Since you're a GC superintendent if the job is to be the grounds superintendent I'd wager it's going to be a competitive position.

The campus is pretty nice.


If it being a HBCU is worrisome it probably wouldn't be a good fit for either anyways

Not worried about race or affiliation, I've worked in some REALLY awful towns. Just never knew the history, didnt do my homework. Still interested in the gig, not sure they'll be interested in me is all

Actually the Chancellor of the A&M System has said it is the BEST looking campus of all 11 schools in the system. I agree if that is worrisome probably not a good fit for ya......even though the university has almost 40% other races enrolled.

No idea why they would not be interested in someone with credentials that are above reproach and have certifications proving they are well versed.
The history was not by choice it was where we were as a country in 1876.......a form of "separate but equal".........thus both Land Grant Universities chartered on the same day in 1876. (Instead of one university for everyone!)

Can't speak for other's, only for myself.

My comment was kind of 2 fold.

1. It's from a wikipedia site, and we all know the history with information contained on there.
2. Just providing information that may or may not have been known about the school, which was what was asked for by OP.

Nope, just never knew the history, as I said already. With what I read, they may not be ready for me!

I like the campus but the area of Texas is not my favorite. If I had my pick of A@M campus it would be Port A.

Oscar it is part of the Corpus campus. UT also has a nice research facility in Port Aransas. I think the A@M location is referred to as the Shrimp.

Are you applying for a job or doing GC work for them? I have always said that the campus is beautiful. We are just finishing a job there as a contractor. I think they are fair to work for in that aspect. Their inspections are a little tough, but if I was paying what these buildings cost, I’d be tough too. Don’t know anyone that works there on a daily basis.

Did a college visit last week at A&M - Commerce. Was nice and all, but don't sound near as good as what Prairie View sounds like. Good luck.

I went to college there. Had a minority scholarship. Unfortunately I did not finish. Still live in the area. My sons high school graduation was there last year in the Baby Dome. The campus is really nice.
