Most give UW an 'A' or 'B'

Dec 19, 2012 - The Associated Press

LARAMIE -- A survey indicates that Wyoming residents are happy with how the University of Wyoming is being run.

A survey conducted in October by the Wyoming Survey Analysis Center shows that a strong majority of the state's citizens believe UW has improved in recent years, is spending its budget wisely and is reaching out across the state.

Asked to rate the university the same way students are graded, 39 percent of respondents gave UW an "A'' and 35 percent offered a "B'' rating. The average of all responses equated to 3.31 on a 4.0 grading scale. That grade point average for UW is the highest of the 15 election-year surveys taken in the past 28 years.

The survey contacted 668 Wyoming citizens across the state by telephone. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
