Name: Hailey Moss


Hometown: Douglas, Wyo.


Class: Freshman


Major: Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Management


Why did you choose UW for your education?: For me, choosing UW was the only option growing up, and now, I’m so glad I’m here! My parents are both alumni of the University of Wyoming and have told me since I could understand that I could go to any college I wanted, as long as it was in Laramie. Luckily for them, this is where I have always wanted to go. I chose UW for its proximity to the outdoors, as well as the people. People in Wyoming are unlike any other humans in the world. Since living in Douglas, Wyo., I have loved meeting the nice, caring and driven people who live in this great state. For me, it was about having the best education and having the best opportunities, which I found here at UW.


What do you hope to do after graduation?: After graduation I hope to become a curator of a museum or an art gallery. I would love to stay in Wyoming and share its beauty and history with the world.


What would you tell a prospective student who is considering attending UW?: I would tell prospective students to talk to some of the students and staff, as it really helps to get honest opinions about if this is the right place for you. I would also recommend, if possible, going to at least one sporting event for UW with your family before college. It is a great way to see how the university family comes together and see if you like the atmosphere of the college.


What is your favorite part about UW?: My favorite part about UW would have to be the camaraderie found in every aspect of the college. From the classroom to the games, each person is cheering each other on to be their very best.


Do you have a favorite spot on campus or in town?: My favorite spot on campus would have to be in the library. I am a history buff, so being surrounded by all of the history books and having a quiet space to work on homework and study is very important to me.


What are some of your hobbies?: Some of my hobbies include playing instruments, hiking, paddle boarding, skiing, reading, painting and drawing. I love anything outside, which makes Laramie a perfect place!
