I am a current sophomore at Texas A&M and I have completely fallen in love with the culture and college experience given to me by TAMU. I love the sense of community and togetherness that I feel every second I am on campus. Going to class is not a chore but a privilege. There are so many that have applied and denied, and I feel very blessed to be able to call myself an aggie. If you are at all considering Texas A&M, I would encourage you to make Aggieland your 4 year home, I promise you will not regret it!
Review Texas A&M University
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!
Love my university! It is deeply rooted in tradition and values. There are plenty of opportunities for involvement and research. There is plenty to do with your free-time, study, football, on-campus organizations, you can find it all at Texas A&M.
