  • Sophomores and Juniors in high school will learn about the great opportunities for them by choosing WT
  • High School seniors who are weighing the options of higher education will learn why WT should be their first choice
  • Transfer students can find the services and departments most important for their transfer needs 
  • Admitted students for spring, summer and fall 2018 can take advantage of an in-depth look into their new home away from home, with sessions planned just for them

Everyone benefits from a visit to campus during Discover WT. Take a look at the interactive map for help navigating campus.

Additionally, you can tour our beautiful campus, get a taste of BUFF life and experience firsthand what current Buffs are raving about!  Discover WT is a lot of fun, PLUS you'll get  information about admission to WTAMU, areas of study, financial aid, living on campus, student activities and so much more.
