Hot in the Shops- January 2023

WyoTech welcomed a group of new students to start off the new year!

On Monday, January 2nd, WyoTech welcomed 130 new students into their classes.  These students are spread out evenly across our programs, bringing a fresh excitement to learn to the Automotive, Diesel, and Collision and Refinishing.  Many of these students, having come from out of state, had to fight their way through a winter storm that occurred over the weekend, demonstrating their enthusiasm and determination to begin their training in the trades industry.  Gage Hanson, a Diesel student, had a 14 hour drive to get from his hometown in Oregon to Laramie.  Having gotten stuck in Rock Springs, Wyoming, for a couple days, he got a first-hand experience of the beautiful Wyoming weather.  “I knew Rock Springs pretty well by the end of it,” he jokes.  He recommends that other students from out of state learn to layer their winter gear and “dress warm.”

Many students have taken full advantage of the cold weather to learn how to ski, snowboard, icefish, and other winter sports.  They have bonded with fellow students and cultivated lifelong friendships through many of these activities, and many say they cannot wait to get out and enjoy the outdoors again.
