Spring Issue of UWyo Magazine Offers Guide for Incoming Students

The spring issue of UWyo Magazine -- the University of Wyoming’s flagship publication -- provides a guide for new students with advice from experts and Cowboy Coach upperclassmen.

Topics include what students wish they’d known sooner; keys to academic success; all aspects of wellness; career success; getting involved; “adulting”; university traditions; and an article for parents by parents. Additional sections include alumni spotlights and a feature on UW’s new char-brick coal demonstration house.

“We are home to so many impressive students and programs,” says UWyo Magazine Managing Editor Micaela Myers. “By tapping into UW’s student Cowboy Coaches, we’re able to provide incoming students with advice straight from their peers. We also interviewed experts across campus to let students know the plethora of resources available, plus the best tips for all aspects of student success. We hope alumni and other readers will share this issue with the young people in their lives.”
