Saturday U is a collaborative program designed to connect top UW professors with life-long learners in Jackson Hole, Gillette, Sheridan, and Rock Springs. This free college experience offers an opportunity to exercise the mind without homework, or tests - the only requirement is a love of learning. Offered in each location 2-3 times a year, Saturday U is sponsored by the University of Wyoming, UW Foundation and Wyoming Humanities Council. It is presented by Central Wyoming College, National Museum of Wildlife Art and Teton County Library Foundation, Gillette College, and Sheridan College.
