Most Helpful Review for Texas A & M University-College Station

I'm a chemical engineering major, which in my opinion is the hardest major at school not only because of the homework but because it challenges you to think in a completely new way. While other schools might emphasize by-the-book engineering, you're tested on your knowledge of concepts rather than the actual material. This encourages you to apply what you learn in real-life situations, preparing you for the corporate world where an engineering mistake could cost lives. I really enjoy this major and am learning a lot about myself as well as about my engineering field!

    Texas A&M in College Station is a very large campus with over 50,000 people in its student body and a strong Corps and military service tradition. It is a very conservative campus overall, but there are some opportunities for more liberally-minded or minority students if they are willing to go the extra mile to find existing organizations or create their own and are willing to face the challenges of even existing on a large, conservative campus. One of the best parts about Texas A&M is its football and other campus traditions, and the sense of an Aggie community through that, including Yell Practice.

    Texas A&M has strong tradition and amazing amounts of school spirit. The programs they offer are way greater than I expected. The Corps of Cadets program seems like a perfect fit for me after touring the campus with a Corps staff member.

    You can go many places for great academics--and Texas A&M certainly doesn't disappoint when it comes to the caliber of it's teachers or it's out-of class scholastic opportunities--, but you'd be hard-pressed to find such a tightly-knit community as the Aggies. Going to Texas A&M is not something that affects only four years of your life; it's something that provides networking and opportunities that last a lifetime. That, more than anything, sets A&M apart as a great university.

    A&M may be in a little town in the middle of nowhere but it has a lot to offer on it's huge campus. Most of it's programs are some of the best and the Aggie Network is as pervasive as it's hyped up to be. If you're looking for great camaraderie or if you're just looking for a quality education without defaulting on student loans, Texas A&M can easily be the school for you.

    Texas A&M has a great small town yet plenty to do feel to it. In just the short amount of time I have spent there I have really felt like I was at home.
