Texas A&M University wasn't my first choice and it seems like a lot of people I know aren't theirs either. What I do love about A&M is the financial aid assistance I received from them and it was definitely a pull factor for me. I toured on campus my senior year of high school, and it was a big school but that didn't bother me. I consider myself a "2%", which means that you don't really do any aggie traditions or any school-related events. I am there for the education and opportunities that they have to offer! I actually never knew how famous this school is until people recognized that I attended and mentioned multiple times that I went to a really good school. I feel proud that I attend here, being a first-generation student and all, I have found multiple organizations that fit my identity and interest. Besides, it is a predominantly white, conservative school, and its racist history, I feel more than happy to attend a well-known school that grants me assistance and resources.
With my major being Architecture, it's nearly impossible to learn through distance learning. There are so many things about being in person that can't easily be done from home when as a student you have access to the Architecture studio for these reasons. We make scale models by hand, need the light room to take quality photographs of our models, need the 3D printing lab, large printers for posters and blueprints, as well as the painting booth. However, my other classes are great! I haven't fallen behind or found that learning online is harder because the professors do a great job at organizing their classes to accommodate for distance learning.
Due to COVID-19, all classes were moved online for spring semester. In addition, I took summer classes this year online. Personally, the online experience was a pretty smooth transition. Again, it can be up to the specific professors as to how they handle things, but most of my professors were very understanding and flexible when it came to switching online. They always made themselves available to the students and really encouraged us to communicate with them if we ever needed anything or had something personal going on!
