    Tips for prospective students

    Find friends that have the same class and help each other understand and get along. It's so much easier when you have a buddie.

    Bang for the buck

    I'm still in the deciding stages of this peticular question. It has however been a very interesting experience.

    Am enjoying being here

    Overall I love being at A&M but the business center and student affairs offices are still relatively new and so, very unorganized and confusing an be confusing if you don't talk to the right people.

    Am learning a lot

    Being at A&M Texarkana I feel i've learned alot about myself and the world after high school. The professors I have had the pleasure to be taught by push us to do well and try to help however they can.

    Campus Safety

    There is always campus security around. I feel safe even when I don't see them.

    Greek Life

    So far there is one fraternity but we are in the process of getting more and sororities as well.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a numerous amounts of clubs here. I am currently a part of four clubs myself. Even if there isn't a club you are interested in, then you can easily create one.

    Great for these types of students

    Fun people that can adapt to another environment that has something going on all of the time.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We host karaoke in the University Center once a month.

    Bang for the buck

    For what you pay for, this is an extremely good school. The dorms are brand new and the school is in the process of building another one.

    What to do for fun

    Socialize and hang out in the many lounges, play pool, swim, play volleyball, play ping pong, or work out.

    Food and Dining

    They give you a variety of foods to eat everyday. For those who don't want what is served on your meal plan, there are many more options you can choose from.

    Dorm Life

    Since the dorm building has about 300 rooms, everyone is pretty close. We are like a family. The dorms life here is one I wouldn't trade for anything.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay active and get involved

    This is the place where I can start my new life. The campus atmosphere is quaint and I am surrounded people that care about me. We strive together as a community to make each other better people.

    What to do for fun

    The Residence Hall Association, and Activities Board put on many activities. However, these activities are small scale and usually involve no more than a maximum of 50 people. At the dorm there is a swimming pool and volleyball court that is excellent for warm weather conditions.

    Food and Dining

    There is absolutely no food variety. The college offers no options for those that wish to pursue alternate eating habits than the typical young adult (vegetarian, gluten-free). This is likely the most negative aspect of this college.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is great. A good amount of cohesiveness, but because of the limited size of the university social life is not exactly booming.

    Academic Rigor

    There is not much academic rigor in the university at this time. I would expect that to change, but at the moment professors are mediocre and typically don't engage students to the point that would be desirable by most university standards. Student are content with mediocre accomplishment and there is little academic pursuit.

    Tips for prospective students

    This university does not have the school spirit, sense of cohesiveness, or social aspect that a larger university has. It does contain a sense of unity in that it is still small enough to put a definite measure on its structure. People are very friendly and classes are relatively easy to pass.

    In three sentences

    It is in the developmental stages so lacks many of the aspects that make a larger university great; however the university has a great social environment where people are accepting and diverse. Faculty and student morale is mediocre, but will likely develop to a higher standard with time. The small environment is sure to attract many prospective students.

    Campus Safety

    In my opinion the security at TAMUT is top notch. I have been attending TAMUT since 2012 and there hasn't been one tragic incident in the university center or the dorms. There is constant security and surveillance allover the campus, the campus itself is located in good and secluded neighborhood, and the campus is so small that security can detect almost anything that happens. Also, the school dorms has 24 hour surveillance and it has a front door staff members that are on a 24 hour shift to keep track of visitors that come in and out of the dorms.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is minor but is getting big at the school. Currently there is a Kappa Sigma and Phi Lamb fraternity, and an Alphi Chi sorority and the all create their own unique events to further bring excitement to the school.The cool thing about Greek life at TAMUT is all current members are considered founding fathers because all current fraternities and sororities at TAMUT recently became a chapter or are still in the process of becoming a chapter which brings chance for students to become part of something new,

    Clubs and Activities

    TAMUT has many clubs such the Sociology club, STEM club, English club, CAB and since its a new school every student has the opportunity to start their own club and maybe even grow it into becoming a big part of the school. TAMUT might be boring but it has numerous activities that are exciting to participate in such as its annual magician and comedian visitations, annual intramural competitions (flag football, basketball, softball and volleyball etc.), and the annual casino night in which allot of prizes are giving out to the students. TAMUT recently created a women soccer team and this more excitement to the school because the soccer stadium the play home games at is right next to the dorm and the university center. TAMUT also debuted its first homecoming and homecoming dance this year, Fall 2014, so it is moving in the right direction in bring more excitement to the campus.

    Great for these types of students

    TAMUT is built for students that are about academic part of college, not for students that are about the party life of college. TAMUT will help you get your bachelors degree if you utilize its current setting to your advantage!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    TAMUT has this tradition where students sign a big book during their freshman during the Freshman Convocation to mark their as one of the forefathers at the school. There is also a casino night every spring semester in which prizes such as TV, game systems etc. are won by students that participate.

    Bang for the buck

    This is the main reason I love this school. Attending TAMUT in my opinion is buying a great stock at a discount. It is easy to get the institutional scholarships at the school, the tuition is about $6000 a semester which is very cheap for a brand name four year university, the professors are very intelligent and cooperative, there is free tutoring for all subjects, the school population is so small that you can interact with your professors on a daily basis and can even voice your opinion to the administrators to bring change to the school. Also, there are many programs to help you do good in their classes such as the Success Center and the FYE program.

    What to do for fun

    There is a swimming pool and a sand volley ball arena at the back of the dorms, and a brand new soccer field was recently built as well. The university itself has a student life section that contains pool table, Foosball table, ping pong table, gym, yoga station and an Xbox 360 station.

    Food and Dining

    The food is the only thing I don't like about the TAMUT because the require all students that live in the dorms to pay for meal plans which are used in the school cafeteria. The only way to eat food from somewhere else is to drive inside the city itself.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is only boring if you do not make any friends, but it is co-ed and the RHA group at the dorm always trying to create new activities to try and keep the students excited. I personally like dorms because it gives you less distractions and more time to focus on your books and make good grades in your classes. The dorm looks brand new and every room comes provided with a TV, a refrigerator, a microwave and a closet/cabinet area.The only bad thing about the dorms is its strict visitation rule but it serves its purpose which is to keep accidents from happening.

    Academic Rigor

    TAMUT offers an variety of majors such as Biology for students doing their premed and Sociology etc., but it is more focused toward majors such as Psychology, Engineering, and Teaching. TAMUT currently has a good list of undergraduate majors but it need to add more majors to its graduate level program.

    Tips for prospective students

    When at TAMUT, put yourself out there! If you put yourself out there and get to know the faculty members at TAMUT, I promise they will help you achieve whatever you want to achieve from TAMUT.

    In three sentences

    It is a four year university with one of the cheapest tuition in Texas out of all other four year universities. It is a new university with new facilities and is very proactive in giving its students everything they need to pass their courses. It is located in a very boring city which makes it the ideal school to go to if you don't want any distractions and need free time to study and pass your classes.
