Texas A&M

Texas A&M University (called A&M), formerly the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, was an academy location. It was founded in the 1876 as the first public college in Texas. It has a rich military history, providing more commisioned officers to the United States Armed Forces than any other college other than United States military academies. It also was the first school to experiment successfully with cloning animals. As it is in Texas, the state where if at least one county does not hit temperatures of 100 or greater during the summer something is WRONG, it is air conditioned.Indeed!

Many a tipster was disappointed when he or she discovered it was an Academy, not a Center, site. Although this is not official, if you're a Center tipster and want to go to Texas, you might have been able to do that -- you had to call TIP (919-668-9100), but I know of a couple exceptions that have been made.

Texas A&M is no longer a TiP campus due to the destruction of Moses hall and troublesome internal affairs. RIP On a visit to Texas A&M immediately following the conclusion of Term 2, it was found that Moses Hall had not been demolished, and will be a co-ed dorm at the start of the 2015 school year. It's unknown whether Texas A&M will be a Duke TiP campus again.
