Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi Reviews

Would like to see some fees decrease, or more financial aid for unemployed senior students. Some who are in education are basically working a full time job while having to study for certification exams and quit their jobs. Health is also taking a toll and not having health insurance doesn't help. Everything about this school is great! Even cheaper than others but some things are played out more than it should be, especially residents of the coastal bend and surrounding areas.

I love School at TAMUCC! I do have a few concerns though. I sometimes wish the professors could speak better english for the students to understand. And student living is very expensive compared to other universities and I've only attended school here for a year and a half and the prices everywhere have increased by at least 20 percent.
On the bright side, the campus is a beautiful here! I could not have asked for a more inviting place to be. The weather is nice and the garage parking is super helpful when it comes to the rainy days or when the university holds large events. I have made friendships and memories that will last forever and I cannot see myself earning my degree anywhere else.
Honestly, it has so much diversity in itself! The organizers want to welcome you with a lot of positive spirit so you can have fun, I used to be timid, scared of people but this experience has helped me overcome that. They help you with anything you'd like. If struggling with school, they have programs I was too scared to go but when I did my confusion was cleared up and i made some great friends.
