What Students Are Saying

3.47 Average Rating
Develop good study habits before coming into college will make life a whole lot easier, but if you don't have good study skills, then the people as the CASA will help you learn new skills. Also, don't forget to have fun! there are plenty of things to be involved in around campus!
Bethany from Tomball, TX
Build a good relationship with the guidance counselors there, because they are very helpful. The general student population is very kind and helpful, so don't be intimidated by the fact that they are college students. They were once in your shoes, so most people will always be willing to be helpful. It's probably best to live on campus your first year to make sure you meet more people, and it is also a lot easier to get to class on time when you have a five minute walk compared to a ten minute drive, and the ten minutes extra trying to find a rare parking spot. Try and meet as many new people and groups to find your place, but remember at the same time that while college is an experience, you're there to receive your degree and get the best grades possible.
Mike from TX
Visit the campus. Learn about the different clubs you can join. Check out the program they offer for your major. I know this is an excellent place to get an Education degree and a Nursing degree. [Our brand new nursing building is opening sometimes in 2010 I think! And we have a college of business building on the way.] But visit once, visit twice. Look around the town and get to know it. Make sure you want to be here and don't settle on just any college.
Kimberly from Friendswood
It is easy for college students to get caught up in partying which is only natural, but I would have to say to also stay focused on what you want from college and how well you would like to do. If you get to caught up in college life you might find yourself not doing as well as you anticipated.
Elizabeth from Ingleside, TX
If you want to go to college, go here! It is such an amazing place because they are very grade focused and seriously help you in every way possible to get you the grade you need. It's also a really good idea to become involved in different clubs and organizations because it is a great way to make friends and network. Don't be afraid to talk to people in your class, it's good to know everyone in there incase you miss or something comes up. Exercise when you can, it seriously helps your mind stay focused! College is something everyone needs to experience, it's life-changing.
Sarah from Plano, TX
Come to TAMUCC with an open mind and be ready to get involved for the ultimate college experience. dont let the beach distract you, focus on school first then play latter. Dont be afraid to talk to your professor they are more than willing to help you, just take the initiative and go talk to them.
Brandy from San Antonio, TX
Make sure you get to know your professors and always go to office hours! Your first year you will have a seminar class to help you get through your first year here, DO NOT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED! The class is always fun and helps a lot for your next years here.
Mariana from Corpus Christi, TX
There are several things I would recommend to a new student or someone who is planning on attending TAMUCC.
1. Always accept your awards through your S.A.I.L account. It may appear as though you've been awarded your tuition, but make sure that you hit the accept button or the awards will disappear after two weeks, and it is very hard to get them back. (If you were under the Islander Guarantee, you will probably have to take out loans at this point.) Just make sure you accept your awards!
2. I would recommend buying your textbooks from an online source. Do some research and figure out where you will get them at the cheapest price. The campus book store is wonderful for souveniers/ college gear, but the price of the textbooks will not be very discounted. I would recommend getting USED textbooks because they are always cheaper.
3. Live on campus for your freshman year, or while you are adjusting to the college life or even just the campus. The rent is a little high, but you get free internet, phone, cable TV, and all other bills are paid. Living off campus can become more expensive if you have to pay bills! The Camden Miramar housing is wonderful and a very short distance from your classes.
Rebecca from Chireno, TX
Don't be afraid to ask fro help or to visit one of the help centers on campus like CASA. It's all rolled into your tuition, so use it lose it!
Choose your friends wisely. There will always be parties, but will there always be time to study for that major test coming up?
Francesca from Round Rock, TX
Attend Island Day! It's the school preview day, where they do fun stuff and give you a campus tour. I'm a tour guide for the school, so I work at every Island Day and help prospective students like you! It's fun, and you get a free t-shirt.
