Traffic is the worst
A quick note about my least favorite thing in College Station: the TRAFFIC. The infrastructure of this town was not really designed to hold 70k kids + residents. It takes students anywhere from 5 minutes (#dormlife) to 45 minutes (If you live in the Bryan area) to commute to class by car. It takes me about 30 minutes (15-20 to drive, and 10 to walk to class).
Texas a&m put a ring on it! ring day!
One of the biggest traditions here at Texas A&M University is earning your Aggie Ring and participating in RING DAY! The Aggie Ring is not just any ring, "The Aggie Ring unites generations of the A&M family by connecting former students to each other and their alma mater. It stands as a milestone in every student's undergraduate career. The first Aggie Ring was cast in 1889. It was solid gold with the letters "AMC" intertwined, for Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, along with four diamonds, according to Texas A&M: The First 25 Years by Lyman Hardeman. One side of the ring symbolizes the seal of the State of Texas authorized by the constitution of 1845. The five-pointed star is encircled with a wreath of olive or laurel leaves symbolizing achievement and a desire for peace and Live oak leaves symbolizing the strength to fight. They are joined at the bottom by a circled ribbon to show the necessity of joining these two traits to accomplish one’s ambition to serve. The other side with its ancient cannon, saber, and rifle symbolizes that Texans fought for their land and are determined to defend their homeland. The saber stands for valor and confidence. The rifle and cannon are symbols of preparedness and defense. The crossed flags of the United States and Texas recognize the dual allegiance to nation and state." Here at Texas A&;M we strongly believe that Aggies lookout for other Aggies, and it is said that when you step into the "real world" with your Aggie Ring on your finger, you're bound to come across many other former students who share similar experiences with you. The world will suddenly become a lot smaller when you've got your Aggie Ring on! "From the outside looking in, you can't understand it. And from the inside looking out, you can't explain it." Congratulations to my roommate, Elizabeth! Getting your Aggie Ring is a huge deal, and she definitely worked hard for this day!
Transportation talk: ride to campus with me!
If you don't want to pay for a parking pass and you're too far to walk to campus, you can join the biking party with me! I live approximately 1.3 miles away from my first class in the Psychology building this semester and it was a simple 5-8 minute bike ride depending on if you get stuck waiting for the cross walk light to turn. At first, biking was challenging and I found myself getting out of breath very quickly but I quickly began building endurance throughout the semester. After the first week of biking, it was a breeze! Put on your helmet, stick one ear phone in your ear and jam out (I specify one because you still want to be able to hear cars coming), and peddle your way to campus. It's good for your health and great for your budget at the same time. Now, if you're too far to bike, then God Bless our bus system here at Texas A&M! We've got one of the best on-campus and off-campus bus systems I've ever seen to be honest. There is a live update on the Texas A&M App that shows you where buses are, and you don't ever have to wait longer than fifteen to twenty minutes. Again, this is a really quick and inexpensive option if you're not a fan of paying for a parking pass or don't have a vehicle here in town. Parking garages here at Texas A&M are amazing as well! We've got so many to choose from, my personal favorite it The University Center Garage (UCG) also known as Koldus! On days that are raining and I don't feel like getting soaked, I simply drive to the UCG and take a ticket. You have the option to pay for parking if you don't have a garage pass! It's a fantastic option if you ever need to get on campus but don't have time or if the weather doesn't allow it. You can check the Texas A&M App for live updates on how many available spots are in each garage so you don't pull into a garage that's already full. All transportation information here at Texas A&M University is one simple click away for you!
My favorite coffee shop: sweet eugene's
In this video, I show you a little bit around my favorite coffee shop and study area! The style of this coffee shop is antique, but the environment in the shop is great. I usually get mochas here, but I decided to taste test a vanilla latte for you guys in this video. The coffee shop is opened till 1AM on some nights, which makes it very convenient for students who like to study here.
This is an intro to A&M! Many of the things talked about in this video will be explained in further detail throughout the tour. There are many phrases used throughout the video such as "gig 'em" and "aggies." The term "Gig 'em" comes from hunting frogs or fish using a pronged spear called a "gig." It is a thumbs up sign! Aggies are current and former students.
