7: Texas A&M is the state's first public institution of higher education. The school has a current student body of 50,000 and has more than 5,200 acres. Texas A&M is also among the nation's largest universities. Texas A&M owes its origin to the Morrill Act, approved by the United States Congress on July 2, 1862. This act provided for donation of public land to the states for the purpose of funding higher education. The State of Texas agreed to create a college under the terms of the Morrill Act in November 1866, but actual formation didn't come until the establishment of the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas by the Texas state legislature on April 17, 1871. A commission created to locate the institution accepted the offer of 2,416 acres of land from the citizens of Brazos County in 1871, and instruction began in 1876. Admission was limited to white males, and, as required by the Morrill Act, all students were required to participate in military training. Texas A&M underwent many changes in the 1960s under the presidency of Gen. Under his tenure the college diversified and began admitting women and minorities. Participation in the Corps of Cadets was also made voluntary. In 1963 the legislature renamed the school Texas A&M university, the "A" and "M" is a link to the school's past but no longer officially standing for "Agricultural and Mechanical". | History of Texas A&M
