Portrait of Elaina Helmberger

The Scholarship Invitational was unique to all of my prior experiences. I was able to speak with faculty and current students, all of whom expressed their desire to see me succeed. There are no strangers at TWU. The family and the opportunities that I have been given at TWU have changed my life. The Texas Woman's community is for everyone. We cannot wait to welcome you home.
