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.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely love the Texas A&M campus. I would not change a thing about it except redoing the sidewalks.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's very expensive, but you get what you pay for. Most apartments and off campus dorm style apartments have tons of great amenities. The houses and apartments aren't too expensive, especially if you live with a lot of people. The parking is manageable, but it's a small town layout so there's a lot of traffic. College Station is very safe from what I have experienced so far.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love having the food options in a college town. There is always something new to try. Especially living so close to Bryan.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: A&M focuses on the main core values of being an Aggie. Those are important to follow. Everyone is respected as a human.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have a need, so I received some scholarships based on that. It's very difficult to receive any scholarships through A&M that aren't from the government. I have had to reapply every year with very little return.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties I have attended have been safe and fun

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's very expensive, and most of the time people are forced to buy a very expensive meal plan and never use it all. The food is not worth the price. Sometimes in Sbisa it is unknown what they are serving even when it's on your plate.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are many different ones. THere are some who have a "party" reputation and some who are based more on degrees or studies. Chi Phi is more of a "science-based" frat that doesn't have as dramatic of a pledging routine and is a smaller chapter. They do not require you to live in their frat house and they encourage your studies as well as community service.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are hundreds of nice apartments, and also some houses for rent or duplexes. THe apartments are all nice and you can share leases by the bedroom. THe buses run from most of them or close by. Some of them require too much in the way of guarantor's or deposits, but most are average to very nice.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: College Station/Bryan area has an enormous amount of dining options of every kind from fancy, to casual dining, to fast food...just about everything you could want, smoothie bars, coffee shops etc.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Primarily there are more problems with getting tickets and being towed from off-campus apartments due to limited parking than there are on-campus.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Primarily it was a hassle figuring out which buildings to go to on and off campus to submit last minute signatures/paperwork when the campus is so large and as a new student, unfamiliar with the buildings. It would also be really nice if there were more financial aid options for off-campus housing/apartments since there are SO many students having to live off campus due to overcrowding.

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus

5 College Freshman

Administration: Everyone is great and helpful

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: This financial aid was absolutely necessary and it helped tremendously

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have a blast all the time

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I eat there often and it satisfies every time

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.
