Off-Campus Housing: I was an RA for a year and a half so I know all of the drama that goes on behind the scenes but as a whole the campus housing isn't bad. They are renovating all of the halls and making it a nicer place to live.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is pretty safe. They have emergency lights that students can use to call the campus police to walk students to wherever they need to go.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: If students don't try to violate the rule, it is pretty easy going. The school cops don't tolerate drinking and drug use on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It is just a bunch of chain restaurants. Off campus dining is more useful if students don't have a meal plan.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The campus has a shuttle that travels to on campus apartments. The town has a bus that will take students around town but it can be a little inconvenient. Having a car is more beneficial and convenient than taking the buses.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't apply for financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Fall semester isn't terrible. The weather doesn't start to turn until mid-October/early November. But once it starts to get cold the weather turns cold fast. In the Spring it snows or is freezing most of the semester. When spring hits the weather kind of gets warmer but it doesn't always get up to the 50's. It stays pretty cold all semester and sometimes snows in May.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't focus on partying so I have no idea where and when parties happen.

4 College Freshman

Academics: UW has a good focus on academics. The professors will help students who want to do well. The library has a lot of space and is relatively quiet all year. It can be packed during finals and midterms but other than that it is pretty empty.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of international students on campus and a lot of groups on campus as well that focus on the international students. Laramie has plenty of places for most religions. Most people a pretty accepting of the diverse culture on campus.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of students drink because there "isn't anything to do" in Laramie so they throw parties and drink. A lot of students drink and do drugs. Because we're so close to the Colorado border a lot of students travel down during the weekend and partake in their scene.

3 College Freshman

Computers: UW has a lot of computer labs available around campus. Some labs depending on their location will give students a few free prints to specific majors. Prints are 10 cents per page and students get $15 each semester. The wireless is okay, it is not the greatest. It is a little slow especially in the dorms with all of the students using it. In the dorms it is helpful for each room to have their own router. It can be kind of helpful for students to have their own printer for last minute printings because the library can be kind of packed.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks do a lot of things for charity and some do help out around town. A lot of the major sorority/fraternities have houses on campus to live in. Non-Greeks living in the dorms can be disrupted during rush/initiation when they're yelling and chanting.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town comes to life when school starts in the fall. There are plenty of things to do on and off campus. Every Thursday night there is swing dancing on campus and every Friday night there is dancing at the Cowboy. The shopping isn't terrible, Laramie has nice shops downtown and there are malls 45 minutes to an hour away.
