Why I Came to the University of Wyoming

Brittany Wienholz
"Being from California, I never thought I would end up in a cowboy state like Wyoming, yet my experience at the University of Wyoming has proven to be enriching through insightful coursework, personable and available faculty, small class sizes, and great networking opportunities throughout a large, yet very small in population, state." Brittany Wienholz
