Beautiful campus in a ruggedly beautiful area. Top 25 in the country for geological graduate programs. Wish they had accepted me for my master's :(
I made some memories for life at Laramie . Sorry this is the place to rate the University, I would say the University is better than average. Student-teacher ratio is great! No huge classes. Great for graduate level research and teaching.I got my PhD in Education from UW. It's been great experience. I had opportunities of working on several research projects with some renowned scholars. It was great experience overall. I am an international student.I will never forget the warmth I received from the local people. Loved it!
