  • The dorms are small and very pricey. The small rooms you share with someone can get very hot and the communal bathrooms aren't very up to date. Although pricey and…

    The dinning offers a buffet, meaning you get to choose different things everyday. They also offer gluten friendly options, so if you have different dietary needs, they can be met.

    There aren't many vegan options, but there are a lot of vegetarian options, and those are pretty good. If you don't have any dietary restrictions, you'll probably like it.

    Most of the time Washakie, the dining hall, has amazing food, but it can also seem repetitive and sometimes the food can be under par.

    THIS IS THE BEST PART. Aside from the schooling of course. The food is so diverse and there are options for people with any sort of special diet. There are so many different stations that it's difficult to get sick of the food. Washakie knows how to do it.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    I've heard nothing but great things about Greek Life at UW. Though I am not apart of it, it is a great opportunity for those who are interested. The cool thing about Greek Life at UW is that all of the houses do a great job at keeping students involved with them. They put on things such as haunted houses, pancake breakfasts, and other various activities. Everyone I have talked to who are apart of Greek Life, really do love it. Keep in mind though, that it is not free. It does cost a good amount of money to be apart of, but just like the University as a whole, it is significantly cheaper than any other big university you'll find.

    There's a good variety of fraternities and sororities to choose from, they are very nice and inviting, but Greek life isn't for everyone, they have meetings weekly to keep their houses in order and they seem to understand the boundaries set by the school.

    I am not a part of Greek life but I have several friends who are. I know that our chapters are very much a part of the entire UW community and help put on events for the whole school as well as their own events. I have gone to our homecoming sing contest many times and had a great time with the people in Fraturnities and Sororities.

    It is not what the stereotype would have you think. They're friendly and open. They don't have silly competitions between each other.

    Greek life at the University of Wyoming is starting to grow. It has been small for a while and now with new leadership there is a positive future for it. The fraternities and sororities are very involved on campus and in the community and push each other through healthy competition to be leaders on the campus. I am in a fraternity and I would strongly recommend Greek life to anyone else because of all the memories I've made and people I've met. The people you meet will impact you for the rest of your life and help you become the person you want to be. Greek life does events such as socials among other Greek houses, philanthropy events, campus events, community events, member events, and much more. Rush week is at the start of every school year for new students to see each house and get an idea about what each house is about. That is where you can see which place is a fit for you if you are interest and if not it is a good place to meet some really cool people.
