Favorite part about UW: My favorite part about the University of Wyoming is Prexy's pasture. When you step on Prexy's you can feel the heartbeat of campus and that is where I fell in love with UW. The big boulders and spruce trees on Prexy's make you feel that you are walking in a forest vs a college campus. No other college campus is like the University of Wyoming!

Favorite part about UW: The University of Wyoming Provides countless opportunities for students to push themselves and get out of their comfort zone. With our close proximity to so many outdoor spaces and our top-notch outdoor programs, we have the ability to help students experience the great outdoors. The community surrounding the University is also second to none. Very rarely will you find such a close-knit group of people who care so much about the same things. My personal favorite thing about UW is coming into town on any game day and seeing the whole town in brown and gold, it's something you have to love.

Favorite part about UW: My favorite thing about the University of Wyoming is the fact that no matter who you are or where you're from, there is a place for you here. We have hundreds of different organizations, many dedicated faculty and staff members, and thousands of friendly students who all share a passion for making the world a better place. On a more personal note, I moved here all the way from Michigan, which was quite the trek. I graduated from Central Michigan University back in December 2022, and was heavily involved on campus during my time there. Leaving was a very difficult thing to do, but coming to UW made the transition into the next chapter of my life so much easier. By the end of my first week on campus, it already felt like home. My fellow staff members have been incredibly supportive, I've been offered plenty of great opportunities, and most importantly, I've had a lot of fun! It's a great place to be, the state's pride for this university is truly unreal. It feels amazing to be a part of another college community where everyone is so excited to be here!
