University of Wyoming offers a lot of opportunities for students to be successful around campus. One of the best things about this university is that everyone is so involved with the school. The whole state seems like it's all about the college. The people you meet here are great as well and I have felt welcomed since the day I have got here. As an African American who attends the university, I enjoy being here a lot although there is not much diversity throughout the school, diversity is something I am more used to since I have grown up in a military family and moving quite frequently. The university makes me feel apart of family and everyone should consider attending here! Go Cowboys!

This is my first year attending the University of Wyoming in pursuit of my undergrad degree. The campus of UW is decently sized; at an average walking pace you can get from the freshman dorms to the other side in about 15 minutes. Everyone is friendly and campus is beautiful! If you grew up in a small town or just have a preference towards them, UW might be a place to consider. It's large enough that you don't recognize every person you see, but still small enough that you don't feel completely lost in a sea of unknown people.

As a transfer student, I'm glad I wasn't thrown into the University of Wyoming as a freshman. I completed my first two years of education at LCCC in Cheyenne (where most UW transfer students are from) and got a feel for the college environment and workload at a smaller scale, which made me much more confident going to a much larger university with higher expectations and less student/teacher interaction. I see my freshman friends greatly struggling with the workload and difficulty of the courses they are taking and I am extremely glad I chose the route I did. Other than that, UW is a great school with great people, and difficult classes not for the weak of heart. Laramie is also a great town, but full of crazy drivers. If you do take a car to school, make sure it's 4WD or you won't be able to get out of the parking lots, UW doesn't like to take care of the roads or sidewalks in the winter!
