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:
We have staff and events in place to help you build your strong foundation for being academically and socially successful here at Texas A&M.
Students will discover how their passions can meet their sense of purpose when considering future career opportunities.
During a specific period of time, students selected for this program will be able to choose a roommate(s) from other students selected for the same Living Learning Community. Students may post profiles within myHousing Portal and view responses by other students to their roommate questionnaire (i.e., sleep schedule, noise, cleanliness, etc.). Following this specific time period, students will be assigned a room with their requested roommate within the block of rooms designated for the Living Learning Community.
