Name: Trent Bronnenberg


Hometown: Cody, Wyo.


Class: Senior


Major: Physiology and Molecular Biology


Why did you choose UW for your education?: I chose to attend the University of Wyoming because many of the school's values aligned with my goals. The professors and students here are incredible and provide a small-town feel to the campus. As both my parents are UW alumni, it was a very easy decision to attend UW for my undergraduate education.


What do you hope to do after graduation?: My ultimate career goal is to become a medical physician. After I graduate from UW, I will be attending medical school, and, hopefully, will return to Wyoming to practice medicine in the future.


What would you tell a prospective student who is considering attending UW?: I would tell them that this experience is truly what you make it. While I have been in attendance at UW, I have been able to find my niche. Between my involvement in multiple organizations on campus, I have been able to realize what my career desires are, and I have been able to give back to the community in multiple ways. UW is an amazing place with amazing people, and the way to experience it all is through putting yourself out there and taking risks.


What is your favorite part about UW?: My favorite part about UW is the small-town atmosphere of the campus. I spend the majority of my childhood in Meeteetse, Wyo., a small town about 30 miles south of Cody. Attending UW was a new experience for me, but it was an amazing one at that. Every professor I have interacted with is extremely easy to approach and they have always been willing to help in whatever facet they can. The students on campus have bought into the sense of community and work with one other to help in whatever way possible. There are many options for making various connections and interacting with community members to benefit not only the community, but the students themselves.


Do you have a favorite spot on campus or in town?: On the UW campus, my favorite spot is the Enzi STEM Building. Here, I am able to work on my studies in a place that is dedicated to advancement of students. The building itself allows for an incredible amount of natural light into the building, so as a student who studies there frequently, I don’t feel as if I am locked away in a dungeon somewhere trying to slog through material.


What are some of your hobbies?: I truly love the outdoors and relish anytime I have the chance to be in the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, hunting, fishing, Nordic and Alpine skiing, woodworking, and baseball. Living in Laramie has allowed me to continue to enjoy these activities, while pursuing a world-class education.
