I love being a Fightin' Texas Aggie, Whoop! I love my university so much and the traditions that it is firmly rooted in. Now I will say, organizations are pretty competitive and difficult to get into, but this does prepare you for how applications for graduate schools and organizations beyond the university will be. This campus is definitely the friendliest and just shouting the work Howdy will get just about anyone's attention. I can say with confidence that I choose to attend THE greatest university in the state of Texas and I have no doubts about that. Gig 'Em

Texas A&M university is a very friendly campus where everyone greets each other very politely and always ready to help. I have never felt safer living anywhere else. Moving away to different city would usually feel differently, but living at A&M feels just like home. Everyone is like a big family. It has so many clubs which personally helped me meet many people and also helped me open up more often. It’s only been a month, and it’s already having positive effect on me. I can truly say I made the right decision choosing A&M. It wouldn’t feel right if I don’t finish off by saying, GIG EM!
I love where I learn! Texas A&M has been a dream come true and I wouldn't change a thing about it! Growing up my mother had always taught me that I could do anything I wanted to if I did my best and gave my best in all that I did. Being raised by a single mom was hard at times, but it taught me that no matter what the circumstance I could overcome any obstacles. I graduated number three in my class with a 106 average. I have been taught to stay humble and to always put God first. By doing this, my faith has kept me driving on and not give up. I am the loudest and proudest member of the Texas fighting Aggies Class of 2021 and I can't wait for the next chapter of my life. I will continue to keep the drive I've been taught and do my best in whatever God's plan is for me! I will do His work with whatever my job my be in the future. I will be the Christian Engineer that will always put God first, stay humble, help others, and the rest will fall into place!
