It's an amazing school where people are really friendly and accessible. The staff are supportive and really helpful when it comes to tutoring. Corps of Cadets is eh ok. Super driven but not for everybody.
Although it sometimes lacks the person touch of in person classrooms, online learning with Texas A&M is still held to the same standards of said in person classes. The professors I've had have all made it a goal to create an enjoyable class room feel even without in person meeting and discussion.
Texas A&M University is a college like no other. The atmosphere is dedicated towards student success and excellence, and there is an essence of trying to guarantee the best possible education for each given student. The traditions and values held by Texas A&M are second to none, and the ability to be a part of its culture is something any willing student should think of experiencing.
Online learning for me personally was not good. Half of my classes did nothing virtually, just posted notes and the tests to take. One did a virtual meeting but it was hard to focus which can't really be helped I suppose. I had a lab online which amplified the struggle to focus and felt like I was missing key aspects since I was not doing anything hands on. One class made tests significantly harder for some reason. I think online learning is just not a good fit for me personally so I can't attribute it all on TAMU but any accommodations did not fit me.
I really love Texas A&M, it has great educators and programs as well as tons of organizations to join. The sense of community here is exciting, especially during sporting events, and every building is so well kept and up to date. This truly is a great place to be apart of. The only reason I don't give it a full 5 stars is due to the online classes that were put into effect because of COVID-19, which I feel were not as quality as everything else TAMU does. I can't necessarily blame them too much for this because who plans for a pandemic, but still, online courses were not a good experience.
When I took online courses at TAMU, they were every bit as intensive as in-person classes. I felt like they weren't filler courses and I still learned a lot, even without getting face-to-face instruction.
I took three courses online during the Coronavirus pandemic, and I learned very quickly that online classes were not my thing. While I did relatively well in classes I am passionate about( these were also classes where the professor got things set up on ecampus quickly and was very good at communicating. It was difficult to learn in classes that really require hands in experiences like lab. I will say that the professors did a very good job at accommodating to the challenges of this semester when it came time to make grades final. It was a tough situation for everyone.
I live the atmosphere around A&M. Students and professors genuinely want to build each other up and help each other out. That is kindness I have not seen anywhere else. I am so thankful to be able to share the Aggie experience with fellow peers and the sourrounding community. I think A&M does a fine job at accommodating to the study habits of students, with multiple libraries that are open 24/7 and an incredible advising staff. I would mike to see less construction, but I realize that is just something that takes time. I also think that making sports, other than football more well known could benefit funding for the programs and would love to hear more about Golfing opportunities!
