I have loved WTAMU since I started in 2014. I have already earned one degree there and am working on the second. The Agricultural Science building and its programs are UNMATCHED. If you are looking for a campus with staff that cares and a education you can be proud of WTAMU is your go to University! Go Buffs!

West Texas A&M University in Canyon, TX offers a friendly, small-college experience and at the same time a scenic campus and skilled professors. There's a bit of everything for every student of every major. I was a music major during my time here and the community was incredible, my professors were approachable and professional, and I was well-prepared for my field upon graduation.
I'd change a few things, including the housing situation. The only area the college could potentially change would be the dorm situation. Many are outdated, lack air conditioning, and cost more than they should to live in. The apartments and rental homes are similar to the dorms. There are very nice apartments, that cost a lot, and pretty bad apartments, that cost less but are still not worth what a resident will pay. My adoption of a large dog constricted my housing options even further. Aside from these couple of hiccups, my time at WTAMU was fantastic, and I recommend it to just about anyone.
Great University. Great academics. Very affordable for a great accredited degree. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. Proud to be a Buff.
