West Texas A&M University Reviews
My online learning experience has been exceptional. The communication with professors and advisors is easy, fast and effective. I get quick responses and nearly immediate assistance whenever I reach out with questions or concerns about my classes or degree plan. WTAMU has made the online transition smooth and easier than I could have hoped for!
West Texas A&M has a beautiful campus with lots to do. There seems to be a new activity/event everyday. The campus always remains clean and surrounded with kind people. WT offers lots of help if your struggling with your academics, social life, or even money. The tailgates are always fun with lots of food and activities such as corn hole. From my experience living on campus you get to meet so many people from so many places that you become friends with. I highly recommend to be active with all the school activities college can be lonely, go out and meet people!
All my classes are called "Hyflex Courses" which means that half of the course goes in person one day while the other half is online, and then vise versa the next day. The professors are still trying to get a handle on all the new technology and having the classes split, but so far my online experience has been great! The professors are great communicators.
