We serve West Texas and the Panhandle. We call the communities in the top 26 counties of the Panhandle our home. Hard working people who value individual freedom, effort and dedication live here, and those values fill our campus with people who want to see others succeed and who dedicate themselves to this high calling. We do this in our classrooms, lecture halls, auditoriums for performances and visual arts, laboratories, our offices and conference rooms, and the arenas of competition where our student athletes compete.
We are a strong community. A family. I know you would love our Buff Spirit and enjoy becoming part of the WTAMU family community.
Thank you for your interest in WTAMU. Please know that we hold it dear, and we will do our best to productively serve you.
Dr. Walter Wendler, President
