'''Texas A&M University''' is a university in the University System of Texas. Located in [[College Station]], [[Texas]], it was established in 1871 as a military school. Texas A&M began life as an agricultural, vocational school, but has become a respected university. A&M has many rich traditions, and also is one of very few moderate, or possibly even conservative, institutions of higher learning, owing to a large-scale educational bias against conservatives.  The Princeton Review ranked it as the most conservative school in the nation in 2009.  Texas A&M produces more US officers than any other university, aside from the military academies.
