I love West Texas A&M University! It is located in Canyon, TX. Canyon is a very calm town with just enough happening around it to keep you busy on and off campus. Once you step onto campus, you will find yourself feeling right at home. However, some parts of the dorms are under construction and that can be a slight hassle. Other than that, WTAMU is a great place to further your education!

West Texas A&M University is a great school. The campus is small, but very pretty. I have enjoyed being a student at West Texas A&M because the people are nice, and for the most part the class sizes are small. It also offers a great education for a more reasonable tuition cost compared to other schools. West Texas A&M University has great professors and gives their students a wonderful, peaceful environment to get their education in. They have a variety of opportunities for the students to take advantage of, both educationally and in the work field. WT really cares about their students and wants to see each one of us succeed. I really like that the library is accessible until midnight throughout the week. This has been very helpful for me because I get a lot of work done there. The school could use more parking, but other than that it is a university I would recommend.
I am beyond satisfied with my life at WT! It's super easy to get involved with activities on campus, and there's a great sense of community. I have made so many friends within my major, and I've heard it's just as easy to connect with peers in all the other majors too.
