LARAMIE — Campus life at the University of Wyoming has largely remained the same following its president’s recent resignation, some students say.

For senior Nichole McGee, the focus has been on end-of-semester exams, not high-level administrative changes.

“That’s not really high on our list,” McGee said of former UW President Bob Sternberg’s resignation and the personnel changes that ensued prior to his departure. McGee said she heard of the changes through email notifications.

Senior Tanner Williams said Monday he has not noticed any impact on his campus life following Sternberg’s resignation.

But for Mary Freeman, a third-year student at UW’s College of Law and one of the signees of an open letter denouncing Sternberg’s presidential task force to evaluate the College of Law earlier this month, the atmosphere on campus has changed.

“Sternberg’s resignation brought a lot of initial relief to the law school, to the law students,” Freeman said. “Particularly at the law school, there were students who took a greater interest.”

Questions still loom for Freeman about why Sternberg resigned and how a future presidential search will be conducted.

“There wasn’t a lot of closure or recognition about what happened,” she said. “[B]efore we really move forward, I hope we can understand better what happened.”

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
