What I like about Texas A&M is that everybody here shares school spirit no matter what your background is. This spirit helps you feel like you are a part of something from the moment you receive your acceptance letter, to the moment you begin your education at the school itself. It is a great school to attend with countless people to help you over any and every obstacle you may face. I can't really think of anything to change, but definitely be prepared to change your wardrobe from various colors, to Maroon and White!
Review Your College
To live on campus is a blessing. Partially because the university is so huge, living on campus is the safest bet to get to class on time and not have to worry about parking. The cost of living in dorms is pretty good considering the safety and the proximity to classes. The best options are located in the middle of campus, next to lechner and right next to sbisa. The housing process is very easy in that the application is very easy to fill out and manage. The social atmosphere is pretty good in that the students are amiable! The cost varies with the quality of the dorm of course. The decent dorms cost a manageable amount that is relatively cheap compared to other universities.
The Aggie network of alumni is extensive and great! Getting a job through networking is wonderful. However, the school itself is too crowded, and academic opportunities reflect that. The school caters too much to researchers, the school of engineering, and the business school. The entire town is way too crowded, and again, it inhibits all pursuits of time, including academic ones. It's ridiculous.
