Campus is beautiful, professors are awesome! Online environment is simple, but you're still able to get the same engagement similar to if you were in a classroom. College services (helpdesk, financial aid, security, events, sports, etc.,) are all outstanding. TAMUC also likes to get the student body involved in numerous events and also keep students in the loop of campus news. Is there inclement weather before an event? TAMUC will be sure to let you know to save you the trouble and time, they're also doing it for your safety as well. So, safety is a good priority at TAMUC. Love the college!

One thing that I liked about Texas A&M-Commerce is that the campus was very diverse and I also liked how the food tasted when I visited this campus back in February 2018. When I visited this campus for the first time, I was amazed that a big building like this was smack dab in the middle of a small city and how close everything was, so getting to class was so easy that you didn't need to worry about sleeping late and realize you only have 5-10 minutes left before your next class. I also liked how the classes were medium sized and you did not have to yell at the professor every time you miss something important. Overall, I liked how this campus looked both inside and out and I hope to attend this college in the fall of 2019. I can't wait to be a Future Lion!
Texas A&M University-Commerce has several benefits, it is located in a small town in East Texas and its main attraction, in my opinion, is a true “home away from home”. In choosing schools, I wanted to attend a school where I felt accepted, had smaller class sizes, more intimate with being able to connect with teachers, and the chance to build a relationship with students and the community. I thrive in a collaborative environment, and I like the opportunity to engage with other students when completing assignments and projects. I found that at Commerce, it is a very diverse university with many opportunities in my field of study, which is Athletic Training. Therefore, I have been open up to new things such as organizations, student events, and outside resources that can help to achieve in the classroom.
