You may remember the Homecoming bonfire or wearing a beanie to class as a freshman. Maybe you remember when West Texas State became West Texas A&M University or when the classroom center was called the ‘banana building.’ What used to be a road through campus is now the beautiful Vaughan Pedestrian Mall featuring a marble statue of our valiant mascot.
Some things have changed but so much remains the same. Maroon is still everyone’s favorite color. Generations of students remember late nights, laughter and studying in the dorms. The fight song still rings out at athletic events and across campus each day from the Hayward Clock Tower. Students and alumni proudly display the WT hand sign any time a camera is near.
Share your greatest WT memories by adding a class note or search and check out others below. We’d love to know the traditions you remember, the memories you made and why being a Buffalo is special to you.
The pride today’s students have in “being a Buff” is as strong as our buffalo mascot and the value in having a degree from WT has never been greater.
