 Graphic of Tony Trent


Name: Tony Trent


Hometown: Laramie, Wyo.


Class: Freshman


Major: Computer Science


Why did you choose UW for your education?: I’ve lived in Laramie my entire life and have seen firsthand the incredible opportunities and people that make UW a truly unique experience.


What do you hope to do after graduation?: I hope to become a software designer or possibly continue my education in graduate school.


What would you tell a prospective student who is considering attending UW?: UW is an incredible campus that has countless tools to help you along the way with anything from academics to curing boredom. Additionally, not only is the campus absolutely beautiful, the surrounding area of the Rocky Mountains is certainly worth exploring.


What is your favorite part about UW?: My favorite part about UW is the connections and relationships that I have made with my fellow students and teachers. College is what you make of it, and UW is the perfect place to get a renowned education while also creating lifelong friendships.


Do you have a favorite spot on campus or in town?: My favorite spot on campus is a stone bench outside of the greenhouse that was donated by a former class. It is not only a very aesthetically pleasing spot, but it also it tranquil enough to do some homework while soaking in some sun (or snow!)


What are some of your hobbies?: I am also a music minor, so I play in Western Thunder Marching Band and practice music mainly. I also like to read whenever I get the chance.
