I love the classes for my major offered by the University. They are engaging with great professors that are approachable outside of lecture. The professors for the music classes are especially great and have made it easy to stay in music even as a non-music major. Getting between classes can be a little difficult as a biology music student but the campus is bike-able which helps a lot! There are so many clubs on campus it is hard to limit yourself to just a handful. I am active in two clubs but also get updates and information for another two clubs. There is lots of outdoor space for enjoying nice weather, which helps for getting out of studying slumps.
Review University of Wyoming
Though this school is in a small town in Wyoming, it truly was an amazing experience being there. There is a wide variety of things to do constantly. Clubs, sports, organizations, greek life, international study, and so much more is available to all students. The small campus makes it feel home- like and the the whole town is nice and super involved in the University sports. If you're looking for a college experience like no other, the University of Wyoming is a great option!
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!
