University of Wyoming student groups were recently recognized for their efforts during the 17th annual Recognized Student Organization (RSO) Awards of Excellence banquet.

They host hundreds of events on and off campus; attend conferences that enhance their professional development; and participate in service activities that impact the university and local community.
