very pricy unless you have several roommates.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are some good off campus food, but it's pricy for a college kid to buy anything healthy and cheap.

3 College Junior

Administration: The strictest thing at the school is parking violations (the cops are 100% on top of things, even if you're 30 seconds late you WILL get ticketed)

3 College Junior

Scholarships: After much arguing and pushing I did finally receive my aid.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The options in the MSC are nice, but I'd like to have more like that around campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice, but small. They do give you good amenities though.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: If you rush as a female sophomore you can pretty much count out any of the good houses. If one person says something bad about you, you are blackballed

4 College Junior

Athletics: Football is life. end of story.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus. The prices are pretty high but its nice to have your own place and practically every house here is "rentable"

3 College Junior

Administration: They arent too strict unless you are caught drunk on campus and then you are SOL

3 College Junior

Scholarships: If your parents make any money at all, regardless of whether or not they are willing to help you out with college, then you need to apply for outside scholarships, because the school wont give you any.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: My freshman year it was great because the plans were all dining dollars, but now with the meals it makes it hard for students to use up their meals and to differentiate between what each student eats as a meal

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek system is very social. It takes a lot to actually get accepted into a sorority and the dues are ridiculous. The houses that the sorority girls live in are bigger than the house that I grew up in, and really lavish.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am in an on-campus housing right now. Next semester I will be living in an apartment. The process of getting accepted was fairly easy, but the cost of the apartment is pretty high.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I am not very educated on all of the campus policies here at Texas A&M.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Getting a scholarship from A&M is difficult to come by. I have applied for everything I am applicable for, and I still haven't received any aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is okay. The meal plans are horrendous and extremely expensive, and the food the is available for it is not ideal.

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.
