From humble beginnings in 1876 as Texas' first public institution of higher learning, to a bustling 5,000-acre campus with a nationally recognized faculty,
Texas A&M University is one of a select few universities with land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant designations. With an enrollment of about half men
and half women, 25 percent of the freshman class are the first in their family to attend college. Here, 38,000-plus undergraduates and more than 9,000 graduate
students have access to world-class research programs and award-winning faculty. Texas A&M has two branch campuses, one in Galveston, Texas, and one in the
Middle Eastern country of Qatar.
