There are events every week that anyone can attend. For a smaller school they draw a lot of students from all over the world so the opportunities to meet people are high in a small town. Very friendly staff and teachers, unfortunately my last year they cut a few of the programs in the language departments and religious studies areas but the teachers in those departments are very dedicated and put their students first. There are also many clubs to participate in, free comedy and entertainment shows, and very often free lunches are offered at many of the events!

I love the diversity around campus and the endless activities and programs that you can participate in. Everybody around campus is always very friendly, and the amount of help that is offered with coursework is incredible. The University of Wyoming offers everything you desire in a college experience!
The University of Wyoming gives students an opportunity to go to college at an affordable price. In-state students will rant about how great the scholarship opportunities like Hathaway while out-of-state students will rave about UW as being less expensive than their home colleges in the state they live in.

Along with that, the University of Wyoming is supported by an amazing faculty and staff that have always fanned the flame of student brilliance. I've seen professors at UW that have made me feel like I was at an Ivy League school. Many of the staff went to top-rate colleges like Harvard or MIT, so students will be able to get a world class education without the cost.

There is an amazing variety of clubs and activities to support these perks, and the town of Laramie is welcoming unto itself.
