With a strong Corps of Cadets, a loud and proud student body, top-tier research, and first-class academics, Texas A&M University is a place like none other.
Texas A&M is dedicated to academics, research, and service. We have a vision of being considered one of the ten best public universities in America by 2020. And our people – you – are our most valuable asset in reaching that goal.
