UW Pride

A reason to stay connected to UW

Half Acre RennovationA key component of the University of Wyoming Alumni Association’s mission is “to foster a spirit of loyalty and community among its alumni.” We build community by bringing alumni together at UWAA- hosted events and functions on campus, throughout Wyoming or around the country. Increasingly, alumni are staying connected to UW through online community resources, including WyoAlumni, UWAA Mobile App, UWAA website and multiple social media networking initiatives.

Networking with other enthusiastic UW alumni in person or online is among the most significant benefits of staying connected to your alma mater through the alumni association.
