First Year, The World Needs More Cowboys.



Maybe UW is your home-state school. Or maybe you’re out of state and your friends are asking: “Why Wyoming?”

You know why. Because you know what it feels like to stand on the high plains and gaze up at a sky as big as your dreams. Because you know UW offers boundless opportunities, adventures near and far and intellectual challenges that will shake you to your boots. Because you know there is more to life.

Because The World Needs More Cowboys.
