Could be a good option with funding
Tips: Try contacting professors directly for part-time work as assistants, T. A or GA. culture-wise, especially in CS department you will find many more Indians as is to be expected, you won't unnecessarily feel out of place. University and other student bodies like IGSA, organise many socializing events to transition international students.

Great college, good opportunities in research labs and brilliant professors.
Tips: Apply for positions like Grade and assistantship, etc. ASAP as they fill up fast. Scholarships are usually given by the department for the first semester and subsequent scholarships are on an application basis. Extremely satisfied with the coursework and university.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Extremely approachable faculty, each faculty will have their own course structure. Need to research the faculty and subject before taking a course and unfortunately there is no forum for that, most of it will be done by interacting with students.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Taz restaurant is the only Indian restaurant around. Mostly cooking at home is preferred. Plenty of restaurant chains around and on the campus. The college is in a small town so finding ethnic food is tough. Few Arabic restaurants fill the void but mostly serve non-veg.

One of the best colleges in the United States
Tips: The college is a great place to be. The tuition and other college expenses are more than expected. I wouldn’t consider this an affordable university. I realized this after joining the college. Thesis students get in state scholarship offered by department.
Likes (Student Life): Students have full freedom while on campus which makes students comfortable trying out various things. The Recreational Center here is a major point because of the size and the number of activities that are allowed at the Center. There is huge number of on-campus events with lots of gifts and food.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There are Indian food markets available but they are quite far and require personal transport to travel which is difficult. There is a place called HEB which has most of the vegetables and general food. If you are looking for Indian food and vegetables then minimart and spice market are the options.

My experience regarding college was good, I am happy.
Tips: The opportunities offered and the curriculum is well structured. Research opportunities provided by faculty are too good. The lab equipment is highly developed and new. Scope for students to conduct research is good which highly encouraged me to recommend Texas A& M University.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Number of options of my origin country food is less. I need to cover far distances to get Indian food. Bus routes are not in that way so I need to book a cab and go to that store. As a student, it becomes difficult for one to bare those expenses. So my rating is 4
