Blake, a pre-med student, chose to attend Texas A&M University-Commerce because of its affordability and its close proximity to his home and family.
“What I like about Texas A&M University-Commerce is that it’s large enough to have a half-million dollar microscope, yet small enough that you can go down the walking mall, see someone you know.”
Blake values his university experience, and sees it as a great tool that will prepare him for a future medical career. Thanks to the tight-knit campus life and small, personal classroom experiences, Blake has had the privilege of building relationships with professors and fellow students alike.
Professors like Dr. John Paul Stovak have provided Blake with inspiration in the classroom to pursue his dream of becoming a pediatrician, providing him with valuable guidance and information. Classes like animal biology have also complemented Blake’s academic aspirations by challenging him to think critically and perform simple procedures.
Grateful for the foundation A&M-Commerce has provided, Blake is confident that the groundwork he has started here will help him achieve great things in the future.
“I’ve gotten so much more than just an education here,” Blake said. “I love this university.”
