The best part of UW is the Campus Ministries. They have lots of social events that are safe and fun for fresh fish and seniors alike. There are four different groups, so you've got a good choice of people to fit in with, and all of them serve food fairly often. I wouldn't go to UW for academics. It's a social college. Also called a party college. There's dancing a few nights every week, tons of clubs and hang-out spots, and a beer garden on campus. If you're looking for a cheap, chill place to learn a little bit from underperforming professors and grad students, this is your place.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The academic and administrative quality of UW is poor at best. There are a few gems here and there, but too many teachers and professors have screws loose to be worth the time they spend. Perhaps I'm just disenchanted with higher ed, but I would never recommend going to UW for a high-tier education. Go to a trade school.

I have liked the University of Wyoming due to its good atmosphere, good psychology program, and its easy connections.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Parking is horrible at the University of Wyoming. Winters are harsh and walking for blocks due to parking options can be dangerous and a hazard to students.

Laramie is a great community with a lot of individuals either attending or employed by the University, so it's a tight-knit campus with many resources. You're only one hour away from Colorado and only 20 minutes away from plenty of beautiful outdoor spots! If you like hiking or climbing there are especially great places for you here. I went to a different university for my first year and I am so glad I transferred to the University of Wyoming!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is very cold and windy here sometimes during the winter. But even on cold days, we have a lot of fun!

Firstly, I am a secondary Bachelor's student. I am currently attending online only - that said, bear that in mind when reviewing my selections on food, dorms, etc. The University of Wyoming has a fantastic program for folks with a current four-year degree and who wish to earn a second in nursing. The BRAND program is for students who will be able to achieve a degree in about 23 months, start to finish (15 months for the nursing program itself) that would be continuous full time, assuming a body could pass each class with a C or better. For me, this has been a blessing. It would take me longer to get a two-year nursing degree than this program's four-year. There are prerequisite classes, but the staff have been straightforward and have a "go-get-em" energy. I am not in the nursing program yet. As I understand, I'll need to attend in-person classes five days every other week, and then later, as the program progresses, the school will help me find a hospital in my area for clinical and placement. This program requires that a student is in Wyoming for their nursing program.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It may be a no-brainer, but the instructors expect that we will accept the grade we earn as a student. Case and point: I earned a "d", but I was one percentage point from a "c". I reached out to my instructor for any opportunity to earn the C and was told that " earned what you earned". I fully agree with this model, but be mindful that we reap what we sow.
