The University Honors College is a set of opportunities for academically able and ambitious undergraduates. Those opportunities include innovative courses taught by award-winning faculty,   special scholarships, and independent research on questions important to you, active leadership in a student organization that makes real decisions, and off-campus study elsewhere in the   country and the world. The most important opportunities are the chance to grow, to learn in the company of other ambitious students, and to develop your talents and abilities in a challenging and supportive environment.

Priority Registration For Honors Students

The Wyoming Honors Organization (WHO) gives students a voice in determining the program's direction and sponsors many social and cultural activities each year. It can also lead to important leadership experience. Whether you are interested in watching the Colorado Rockies or Phantom of the Opera, working on an Easter egg hunt for local children, decorating business windows for Homecoming, helping select scholarship winners, or deciding which Honors classes will be offered, WHO will probably offer something you want to do.
