More Aggies are set to travel across the pond as the result of an increased partnership between Texas A&M and Swansea University.

Swansea Chancellor Rhodri Morgan, former first minister of Wales, and Vice-Chancellor Richard Davies, spent all day in College Station as part of a four-day Texas university tour, which included Rice and The University of Texas. The focus of the initiative is to foster research projects in areas such as biomedicine, biotechnology and nanotechnology.

    "Employability of graduates worldwide these days depends on you having shown that you're not a homeboy or girl who completely collapses if taken out of the environment that you're familiar with,"

    I think Swansea's chancellor is greatly mistaken. Every Aggie I've know has jumped at the opportunity to work abroad IF they can find a better opportunity. However, many graduates realize that the salaries combined with the cost-of-living here in Texas are almost impossible to beat anywhere else. I'm staying in Texas until someone can offer me more net money and benefits to leave.
