Facts about the Community

Texas A&M University is located in the twin cities of Bryan and College Station, home to about 170,000 residents.

Its regional airport provides commercial flights to neighboring cities.

As a regional health care hub, the area has three hospitals, numerous medical specialists and several retirement and assisted living facilities.
