Forever West of the Rat Race

Hit the Jackpot in Big Wyoming

It’s all about the cowboys and buffalo here in Wyoming. The Cowboy State is home to 12 colleges and universities in total. However, what makes it unique is how diverse these opportunities are. From community colleges to a tribal college, Wyoming also runs an impressive state school system and a few private and for-profit institutions.* Graduates of Wyoming colleges go on to work at companies like Bighorn Airways, Gillette News-Record, and High Plains Uranium.* Due to its abundance of natural resources and picturesque landscapes, Wyoming students tend to gravitate toward agricultural and environmental majors. And with lower cost of living and lower unemployment, why not take advantage of the great Wyoming opportunities?

On your weekends, there are plenty of museums and historical sites to explore. Wyoming is known for its rich Native American history and also plays host to plenty of hiking trails, cutting edge winter sports, and even guided fossil hunts. When you’re ready to get refreshed and perhaps meet some new folks in town, head on over to one of the rustic wooden bars located throughout the state. The Dip Diner, located in Medicine Bow, Wyoming is the world’s largest Jade Bar. Cut from a massive boulder, you’ll be taken in by the authentic Native American and Wild West artifacts. Over in Jackson, the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar has effectively captured the pioneer spirit of Wyoming. This establishment is divided into half saloon, half museum. Head on over to Wyoming when you’re ready for a Wild West adventure of an education.
