4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: My friend was sexually assaulted a few weeks ago, unfortunately. It was not on campus, but he had been educated in the risks of drinking with strangers but he did that anyway. He has been going to counseling since and they are helping him through it.

Overall Experience: Getting involved is what I have to stress the most. Find something you're passionate about and chase it. I love it here.

Overall Experience: A representative from the University of Texas (our nemesis) literally told me that Texas A&M is the best school in terms of opportunities after graduation. I believe it. The aggie network is real, and if you want to go to grad school, A&M can get you there. That's why I chose this school .

Campus Housing: I live in atypical dorms. They are brand new, but they are on West Campus, so it's a 20 minute walk to any of my classes from there. They are really nice, apartment style, but in my opinion they are way too expensive for their size.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a part of the greek life, so I don't know much about it. I do know that the sororities tend to be better respected on campus than the fraternities do.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Texas A&M's football team honestly isn't even that good, but EVERYONE goes to EVERY game. It's awesome. Basketball and baseball, too. Lots of people are obsessed with the sports here, but even so, it's not like people will shun you for skipping a game.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is school is far from its stereotype. Getting involved is of the utmost importance. Texas A&M has a reputation for being pretty conservative. I am bisexual, and I have not encountered bias once so far in my experience at A&M. Tolerance is pushed heavily here, and the 1000+ organizations at the University allow anyone to find their niche. My niche is in an international organization, even though I am not an international student, I found that this environment was perfect for my passions and goals for the future.

Campus Housing: HAAS is a dorm with great location with a good price.

Athletics: Texas A&M has rose to the top in football, baseball and soccer. We are known for being a school with high athletic achievement. Thousands of students charge to Kyle Field every football game, and the school spirit and support is through the roof. The Aggie football team has no problem rising to the rising in the ranks as the years continue.I had a chance to explore their practice field and training facility and I must say that it is top of the line. There is no overshadowing sports at A&M, with the banners and constant reminders from students, athletics never go unnoticed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's hard for everyone to transition to college but at Texas A&M University it's like one big family. I love the traditions and friendly that surrounds you, it really makes us unique by how you are really apart of this university for life. I'd choose this school over any school because of the appreciation and helpfulness that lies here.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Although there have been stories of people being sexually assaulted on campus, it usually follows the story that the victim had been abusing alcohol or drugs. While it has not happened to anyone that I know of, I would not deny that it happens.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I only lived on campus for a year so my opinion may not be backed by much experience. However, when I lived on campus it was not bad. I enjoyed it, but I like having my own room in my apartment better. There are pros and cons to sharing a room with someone and it is just better when you live with them, but not sharing a room.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life at Texas A&M is present, but not emphasized as much as other universities. People who are in the Greek life think that they are a defining staple to the university and the culture on and off campus. However, they actually have a pretty low impact on the campus as a whole when compared to the rest of the student body. I would also like to point out that I never have been in, or wanted to be a part of the Greek life so my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Texas A&M University is the home of the 12th man (which is every student). We as the student body stand by, and with our team.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally feel safe on campus. I have heard stories from friends and roommates about instances where some of the construction workers have cat called them while they walked to class or car. Some of the members of the corps have said some lewd and obnoxious comments to me personally. But nothing particularly traumatizing has happened to me.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Texas A&M offers only the best for its students. From the alumni network, finding internships, study sessions, and financial aid. I've felt nothing but love from the faculty and students. I've been in other states wearing an Aggie t-shirt and someone will come up to me and tell me they were Aggies too and I've made many friends this way.

Athletics: From the outside looking in you can't understand it, and from the inside looking out you can't explain it.

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.
