Haitham Al-Haidari:My Maroon Journey



One of Texas A&M University traditions is The Ring. It is a ring that seniors obtain and wear and become recognized in years after wherever they go. People become very proud when they receive that ring. However, from the first time I knew about Texas A&M University at Qatar, I really desired very much wearing the T-shirt that has Texas A&M University at Qatar. It felt like ten rings on my hand.




We have had three days of orientation, ten hours a day with all meals provided – delicious meals. Not only did the orientation team present an outstanding picture about the university, but also they succeeded in making us feel what is to be an Aggie (the cool name of students and staff members of Texas A&M University). The sense of one family, one spirit, and one pride was filled in us, and was at its climax every time they mentioned the class of 2015 and we screamed out loud with our wildcat “A’aaaaay.”







“You are the most excited freshman. I like that” an orientation leader told me. But why would not I be excited? I was hyped in a matter of fact. It was an exciting event, and everyone was enjoying it. I did too, especially all the free things we were given including the laptops. I have been waiting for this opportunity for two years now. And when it came, I was the most hyped, most excited student in the group and I didn’t want to miss any second.



The international students were another fascinating facet provided in the environment of Texas A&M University at Qatar. I have met people from other religions, other cultures, and other parts of the world. I have met people who had no idea about where I come form – Yemen, and thus it was exciting to talk about my country. I have met people with very different accents, and the most interesting ones were those who were very hard to understand what they were saying, and I was just shaking my head as if I understood.

The building of TAMUQ was one of the few things that captivated me and made me and will always make me brag about my university TAMUQ everywhere I go.

As for the short description of what I have been in, I would say that we, freshmen, were handled to professional hands that made sure we adore TAMUQ before we start the hard classes. They succeeded. And here we are on our first weekend, looking forward to being the Aggies who all the people in the whole world will look up to.

I congratulate myself, my fellow freshmen, the administration of TAMUQ, and envy the coming freshmen of the next year of all the spoiling they will receive.
