“After three full years of being a student at WTAMU, I’ve realized that it is the best university I could have chosen to attend.  I have gained valuable communication and leadership skills and knowledge by being a part of many organizations here at WT.  The professors and advisors in the College of Business have been supportive and truly care for the success of their students.  The great relationships that are established between students and professors definitely make our College of Business one of a kind.”~Angelica Pallares

“I love the culture at WT.  The last three years here at the university have not been easy, but my professors have always been there when I needed support.  When I struggle there is always a helping hand from everyone in the CIS department as well as the College of Business.  The outstanding faculty at WT have all helped coach my education, but their lessons have gone beyond the classroom.  I have grown both personally and professionally thanks to the committed faculty; I owe my success to them.”~James Schmidt
