For me this school is the greatest! It's a very personable university with a staff that truly cares for its students. The classes pertaining to your major typically has a maximum of 25 students, so students are able to build relationships with their professors. The campus is only about a square mile, making it easy to make those early morning classes that you almost missed your alarm for. The town of Canyon is very supportive of WT and WT returns that support through community service and aiding the local schools. The campus is also culturally diverse; it contains many religious groups that connect with one another and many of the student athletes are from all across the world.

I first learned of the WTAMU music program from attending the TMEA (Texas music educator's asso.) conferences with my junior college music department. Visiting with the professors from that school made me feel that it would be a good fit for me. The info. I gleened as in size of the school, the teacher's focus and their experience with musicians like me who started late in this particular instrument, made me change my mind on the school I would attend. I applied to the school, did an audition and waited to see what happened with financial aid from FAFSA processing to music dept. scholarships. The first real challenge I encountered was not receiving any college scholarship only PELL grant. Thank God for Pell! I had unknowingly not applied for the individual college scholarships, thinking the FAFSA was to do it all. This was the case at my community college. So my advice is to read everything you can on the admissions websites and also talk directly to financial aid at the school to be sure you have done everything toward this process. Not all websites are user friendly either, so call directly if you aren't sure about things.

All internships, part time/ full time jobs, alumni network and recruitment on campus are high. The opportunities that are available on and off campus are incredible! The tight niche community allows for current and past students to become involved with something bigger than themselves. The sky is not our limit, we have opportunities of a life time and we just have to be brave enough to take them.
