What I Love About WT: Everyone at WT, and Canyon for that matter, are so friendly and polite! They welcome anyone into their community with open arms. If you're around campus, there's always someone willing to help. That's something you don't see often at many campuses. Also, the fact that WT has the perfect location...in a small town like Canyon, the only thing you can do is focus on school, but if you ever need anything or want to do something fun, Amarillo is just a few miles away.
Why I'm Excited to be a Coordinator: I'm excited to work with my RAs to provide a fun, friendly atmosphere at Stafford Hall and to help our residents make WT a home away from home. I love being able to be part of their college experience and to help them create unforgettable memories. Most of all, I'm excited to see growth...as a Coordinator, I get to see both our residents and our RAs grow. Knowing that, in some way, I was a part of that growth is rewarding.

What I Love About WT: I love how no matter where you go, you see a friendly face or a friendly smile. The size is also great!...small enough to walk anywhere and be there in five minutes. And the professors are great! Even in your biggest class, it's still smaller than Tech or UT. The professors are easy to access and fun to get to know!
Why I Love Living On Campus: It's so much easier to get involved. You have the opportunity to be in a lot more extracurricular activities and it's so much easier to meet new people! It is also great because if you have friends who live in other halls, even the farthest one away is like a seven minute walk! Living on campus really changed me from being super introverted to a weird extrovert, so it really helped me become a more outgoing person.
Why I'm Excited to be an RA: I'm so excited because my fellow RAs have really helped me get more involved and excited about WT. I get to bring people together and help them the way my RAs helped me. I also have the perfect opportunity to get to know other residents that I would never have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. I look forward to helping residents realize that WT is their second home!

What I Love About WT: WT is one of the best academic choices I've made thus far. It's a small campus with a big campus feel and it's filled with Professors and Faculty that want you to succeed!
Why I Love Living On Campus: Living on campus is the most convenient place to live for a busy student like myself. I don't have to worry about finding parking every morning, I have a built-in support system, there is always something going on in the hall or on campus, and almost all my friends live within 100 feet of me, so I'm never without something to do or someone to hang out with.
Why I'm Excited to be an RA: I'm excited to help create memories for residents in my hall and to be a part of creating a community that people can't wait to come home to every year!!!
