Texas A&M University Reviews
Texas A&M is an amazing school that makes every student feel apart of something important. It is incredible that such a large school can still find a way to assure that every student feels apart of the family that is the Aggies. There are so many amazing opportunities that comes along with attending Texas A&M which is another reason it is such an awesome school. Aggies helping Aggies. There is a club for everyone, there are people for everyone, there is a special place for everyone. Classes are great and professors truly want the best for the students. I have learned so much, school wise and about myself during my first year at TAMU and I can't wait to go back!
My overall experience at TAMU has been great! As an incoming freshman, I was intimidated by the large campus but you find your way easily with the app. I have often stayed late on campus studying in the library, and I have always felt safe. I never lived in the dorms, opting to live in a nearby apartment complex on a bus route instead. The buses are convenient in theory, as in they do get you around on and off campus. However, they are not reliable. Sometimes it takes 5 minutes to get to West campus and other days you are waiting 15 minutes at the bus stop because the route is backed up, or the first bus was full and you have to wait for the next. So far, I have only had three "bad apples" for professors. There are SO many student organizations to join, there is truly something for everyone. The REC offers a lot of clubs and group exercise classes. And Northgate is always a fun scene!
As a senior, I have been around this town and University for a while now. My experience in an educational capacity thus far has been extremely positive. The professors all care about the students and subject-matter a lot. In a social capacity, I have made lifelong friends for sure, but my only complaint is the lack of inclusivity from a large portion of the school. There are, like with any school, plenty of racists and close-minded individuals. But don't let that divert you from attending!
