As a student selected for the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science you are joining a unique living-learning community designed to promote academic achievement and personal growth. The Student Life Department will assist each student in adjusting to and making the most of this experience. To maximize the TAMS experience, students are encouraged to get involved in all aspects of campus life. Involvement provides co-curricular opportunities that complete the academic process, foster student development and prepare all students for life beyond the university. The mission of the Student Life department is to establish and maintain a community living environment that is safe, fun, comfortable, accepting of diversity, and conducive to learning. This environment allows students to establish roots while at TAMS and after two years have a skill set that allows each student to prosper and excel at their next educational endeavor.
