Welcome to your “everything guide to college” issue of UWyo Magazine. In this issue, we answer incoming students’ most pressing questions, from how to decorate your dorm room and make friends, to how to pay for college and everything in between. We called on current students and recent graduates, as well as university professors and admissions representatives, to give you their best advice.

As this issue goes to press, the world faces its greatest challenge of our generation: COVID-19. High school seniors suddenly saw cancellations of milestone events such as prom and graduation. College students packed up and returned home to finish the semester online. How things will unfold for universities in the next few months is uncertain, but luckily we live in the age of technology, and virtual learning and virtual events can step in to help. 

The University of Wyoming remains 100 percent committed to current and future students. At UW, you are never just a number. That’s one of the many things that set us apart. We welcome you as family and friends. Professors will know your name, and faculty and staff want you to succeed from beginning to end.

High school and transfer students considering or committed to UW can stay engaged by joining us on Facebook and Instagram. You can also take a virtual tour and explore colleges. We invite you to watch our Better Days Ahead video. Our admissions team is reviewing applications just as it always has, and admitted students should confirm their enrollment by May 1 or can request an extension to June 1. If you need anything or have questions, please call 307-766-5160 or email admissions@uwyo.edu.

As you’ll see in this issue of UWyo Magazine, the University of Wyoming offers an amazing education in a beautiful setting with supportive faculty and unprecedented opportunities, all at one of the most affordable costs in the nation.

We welcome you as future Cowboys and Cowgirls!
