What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
Get involved! Even if you are in a freshman dorm that has no common element among each resident (which is rare at UW), there are so many mini-communities within the University for each and every student to find a niche. Greek life is a strong, well-organized program at UW, and there are hundreds of other clubs and activities with which to involve yourself!
Jordan from Littleton, CO
I would recommend visiting UW. If you know someone who goes here, spend a weekend with them. I visited my older brother when I was a senior in high school and it opened my eyes to what really going to school here was like. I even went to a couple classes with him. It was definitely beneficial to see things from the inside.
Jackie from CO
Do NOT underestimate this school.
Take advantage of Washakie.
Join one of the 300+ clubs!
Use you professors' office hours!
Raegan from Evanston, WY
Make sure you know what you're getting in to, visit Wyoming during the winter for the worst of the weather. If you can handle that, you'll do just fine. The halls are small yes, but if you tough it out now whatever you move to after college will seem just that much better.
Chelsea from Bryan, TX
get involved as much as possible, and bring some warm clothes, the winters are rough. attending class is another big part.
Cody from Gillette, WY
apply for all the scholarships you are eligible for. work hard your first year so you don't lose any of your scholarships.
hayden from grand island, ne
The best tip I have for prospective students is don't let the location turn you down. Yes, Laramie, Wyoming isn't the most attractive place to live, especially as a college student, but it really isn't as bad as it seems. There are lots of things to do in and around Laramie, you just need to get out and find things! Downtown is a fun place to walk around with great restaurants and shops. The hiking, skiing, camping, etc., is top notch (coming from someone who lives in Colorado). As far as the weather is concerned, it's really not terrible. Yes, it's cold. Yes, it snows. Yes, it's windy. But that doesn't make living there awful. Dress for the weather, and remember that you're in college to get an education, not to live in perfect climate. The people are nice, the school is fun, and there's lots to do, so don't let the location decide against you!
Malorie from Aurora, CO
Get involved with the various activities, groups and ongoing research to help augment your education. Have fun and enjoy the many activities, games and events.
Susan from Laramie, WY
Get involved. Find what you love and go for it.
Margaret from Lakewood, CO
At the University of Wyoming-or any university for that matter- there are many scholarships that you can apply for but you have to look for them! Many scholarships through the school have deadline before the second semester of your senior year so be aware of this. Also, get involved: there is nothing worse that sitting alone in your dorm room on a Friday night. Meet new people, get involved in your school, and have fun (and this doesn't always mean drinking). If it came down to it, the 3 peices of adviced that i would give would be 1)be aware of deadlines 2) get involved and 3) make a good variety of friends. You don't want just partiers or just study buddies: have a few of both. Most of all, you get out what you put into the college experience. If you aren't enjoying yourself then you aren't trying hard enough.
