 Graphic with Gareth Flowers


Name: Gareth Flowers


Hometown: Powell, Wyo.


Class: Junior


Major: Chemical Engineering


Why did you choose UW for your education?: UW is close to home. I got in-state tuition and the Hathaway Scholarship. And last, but not least, it’s a great school for engineers.


What do you hope to do after graduation?: I hope to get a job that allows me to travel for a bit, but ultimately, I’d like to come back to Wyoming.


What would you tell a prospective student who is considering attending UW?: Stay on top of school, but make time to unwind, because you’ll burn out pretty quick.


What is your favorite part about UW?: A student has access to a lot more stuff than a community college. There is so much more going on here, and so many more people to interact with.


Do you have a favorite spot on campus or in town?: My favorite stop is the top floor of the Engineering Education and Research Building. It’s got a great view, it’s close to the lab where I work and it’s a nice place to study.


What are some of your hobbies?: I enjoy playing guitar, spending time outdoors, or just hanging out with my friends. We don’t have to get too wild to have fun.
