Most students either love or hate A&M, and those who hate it usually transfer out their first year. A&M offers an incredible educational and lifetime experience that most students thoroughly enjoy. If you have a problem with life at A&M, it's most likely because you haven't found a niche and you still feel lost in the crowd. In a school this big, it's not hard to feel as though you've vanished. It can be difficult to find people with common interests that you really click with, but if you get involved in student organizations and your classes, you'll figure it out. It can be intimidating at first, but don't give up. Going away to college is a big change, and it can take a while to get adjusted and find your place, no matter what kind of person you are.
Aggies have an overwhelming pride in their school, and the age-old traditions can seem annoying to a new student who has never been a part of them. However, the consistency of the traditions that carry on year after year offers a timeless experience that you can share with your any other A&M grad. Although times are constantly changing here, some things will always stay the same, and this gives A&M that special feeling that is hard to find at any other campus. Here, you are not just getting an education; you're becoming part of a whole new culture, taking part in its current events, and becoming part of its history. In the long run, A&M isn't just about going somewhere for four years to learn; It's like becoming part of a society that will continue to shape and mold your life, and the lives of those around you, forever.
