          • Testimony
            2004-2009, Bachelor of Arts

            The University of Wyoming is one of the most accessible higher educational institutions based on professor interaction, online education opportunities, and comprehensive learning experiences. I was able to attend on a four year scholarship from the President's scholarship award. My academic advisers were very helpful in aiding with my educational track and graduation requirements. I developed long-lasting friendships and scholarly comrades during my tenure. The campus is also beautiful, especially in the summer, and modern art graces the campus with an enlightenment feel. I could not recommend UW more for any young adult seeking further education. Aside from the stumbling sports teams, the resources for students on campus and the affordability truly make UW one of the best colleges in the nation.
