West Texas A&M University Reviews
WTAMU is a great place for a distance education as well as local college experience! There are wonderful professors who actually care about the students. They are very approachable and fair. There is a good selection of online classes available for those who want to pursue an online degree, although most of their majors do require some face to face time. Occasionally the communication from the financial aid department is a bit confusing and can be inconsistent, but they are always willing to help if you have a problem. I would highly recommend checking out this campus for your educational future.
I love being at WT a lot. New Student Orientation was amazing. Everyone was having fun and connecting with each other. The campus is absolutely beautiful at WT. My Nusing Professor is such a wonderful and caring person. Everyone was so nice and always said how much they were glad for us to be there. I havent started school yet, but I cant wait to see what my future at WT has in store for me!
I am a transfer student at WT, and the transition was super easy! I also lived on campus my first semester, and the resident halls are so inviting and the residential assistance are very helpful and caring. There are always events going on, on campus, and they're great ways to meet people. Everyone is so friendly! I love my campus!
