The Texas A&M Foundation interviewed school alum and ‘American Idol’ star , asking the singer about his experience at the school, his major there, how the school prepared him for his music career and ended up with a few of his favorite things around campus.

“You know, it’s a dream of mine to finish my degree,” Jason said. “I have quite a few hours to go, so maybe one day when it all slows down. I keep thinking, maybe some online classes here and there, chipping away at it, but I would definitely love to get my degree, it would mean a lot.”

As for his major, Jason said, “I ended up in the college of landscape architecture, I spent one semester in that, so I don’t really know what I would do at the moment, if I were to finish. I pretty much have an open playing field.”

Questioned about how his A&M experienced prepared him for what he’s doing now, Jason said, “My time here was really a big shaping time for my life. The people I met here and also this is where I started playing guitar and singing and playing out around town, so who knows how it would have happened elsewhere. There was definitely a lot of great people here to encourage me and the music and I had a lot of musician friends around here, and also the Aggie Men’s Club and some great friends that really shaped my character and I think prepared me to handle this thing I’m doing, so I’m very thankful.”
