I think that WTAMU was a great experience for me. I moved to the Amarillo area to a relocation of my husband for work. It was also a less expensive way to obtain my degree and online classes were not available so i had limited choices. The professors were very helpful and knowledgeable and set me up for great success in my career. I am proud of my degree at WTAMU

West Texas A&M was an amazing university to attend. The small class sizes and small campus lead to a very hometown feeling. The professors were always more than willing to work with you and help you outside of class time. They would make sure you understand the content and were getting the most of your education. The education department was fantastic and left me feeling super prepared to lead my own classroom.
