University of Wyoming Reviews
Review University of Wyoming
University of Wyoming offers a lot of opportunities for students to be successful around campus. One of the best things about this university is that everyone is so involved with the school. The whole state seems like it's all about the college. The people you meet here are great as well and I have felt welcomed since the day I have got here. As an African American who attends the university, I enjoy being here a lot although there is not much diversity throughout the school, diversity is something I am more used to since I have grown up in a military family and moving quite frequently. The university makes me feel apart of family and everyone should consider attending here! Go Cowboys!
This is my first year attending the University of Wyoming in pursuit of my undergrad degree. The campus of UW is decently sized; at an average walking pace you can get from the freshman dorms to the other side in about 15 minutes. Everyone is friendly and campus is beautiful! If you grew up in a small town or just have a preference towards them, UW might be a place to consider. It's large enough that you don't recognize every person you see, but still small enough that you don't feel completely lost in a sea of unknown people.
The University of Wyoming is the academic jewel of the state with a beautiful campus when it is not covered in snow, but even then is completely charming. The school strives to provide students with an exceptional education while maintaining low costs that make it possible to keep academics affordable for both resident and out of state students. The university works hard to bring in the best professors despite its isolation in the least populous state of the nation, refusing to compromise students' education. Often it seems that the mentality is that students owe the university for their education, but the University of Wyoming has reversed such thinking, they reward and appreciate students for putting their faith in the university for their education.
