Crime Scene Investigator
@ Texas A&M
I chose Texas A&M because they have a program in Forensic and Investigation Sciences which I am looking to do in the future because I want to pursue a career as a CSI Agent. That degree is the only bachelor’s degree in the state of Texas that is nationally accredited by the Forensic Science Education Programs Accreditation Commission (FEPAC).
Texas A&M opened in 1876 as Texas' first public institution of higher learning. Texas A&M is a university known for its rich traditions and rich history and is among the nation's largest universities with a current student body of more than 50,000 and a physical campus of more than 5,200 acres. The official mascot of Texas A&M is a collie named Reveille, also known as the First Lady of Aggieland. The school colors are maroon and white, and their current president is Dr. Mark A. Hussey.

Student Organizations play an important role in campus life at Texas A&M.There are over 800 organizations such as the Aggie Forensic Investigative Science Organization which is one I would look forward to joining. There are many more organizations that fit your interest. Texas A&M has student activities such as Sports, Academics, Aggie Spirit such as traditions, The Memorial Student Center, and Campus Services.
My career Path
I want to become a Crime Scene Investigator because watching shows like Criminal Minds and CSI really got me hooked. After watching multiple shows i did some research and found what they do pretty fascinating and would be something i would enjoy doing.
After I graduate from high school I want to go to Texas A&M and study Forensic and Investigation Scientists or Criminal Justice. With my degree in either one and lots of training I can become a CSI agent also known as a Crime Scene Investigator.
