    Texas A&M by Kevin Yuan

    Imagine a six-tiered structure of toiling flames, reaching up to 109 feet in height and tens and thousands of screaming fans at Kyle Field at midnight, yelling their hearts out in preparation for the next day’s football game. Imagine a school that proudly wallows to be in possession of the nation’s largest campus with an enrollment of 48,000 plus students from all 50 states and 130 foreign countries; what you get is Texas A&M University.
    Founded in 1876 as the first collegiate institute of Texas with 40 students and six faculty members, the school has blossomed into one of the finest educational establishments in the United States. Ranked 61st by US News and World Report, A&M was one of the prominent feeder schools for the United States militia during the World Wars with more than 20,000 Aggies enlisted during World War II. Since then, it has developed into an academically and athletically prominent university. With thriving engineering and agricultural programs, Texas A&M University truly lives up to its name; ranked in the top three in the United States for both majors, first and third respectively, A&M is often mentioned as part of the renowned “Southern Ivies”.
    Sure engineering and agriculture might not be exactly your cup of tea, but Texas A&M has over 800 officially recognized school organizations with at least one that should be to your satisfaction. And for those power hungry individuals craving the opportunity to lead and make a difference, the Student Government Association consists of over 1,300 student members in three branches and multiple committees.
    With tuition floating around 8,000 dollars per year for Texas residents and 22,000 for out of state students, the school offers an affordable opportunity for students throughout the world. So if you know you want to escape your parents’ overly protective ways and yet, are too timid for the foreboding East Coast weather, perhaps Texas is the way to go. And who knows, you might even pick up a cute southern accent so Gig ‘Em Aggies.
