Laramie is a very enjoyable town to live in, whether you're in college or not! It isn't too big, and it offers many great opportunities to build a community and find your niche. I love the outdoors, and with Vedawoo to the East and The Snow Range Mountains to the west, there's no shortage of hiking/camping/adventuring! I also love the school. It has a great community and many opportunities to get involved.
Furthermore, Laramie is quite near other large cities like Fort Collins, Colorado, and Denver, Colorado, both of which are pretty easy drives if you're looking to get away to have some enjoyable shopping/dinner outings.

Laramie is essentially the Brooklyn of Wyoming. Here, you'll find exciting urban culture tied to the Front Range region, with microbreweries, eclectic shopping, and historic architecture. It is the only city in Wyoming with a university (University of Wyoming), and additionally houses a branch of the Laramie County Community College and the Wyoming Technical Institute. Laramie High School is among the top public high schools in the state, and the education community is nationally recognized. Aside from being safe, healthy, and conscious, Laramie is a well-known outdoor recreation destination with areas like Vedauwoo and the Snowy Range easily accessible.
I've lived in Laramie for 3 years now as a college student, and I'm glad I've had the chance to live on my own in Laramie. It's a great town for college students (of course) and there's always something to do!
