Texas A&M University Facts

Opened in 1876 as Texas' first public institution of higher learning, Texas A&M University is a research-intensive flagship university with more than 50,000 students — including 10,000 graduate students — studying in more than 120 undergraduate and 240 graduate degree programs in 16 colleges and schools. Students can join any of 800 student organizations and countless activities ranging from athletics and recreation to professional and community service events.

But there's more than just numbers that make up the Aggie experience. There's access to world-class research programs and award-winning faculty. There are opportunities to learn in and out of the classroom whether through technology or through one of our branch campuses or international study centers.

As any of the following sections show, Texas A&M is "developing leaders of character dedicated to serving the greater good."
