Student Review: “The University of Wyoming is a wonderful school located in picturesque Laramie, WY. 13,000 students call the University home every year. The school is large enough to provide all the amenities of the biggest colleges and universities, yet has a small university feel. The campus can easily be walked across in about fifteen minutes. The quality of the education is among the best. I had no problem finding a career with my degree from Wyoming. The University has been consistently ranked as one of the nations best public universities, as well as one of the best ten educations money can buy by Forbes magazine. The faculty at the University are extremely knowledgeable and helpful; they really care about student success. The facilities on campus are wonderful; many buildings are new and I really enjoyed the frequent interaction which I received with faculty and classmates. I would not hesitate to choose Wyoming if I went back for an advanced degree.” -Kyle D., student at University of Wyoming
