At West Texas A&M University, we challenge you to do more than tour campus to learn where buildings are located. We want you to experience what makes WTAMU great by taking a “WT Test Drive.”
Choosing a university is like buying a car. You would never buy a car without a test drive, so why choose a university without visiting the campus? The “Test Drive” is an important step in the process of choosing a university.
To schedule your visit, fill out the Campus Tour form
