About HSI

Scholars from all over the state of Wyoming come together on the University of Wyoming campus for 3 weeks to experience college life. Students will take college classes, stay in the dorms, participate in community service and attend events both on and off campus. Our goal is to provide a self-discovery atmosphere for a variety of scholars who would relish a challenge or may need a little push to be challenged.  The array of activities that scholars participate in are designed to push the limits of the student as a whole, and help each individual learn more about themselves as they move into their junior year. 

Each student is enrolled in two college style classes: a Physical and Natural World class, and a Human Culture class, as well as an additional one-hour enrichment class in the evening. Over the course of the three weeks, scholars will attend these classes 4 times a week, without the pressure of grades.  The focus in these classes is centered around learning, rather than around tests and homework. Previous classes have included:

  • Robotics! Intro to Engineering and Computer Science
  • Positive Psychology
  • Photography, Blogging, and Media Literacy
  • The Voice: Persuasive Speech, Debating, and Advocacy
  • Shakespeare Unbound
  • Modern Agriculture: Growing Food Everywhere

In addition to classes, students will have plenty of time to participate in activities like dodgeball tournaments, guest speakers, workshops, and field trips. Scholars will become familiar with the UW campus by living in the dorms, eating in the Washakie Dining hall, utilizing Half Acre Gym , Coe Library, and the Union. HSI aims to encapsulate a college-like experience to give scholars a jumpstart in life.

We hire a qualified HSI team to oversee life in the dorms and activities on and off campus. Students will also interact with University professors during their classes, and have the opportunity to meet previous HSI alumni during their stay.

The program aims to provide not only a fun and enriching experience, but also connections to help scholars advance later in life.
