Party Scene: There are quite a few parties always going on on the weekends.

Off-Campus Dining: Fudge is always a must when you come into town. Convenience is not great but in some ways cost is a lot better.

Administration: Overall campus strictness isn't bad. As long as you follow rules you are good to go.

Campus Food: It is great as far as convenience is concerned. Many things can be overpriced but the food is always great.

Scholarships: When I received scholarships and communicated with them frequently they were always kind and very helpful in all circumstances they were presented with.

Campus Food: Not the best. But then again it's school food. Sibisa is probably your best bet.

Off-Campus Housing: I've stayed in off-campus apartments from my first semester onward. I have switched from close to campus to further out as the years went on. Landlords are accommodative to the student schedule and willing to sign independent 9 month leases for multiple bedroom apartments. This is a positive aspect of the town being geared toward the college, almost all options thinkable are available one way or another. They are also constantly building new apartments and replacing old apartment complexes as well. The rent is quite inexpensive if you are used to pricing from any metropolitan city in the state. Just make sure you ensure your are on the bus route to campus if you don't have seniority to get good on-campus parking.

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.

Athletics: Texas A&M takes all athletics extremely seriously; not as seriously as the academics, but it is a close balance. The athletics help to keep the alumni engaged and donating to the academic programs on campus giving Texas A&M one of the largest university endowments in the world.

Party Scene: The parties don't seem to go out of bounds and the police are either University Police or College Station PD Officers, so they have experience in how to break up any noisy parties if they arise. However, more people are going to Texas A&M for academic reasons and the people who choose to party tend to be the Blinn folks that didn't make it into the University.

Off-Campus Dining: Due to the diversity of the student body, there is quite the variety of ethnic foods and interesting places to eat around town, you just have to be adventurous enough to give the places a try. Don't expect too many student discounts however, as it is a college town where everyone is a student.

The whole town knows that if not for the university there wouldn't be a town and students are treated great, with all of the off-campus dining seem to cater to the needs of the studying student clientele.

Administration: The administration of the University is doing what they are employed to do; they make sure that the students are taken care of well and will address any issues without a hassle. This place just feels like home, you truly don't want to leave the place.

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.

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.
