University of Wyoming Honors College

The Honors College is 100% about the students — a truly exceptional group of people who make a difference at UW and in the world. Honors scholars are intellectually curious students from all majors who are creative, inspired by diverse ideas, and seek a greater understanding of their place in society.

Combine excellent students with superb faculty in small classes and the result is an invigorating and highly effective learning environment. Honors faculty talk with students, not at them. Honors students thrive in this stimulating environment, develop lasting friendships, and succeed in their academic and professional pursuits.

• A composite ACT score of 27

• A combined verbal and quantitative SAT score of 1310

Honors in the News

Courtney Kudera

My name is Courtney Kudera and I am a senior in the honors program. For the fall semester I am abroad in India! Life here is entirely different from life in Laramie, and weather is only the beginning. Festivals, temples, color, flowers, and gardens are everywhere in the city. With delicious food and a rich culture, India is as entirely different from life in the U. S.  Study abroad is one of the best ways to learn everyday, inside and outside the classroom!

For the past year I have been conducting research in Dr. Jonathan Prather's laboratory, where we studied the circuits in the bird brain that are important to decision-making. Because technology present today lacks the ability to explore the human brain with sufficient resolution to understand the circuit and the cellular mechanisms that underlie the process, we rely on songbirds to act as a search image. Because the avian brain is so similar to that of a human brain, we can use our findings to better understand human decision-making as well.
