Reagan - 12/22/2020

WT is one of the greatest places a student that grew up in a small town can attend. It has the family-like atmosphere, small town feel, and is full of genuine and hardworking people. WT is a great place to be, especially if you are pursuing a degree in agriculture.

Jesenia - 12/12/2020

I absolutely love West Texas A&M (or as we just call it, WT). It is a small campus with a community feel, but many opportunities. WT takes pride in their academic programs, with several majors to choose from that have strong departments. WT professors are genuine and wish to see their students be successful. WT is also an affordable university; despite the low tuition costs, this university has a beautiful campus that is always sponsoring student lead activities. If I had it to all over again, I would definitely choose WTAMU.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    First of all, to students, know what you are going to be doing(majoring or minoring) for college. That will narrow down the results for the type of college/university you want to look into. Most colleges are known for prodigious programs, such as sports, the arts, law, medical fields, etc. Once you know that, visit your selected colleges, take your parents/guardians with you (this really helps for they are your greatest support) walk the campuses, speak with the dean of the school, and learn as much as you can. You will find your niche if you really know what YOU want. Next, apply for your college early! Plan ahead! Never wait. By doing things early you will be the first choice. First come, first serve. Universities love it when you have all the information down. Next, apply for scholarships-lots of them. If you are in financial need, scholarships really help. Find positive and legal ways to secure your admission. College is amazing. You grow to be on time, more organized, more socially active, and you learn to be yourself most of all. Times do get busy with your studies, but everything is totally and COMPLETELY worth it.

    The best thing about my school is that it is big enough to do what it needs in order to teach students to create an effective and successful career, but still small enough to allow students the many opportunities that would be so easily missed at a larger school.
