Texas A&M University began its mission in 1876 as the state’s first institution of higher learning. Functioning as a research-intensive flagship university, the college dedicates time to focus on sending students out into the world to take on challenges.

Among the nation’s largest universities, Texas A&M spans over 5,200 acres with a student body larger than 59,000. Opening after the Morrill Act that allows donations of public land to the states for funding higher education, the college focused on scholarship in scientific and classical studies.

Furthermore, admission during 1876 remained limited to white males who must have completed military training. Undergoing many changes in the 1960s, the college accepted African Americans and women, making military training voluntary as well.

Flourishing into one of the nation’s most premier research universities, Texas A&M holds the triple distinction of land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant designations.

Texas A&M University has six core values making it unique, including excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect, and selfless service. Students show these characteristics through the events, traditions, and clubs held throughout each year.

Bringing students together, the college has qualities and activities such as “Aggie terminology”, the Aggie Ring, and even traditions such as placing pennies at the base of the Sul Ross statue for extra luck on an upcoming examination. One of the oldest traditions, first taking place in 1926, the senior class walks through the campus together one last time, known as the elephant walk.

With more than 130 undergraduate degree programs, 170 master’s degree programs, 93 doctoral degree programs and five first professional degrees as option for study, A&M provides endless possibilities.

Students–consider Texas A&M University to earn a college degree!
