Buffalo Courts Alumni Center

Buffalo Courts has been home to the WTAMU Alumni Association and Campus Tours for several years, but the rock and limestone structure first served as a dormitory for WT athletes.

In the early 1930's, WT Coach Al Baggett and Canyon Mayor C.H. Jarrett, pharmacist and president of the Canyon Athletics Clubs, came up with the idea for an athletic dormitory. Funds were raised and student athletes were hired to help build the facility. Construction began in 1934 and Buffalo Courts opened in 1935 as the state's first dormitory for athletes.

The 2-story recreational hall is the only part of the original structure still standing. A major renovation in the 1980s made it a beautiful, historic home for the Alumni Association. The Randall County Historical Commission dedicated an official state historical marker at the facility in October 2007.

Buffalo Sports Park is the home to a variety of West Texas A&M University programs. The $21.8 million student funded-project not only provides valuable new space for WT but also for the entire community.

Nance Ranch and the Advanced Wind Turbine Test Facility

The Nance Ranch maintains approximately 475 acres of cultivated land which is in two roughly equal fields. All farming is strictly dryland, as there is no irrigation water available at the Ranch. The farming operation acts as a working laboratory for the Dryland Agriculture Institute and the Integrated Pest Management program, and provides numerous research and teaching opportunities for  faculty and students.

It is one of the largest testing facilities in the world and provides services for both large wind and small and micro wind manufacturers as well research and design testing capabilities. Wind turbine manufacturers are able to erect turbines for extended periods of time, and the facility provides new testing capacity for turbine manufacturers seeking certification to international standards, helping reduce time-to-market and lower costs, as downtime can essentially be eliminated.

 

The test facility is located at WTAMU's Nance Ranch, seven miles east of Canyon.

New Ag Complex

In addition to the restructure of the College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences, the Texas Legislature recently passed bills that will allow the University to issue more than $38 million worth of tuition revenue bonds for the construction of a new Agricultural Sciences Complex. The facility will benefit teaching and research in expanded space covering more than 140,000 square feet.

“The realignment of the college and construction of the new Ag Sciences Complex will allow agricultural sciences to better serve our students and the industries that feed the world,” Dr. Dean Hawkins, who will serve as acting dean of the College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences, said. “This will help propel agricultural science forward to a new level of excellence.”

The 2-story recreational hall is the only part of the original structure still standing. A major renovation in the 1980s made it a beautiful, historic home for the Alumni Association.

Athletic Facilities

Bain Athletic Center

The newly completed football locker room is the first step in the completion of WTAMU's Bain Athletic Center, located on the west side of the Buffalo Sports Complex. The 6,700 square foot locker room provides 135 lockers, along with showers, laundry facilities, equipment storage space and a video screen for the team to utilize when studying game-film review. The next stage of the project is the completion of the athletic training and strength/condition areas of the nearly 24,000 square foot space. The training areas will be fully equipped with a hydrotherapy facility, taping tables, ice baths and much more. The state-of-the-art, 7,000-square foot weight room will serve 500 student-athletes at WTAMU. Future stages include the addition of a Championship Atrium to showcase the tradition and success of WT athletics, along with an Academic Success Center for the University's student-athletes. The study hall and meeting rooms will be equipped with the latest in multimedia equipment and wireless access, and the Championship Atrium will feature trophy displays and memorabilia in a comfortable reception/seating area.

Buffalo Sports Park

Buffalo Sports Park is the home to a variety of West Texas A&M University programs. The $21.8 million student funded-project not only provides valuable new space for WT but also for the entire community. In addition to being the location of WT's brand new Division II intercollegiate complex for competition in baseball, softball, soccer and track and field, Buffalo Sports Park also will be the site for University intramural activities as well as community events and area high school sports. 

 

The project involved a complete renovation of campus from east of Jarrett Hall and north to the former site of the University's Wind Test Center. The sprawling complex includes:

Fieldhouse ("The Box")

Affectionately known as "The Box," the WTAMU Fieldhouse is home to the Lady Buffs volleyball program, and three Division II national championship banners attest that it has been a very good home, indeed. The Fieldhouse is renowned for the close proximity of the fans to both the playing surface and the player benches.

 

Over the years (prior to construction of the First United Bank Center) the box was a venue for numerous performances by entertainers with household namesSteve Martin, John Denver, Willie Nelson, George Strait, Crystal Gale and Tina Turner, just to name a few.

First United Bank Center

President Bill Clinton, Karl Rove, Maya Angelou, Blake McKowski, Big & Rich, Elie Wiesel, Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, Pat Green, Cross Canadian Ragweed and superstars of World Wrestling Entertainment are just some of the headliners who have performed at the First United Bank Center.

Home to Buff and Lady Buff basketball, the facility has seating for 5,000 and a scoreboard with a large video screen.

Used for WTAMU commencement exercises and a host of other public eventshigh school playoff games, conventions, freshmen convocation. The FUBC parking lot is the primary place to park and ride on the Shuttle Bus to the WTAMU campus.

Kimbrough Memorial Stadium

The second-largest stadium in NCAA Division II, Kimbrough Memorial Stadium has a seating capacity of 20,000, which isn't always enough. A Lone Star Conference record 23,276 fans packed the stadium for the homecoming game Oct. 13, 2007, a victory that helped propel the Buffs football team to a perfect 11-0 regular-season record.

The University's live buffalo mascot, escorted by the Herdsmen, leads the Buffs out onto the field before each game.

The stadium features a synthetic, all-weather playing surface, Happy State Bank Field, and the scoreboard is equipped with a Daktronics ProStar high-definition large video screen, an updated version of the Sony JumboTron.

Besides WTAMU football, the stadium is used for high school football and soccer games and band competitions.

Rodeo Arena

The West Texas A&M University rodeo arena is just south of Kimbrough Memorial Stadium. It is home to the men's and women's rodeo teams, which compete in the highly competitive Southwest Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. The men's team captured a national championship in 2005.

 

Virgil Henson Activities Center

Although the Department of Sports and Exercise Science and a number of student service operations (medical and wellness services) are housed in the Activities Center, the facility is, for the most part, a recreational haven. Originally built in 1970, the Activities Center accommodates an indoor swimming pool, an eight-lane bowling alley, weight room, racquetball/handball courts, game room, TV lounges and a couple of all-purpose rooms, including one large enough to attract eight pick-up teams to its four regulation-size basketball courts. The Activities Center is also home to Kids Kollege, the University's child-care center the main office of WT Athletics.

The VHAC was renovated in 2011 with an exciting overhaul of the main west entrance, including first-floor office renovations as well as new aesthetics to the center's lobby and main staircase. Additionally a nearly 40-foot tall rock-climbing wall now greets visitors coming in to the VHAC.
