  • Meet Holly. As a first generation and transfer student from Sheridan, Wyo., she is looking to begin her career as a speech-language pathologist- a dream of hers since high school.

    While in school, Holly worked with Ark Regional Services, joined the McNair Scholars Program, led by two professors, Erin Bush and Mary Jo Cooler Hidecker, and worked full-time to put herself through school.

    Busy was an understatement, however, through all her extracurriculars she realized her passion for research, specifically from working with her two McNair Scholars mentors.

    "I wouldn't have realized my passion for research without Professors Bush and Hidecker" She says. "After you start doing research, you start to wonder more and more."

    Now, as she looks to spread her wings, Holly credits the professors at the University for going out of their way to support her.

    "It's such a nurturing environment," She says. "Your professors believe in you, and you're not just a number in the classroom."

  • Meet Evan, a recent alum of UW. His curiosity was key in his education, and now he is reaping the benefits after as one of UW’s first students to participate in the Consortium of Overseas Student Teaching. He had the opportunity to head to Spain to work with students who are beginning to learn english.

    "It's a very exciting program,” he adds. “It's a very good opportunity to send some students overseas to see how other countries live and especially how their education systems work."


    Now, with overseas experience, he plans to utilize his Elementary Education degree and teach English as a second language in either Korea, Japan or Hong Kong.

  • Meet Megan. The experience of taking online classes through UW at a Distance was the perfect choice for her.

    “The teachers were great,” she adds. “The distance education that UW has is fantastic.”

    Megan studied through the social work program and did her thesis project on UW’s preparedness to address student veteran needs. Since her husband had been in the military, she had firsthand exposure to some of the things veterans were experiencing on campus. And thanks to her hard work, the results of her study were published in the Journal of Veterans Studies.

    “UW really understands the state we live in and what the needs are,” Megan says. “Both programs that I was in were considered distance programs. Even though I was in Laramie for the master’s program, they had students from all across the state. It felt like you were having that teamwork and collective classroom experience, even though we had people who were miles apart.”

    After graduating, she now serves as program coordinator for the eight branches of Greater Wyoming Big Brothers Big Sisters.

  • Welcome to 7220 ft! Orientation is happening now on campus as First Year, Non-traditional, Transfer and International students are touring around Laramie until the end of the month.

    As an orientation leader herself, Colleen Floyd recommends becoming as involved as you can while on campus, and orientation is a great first step in doing so.

    "Our strength is that we are like family. If you say you are interested in something, a faculty or staff member will swoop you up and want to give you those opportunities."

    Further questions about orientation can be answered by following this link: http://bit.ly/2Rb1mIn

  • Meet Dylan. Growing up in Laramie, the University in his hometown checked all the boxes. Now, he has three years down in pharmacy school and is looking to see what is next.

    His college experience has led him to travel to London, Edinburgh, Paris and Venice for a History of Medicine led faculty-led trip, as well as our nation’s captial.

    Dylan is also a part of the new Health Equity Leadership Program — an exchange program between UW and Howard University in Washington, D.C. This gives him the opportunity to tour the medical facilities in D.C., and for those students to tour the medical facilities here in Wyoming.

    As a member of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists and a researcher in multiple labs, Dylan has expanded his knowledge and is ready to chase his dreams of becoming a pharmacist in a hospital.

  • Meet Zayne. He recently graduated with with his degree in environment and natural resources, environmental systems science, with minors in sustainability and outdoor leadership.

    During his time as a student, Zayne capitalized on the opportunity to study abroad, where he participated in two field courses. First in Jackson Hole, second in Chamonix, France. While overseas, Zayne noticed the similarities to the Grand Tetons.

    "It's basically the recreational hub of Europe — what some people consider a Jackson,” he adds. “It's really interesting to see how mountains and recreation are deeply rooted in their culture. Taking what you learn and being able to apply it prior to graduating is invaluable."

    Zayne is now looking towards his future, and plans to lead guide trips and utilize his outdoor leadership education to then potentially pursue jobs in science communication and nonprofit work.

  • Meet Montorie. He embodies the team motto of “Living Cowboy Tough.” A busy schedule with workouts, practices, classes, tests and competing at locations across the country, the load can be taxing on a student athlete. But after just three years in college, he graduated this spring as one of the top wrestlers in the nation.

    After going 31-10 the previous season, Montorie competed at the NCAA Wrestling National Championships in Pittsburgh but fell short of reattaining All-America status from his sophomore year. In three years, his career record stands at 66-17. But success hasn’t just come on the mat for the Altus, Okla native.

    “I’ve balanced academics and athletics well. I’ve maintained a 3.76 (GPA) while being here and competing at the Division 1 level,” he says. “Being a student-athlete is fun because it gives me more opportunities to connect with the community and use my platform to make more and bigger differences with my position.”

    At UW, his involvement includes the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and volunteering with Special Olympics athletes. In addition, he completed an internship with the Albany County Sheriff’s Office last summer. Since graduating, Montorie plans to pursue his law degree.

    Already a 50/50 partner in a cattle business with his father, he is looking to see more success now that he has a college degree and years of experience under his belt.

