I have attended TAMU-CC for three years now and I have had the greatest college experience. With the beach right across the street, TAMUCC has a great atmosphere, and the staff is always ready to help. The buildings are easy to locate and the walk from place to place is always bright and sunny. I always feel safe walking to my car at night! The website is easy to navigate and the teachers always stay on top of their stuff! The only thing I would change about my school is the fact that we don't have a football team! Everyone wants to have those big college football games to go to, and I think if TAMU-CC had a football team, that would be the icing on the cake!
Review Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi
Attending TAMUCC has been a unique experience full of diverse people and opportunities. There are several things that make this university different from most. First and foremost, the campus is located on its' own island and has beautiful, relaxing scenery all over the campus. The over-all attitude of students and professors is a friendly, relaxed state that is always inviting of other students. Even though this is a smaller university, I admire how involved the on-campus organizations get. They are always encouraging people to join and help out their community and attract students with interesting events, most of which are free or low cost! One of my favorite experiences at TAMUCC was an event called Paws on The Island sponsored by the counselling center. During this event, you get to relax, make stress balls, draw, and best of all pet and play with the nice dogs! It is such a cute, relaxing event, I wish to go every semester before finals.
I absolutely loved attending Texas A&M at Corpus Christi! It was a dream come true getting accepted there, the people there are so friendly and helpful especially the professors. The environment was so welcoming and the diversity was out of this world! The experience was a great one for me especially since I never traveled out to the valley or more specific Brownsville Texas. So getting a taste of whats out there really changed my perspective of everything and I absolutely loved it!
