Find your Anchor! Anchor Camp welcomes First Year Islanders to Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi each year for the purpose of giving them an opportunity to learn more about what it means to be an Islander in a fun, laid-back atmosphere.

Finding Your Anchor is an expression we use to explain finding your place in college. To find your anchor means to find your home away from home. Your anchor is there to help you when you need it and to keep you grounded when college life gets rough. You can find your anchor in many different ways. For some, it may be a student organization, friends, family, faith, etc. It’s all about what you feel you need in your life to help you through college. We are here to help you find your anchor and teach you about Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi along the way!
