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.

I moved to Laramie, Wyoming to attend the University of Wyoming. I loved it from the start. The neighborhoods are really nice around town, and there are plenty of places to be active including gyms, parks, hiking trails, and more. There are many things to do as well. There are movie theatres, an ice skating rink, plenty of restaurants, and more. There are also hidden gems around Laramie as well. Nu2Tu, which is a nice thrift shop. Second Story Book Store, a second-hand bookshop. There are also great places to eat around Laramie, including the Library, O'Dweyer's, and Altitude. Overall, Laramie is a great town to live in.
Great food, beautiful views, and amazing people! This wonderful town is close to other major cities for easy of shopping. The weather is wonderful for winter lovers!
