3 College Student

Diversity: our diversity on campus is decent. you will here some races comments every now and then, but for the most part people are treated as equals. I would say that more than half of the students are very conservative in their political beliefs and are most likely republican. Th University of Wyoming is fairly cheep and easy to get excepted into. therefore many peoples economic backgrounds are pretty close in numbers.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Our school is very open to foreign students. I personally became good friends with an individual from South Korea. However, because many of the students are from Wyoming, there is a lot of ignorance towards ethnicities and sexualities. There are many progressive types though.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Wyoming is not that diverse, but people are very accepting of others of different backgrounds. We do have a lot of international students, so that helps contribute to the diversity of the campus. There is a lot of support for those of different sexual orientations, so if you fall into this category, you should look into one of the many LGBTQ student groups on campus. There are also many religious and political clubs on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Very conservative, ignorant, and sometimes racist people exist within this university. There are many programs on campus to promote diversity, but we need more.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Wyoming is known as the equality state. By and large they are accepting of all cultures. Most Wyomingites may have never met a person of another culture as the state is 98% white. Still they are open, curious and friendly.
