Your experience will likely depend on your major. I majored in marine biology, and my professors were extremely knowledgeable, active in their field, helpful to students, but not giving away credits (you had to earn your grades). The campus is small, so the students get to know each other pretty well and class sizes are moderate. This also means that the course availability can be fairly limited, however, and often there is only one time available for some courses, and many of your upper tier courses are only offered in a single semester per year.

Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) is a tremendous establishment that offers the best of many worlds. First of all it is 100% associated with Texas A&M University College Station (TAMU) where students receive the same education, Aggie ring, diploma, and much more. The one thing that sets TAMUG apart is its location in Galveston which caters to those who love the ocean and all it has to offer. I strictly attended TAMUG as it offered a degree in Maritime Systems Engineering (now known as Ocean Engineering) which provided me with an amazing education and set me up for a career that I love working as a marine engineering in the offshore oil & gas industry. Another advantage of the school is you still obtain the same level of education, but at a fraction of the cost from main campus which for me was a factor. Overall a great university that offers so much to a diversified world of potential students.
In all, this college has a very developed campus. For a sister college it shows that it holds up to the Aggie spirit while retaining its own identity. I enjoy the spirit the school shows in its special area near the sea while having its Maritime Academy. The Academy and normal college are very well balanced with no friction between the two. I find that this harmony and cooperation between the two different academic processes can coexist easily at this establishment. If you are going to this campus for a normal college degree, or looking to get their USCG license, you will find a strong foundation for your investments.
