Our science majors are using the latest sonar technology to study the ocean bottom, counting whales in the Gulf of Mexico, traveling to Mexico to study aquatic life in underwater caves and spending time between semesters at SeaWorld caring for exotic animals. Our engineers are learning how to build undersea pipelines, bridges over waterways, and maritime machinery that will transport oil across the continents. Our business and transportation majors are preparing for careers in the ocean transportation industry, where international trade is the norm.
When Sea Aggies speak of "The Other Education," they are talking about leadership training, clubs, intramurals, Traditions, student government and all the other aspects of the TAMUG experience. Many elements converge to create the campus atmosphere: the student newspaper (NAUTILUS), the drama club, and more than 60 student organizations, which include academic, professional, community and campus service, religious, and just-for-fun student groups.
As would be expected, student life at TAMUG is often centered around the ocean. Many clubs and sports often involve water, but we have 27 active student organizations and 13 professional organizations involved in a wide variety of activities. The question is just finding the right organization, or organizations, for you!
