UW Brand Ambassadors

Graphic of Kyra Stevenson


Name: Kyra Stevenson


Hometown: Aurora, Colo.


Class: Freshman


Major: Marketing (minor in Graphic Design)


Why did you choose UW for your education?: I chose UW because of the proximity to my hometown. I can go home on the weekends to hang out with my dogs if I want, but I also am far enough away I don’t have to go home every weekend. I also chose UW for its amazing community. I love being able to walk around downtown and have kind people from all walks of life surround you. The town of Laramie has a friendliness and a feel about the community most places can’t replicate. Finally, one of the reasons I came to UW is the abundant amount of opportunity to explore the outdoors. I love being able to go outside every weekend and try something new, and UW makes it easy and accessible for me to do.


What do you hope to do after graduation?: I hope to work with a company that I am truly passionate about in the marketing department. I would love to be a graphic designer and express the ideas of a company through the layout and design of a product.


What would you tell a prospective student who is considering attending UW?: Something I wish people would have told me when considering UW is that this community gives you so much opportunity to explore whatever interest you may have. Choosing UW gives you the opportunity to do whatever you put your mind to. Feel free to explore, change your hobbies, meet new people, and be open to a completely different perspective, or even grow deeper in passion you have before. UW is not short on possibilities, so it’s whatever you choose to make it.


What is your favorite part about UW?: My favorite part of UW is the big university feel, in a small-town setting. There are thousands of people that go to UW. You could meet a different person every day with a different story, and never meet them all, but you walk into Washakie Dining Center see so many familiar faces—it never seems like you’re alone.


Do you have a favorite spot on campus or in town?: My favorite spot in town would have to be the Vedauwoo climbing area east of Laramie. I love hiking and rock climbing up there, and there are some amazing places to camp. It also is only a 30-minute drive from campus, so I don’t have to go far to enjoy the nature Laramie has to offer.


What are some of your hobbies?: I obviously love to be outside, so most of my hobbies include being outdoors for hiking, finding a cool place to hang my hammock and skiing. But I also enjoy a good book, traveling, listening to some good music, and anything that involves an adventure with my friends.
