What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Univesity of Wyoming has a very homey feel to it. It's obviously scary to take the next step from high school to college but the University of Wyoming made it feel like it was just a big step instead of a giant leap. I don't want to say there is a high school vibe at the University of Wyoming because 1. who wants to go back to high school and 2. it was something so new but familiar at the same time. The classrooms are small enough to actualy get to know your teachcers. That was probably my biggest fear going into college, that I would not have a relationship with my teachers. Even in a big auditorium my professors knew who I was. The professors is a big reason I loved my first year at UW. They are really involved in the classroom and office hours were encouraged, even sometimes with extra credit. In an audotorium of 175 students my professor knew the name of every student, called on them by name, and even stopped me when I was walking to class one day. The professors really made it feel like they cared and I loved that. Campus life is amazing. We might not have the best sports team but I'd say we have the best school pride. Football games were a must on saturdays, if it wasn't a home game everyone was in the common areas screaming at the T.V., Prexys Pasture was always filled with frisbee and badmittin if the sun was out. Each floor in my dorms had a common area and my floor was always filled with people. We had two different Xboxes in there 24/7 movie night almost every night, kids from other floors and other halls hanging out. It was a great environment to be in for my first year of college. All in all the University of Wyoming made my freshman year of college great. I cannot wait to go back for my sophomore year to get to experience more of the only University in the state of Wyoming! Go Pokes!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am excited to attend UWYO in the fall. I have visited campus a number of times in recent months and have been impressed by the access to student leaders, professors, and resources. I am a little concerned that Laramie, WY is a very small town, but there are shops, restaurants and services to be found on and off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wyoming is an extremely underrated school. As someone who didn't grow up in the state, I was definitely skeptical at first; however, there are several major benefits to attending UW. First, it's the only government-supported university in the state, so all the funding is concentrated. Second, off-campus housing is widespread and impressively cheap. Third, their enthusiasm for undergraduate involvement in research in any discipline is unparalleled. Fourth, their study-abroad and outreach programs are surprisingly well-funded. These factors convinced me to choose UW; having spent some time here, I'm now smitten with the university's size-- neither too small or too large-- as well as its incredibly invested faculty and student opportunities for involvement. I would highly recommend that any high school student consider this university!

The University of Wyoming is a great school. They have multiple opportunities to obtain an advance degree. The professors are great. They really want to see you succeed and will help in anyway possible. Support staff are also wonderful. The librarians are amazing. As a student we can request items be sent to us when we are not on campus and you get them really quickly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wyoming is a great place for Students of all different backgrounds and interests. There is something at the university for everyone. It is in the nice, small town of Laramie and the University certainly maintains those small-town vibes. You can easily find your place on this small campus and you will feel like there are people who know and care about you. The University of Wyoming is a wonderful place and I wouldn't choose to be anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

the teaching staff is good, while the advising is horrible. the university of Wyoming kept increasing the tuition and fees while no big change is actually happening. the food is not pleasant and the equipment for the each of the colleges is completely unbalanced such us the college of science and engineering is completely not equipped with new technology and looks like a building from the 1920's

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school in a great town. The professors are all very informative and assist students in their efforts to learn and become the next generation of professionals. I would recommend this school to anyone who doesn't want to go to a large city in order to receive a quality education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Class sizes can be large averaging from 65-140. The administration struggles to complete adminostrative tasks in a timely, efficient, and helpful manner. Student Services such as academic assistance’s like tutoring are lacking. Advising is overwhelmed and has set me up for failure multiple times. I have asked for assistance in the past and have been met with dissolution, cop out excuses, and a lack of effort. The campus is nice, laramie is a cool town, the students are mostly down to earth, and there is a Night life if you’re into getting hammered every weekend. I think UW excels in providing research opportunities for its faculty, infrastructure development of its campus, and supporting athletics. UW lacks administrative competency, student academic services, and quality instruction. It is a cookie cutter state university that keeps you stuck within a field of study and punishes you for exploring your education.
