What Bert Has To Say About College Station-Bryan Metro Area

Bryan, a center for agriculture and light industry, is an average-sized town with a revitalized core and some historic interest. Bryan has grown together with the more notable College Station, home to Texas A&M University, the fourth largest university in the country with 45,000 students. As an A&M university, the school doesn’t bring the assortment of arts and cultural amenities one finds in some college towns, but the sports teams are popular and there is an active entertainment scene. Cultural and service amenities can be found in Austin, although it is a difficult 100-mile drive.
