This is a large school, however it feels small. The people are friendly and you often see people you know on campus. College Station is not the most interesting place, but it has everything you need. Game days in the fall as a student are incredible, there is nothing else quite like it! There are plenty of ways to get involved and find your niche, through clubs, organizations or Greek life. Most importantly, academics are great here. Programs are rigorous and the instructors are highly qualified. There are plenty of resources available to help you succeed. TAMU is also steeped in traditions that make it an incredibly unique college experience!

Being an aggie for almost 4 years has been an incredible experience. Although I didn’t get to be in many organizations or very close to school events I still manage to experience the great diversity and was able to meet many students that I now call my friends. An aggie takes care of another aggie all the time! Its traditions is something that always bring us together whether its at football games, cultural events, breakaway, aggie muster, or even going to our local country dancing place. Nothing is better than ending our night singing our aggie war hymn. Nevertheless, this school has most definitely giving me the satisfaction of what being an aggie is all about
There were so many opportunities I missed out on during my undergraduate career at TAMU. I am back now for my master's and I wish when I had more time as an undergrad to go out and explore my campus, organizations, and talk with more people in my classes and talk with my professors. Go to office hours! Take advantage of the REC center. Attend events on campus and bring some friends along. Get involved in your community. It's important to explore your freshman first semester and then build a strong foundation your second semester and learn from previous mistakes.
