Whether WT makes you think of open plains and beautiful sunsets, or cattle drives and cowboy boots, one thing you'll find deep in the heart of every West Texan is a love of family, country and a great football game. 

Join us for a week of activities celebrating Buffalo Pride, the history of WT and the spirited heart of West Texans.
