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!

The Universtiy of Wyoming is a wonderful college to attend. Class sizes are just right, teachers are very helpful and will do anything in their power to help you understand the material to succeed, there are all kinds of activities on campus to help students get involved and everybody is super friendly. One thing I would change about the school is the eating plan, I feel students pay an outrageous amount of money for their meal plan, which is mandatory for students that live in the dorms. Even though you are stuck with the meal plan, I feel the other wonderful opportunities the school provides outweigh the meal plan. I would strongly encourage students to attend the University of Wyoming.

The school itself is fine and a lot of programs are currently getting a facelift which is exciting. However, the weather here is terrible and the town is too small and secluded. It wasn't my first pick, but you can't beat their in state tuition. Probably will not stay for grad school.
