The Big Event is an opportunity for University of Wyoming students to say thank you to residents of the greater Laramie community for the support they provide to college students. Our goal is to make this a BIG EVENT so we can say a BIG THANK YOU.
We encourage all students and faculty to participate.
The Alumni Office encourages activities throughout Homecoming week and are happy to provide publicity for any UW department or downtown business sponsoring an activity. Your activity will be promoted in the online version of the Homecoming schedule at www.uwyo.edu/homecoming and in the printed booklet that is available during Homecoming registration. The event form will be posted online following the announcement of Homecoming 2017.
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.
Details to be announced.
