UW Representatives, President Return to Gillette May 24

May 19, 2016

Representatives of the University of Wyoming will return to Gillette next week to offer individualized support to current or prospective students affected by layoffs in the energy industry in northeast Wyoming.

UW academic advisers and financial aid experts will be available to meet with interested individuals Tuesday, May 24, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. in the UW Center at Gillette College, 300 W. Sinclair St. Appointments may be scheduled with Alyson Hagy, special adviser to the UW president, at or by calling (307) 766-5404.

The special advising sessions in Gillette coincide with a visit by new UW President Laurie Nichols, who will be in Gillette May 24 to meet with local government officials, legislators, media representatives and others. She’s returning to Gillette after speaking during the Gillette College commencement ceremony May 13.

A team of UW academic and financial aid experts visited Gillette April 19-20 to provide information about financial aid, UW’s academic programs, the admissions process and how to transfer to UW from a community college.

UW currently has 300 students from Gillette and about 300 more from other communities in northeast Wyoming. More than 200 students from Campbell County High School and other high schools in the region have been admitted for next year, and nearly 100 students annually transfer to UW from Gillette College and Sheridan College. Many others take UW courses through the university’s Outreach School.

Outreach School Academic Coordinator Dawn Kiesel, who is permanently assigned to the Northern Wyoming Community College District and has an office on the Gillette College campus, remains available at the UW Regional Center, 300 W. Sinclair St. in Gillette, to assist current and prospective students. The office is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, and the phone number is (307) 686-0044.
