The first public college in the state—and now, the largest—Texas A&M University is a destination of choice for top students, faculty, and staff from around the world.
For students, this means leadership opportunities as well as academic excellence. While on campus, they can get involved with any of more than 1,100 student organizations, including The Big Event, the nation’s largest, student-run day of community service. They also can explore the world through global work and volunteer opportunities, as well as the largest public university study abroad program in the nation.
In addition, more Aggies graduate on time and with less college-related debt than most peers at other institutions, and typically earn more at mid-career. Texas A&M also leads the nation in the number of alumni CEOs in the Fortune 100.
For faculty and staff, a career at Texas A&M means being associated with the only Texas university on the National Science Foundation’s top twenty list for research expenditures, with more than $1.13 billion in fiscal year 2020.
And College Station—located in the heart of the Houston-Dallas-Austin triangle—is consistently ranked among the nation’s top small cities in terms of growth, economic opportunity, and quality of life.
