What are the top five colleges in Texas to study Agriculture?
Who knows what the top five colleges anywhere in anything are?
But I'll give you three suggestions to start with. Texas A&M
Texas Tech Tarleton State Consider what you want out of your
education. A&M and Tech are, of course, BIG schools. Your
colleagues will likely be among the best students in the field.
You'll probably take basic undergraduate classes, like chemistry,
in giant lecture halls with hundreds of other students. You might
find that your professors are more interested in their research
than in their undergraduate students. If you are looking to become
connected to an upper echelon of researchers, that might be what
you want. Tech's not as big as A&M, and the institution isn't
obsessed with keeping up with UT-Austin, so it probably is less of
a meat grinder. You'll get a lot more personal attention from less
famous professors at a smaller school like Tarleton. You might or
might not be challenged to stretch yourself as much, but you're
much less likely to get lost in the crowd. My experience at
Tarleton (in engineering) was that professors would stop me walking
down the hall or across campus and ask what I was up to. And really
want to know the answer. That's been 25 years. Things might have
changed. I transferred to A&M after my sophomore year, and
found that to be an excellent balance between the two: small when
there was a risk of getting lost and large when I needed the
specialized resources of a large campus.
