A&M University is an outstanding educational institution! I am
currently in a Radiology residency at Harvard Medical School and
my education at Texas A&M really provided the foundation for
my career. If you strive to do well and succeed
at TAMU you can make it anywhere.
was an all male military school until 1964. The student
body is greater than 55% male. Also the Corps of
Cadets is very central to the social life and student
administration. 6:30 am Monday -Friday they will be
marching behind George Bush Drive. Yell practice on Friday
night before the football games at the stadium is quite
an experience. You will see lots of military uniforms on
the campus. There are also sororities and fraternities on campus.
If you want to have a social life at
A&M it is will help if you are involved in
the Corps or a fraternity if you are male. Every
once in a while there is some antagonism between the
two groups but it is really very modest at worst.
There is not much to do at College Station,
besides go to the Dixie Chicken (Corps hangout) or Dudley's
Draw. They are right across the Street from the North
end of campus and next door to each other, so
it makes the mingling easy. There are keg parties off
campus that are occasionally fun. Los Nortenos in down town
Bryan serves outstanding Mexican Food. There is nothing like
6th Street in Austin in College Station. Lake Summerville is
west of town and the Country Inn there is an
outstanding steak place. The Sailing Club has outings at Lake
Summerville which can be quite fun.
TAMU is an outstanding
educational institution. The social life is a little lame, but
the education more than makes up for it.
