As a college student in this small, university town, there are plenty of things going on to keep me occupied. Laramie itself is full of young, interesting people and surrounded by beautiful mountains and places to hike, rock climb, mountain bike, etc. The climate of Laramie is gorgeous year round, from the snowy winters to the green, quiet summers. It is a safe, inviting place to live and it is easy to get to know friendly people almost anywhere you go in town!

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.
If you don't love outdoor winter sports, you're in for a long, isolated winter season which lasts so much longer than where I'm from (Oklahoma). There aren't enough restaurants, shops, etc. to keep anyone happy. Thank God for the internet!
