3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's great for maybe a year then you'll want to move to an apartment.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Never been a part of it so I can't really say. That speaks to how small it matters.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Competing in the SEC is so fun to watch!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Texas A&M is definitively a challenging school academically. It aspires to be the best at everything they do. However, it will give you back whatever you put into it. Put the effort and you will receive the grade.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A majority of my classes are huge, especially the math and science courses. The professors are great and help you understand as much as they can, and also provide other help resources available on campus. Every class I have taken is pretty challenging due to the amount of information we are expected to know for the exams, but I assume that's how it is at every university. It may be challenging to get an A in every course, but it is definitely possible if you study efficiently.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Advisors and professors always update us on the next career fair and encourage students to attend them. The office of professional school advising also a great place to visit if you need any help trying to figure out what your next step should be. I am a Community Health major simultaneously completing nursing prerequisites and both my advisors and the office of professional school advising have been very useful. At a meeting I found out about research opportunities with professors at A&M and I contacted each professor whose contact info was available. I was able to participate on a research project for a semester and my advisor was helpful in making it happen as well.

Health & Safety: If an assault or any other major event occurred on campus, every student is alerted through email or text with a full summary of the event.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Due to financial reasons, I chose one of the cheaper options for the dorms offered. However, when I first walked into my dorm room, it was a lot bigger than I expected. There was 2 beds, 2 desks, a sink with a mirror and shelves on the side. The restroom we had was connected to another room with two other girls who lived there. For 4 girls sharing one bathroom, it wasn't too bad. The janitors cam every week on Thursdays to clean the bathroom only. On the first floor there was 3 laundry rooms and a variety of study lounges with TVs, couches, long desk and a vending machine. It was very convenient to live on campus because of the proximity to everything on campus. About 3/4ths of the time, I woke up about 10 minutes before class and always made it on time.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: From my perspective, I wouldn't say Greek life is a major thing at A&M. However, I have seen many sororities and fraternities that promote volunteer work and fundraisers.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: If you have ever been to a midnight yell or a football game at Texas A&M University, you know how intense the environment can be. It is so full of spirit and the stadium amplifies the chants and yells of all the fans. The night before every major football game, many students meet up at Kyle Field and sing schools songs along with the yell leaders. At every football game, every Aggie stands throughout the whole game to support the football players. The experience is amazing!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a fun yet challenging environment. Professors introduce you to the variety of options for help around campus to ensure that you find some type of help. There are thousands of organizations to join and many friendly people to meet. Some of my closest friends are those who I met at this wonderful university. I would definitely do my freshman year all over again!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors I have had so far love teaching.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus has a ton to offer. Campus workers help.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are emergency buttons all around campus

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The older dorms on campus aren't super clean

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek people treat others normal

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Ton of tradition in football

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love A&M because everyone is willing to help you

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish a wider variety of courses were offered during the summer. Professors are generally nice, but often the foreign professors are extremely difficult to understand.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Aggie Network works very hard to ensure that every student has a job after graduation. I feel very confident that I will find a job related to my field thanks to the opportunities that I have.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I actually feel like I can walk around at night without feeling like I need to have someone with me. The blue lighted phones make me feel reassured that if something happens I can call someone for help.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Hullabaloo, the newest (and most expensive) dorm because my roommate wanted to. It was a great experience, and if dorm life was for me, this would have been incredible.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know anyone in Greek life, so I'm not sure what the do specifically, but I see them around campus all the time and they're generally pretty friendly and wild.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: There's so much school spirit. Football days you can feel the energy on campus; it's almost electric! I've never actually been to a football game, but people are so welcoming that you don't have to be big into sports to belong.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love A&M for its traditions and the people I've met here. Academically it's been challenging, because the professors are tenured and it seems like they don't care whether or not you learn anything in their classes. If I could do it all over again, I might choose to attend a smaller school where it's not so easy to get lost in the crowd.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
