Student Reviews and Ratings for Texas A & M University-Texarkana

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

A & M is still using old legacy Blackboard for its online stuff. This will hurt your students badly... Online exams don’t allow backtracking to review old questions, like any good student does in face-to-face exams. There are no networking features like you’d find in Canvas; taking away a key benefit of attending a University. Blackboard is just old and clunky and has strange failures for no reason; it’s known to crash constantly with mobile devices. Imagine going to the library and finding Windows XP. At a supposedly state of the art university?!?! Community colleges are running Canvas, What’s up with this place? I think A&M is slowly settling into its grave, like Sears and Kmart and all the old dinosaurs.

Overall Rating:

The school is trash. The food is garbage, the prices in the general store are ridiculous. You don’t have many options as far as delivery is concerned. The food only looks good when there’s a campus tour so they can make you think the food is good. They don’t show you the inside of the rooms or how everything runs because the sinks are always backed up. The shower is terrible, the water pressure is horrible. Don’t bother asking maintenance for help, they’ll take three weeks to get there. The rooms are cold and you can’t change the temperature because it’s controlled by Texas A&M at College Station. If they told you that you were supposed to room with one other person, they lied. The parking is terrible but they won’t fix that because they’re too focused on buying a golf course, good job Jackasses. Save your money, your gas and time, don’t come here.

This is my 4th and final year at this university pursuing my Bachelor's. The atmosphere is quiet and rural, but still within driving distance to anything you could need. The cafeteria food is hit or miss, but has improved in recent years. Student life hosts all kinds of events and activities, but campus life can feel slow at times. Professors are kind and patient to take time if you need any help after class or during office hours. Definitely a more affordable education than most other universities in Texas! I have enjoyed my time and experiences here at TAMUT.

I'm from Houston, TX. If you want a solid college of business with good professors and staff then A&M - Texarkana is the place to be. I came in as a freshman the Fall of 2015 with mediocre high school grades and this school has turned my life around. I have gained more leadership and management skills then I could have ever expected. My expected graduation is Spring of 2019. (That is a three year graduation) The student success center and tutors are constantly available for FREE! If you are driven- You can excel here!

Overall Rating:

I have been a student at Texas A&M University - Texarkana since graduating high school in 2012. I would not change it for anything. Even though I had thoughts about transferring schools for more of the college experience like football and track. I just fail to believe I would have the same experience if I was to leave. The small class size is a win plus the fact that professors actually take the time to help you. The Enrollment service department as well as the Business Office is an extreme help when it comes to paying for school and getting registered. The Resident Hall is a WIN with the apartment style living and FREE laundry! I love my college and I am happy I picked this University to attend. I would highly recommend anyone to come and check us out or attend!
