Texas A&M International University has received a huge distinction. Named by a national news organization last week as one of the most affordable universities in the country. In the study CNN showed how TAMIU, dollar for dollar, gives a student a quality education at an affordable price. TAMIU President, Doctor Ray Keck, says that the university can keep an already low state tuition even lower through endowments and scholarships. He adds it makes for an educational experience that is both affordable and exceptional.
