About the Community

Freshmen Century Scholars attend MSC Open House with their mentor.The Century Scholars Living Learning Program is an opportunity for freshmen Century Scholars looking to be a part of a tight-knit community during their first year at Texas A&M. The programmatic goals of the Century Scholars Program are to develop scholars academically and holistically.

The Century Scholars Living Learning Program aims to strengthen the connections that Century Scholars have with each other and with the campus community. Students will be placed in small groups with whom they will take the freshman seminar course. The small group will have an upperclassman mentor who is there to help build the freshmen learning community and to act as a resource for Century Scholars freshmen in their first year at Texas A&M. The Century Scholars Living Learning Program is optional for incoming Century Scholars and has limited availability.

Student Stories

How lucky am I to be a Century Scholar? My freshman year at A&M was such a great experience thanks to the opportunities that the Century Scholars Program offers. The fall semester course, taken by all Century Scholars, was a stress-reliever and a class I thoroughly enjoyed! Compared to classes with 200-300 students, this class creates an intimate setting which helps in making friends!
