What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
GO TO CLASS! One should never miss out on valuable information. You're paying for a higher education and you can't receive any if you don't even go to class. PAY ATTENTION! Missing something can really jeopardize your grade on the upcoming test. HAVE FUN! One never needs to become stressed out. Being stressed interferes with one's grades and one's behavior around others. There actually is quite a bit to do on and off campus, just walk around and you're sure to find something to do.
Preston from Portland, TX
If you are interested in Pharmacy or Engineering, this school really does have amazing programs. Classes are not easy, but there is plenty of help available to make sure that you succeed.
Allison from Bishop, TX
Be prepared to take on academics head on, its far from a lot of other cities so you're mostly on your own, don't abuse your independence.
David from TX
Do not be late to class. Some professors will pretend like they didn't notice you were late, but at the end of the semester you will realize that they kept track of everyone who was late.
Do not miss class because you need to catch up on other homework. You WILL have time to do all of your work on time, this is coming from a fourth-year student with a job and current Psychology club president.
Get to know your professors. If an emergency pops up, you can easily talk to professors who know you and try to work something out.
Do not procrastinate. I have never been one to go out and party every week, so I have never pulled an all-nighter. I am an A & B student because I know how to prioritize. I am not saying to stay in your dorm all day, just know the difference between relaxing time and time to get to work time
Laura from Rio Grande City, TX
College is scary yet super excited and you're not alone! Here are some tips for incoming students or students interested in TAMUK.
- Get involved with clubs and activities, trust me, you'll make so many friends
- You actually have to study
- If you try, you will do fine
- Don't be afraid to talk to new people, these people will be your lifelong friends
- Enjoy your college experience
Sierra from Spring, TX
Come prepared. By prepared I mean prepared. You can walk everywhere on campus, so there's no need for a car unless you're wanting to go further than the campus. Pack an umbrella or rain gear (that's the only thing I forgot). If you can, save as much as you can for school. Make sure you map your classes out and walk to them the previous days you have available.
Arielle from Cibolo, TX
One tip would be to keep on top of your financial aid, as the staff themselves do not keep on top of it unless pressured to do so. Also stay on top of homework assignments and attendance as some professors do take into account attendance.
Ashleigh from Mcallen, TX
This school is close to the beach if you're looking for a good time. The iTech services are helpful when it comes to computer problems. The Academic Success Center is a great place for study groups to gather and help each other out.
Kaitlin from Jourdanton, TX
It is important to get involved. Entering college can be a scary thing. It is a new environment and many times you are entering it alone. But getting involved in activities is a great way to make friends, and soon it'll feel like home.
