Profile picture of James Wheeler

James Wheeler

Hometown: I was born in Kailua, Hawai’i but moved all over including, Alexandria, Virginia; San Antonio, Texas; Jacksonville, North Carolina; Seoul, South Korea and Quantico, Virginia, before moving to Laramie.

College: B.A. Anthropology, University of Wyoming

Favorite college memory: My favorite college memory was my first home football game. The whole town changes over night, everything was covered with brown and gold and everyone had so much energy. Standing in War Memorial Stadium with 29,000 people was a kind of electricity and environment not easily forgotten.

Hobbies outside of work: I love woodworking and being outdoors.

Favorite place on campus: My favorite place on campus is the American Heritage Center (AHC). It’s such an interesting building from the outside and even more so on the inside. I had a class in the AHC freshman year and discovered they have one of the nation’s largest collection of pop culture memorabilia.

Advice to incoming students: Take advantage of everything the University of Wyoming has to offer. Go on an alternative break, study abroad, and have fun.
