CANYON, Texas — The final tally is 1,110 graduates for West Texas A&M University’s Class of May 2023.

The oldest graduate was 66, and the youngest were 18. The graduating class includes 108 with a perfect 4.0 GPA and 81 veterans; 45 percent of the undergraduates are the first in their family to earn a college degree. Students from 37 states in the nation and 26 different countries graduated.

Additionally, 193 potential August graduates walked the stage at the May commencement ceremonies.

Graduates include those on the Dean's List (overall grade point average of 3.50 to 3.99) and on the President’s List (a 4.0). The three levels of honor recognition are Summa Cum Laude (3.90-4.00), Magna Cum Laude (3.75-3.89) and Cum Laude (3.50-3.74).

A student-centered approach of recruiting and retaining the very best is part of the University’s long-range plan, WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World.

That plan is fueled by the historic, $125 million One West comprehensive fundraising campaign. To date, the campaign — which publicly launched in September 2021— has raised more than $125 million and will continue through 2025.
