Why AFROTC at UW?
Why choose AFROTC at the University of Wyoming?
AFROTC Detachment 940 and the University of Wyoming provide numerous opportunities for students and cadets while they pursue their degrees. One of the greatest benefits is our smaller detachment size. This results in a tight-knit cadet corps where you will meet and get to know your peers quickly. The smaller size also allows for greater opportunities such as leadership positions, focused training, and morale building events. In addition, the high cadet to cadre ratio allows for direct cadre interaction, mentorship, and involvement. Bottom line, you will not be a face in the crowd at Det 940.
- The University of Wyoming’s location in Laramie also allows for some additional unique opportunities. For example, each fall the Detachment participates in an ice-breaker event by climbing to the top of nearby Medicine Bow Peak (12,013 feet), which is the tallest peak in Southern Wyoming. In addition, to a variety of other outdoor opportunities, we are close to both F.E. Warren AFB and the Wyoming Air National Guard in Cheyenne. These installations provide local opportunities to interact with current Air Force personnel in a variety of career fields as you prepare to enter the U.S. Air Force.
Additional opportunities at the University of Wyoming include:
- University of Wyoming has one of the lowest tuition rates in the country
- In addition to tuition that is comparatively lower than other universities, the University of Wyoming provides exemplary AFROTC cadets additional scholarship opportunities
- The University of Wyoming also provides an ROTC room and board incentive program. Active cadets living in university housing or using a university meal card may be eligible for university funding to offset a portion of their room and board expenses.