Engineering ft. markus
Markus gives us his perspective on the engineering department at A&M. He also mentions parking and traffic, which can sometimes get hectic, especially at peak hours (usually in the afternoons).
Campus landmark - sull ross statute
Who is Sullivan Ross and how does he affect our campus today? Find out here.
Hidden gem: recreation balcony
This is one of my hidden gems that I found here at Texas A&M! It is located at the top of the recreation center and it is very low-key and relaxing. A lot of people do not know about this balcony, but it has wonderful views of Kyle Field. This makes it awesome to take pictures before a game, or it's even fun to come and study here on a day with nice weather.

Southside and the quad.mov
In this video I show part of the south side of campus and talk briefly about the corps of cadets and the school's history. Texas A&M University was founded in 1876 as Texas Agricultural and Mechanical college after the Morill Act of 1866. From to beginning of the school until 1965, Texas A&M was an all male, military school. After 1964, women were allowed to attend and in 1965, membership in the Corps of Cadets was voluntary. Now, the Corps is one of our many traditions and are considered "the guardians of tradition" at A&M. This is a brief history of this part of the school and of the corps of cadets. On the South side of campus, there is the Commons and several other dorms, Heldenfels Hall where math, chemistry, and biology lab classes are held, the University Center Garage, South Side Garage, and the golf course.
Sorority row is located about 8 minutes from campus and is the home of female greek life. At Texas A&M most greek students will live in their prospective sorority houses their sophomore or junior year before moving to an apartment or house.

A day in the life of a texas a&m student
In this video I explore a full day in my life as a student at Texas A&M. I drop my girlfriend off at Mays Business School for an Honors interview, I run an eBay account so I print out and ship product, I meet my girlfriend at Wehner for ISTM 210, I go record at the creative room, we go to the GEM of CSTAT which is Aldi Grocery Store, we go to the rec center to workout, and we finish homework. WHEW. That was a lot. Texas A&M is unique in the sense that it offers seemingly infinite resources for its students. If you utilize resourcefulness, you can really take advantage of all this amazing school has to offer. Now come along as I take you through an average day in my life! Reach out if you have any questions :-)
Texas A & M University-College Station Academic Building
At the center of Academic Plaza is the Academic Building! Enjoy the tour of this capital building look alike.
Academic building and plaza
Welcome to the Academic Building and Plaza! There is a lot of history in both the building and its surroundings. From the luck of Sullivan Ross to the replica of the Liberty Bell, this area at TAMU is very important to campus. Students can attend class here, have a picnic on the grass, or even attend events that are held in the plaza.
Texas A & M University-College Station Academic Plaza
When your school inspires disney pixar!
This is a look at the Academic Plaza. It is the center of main campus and served as inspiration for Disney Pixar's Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University! We have many Aggies that work at Pixar. Sully from Monsters, Inc was named after the university's president, Lawrence Sullivan Ross and The Academic Building was the inspiration for Monster University's Scare School!
Pennies on statues, monsters inc., and more!
Former Texas A&M University President Lawrence Sullivan "Sul" Ross has been helping students survive finals week since 1891. This statue of "Sully" represents much more than just someone that once was in charge of the university, but an individual who truly cared about the students, and showcased the Aggie Spirit in many aspects of life. When you pass this statue, you'll notice stacks of pennies at the base. The tradition to put a "penny on Sully" is expressed because it was said that Ross would help students with their studies, when the students would ask how they could repay him, he would simply reply with, "A penny for your thoughts." If you ever need good luck before a big exam, Sully's got you! It's also said that Sully from the popular Pixar movie Monsters, Inc. was named after our very own Lawrence Sullivan Ross!
Texas A & M University-College Station Blaze Pizza
College Station has a historical reputation of being boring. I don't agree with this. If everyone I know ALWAYS has schedules packed with social, campus, community and service events then it can't be too boring here. We don't have a fancy mall or plethora of entertainment options like a college located in the city would have. But we have a million places to eat, parks, tons of concerts, movie theaters and community events. Plus College Station is less than two hours to Waco and Austin and less than an hour 15 minutes to Houston. So, if you are ever truly bored it's easy to take a weekend road trip!!
