From a wide range of majors, to endless campus jobs and incredible research opportunities, the University of Wyoming is an amazing school. I have met so many different people from all across the country and we all agree, this school seems too good to be true! It's affordable, the professors are always understanding, and if you like nature, there is always something to do! Whether you travel downtown, or go skiing for the weekend, there's always an adventure to be had. Class sizes are so small, that every professor I've had still knows my name! Overall, this is an incredible school and I highly suggest that everyone apply. The only thing I would change about UW is the dorms. They should be more frequently updated or repaired.

University of Wyoming is a great school not only educationally but also experience wise. With may great ways to get students involved, I would proudly say that I am a University of Wyoming Cowboy! The school offers great educational help to all students through tutors, supplemental instruction classes and office hours with the teachers. I love the environment here, everyone is so welcoming and nice and I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is considering it!
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!
