30. Texas A&M University Texarkana
Texas A&M University at Texarcana is just one of several public schools that are joined within the Texas A&M system statewide. And yet, Texarcana is within close proximity to residents not just of Texas, but of Louisiana and Arkansas as well. Although the school’s stature is characteristic of a large research university, it seeks to emulate the close-knit communities more often found at smaller schools. First Year students in particular receive special attention through initiatives like the FYE Monthly Social and the Eagle Passport – a fun way to keep track of your “travels” around campus and participation in school-sponsored events and organizations.
