If I was more of a design guy, I'd jump all over this.

Won't be any more than that, I wouldn't think.

I don't know that I'd call the BCS nightlife "active," but there are a handful of bars that cater to the A&M crowd that will keep you moderately busy if you're into that kind of thing. It's a good sports staff in a town that revolves around the Aggies. Which is its own chore, but then I'm a Baylor grad so living in the heart of Hell would be difficult.
