Students at the Higher Education Center at McAllen have a unique opportunity to earn an engineering degree from Texas A&M University while living in a thriving, close-knit community in the Rio Grande Valley. Check out Kassie’s vlog where she shares a glimpse into life at Higher Education Center at McAllen!
When I was applying to Texas A&M, I was very worried about starting classes. Being a woman in STEM can be an intimidating career path, but I didn’t want to let my fears overcome me. That’s when I got the offer to be a part of the Engineering Academy, and I was relieved. This program was the best pathway for transitioning to a noticeably big school. It made me feel more included in classes and it has many benefits.
I didn’t grow up in Texas so before coming to college, I had no idea what Texas A&M was like. I had never been on campus visits before and I didn’t know people who went here. So the moment I landed in College Station, surprises started unraveling.

Many freshmen come in knowing what they want to major in; however, most utilize their freshman year to find their passion. I always knew that I wanted to pursue computer science (CS). This post is not about why I love this engineering major, but about how Texas A&M makes me love it even more. So if you’re a freshman coming into Texas A&M next semester and you don’t yet know which island in the vast ocean of engineering you want to inhabit, I hope this article enlightens you about most of the opportunities in computer science.
I was lucky to have all things go in the right direction since the day I started my grad school career. However, there’s no debating how important and better it is to have a plan in place over just being lucky. So, here are my top five tips to be considered during your preparation process for grad school.
As I finish my last semester in college, I have begun to reminisce about all the things I have learned and the people I have met over the years. These have been some of the most fulfilling yet hardest years of my life, and I have learned more than I could have ever imagined. I am extremely grateful for all the things I’ve been through, but there are a few things I wish I knew as a freshman.
If you would have asked me my senior year of high school if I would be an Aggie engineering student, I would have laughed… But here I am, getting ready to graduate from Texas A&M with my engineering degree. As I reflect on lessons learned through my transfer experience, there are ten things that come to mind.

I am currently a junior studying petroleum engineering and, looking back at my high school years, this is not at all what I thought I would be doing. I looked at several business schools and I also considered a career in law until I learned about engineering and the numerous disciplines it offers. I remember getting excited about endless career possibilities, but at the same time confused about which discipline to choose.
Apprehension, excitement, uncertainty: I felt it all when I thought about becoming an Aggie. This was one of the most terrifying yet most rewarding decisions of my life.
