I love being an Aggie! The A&M community is the most inclusive I've seen and as an out-of-state student has made me truly feel at home. There are countless clubs and organizations to be a part of and the research and academic opportunities here are outstanding. Whatever your interests, you will find something here to match. For engineers, the Zachry Engineering building is state-of-the-art and a great place to hang out and do homework outside of class. I can also highly recommend the University Honors program. Gig 'em!

I love Texas A&M University. I feel like I am a part of a FAMILY, as they always promote that "We Are The Aggies, The Aggies Are We." Since my Fish Camp all the way leading into my sophomore year, I enjoyed my freshman year. I felt comfortable and had no college jitters. A&M took all the precautions necessary to transition me from high school to college. I love the campus and all the extracurriculars they offer-- there's something for everyone! One thing I wish I could change is the amount of financial aid they offer; unless you are alumni, good luck getting high scholarships. However, you get what you pay for, as the high price gives us students so many amenities. I wish I could also change the parking-- we need more of it! Overall, my classes are tough so I know that I'm getting a quality education. My experience at A&M has been exemplary, and I can't wait to continue it, and I urge others to attend this beautiful campus.
This is a large school, however it feels small. The people are friendly and you often see people you know on campus. College Station is not the most interesting place, but it has everything you need. Game days in the fall as a student are incredible, there is nothing else quite like it! There are plenty of ways to get involved and find your niche, through clubs, organizations or Greek life. Most importantly, academics are great here. Programs are rigorous and the instructors are highly qualified. There are plenty of resources available to help you succeed. TAMU is also steeped in traditions that make it an incredibly unique college experience!
