The facilities were, as I recall, almost completely located within structures on the campus built out of bricks. It had a very old-school look that way. Some of those buildings had air conditioning, while others did not, and were equipped with windows that could be opened, and fans that could move the warm air about, and the students would pretend that this was "cooling".

CURRICULUM FOCUS
Texas A & M University-College Station Business Program
UDC Contributor

Back in 1876, farmers who enrolled in the agricultural degree programs at Texas A&M University-College Station got the opportunity to take business classes, such as creamery management and bookkeeping. These courses helped them learn about the commercial end of working the land. From these humble beginnings, the school and students alike increasingly saw the benefits of business education at the school. More and more of these classes were added to the institution’s roster in subsequent years, which eventually led to Texas A&M opening the Mays Business School. Today, more than 5,000 graduate and undergraduate students are enrolled—and whether they aspire to work on the farm or in the office, the education they receive promotes high standards for business leadership. In 1990, the Mays Business School opened its Center for International Business Studies to provide students with a worldwide business perspective that prepares them for the realities of the global marketplace. Through the Center, students are able to participate in study abroad business programs, as well as international internships. In addition, the Center offers international business courses and certificate programs. Other business centers at Mays include the Center for Retailing Studies, the Center for Human Resource Management, the Real Estate Center, and the Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship.

Micah
Civil Engineering, Class of 2012

U My favorite thing about Texas A&M academically is that every class, regardless of subject matter, made certain to incorporate and instill “larger-than-myself” lessons throughout the duration of the course. Each class had some element focusing on integrity—doing the right thing because it is right—rather than simply teaching ethics and asking that I adhere to industry or corporate rules. Service and how I should use my education to improve my surroundings, my community, and the lives of others as a whole was another common theme. And with integrity and service, one has the makings of a great leader—which is what was expected from every student in all of my classes. I was certainly taught the content within the textbooks each semester by extremely gifted and accomplished professors—but theories and practices change. Thankfully, the professors at Texas A&M chose to go beyond the textbook by preparing me to be a leader and use my strengths for the benefit of others, all the while doing the right thing. Those lessons will remain constant regardless of textbooks, how theories or practices change, and line of work I choose to pursue.

Industrial Engineering, Class of 2014

U Texas A&M has a great reputation academically, and as a young girl wanting to study engineering, it was hard to find a better school. What I enjoyed most was that many of my professors came from industry. Often the complaint of college students is that they’ll never use what they learn in the “real world.” Professors who had worked for big companies were able to make abstract topics real and relatable to what we would need after graduation. My classes over my five years at Tex
