This is the worst university that I haveSuper BrilliantPolitical Science
This is the worst university that I have ever attended. The faculty are not friendly, the advisers are downright hostile and unhelpful, the students are all deeply self-absorbed and uncommunicative, and as far as making friends and having new experiences, your chances are next to zero, unless you are a movie star or filthy rich.

If you grew up in a small town,BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
If you grew up in a small town, and like the small town life, this school is for you definitely. I come from a small town and the campus feels like home, the people are nice, exc. If you're looking for a school with an exciting social life, a lot of new people every day you go to class, and/or a surrounding town with a lot to do, then Commerce is not for you.

A great college if you learn best with small class sizes, and like having the same people in all of your classes. Also a good college to commute to/from. I don't recommend staying on campus just because to me, it's not very safe at night and neither are the apartments and houses in Commerce itself.

I have only been here one semester and I am already bored here, and I feel that I'm not thriving to my fullest ability. I am a Business major and a big part of that is enlarging your circle and getting to know everyone, and honestly I feel like I'm already almost there yet I haven't even been here a full year.

There is a handful of fast food restaurants, one country dancing bar, and one hookah lounge. Other than that, Commerce itself is a ghost town. Greek life is a semi-big thing here, because there's not much else to do, but even that can be very boring at times. Don't get me wrong, the staff and professors are great and all really care about whether or not you do well. The people who go to Commerce are, for the most part, friendly and easy to talk to. TAMUC just isn't for me simply because: I'm not satisfied with the social life, my expansion on connecting with others feels limited, the campus does not feel very safe, the school is just too small for my taste, and my major is not the schools best program.

I transferred there from a community college andQuite BrightVideo/Media
I transferred there from a community college and spent 2 1/2 years, 1/2 year was a full summer session, and completed a radio/tv major and a business minor. I felt like the time spent was a waste as after having graduated I found myself 5-10 years behind technology wise from what I was taught and what was currently being used in the department.

The department actually had a film chain! We're talking about the old system in which a 16/35mm film could be either aired on TV or more so transferred to a video tape. But I'm not sure if that even worked as no film could be found but instead we used the 35mm slide portion. That's right, the same type of slides when watching grandma's trip to the Grand Canyon.

Field equipment: A somewhat decent camera system but tied, and I mean tied by a cable to an older system A 3/4" videotape deck. Imagine dragging that around.

Jobs and post-grad support. The department didn't really help on that but then again neither did the university career center. The career center had no idea what my major was about as they only had a couple of binders of jobs, most of which were geared toward teaching jobs. But most were outdated/expired.For me, it was a complete was of time and money as I never did find work in my major field. That's right, nothing and it has been almost 20 years since I graduated.
