Texas A&M University - Galveston Reviews
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.
I transferred from the University of New Orleans and it was a huge culture shock for me. Coming from somewhere that has all races, religions and backgrounds to a school that is predominantly white, shook me a bit. Personally, I'm not a fan of the way that the professors teach. Every one of my teachers reads directly from the powerpoint each class and puts them online, so there is no reason to go to class. The only times I go to class are to attend my labs. The TA's who teach the labs do a better job than the actual professors here. I recommend going to a community college to get your intro courses done and then transfer here if you would like to pursue a career in marine sciences/maritime majors. Don't waste your time coming here for all 4 years of school.
Texas A&M Galveston was a quiet college for the most part, however the campus was too small to escape the occasional absurd partying. The housing is either quite old or new, but cheap. The teachers are probably fine as long as you aren't an engineering major, as most of the math and science teachers are new and have a few issues. The campus is relatively calm and comfortable, and while Galveston is a scary place, it is still fun to live there.
