Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I truly believe that the Industrial Distribution program at A&M is worth every dollar spent. It is a one of a kind program that allows business professionals pursue their degree while working full time. This is the only MID program in the Nation and it has proved to be a great one. The staff is phenomenal. I would recommend this program to anyone. I already know that everything I have and will learn throughout the program will help me to grow exponentially within my career.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Being on Texas A&M Campus has really made me appreciate all the diversity. In my specific program I'm actually the minority which is something I've never experienced before, but it has enriched my education so much! I'm also very impressed with the faculty here; I've never before come across professors with such a genuine desire to assist their students. I love it here! This was definitely the right choice for me.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm now in my second semester of my program after taking a year off between my undergrad. My program has been very helpful by allowing me to do a non-thesis option which allows me to continue working full time so that I can at least make most of my ends meet. The faculty that are serving as my committee members have done an incredible job of taking what I'm passionate about and helping me design a degree curriculum and final project.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program is fairly well organized despite being so new. I have access to amazing mentors and advisors who have been incredibly helpful to me and have guided me through the transition to graduate school. However, it is very difficult to become integrated in the social life of Texas A&M University and the surrounding College Station area, as it is oriented towards a younger, less mature crowd. Financial aid in terms of scholarships is very difficult to acquire, as there are few scholarships available for students who are pursuing a non-thesis Masters degree, such as myself. I love the relevancy of the academics and education in preparing me for veterinary school, as my Biomedical Sciences major is primarily for students who are pursuing a medical professional degree following the Masters program.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

The career resources are phenomenal - the career advisors go out of their way to make sure you are aware of the career resources available to help you successfully acquire the internship or job you need. Also, they provide mandatory coaching on the different aspects of the recruiting process (LinkedIn, resume, interviewing, professional dress, etc.) to make sure you're aware of what you need to work on to become more successful in those endeavors. My classes so far have been really dynamic, and full of opportunities to understand how concepts learned apply to the "real world"; cases have been used in every class I've had so far to expand student learning and thinking. I do not feel that I have been lacking in my learning in any way. The students are competitive, but there isn't any sort of me-versus-the-world attitude; whenever I've asked a peer a question, he/she has been willing to help answer it. However, I feel that because of the large social atmosphere and extent of social clubs at the school, students can be a little clique-ish.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The MPH program at Texas A&M is a small, relatively new program when compared with other public health programs across the country. However, the Texas A&M Health Science Center seems committed to growing the School of Public Health by encouraging alumni involvement and by actively advising students of available internship, fellowship, and job opportunities. A number of classes are available online, and most courses meet three hours once a week, so this program could be conducive to someone with a job. College Station is a nice town with affordable housing, but don't expect a wide variety of social events outside of those held by the university (e.g. concerts, theater programs,etc.), although this is changing as the area's population continues to grow.
