UW Alumni Association

Freshman Writing Project


Share your Poke PRIDE!

Each summer, proud UW alumni write to students who have committed to come to the University of Wyoming and chosen to be a Poke!

Since 2017, alumni have sent thousands of notecards to incoming UW students sharing unique UW experiences with them.

As students prepare to come to campus, these notecards provide that big UW family feel. It’s a great opportunity to help students learn there are alumni who care about them and want to see them succeed.

The Alumni Association will provide you with all you need to connect to a small group of 5 – 10 students including notecards, envelopes, envelope seals, a brown sharpie and suggested messaging for your notecards. Participation gives you the opportunity to:

· Share your congratulations with them as new Cowboys

· Thank them for choosing UW

· Share some of your personal story on what UW means to you and your college experience


Register HERE to be a part of this year’s Freshman Writing Project!

Your packet will be sent out in early June, and we ask that your cards be written and sent by July 15th.
