I only half a semester, I have fallen in love with the atmosphere of the campus. Everyone is welcoming from staff to students. They also have excellent facilities for learning and extracurricular activities, as well as many student lead activities to join.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university makes it one of its key points to show that your not just another student paying for an education, but one that matters individually. The professors are always available for helping you with your classes or directing you to other services that can help you outside of classes. The campus is always putting on events for you to meet new people, get involved with organizations, and setting you up with the necessary tools to succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

West Texas A&M University is a very low profile school to attend. There are opportunities to be the "big fish" on campus but it's also a good place to be if you just want to attend school and graduate. I have had a very good over all experience while attending here and have recommended it to other students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am in the AG department and it is wonderful. Other buildings however are small and cramped. A reoccurring problem I've seen in the older buildings are the desks. They are to small and stuffed into a class room. Larger students have issues with them. One girl dropped some classes because she couldn't fit in the desks. I suppose someone could stand during class but it's hard to feel comfortable in such a situation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy West Texas A&M, it provides a culture that I feel more apart of than anywhere else I have ever been to. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved on campus if a student wishes to do so, however, it is completely acceptable for a student to focus more on their studies and maintain their social groups.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

West Texas A&M University is a higher learning institution that promotes the well being of students on campus and off. While the dorms can be kind of small and expensive, the community found within them is unmatched. As with most colleges in Texas, football (sports in general) are the talk of the town and WT is no exception. WT just built a brand new football complex , which brings together not only those enrolled here, but the community in Canyon. WT is a small campus, and has been rated the 'second safest' college in Texas, second only to Tarelton. There are many resources on campus to make students feel safe, such as Victim Link and a student run organization known as Nightwatch. Overall, the safety on campus as well as in Canyon is paramount. The only thing I would change, is the fact that commuting into Amarillo is essential to everyday life. While there are some on campus jobs, most are not open to Freshman, and in turn that means that most of the community commutes out of Canyon and into Amarillo, Overall, WT is a safe, respectable, fun school that I would recommend to anyone I meet. GO BUFFS!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school, my major, and the people. However, the university is located in a small town where there is really nothing to do. Additionally, there is no public transportation, so in case of an emergency or if you need a ride somewhere, the only solution is carpooling with friends. In order to receive 5 stars, WTAMU should offer more activities on campus that would involve the community and make college life more fun because students get tired from studying all day and they need a fun break! Additionally, they should offer public transport at least to the important locations such as a supermarket, hospital, pharmacy, airport, etc. Other than that, I love WTAMU and how everyone is super nice!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WT is friendly, the food stays the same every week with the exception of holidays or when leftovers from catering events build up in the freezer, the newer dorms allow for a ton of privacy, the older dorms allow for more community, be careful if you have respiratory issues as some of the dorms have had issues in the past. As far as classes go, the ag program is geared more locally, the equine program is great for western people, all other programs are fantastic, the campus is beautiful year round though it is windy and cold most of the year, there are plenty of clubs to join and several friendly faces to get to know, professors are all personable and caring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is a great place to further your academic career. Texas A&M University is known for its traditions and excellence. They offer many majors to online students as well. They are very reasonably priced. They are among the top ten lowest priced universities in the country. I highly recommend WTAMU.
