Summer Visits are a more relaxed experience on a quieter campus. While Washakie Dining Center is not available, we will leave time in your schedule to eat on your own at the venues in the Wyoming Student Union.

Unlike other campus visits, we offer:

• A UW water bottle upon your check-in. At 7220 feet elevation, you need to stay hydrated!

• A student guided tour including our major academic buildings and the residence halls.

• A complimentary lunch for every visiting student and discounted prices for parents and additional guests. (Contingent on your check-in time and date.)

• Speak with an admissions representative to learn more about UW, the admissions process, and scholarships. (You can choose to have a one-on-one admissions appointment or, if you are visiting on a Friday morning, you can chose to participate in a fun-engaged group admissions presentation that answers all of the questions.)

• The opportunity to meet a representative in the College that your primary major will be housed

• At the conclusion of your day and the submission of your Visit Evaluation, you will receive a 10% discount card for our University Store!

Still have questions? Want to learn more about campus opportunities? This is your time to explore campus on your own or ask for assistance.
