I love WTAMU! I used to have my heart set on Texas A&M in College Station, but I attended one West Texas football game and I knew I wanted to be a Buff. At the game I was able to sit with the Buff Band and every band member was super nice and excited that I was looking into West Texas for my college education. I cannot wait to be a Buff.

West Texas A&M University is a great school. They have many social events and professors really care about the students learning. The staff and students are all very nice and caring. I would not choose any other school if I had the chance..
