Name: Danielle Britz


Hometown: Wheatland, Wyo.


Class: Freshman


Major: Elementary Education and Special Education


Why did you choose UW for your education?: Born and raised in Wheatland, Wyo., my entire life I was always told that the University of Wyoming was the ideal place to go to school. With the amazing benefits of in-state tuition, the Hathaway Scholarship, and an amazing campus that is not too far from home, I could never find a good reason to not continue my education at UW. In addition to that, all of the amazing teachers that I looked up to attended UW, giving me even more of an incentive to continue my education in Laramie.


What do you hope to do after graduation?: What I would love to do after I receive my degree is find an underfunded school in the state or a community in Wyoming that needs help and do everything that I can to ensure students are getting the best possible education that they can get. In addition, I would love to coach high school volleyball and create a volleyball program that is like another family for players.


What would you tell a prospective student who is considering attending UW?: I would tell them that attending UW is the smartest choice they can make when entering into adulthood. You see all over news and in the media how people are constantly complaining about school being unaffordable and being left with copious amounts of student loans. UW is an affordable university with a top-of-the-line campus that is constantly being updated. With limitless opportunities for scholarships, there are also opportunities to make new connections through UW alumni, who can help launch careers for a successful future.


What is your favorite part about UW?: Overall my favorite part about UW is the community. Laramie is the culmination of friendly, small-town feelings that Wyoming is known for. People at UW and all over Laramie are always looking out for one another and ensuring a safe and welcoming community. My favorite part about UW is the community, because it feels like I never even left home.


Do you have a favorite spot on campus or in town?: Honestly, I would have to say my favorite place to go in Laramie is the Half Acre Gym on campus. Half Acre is an amazing facility that offers activities from Crossfit to rock climbing to yoga to spin class, and so much more. Anytime I feel overwhelmed with school or just want to clear my mind, I go to Half Acre. It’s clean, welcoming, and just overall my safe place.


What are some of your hobbies?: When I’m not focusing on school I enjoy going to the gym and weightlifting, reading, and being with friends and family.
