What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
Take a tour of the campus and meet the awesonme staff.
Get involved with a club.
Watch a WTAMU Buffs football game.
TREVOR from Aztec, NM
I would recommend getting plugged in. The university makes it so easy for new students to get involved because of all of the clubs they have. Once you're involved, you gain friends, but you also gain a support system that has helpful information about the university and their experiences.
I also recommend getting in touch with the financial aid and scholarship office as soon as possible because they will do everything to help you pay for college. The people within those offices are very understanding and helpful. If they can't help you, they probably know someone who can or ways to get you more money for college.
Keagan from Amarillo, TX
Break out of your shell and try something new!
Rebecca from Hobbs, NM
Start early, scholarships might go fast.
Gerald from Lubbock, TX
Great, they help you to pick the career you are looking for.
Miriam from Amarillo, TX
Visit with professors and don't be afraid to ask for help. They often are more than willing to extend the extra effort. Also, find and use study groups.
Caleb from Amarillo, TX
I advise you to come take a campus tour today. You can come for tours in the morning or afternoon of the campus and then also a tour of all of our residence hall tours in the afternoon. West Texas is one of the most inexpensive schools in Texas (tuition here is lower than the average of Texas college's.) I would also advise living in the dorms because there you meet so many great friends and make many great memories. We have something for everyone here at WT and would love to have you.
Jordun from Lubbock, TX
If you chose to apply here, know that people hold doors open for you, they smile at you (even people you don't even know!), and they actually treat you like a real person! :D
KaitlynN from Amarillo, TX
Some tips would be:
1. To ask people ahead of time for the best professors for each course.
2. Get to know your professors so they know you by name.
3. Always keep a positive attitude when meeting new people.
4. Not to take your entire room to school with you.
5 Get to know your RA's, most of them are great!
