Around Javelina Nation March 23, 2018-March 30, 2018

On Wednesday, March 28, students and organizations of Javelina Nation put together another wonderful Spring Fling! Despite concerns over potential rain, our Spring Fling weather was perfect! Thank you to all those who helped put together yet another wonderful event, as well as those who came out to show their support!

A&M-Kingsville student, George Chavarria, represented Javelina Nation in Washington D.C. on National Ag Day. He visited with Sonny Perdue, United States Secretary of Agriculture, during the celebration. Last summer, Mr. Chavarria worked at the USDA-Agricultural Research Service as a summer intern under the USDA-NIFA Hispanic Service Institute funding from Texas A&M University-Kingsville. He is one of five Animal Science students who were accepted into the Texas A&M University Department of Veterinary Medicine Vet School program for Fall 2018.

Memo for Students:

Environmental Engineering Graduate Program among Nation's Best:

The environmental engineering graduate program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville ranks among the top 100 in the nation, according to U.S. News and World Report.

The publication gave the program a #69 national ranking for 2019. This ties A&M-Kingsville’s environmental engineering graduate program with schools that include Dartmouth College, Marquette University and the University of Georgia, among others.

The statistical indicators that U.S. News and World Report uses to measure academic quality fall into seven broad areas: first-year student retention and graduation of students; peer assessment; faculty resources; admissions selectivity; financial resources; alumni giving; and graduation rate performance, which is the difference between the proportion of students expected to graduate and the proportion who do.

Texas A&M-Kingsville named 17th best master's degree in electrical engineering:

The program at Javelina Nation is only one of two from the state of Texas included in the 35-school list with Texas Tech University coming in at 23rd. The top three programs in the nation are at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University and Cornell University.
