The Princeton Review annually ranks universities and colleges in different categories through surverys given to students. While the merits of such rankings can certainly be debated, they do sell a lot of magazines and also push college administrators to aim for the "good" rankings. Here are the categories that Texas A&M found itself in this year.
I don't think the rankings are accurate in several categories (e.g., while there is a definitive conservative base, the #1 status it is more by reputation than reality - there are much smaller private Catholic and Christian schools that are more conservative).
Texas A&M University Rankings:
#1 Most Conservative Students
#5 Best College Newspaper (in terms of popularity)
#6 Best Athletic Facilities
#13 Most Religious Students
#14 Students Pack the Stadiums
#14 Future Rotarians and Daughters of the American Revolution
#15 Alternative Lifestyles Not an Alternative
#16 Jock Schools
#19 Class Discussions Rare
