College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't know for sure, I do not attend any parties...

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: We have called and talked on the phone numerous times to financial aid department. We are still waiting on my loans to be added to my account from last semester and now this semester, what a headache.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have way too many fast food restaurants, not enough healthy places to eat at. However they are all within walking distance and this is a good thing.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The movie theater is great to have access to, 8 miles away and discounts for all students are a plus. Palo Duro Canyon is fun hike and see the scenery. Shopping could be better we travel to surrounding towns for all our shopping needs.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus strictness is very much enforced, parking tickets will and have been issued if rules are broken. Teachers keep authority in and around the classrooms. RA's make sure the volume stays down and we have everything we may need.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The rules set by campus are fair and justifiable. This is a dry campus and town and drinking is not allowed on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Staff members are helpful through the process but sometimes getting the paperwork can be a hassle

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The parties that are campus and university based aren't bad. I'm not as sure about parties including alcohol and drugs because I don't attend those types of parties.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not part of Greek life because it is too expensive to join but the friends I have that are a part of Greek life love it.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I did not encounter any problems being admitted into the program. Everyone is very nice and giving here.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy it because I get to meet new people. The school has job opportunities on campus and everyone is here to help

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not the most athletic person so I'm not the best to judge but their are plenty of opportunities for students to join in on athletics.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The school always has something happening, so there are plenty of opportunities to meet fellow mates.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: "If your parents are doing well, then we can't help you" That is what I was told after explaining that my parents are not helping me with school.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is well kept and they have a museum that is probably the best in the panhandle.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The university does not regulate you to death besides the live off-campus rule they are fine.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The good thing about the universities location is that it is relatively close to a much larger city so ease of access for quality food is just a 30 minutes drive away.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: The feds need to get their act together. I applied for FAFSA and everything, but due to federal regulation tax information cannot be released directly to the university. I understand the security issues, but retrieving my tax information from the IRS made me extremely "pissed" off.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity is a rather annoying topic. Most students can care less how different other students are. We are simply there for an education or those of us who actually care anyway.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is plenty of housing available all around the City of Canyon. I recommend staying in the dorms though unless you live near the campus because even though the dorms are still rather expensive it is probably still less than the cost of external housing.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: WTAMU is a close knit community and already have organizations to address the security problems. So it is not that big of an issue.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful and well kept. My only complaint is the forcing of students to live on campus under the age of 21.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: To my knowledge the career opportunities are great through the university. From what I hear they do not leave you to the dogs after you receive a degree.

5 College Junior

Athletics: West Texas A&M University has a superb athletic program. The best programs I have ever seen for a division II university.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I do not believe in the affirmative action mindset. Sorry...
