UW Pride Overview

Go for Gold

The University of Wyoming was founded in 1886, when Wyoming was still a territory. In September 1887, UW opened its doors to 42 students and 5 faculty members-as befitted the university of "The Equality State" both the students and faculty included women from the first day. In the 125 years since the University of Wyoming was founded, we have grown into a nationally-recognized research institution that boasts more than 13,000 students from all 50 states and 90 countries, 197 academic programs, and more than 700 accomplished faculty providing a high-quality education in world-class facilities. We can only imagine UW's state-wide, national and international impact over the next 125 years!
