Martha's Story

Why Texas Wesleyan?

"At the time, I wasn't happy at the University of Texas and was interested in transferring to a smaller school. I was deciding whether to attend TCU or Texas Wesleyan. After visiting both schools, I chose Texas Wesleyan because of the small classes and location – I grew up in the TCU neighborhood and wanted a new experience."

What did you like most about TXWES?

"Texas Wesleyan made me feel important and my professors cared about my success. I learned the importance of building strong relationships and made life-long friends. My Texas Wesleyan family – classmates and faculty – have been with me for over 40 years and I can't imagine my life without them."

How did Texas Wesleyan have a positive influence in your life?

"Going to school here gave me confidence in myself. When I transferred to Texas Wesleyan, I was quite shy. I had the chance to be active in student organizations, work as an RA in the residence halls and learn in a small class environment. These opportunities prepared me for a successful career in the mortgage banking industry and in fundraising."
