Texas A&M offers a variety of degrees, classes, programs, and professors. Every student will have that one class they love, as well as one that “could have done better." The same goes for the professors—they range from being down-to-earth to having thick accents to being almost impossible to deal with. However, the one thing they all have in common is that they are all qualified in their fields and are very knowledgeable about their subjects. Of course, college is all about choices, and the decisions you make will determine the grades you'll earn. The main key to passing a class is actually going to class. Beyond that, participate in class and go talk to your professors during their office hours—a little effort can go a long way. One thing to remember is that some class sizes here have more than a 100 students, so find a buddy in a class to exchange notes with and bounce questions off of. However, professors are always willing to help those who try.
There are also many research opportunities at A&M that you can get involved with in your department. You can go to your adviser, and they can direct you to some opportunities. Some professors are even willing to take students under their wings and give them letters of recommendation. Just remember, when it comes to grades, you can either hang out with your friends or go to class—the choice is yours.
