The connections that I have been able to make through this University have been invaluable! Mays business school has numerous professional programs, such as the Trading Risk Investment Progam, Titans of Investing, PPA, and more that provide students with the opportunity to get an amazing jumpstart on our career. Also, there are many off-campus housing options at Texas A&M, some of which are the cost of a dorm that allows students to have their own room.

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!
A&M is a really good university. I learned a lot from my professors, and I got a lot of hands on experience in my field. I also developed a huge network of people that will help me when I go to get a job. Aggies help Aggies! However, A&M is not a very diverse or artistic school. There is not really an art program, and there is not a lot of diversity, either in thought or people. College Station is not the most exciting place to live either. Despite this, I loved attending A&M, and I fully intend to continue here as a graduate student.
