"The University of Wyoming is a great school. They offer a wide variety of degree options that can be completed on the main campus or through an outreach program. Having the option to get my Master's in my hometown was paramount for me. That simple option is why I was even able to pursue my dream."

  • Degree: Business Administration
"I already was working toward the career of my dreams when I decided to go back to school to get a degree. I attended all of my classes online due to my work schedule. I felt that the instructors really cared about what they we teaching and were quick to respond any time I had a question. Online classes are not for everyone but I would recommend the University of Wyoming for an online Bachelor's in Business Administration. I have even applied to complete an online Master's degree at this school."

"The University of Wyoming is an excellent school in which to pursue an education in terms of quality and affordability. There are many benefits of attending UW, including a wide array of educational opportunities, but also for students to engage in other activities outside of their curriculum."

"The University of Wyoming Kinesiology program prepared me exceptionally for a graduate program in health care. They emphasize professionalism, work ethic, and gave me a great foundation of knowledge in the sciences. The department feels like a family and I was comfortable talking to all of my professors about coursework, professional goals, or just general life advice."

"The University of Wyoming is the "happy-medium" choice for any student. It's not too big, but not too small. You have lots of class options but class size is small. It's incredibly affordable and there are plenty of scholarship opportunities for any willing individual who wants to apply. A small town feel with all the big time perks."

"The University of Wyoming, like all institutions of "higher learning" is a business out to make money. I guess the good thing about UW is that it's relatively cheap for residents and half way decent education. I really don't remember what I learned besides writing long papers in a single night."

"Some of my ratings are not necessarily fair because I do not have anything else to compare it to and my needs are likely to be different than someone else needs and expectations. Overall, I am having a great experience but still have a year to go!"

"Mine is a small program, and there are both advantages and disadvantages that come with that. There is great faculty support and availability here, but there re not many classes offered in the field I am interested in, and I therefore sometimes feel I have to settle for taking classes I don't necessarily want in order to meet my credit requirements. Overall, I do really like this program and the professors here are world class."

"The faculty is amazing and always available to work with you. I don't see a major con in this program--the location (tons of outdoor activities) is fantastic and the people are friendly, welcoming, and passionate about their work."

  • Degree: Anthropology
"The program is very cheap and affordable, and well rounded. However, if you are looking to focus in something other than archaeology you might want to look for something else as 75% of the faculty are archaeologists."

  • Degree: Counseling Psychology
"The graduate program is based primarily on practical learning in comparison to academics. Focus in more on how to be a counselor and work in the field as a counselor. Academics is primarily focused on self reflection papers and personal thoughts and opinions. There are not many research based papers. The faculty are some of the most supportive people on campus. However, the program itself lacks diversity of individuals such as other US states and countries. Most individuals who are in the program are from Wyoming. Courses lack global thinking or global perspective."

"Top notch school that has excellent instruction both on campus and online. The financial aid department always tries to help the student with ways to afford their education and explains how financial aid works with their university. Originally I started with classes on campus but switched to online only classes. Both methods of instruction are very effective. I wished they offered the Master's degree I am pursuing online, but they do not, otherwise I would still be attending this university. This was a great experience and was very affordable as well."
