1 College Freshman

Academics: This school's academics are truly terrible, especially if you are an incoming freshman. The school hires graduate students (not professor's) in large numbers to teach courses in order to save money. There is also absolutely NO oversight over these graduate student instructors and if you leave a bad impression, they have no reason not to fail you for absolutely no reason. One instructor has singled me out and decided to fail me despite my thorough effort and skill with the subject matter. Coming to this school was the WORST decision of my life. The only reason I could see for anyone to come here is if they are a Wyoming resident and cannot afford to go out of state. DO NOT come to the University of Wyoming if you are out of state. I am from Colorado and there are much better choices to be had in that state.There is no nightlife unless you are over 21 by the way. Do not expect to enjoy living here much, as there is nothing to do but sit around on campus. The real travesty, however, is the APPALLING failure that is the academics of UW. Do not come to this school.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The only problem would be trying to balance work with school since an engineering majors workload can get heavy. Still, Engineering majors will learn what they need to in order to be successful

5 College Junior

Academics: The academics are very, very good. This place is one of the best values in education in the country, considering what you get for how little you pay, especially in-state.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics on this campus are amazing. All of the professors know what they are talking about and there are a lot of resources on campus to help you succeed.
