Texas A&M has such a fun and kind community. The academics are great and help is readily available from a multitude of sources for those who need it. The staff, students, and alumni all desire for you to succeed as we are all bonded through 12th man and Aggie spirit! The only downside that I would attribute to attending Texas A&M is that College Station can get pretty boring as a small town with not a whole lot to do. However, it is not hard to make friends and there are a great many programs and organizations of all sorts for those looking for extra activity.
Review Texas A&M University
Texas A&M University is a beautiful and exciting school in an amazing college town! I love A&M because there is always something new to learn, someone new to meet, or somewhere new to go. Every day is exciting and creates new possibilities for growth and great things. Texas A&M has a beautiful campus, a great opportunity for student activities and an excellence staff to provide and outstanding education.
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!
