What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
The University of Wyoming is amazing. Not only can you get an incredible, and improving education (nationally ranked high) the teachers truly want students to succeed. Indeed, many teachers take student researchers as part of ongoing research projects.
David from Cheyenne, WY
I believe the University of Wyoming is one of the very best colleges for students unwilling to pay the outragous costs of the big name schools. The University carefully uses its funds to support what matters most, the education, rather than over the top technology that no one uses or unnecessary landscaping. The University of Wyoming is a great investment in any student's future.
