  • 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 2019 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.
