FACTION: FRESHMEN IN ACTION
About the Community
Join the FACTION. FACTION is a Living Learning Community for freshmen at Texas A&M University.
Benefit from a clustered living community of students experiencing college for the very first time – just like you. You will have access to campus resources and individualized support to assist you in your transition from high school to college, focusing not only on your academic success, but also on your emotional and social wellbeing. Participants get the feel and attention of being in a smaller community while benefiting from the resources of our large university! By being a part of FACTION, you will develop skills, attitudes, and work habits essential to success.
To be a participant in FACTION, participants must:
- Be a first year, first time (traditional freshman) student at Texas A&M University
- Be committed to participating in FACTION activities and events
- Be an engaged member of the community
We are calling freshmen (first-year, first-time) students to action, to take control of their situations, to take advantage of the many opportunities that exist here at Texas A&M University and within the Department of Residence Life, and to become holistically developed, global citizens. This call is organized through a structured model in which FACTION students will participate. Programs, events, and activities will be focused on the following topics, as will marketing and recruitment efforts:
Auto-assigned to a room within Walton Hall based on roommate questionnaire, including roommate preferences. Then, there will be a time period specified in the acceptance letter for members to change their room assignment within Walton Hall via the myHousing Portal – if desired.