    Crediting the professors he had while in class, Bridger believes that the "open-door" policy for students was incredibly important for success in the classroom.

    "Professor-student relationships have been really beneficial for me, " Bridger says. "If you want to pick their brain, they're really there to help you. You don't always get that at a research institution."

  • Meet Jessica. She just graduated with an undergraduate degree in social work, with minors in Spanish and Latino/a studies.

    As a first-generation college student, Jessica's independence grew when she moved to Wyoming, figured out what classes to take, what she wanted to major in, and learned how to live away from home.

    In 2017, Jessica was featured in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle as one of UW's students with DACA immigration status, which led her to become heavily involved with the student group MECha (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan).

    "It takes courage to become involved with the university" Jessica adds. "The University tries to provide events for every community and not just one. Although there isn't a big minority group, they encourage the minority groups to speak up and have their own culture known."

  • Meet Adrian. Finding wonder in modern technology, Adrian Barberis of Laramie, Wy., graduated on May 18 with a degree in computer science.

    Outside of his computer science classes, Adrian works for Assistant Professor Meredith Minear in the Spatial Cognition Lab.

    "She has been doing a lot of studies using virtual reality headsets and an omni-directional treadmill. I had to delve into some of the source code on the treadmill to rewrite it," Adrian told us. "I've gained a better sense of creating code for future use. We'll be presenting a poster at the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) conference on virtual reality this spring."

    As if Adrian was not doing enough, he holds various leadership positions. As President of the Upsilon Pi Epsilon, the computer science honors society and the Japanese Language Club, he kept himself busy when in school. For his summer plans, he will be chaperoning one of the honors classes to Japan.

    Beyond his studies and extracurriculars on campus, Adrian finds himself learning new topics, going to conferences, looking into jobs in the private industry and preparing himself for graduate school in computer science-- "I'll be looking at Stanford, Carnegie Mellon- and the big tech schools."

  • Meet Nicole. Graduating with her Master's in kinesiology last Saturday, she is now on track to complete her Ph.D. program at Auburn University's biomechanics program.

    She chose UW after a recommendation from a former professor in California. One look at the University of Wyoming was convincing enough.

    "UW offered me the Underrepresented Domestic Minority Graduate Assistantship," she adds. "And I was drawn to the faculty and department.”

    Nicole's thesis revolved around high intensity training, while focusing on kidney injury markers, muscle damage markers, hydration and different physiology components.

    Aside from research and classes, she is also a graduate assistant, as well as the graduate student representative for the Division of Kinesiology and Health, on the College of Health Sciences Research committee and an instructor at CrossFit 7220.

From intramural football and basketball, to a cadet in the Army ROTC program, to a member in Students for Life and Navigators, he stays busy. But his experience at UW through only two years has also included a study abroad trip to London.

    “You’ll probably never get the opportunity to travel the world again like you have in college,” he adds. “I think I appreciate the country we live in a lot more because I understand where I came from. You come away more educated outside the bubble we live in.”

    Cross’s goal is to become a businessman. “I want to own my own business,” he says. “I want to work with some of my siblings and friends. Engineering and having a technical degree and understanding could be really helpful.”

    Outside of the classroom, she has started a movement called "Respect Africa" which underlines the importance of mutual respect among all peoples.

    "Telling the story of Africa from different perspectives highlights the commonality of all human races." Olawale adds. "The goal is to inspire both Africans and non-Africans by the showcase of African people, African foods, places, art, achievements, struggles and dreams to foster further investment in the growth of Africa."

    Olawale plays major roles in the Wyoming African Students Association, the National Society of Black Engineers UW Chapter, the International Students and Scholars office and the Global Engagement office, as well as being nominated and selected as one of the 1,000 representatives at the United Nations Youth Assembly.

    Olawale is making an impact that will be cemented in UW's history.

  • Meet Jess, the newest recipient of the Rosemarie Martha Spitaleri Award, given to UW’s most outstanding graduate.

    "I think the small size (of UW and Laramie) can have a lot of benefits with connections and community,” Jess adds. “When you get to more urban spaces, there's more visibility for marginalized groups, but I think since we're so small we all come together"

    Originally from Rock Springs, Wy,. Jess graduated on Saturday with majors in psychology and gender and women’s studies with minors in honors, creative writing and queer studies.

    Stemming from involvement in the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice, Laramie Pridefest, CCK: A Writer's Club, Spectrum, Jess has gained connections, community, and leadership skills that will stick with them as they look towards their future.

  • Students in the wild! Before the semester ended, University of Wyoming College of Business Associate Professor of Marketing Elizabeth Minton took her Market Research class just a bit off campus. They traveled to the remote Ferris Mountains of central Wyoming for a four-day backpacking trip.

    The class is based around investigating the information available to the marketing researcher in the context of launching a nature therapy business. Curriculum in the class included self-discovery activities to identify the need for nature therapy and engage in nature therapy experiences.

    Students also gained leadership skills and perseverance through the experience. It also fostered connection and discussions about life and careers after graduation that you just can't get in the classroom. Students also learned basic backpacking skills, how to overcome tough experiences with a positive, willing attitude, and how to work hard even on little sleep and in less than desirable environmental conditions. In short, they learned grit!
