Texas A&M International University makes you feel at home with the student life that is present, the countless of opportunities that one can encounter in academics, the respected faculty and professors who give their all to make a difference in your life and are there when you need it, and the simple fact that there is no place better where students from all over the world join together with the same objectives of effort and achievement.

Review Texas A&M International University
TAMIU is a great school overall. Since my plan had always been to study finance and originally from Laredo, it made sense to attend TAMIU. But honestly there are a couple of flaws which can be addressed thus converting TAMIU into a more outstanding university. Exempting final exams in my opinion is a must, providing an incentive towards students to try harder during the semester. Nonetheless, there are a couple of instructors who don't really teach anything, they simply stand in front of the class, talk about current events, and expect for the student to do good on exams! Most students learn by observing the instructor not reading the book word for word. These instructors teach nothing prior to an exam and students end up lost and panic thus resulting in miss-preparation and failure. In order to minimize this in my opinion instructors who do this must be terminated. Why would anyone want an instructor who doesn't really explain what is going on in every chapter?
Texas A&M International University offers a lot of enriching factors besides being an outstanding institution. The professors are easy to approach, there are FAFSA help sessions hosted by the Office of Career Services, and the University is known for its people from other cultures. I love the fact that it is an International University because you get to meet a variety of people you never thought you would meet. I've met people from the Netherlands, Germany, London, even Australia! TAMIU also hosts an opportunity for first-year students to study abroad for free, if they desire to do so, after being selected from a panel who judged their Reading the Globe essay. The Office of Student Affairs also hosts regular study abroad information sessions to inform its students on where upcoming study abroad trips will be hosted. Furthermore, TAMIU has a University class and encourages a weekly visit with mentors, upperclassmen of TAMIU, who have great advice to offer. It is a very welcoming transition to college. Most freshmen are nervous, don't receive support from their families, or are struggling with dealing with the fact that their friends have gone to other Universities. If a student were to require further comfort, TAMIU also offers the office of Counseling Services, for more one-to-one talking. All in all, TAMIU helps a student from start up until the walk across the graduation stage with their warm, friendly, and inviting environment.
