Student employees have been hired for Saddle Up to be successful and the Cowboy Coaching program is at the center of the effort.

While there is already a team of Cowboy Coaches in place, we have hired nearly 150 Pokes Packs Leaders who will welcome new students to campus, fill supplemental instruction roles and guide incoming students through their Saddle Up week.

Stay tuned for exciting things our Pokes Pack Leaders will be doing!


What is Saddle Up?

In an effort to prepare students for college life, UW has announced the kickoff of the Saddle Up college preparation camp from August 14 - 19, 2022. During the week prior to the start of fall 2022 classes, incoming students will go through a week-long onboarding process to better prepare them for life at UW. 

This UW academic preparation program will provide incoming students with a realistic, rigorous, fun, and exciting entry to college-level work, with an emphasis on how to be successful in a college class. Saddle Up will give students real-world college preparation on a small scale, with classes that include homework and exams with feedback on how to improve performance (low stakes), fitness and wellness time, college connection time, study time, and essential skills sessions. This experience will arm incoming students with the academic skills and mindset they will need to be successful at the University of Wyoming.
