GEAR UP First Year College Students at the University of Wyoming

Three photos of Peer Mentors and GEAR UP freshmen students

GEAR UP at the University of Wyoming (GU@UW) works with GEAR UP college freshmen to support their transition to college life. Services help students adjust to life at UW by providing connections to campus resources, supporting academic success, and helping with financial aid and scholarships.

Services include:

  • Kick Off, a GEAR UP college orientation, which provides an opportunity for students to learn about GU@UW and engage in team building activities with other GEAR UP students, staff, and Peer Mentors.

  • GEAR UP events which provide information about opportunities for campus engagement. Events include cultural, financial, and academic workshops.

  • Free tutoring and academic support.

  • GEAR UP Peer Mentoring which pairs GEAR UP college freshmen with a Peer Mentor who is a GEAR UP alumni. The Peer Mentors help their “mentees” connect with people, programs, and resources.

Information and details about GU@UW programs and upcoming events will be sent to students’ UW email accounts.

If you have questions about GEAR UP's College Freshmen Services or are interested in serving as a GU@UW Peer Mentor, please contact the GEAR UP Wyoming Student Programming Coordinator at 307-766-6723.
