    The TEEX complex was state of the art. You couldn't have asked for anything better.
    The sleeping quarters could have been better.
    The food was terrible.

    I believe the TEEX staff was on top of there game. It was the Learning-for-Life Staff that dropped the ball.

    I truly think Emmittsburg was a lot better. Through this truly was a great experience in Texas.
    I give Emittsburg 5 stars. Texas A&M 0000000000000000 stars.

    The dorms sucked. (anyone else wake up with peices of ceiling on them?) Buildings are in need of some serious work.

    The gentleman in the registration office was very helpful finding us stuff our rooms were missing.

    Food left something to be desired. It would have been nice to have a changing menu from day to day.

    The training field was sweet. Never seen anything like it. Would have liked to spend more time in Disaster City.

    There weren’t enough time slots to accommodate the everyone who wanted to do the individual events. I couldn’t get into any of them.

    The student center was nice to have.

    I still like the campus of the NFA much, much better. It was
    CLEAN, not falling apart, CLEAN, and had an awesome cafeteria.

    Unhappy yeah...

    I heard it wasnt that good...no live fire or anything for the explorers! Our post just held an explorer fire school, and i heard that ours was longer, cheaper and we had live fire drills for all the kids including LP and it was we got shirts, hats, waterbottles, and gear bags!
