  • The University just renovated the dorms, which are quite nice for the price you pay. Both single rooms and two-student dorms are available. Campus apartments are also offered.…

    We have a few resturants on campus, the best I think being Elements which is a yummy sandwich and coffee shop located in the Classroom building where most freshmen classes are. Otherwise we have Panda, a pizza place, a little gyro place and a subway by the dorms.

    The main dining center on campus is pretty nice. There is also a new branch coming in soon. After a while the food starts to all taste the same, so try and get a little variation if possible.

    The food isn't half bad, but make sure the Mongolian grill isn't the primary target every single day, or the freshman 15 actually becomes a thing. There is a variety of food in the cafeteria, but if you're looking for something different, the Union is a great place to go to eat Panda Express and hang out. Don't spend all your money in one place though.

    I am not a part of Greek life but I have several friends who are. I know that our chapters are very much a part of the entire UW community and help put on events for the whole school as well as their own events. I have gone to our homecoming sing contest many times and had a great time with the people in Fraturnities and Sororities.

    It is not what the stereotype would have you think. They're friendly and open. They don't have silly competitions between each other.

    Greek life at the University of Wyoming is starting to grow. It has been small for a while and now with new leadership there is a positive future for it. The fraternities and sororities are very involved on campus and in the community and push each other through healthy competition to be leaders on the campus. I am in a fraternity and I would strongly recommend Greek life to anyone else because of all the memories I've made and people I've met. The people you meet will impact you for the rest of your life and help you become the person you want to be. Greek life does events such as socials among other Greek houses, philanthropy events, campus events, community events, member events, and much more. Rush week is at the start of every school year for new students to see each house and get an idea about what each house is about. That is where you can see which place is a fit for you if you are interest and if not it is a good place to meet some really cool people.

    The community is small in Wyoming but there is a home for everyone if you are willing to look for it. As a sorority girl myself I can tell you that I wouldn't have traded it for anything and some of my best memories came from those girls not only from the times we spent going out on random adventure or to social events but studying in the library with my sisters. My sorority also offered an opportunity to have a professor dinner which in turn gave me some personal relationships with some of my professors that later benefited me when I was applying for Grad school through recommendation letters. College classes are huge and having group dinners made by a chef is a great way to stand out to them in a positive way.
