Ask a Sherpa-Texas A&M

“I want to know what the atmosphere is like as a student. I hear Texas A&M is super conservative and people look down on you with different beliefs. Also, what recommendations do you make on living in the area as a first-year student?” Howdy! Don’t let rumors fool you about what Texas A&M is like. I promise you, everyone here is friendly and respects each other. It’s what we Aggies, call “The Aggie Spirit.” You’ll soon realize the connections you have, and will make, with everyone here! For a first-year student, just like any other student really, you have so many choices to choose for student living, on- or off-campus. But it’s always great to make friends, so this is where living on-campus comes into play. If not, find an apartment/house that will satisfy your wants off-campus. Fun fact: there are over 15 bus routes here at Texas A&M, so there’s ought to be one route that passes by your apartment/home off-campus.
