State, national and international media frequently feature the University of Wyoming and members of its community in stories. Here is a summary of some of the recent coverage:
The Laramie Boomerang reported that a bill was introduced last week that calls for construction of new UW residence halls along 15th Street. The project also calls for additional parking areas.
Laramie city administrators are worried that residence hall construction will permanently close 15th Street, but UW Board of Trustees members say that’s not necessarily the case, reported The Boomerang.
The Boomerang also noted that legislators also may discuss renovations to War Memorial Stadium and the possibility of constructing a new pool facility on the UW campus.
In an interview with Outside Magazine, UW law Professor Noah Novogrodsky said Teton County would shut down without an immigrant workforce. He commented on a new documentary, titled “The Quiet Force,” that focuses on how the immigrant workforce keeps ski communities running.
Outside Magazine also interviewed former UW music Professor Rod Garnett for an article on research that shows how a good music playlist can help ease workouts, reduce fatigue and increase athletic performance by affecting both heart rate and brain waves.
UW is among “the best schools for the money in the U.S.,” according to College Factual, a website that helps students “find and get great deals on the best fit colleges for them.” UW is ranked 10th out of 1,510 colleges nationwide in the website’s latest survey.
The Best Schools ranks UW No. 4 in “The Best Online Doctorate in Online Teaching Programs.” The education website, which provides students with their educational and professional goals, cites UW’s online program for preparing future leaders of K-12 education with its Doctor of Education degree.
UW’s bachelor’s degree in nursing program was ranked 22nd among Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree programs by Value Colleges. The website also recognized UW’s BRAND degree (Bachelors Reach for Accelerated Nursing Degree) as a “great option for students who already hold a baccalaureate degree. This 15-month program is designed to deliver services to Wyoming’s rural areas.”
Yellowstone Gate noted that a first-of-its-kind, big-game migratory atlas produced by the Wyoming Migration Initiative at UW has been published.
A UW release, noting that a new short-film documentary featuring members of the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes, including James Trosper, UW’s director of the High Plains American Indian Research Institute, debuted last week, was published by The Gillette News Record and Sheridan Media.
Sheridan Media published UW’s release noting the research of UW Associate Professor Elizabeth Minton and colleagues. They say religion affects consumer choices on specialty foods.
UW students discussed their research into the ghost town of Acme in Sheridan County, reported Sheridan Media.
UW economist Rob Godby told The Wyoming Tribune Eagle that variables such as differences in oil that make it more expensive or difficult to refine, competition among wholesalers, seasonal costs related to changes at refineries to meet air quality requirements, state fuel tax rates and competitiveness of local retail markets are reasons gas is more expensive in Wyoming than in Colorado.
UW’s release detailing annual Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Dialogue events was published on Laramie Live’s website.
