Texas A&M International University is a young, vibrant school that is still growing. However, the majority of current students will probably tell you that TAMIU doesn't necessarily provide them with the complete college experience because there is little social unity on campus and a lack of school spirit. But, on the upside, the University is still in the process of constructing efficient buildings and obtaining up-to-date equipment for educational purposes. While students may seem a bit disappointed with the lack of activities around campus, the school is still relatively new, is starting to show signs of growth, and has enormous potential. Right now, most students tend to do their own thing around campus, as opposed to spreading social unity. While it is true that the city of Laredo is not the most enjoyable atmosphere for students, the University’s academics more than make up for this.
The overall experience at TAMIU could be improved if organizations did a better job promoting the University and if TAMIU organized pep rallies to bring some school spirit back on campus. AutMus Fest is probably the only significant event of the school year and is not enough to bring people together. If there was another school that had cheaper tuition rates and a better academic background near Laredo, then some students might choose that over TAMIU. However, TAMIU is the only major university near the city that offers bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees. Overall, TAMIU is perfect for people who enjoy a small city but are not necessarily looking for the full “traditional” college experience.
