Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Awards

The recognition of alumni who have distinguished themselves after graduation is a testament to the quality of the academic and student life at the University of Wyoming. The Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Awards have served as a long-standing Homecoming tradition recognizing outstanding UW alumni and individuals who have attained excellence in their careers or professions or have provided outstanding service through time, talent, affection, and dedication to the University of Wyoming and thus brought honor to UW. The first Distinguished Alumnus was Admiral Emory S. Land in 1953 and the first Medallion Service Award Recipient was Lloyd Eaton in 1968. To date, 190 and 37 individuals have been recognized as Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Award Recipients. A list of the recipients can be found here.


University of Wyoming Alumni Band Association

The University of Wyoming Alumni Band Association (UWABA) consists of individuals who at some point during their college careers were in one or more of the UW bands. Whether a person was in a band one semester or their entire time at UW, anyone who participated in a UW band is welcome to be a member. We meet annually at Homecoming to see old friends and meet new ones, and break out our instruments to play in the parade, and join the Western Thunder Marching Band in a performance during the football game. For more information, go to our Facebook page or our website.
