Colleges in Texas

You may not want to mess with Texas, but you might want to consider going to college there. There are 167 colleges in Texas, 108 public and 59 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. Texas has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.


If you're aspiring to become a doctor or pursuing any health-related profession, consider Rice University. Located in Houston, this university is right next to the world's largest medical center, Texas Medical Center, offering pre-med students at Rice a phenomenal research opportunity. Nicole H., a student at Rice, says about her experience with the Lone Star state, "Texas is ridiculously friendly. When you walk around campus, people you don't know smile and nod or wave to you. It was something like being welcomed with open arms." Elizabeth R., also a Rice student adds, "Everyone here really values education and every discipline is represented. We also love our sports and the "friendly" competition between schools. Attending sporting events is a great way to meet people and support your school."


There's also Texas Agricultural and Mechanical University (Texas A&M), located in College Station, Texas. Texas A&M was the first public university in Texas, a pioneer in education, and its campus is one of the largest in the country. It is also a high-ranking research institution. Rick Perry, the current governor of Texas graduated from A&M in 1972.


Of course, you can't forget the University of Texas. The flagship campus is located in Austin and is a major center for academic research. With enrollment over 50,000, it's one of the largest in the country, too. Further, Texas is one of the original "Public Ivies," a distinction coined in 1985 bestowed to universities that provide an Ivy League experience at a public school price.


Other Texas colleges include Baylor University in Waco, Texas Tech University in Lubbock, University of Houston, Lamar University in Beaumont, Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, University of North Texas in Denton, and many, many more.
