2019RAppin Conference
Share |



Hosted by The University of Wyoming


Restless curiosity. Whatever happened to that? When did we stop thinking up new questions and daring to chase down their answers? Should we blindly follow predetermined paths when they don't lead us to anything new? Should we really be on autopilot when there's still so much to explore off the beaten trail. The world needs more wonder. More outside thinkers hungry for a challenge. The world needs more fearless leaders. Leaders are diverse and come in every sex, shape, color and creed. It's not what you are that makes you a leader, but who you are. It's a shared spirit. The kind of spirit that longs for something to prove. The kind that emboldens those who possess it to stand on the perimeter and howl into the unknown with unbendable optimism. The world needs more people to pick up the torch of progress and fearlessly venture onwards.  The world needs more FEARLESS LEADERS.

With a rich history, outdoor adventure, culture and agriculture roots, Laramie offers a unique lifestyle. Located in southeastern Wyoming, Laramie has a population of around 30,000 providing a neighborly atmosphere and a warm small town feel with all of the amenities and entertainment of a large city. Laramie sits at 7220 feet and is surrounded by the Snow Range Mountains, Vedauwoo and Medicine Bow National Forest offering beautiful scenery with an abundant amount of outdoor activities. Laramie has outdoor adventures all year long with cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in winter and hiking and fishing in the summer. 

As the home of the only four-year university in Wyoming, the University of Wyoming offers a wide range of sporting events, cultural opportunities to please all crowds. Our beautiful historic downtown is full of unique shopping, coffee shops and local restaurants. Check out the downtown buildings for artistic murals by local artists. As you wander through historic downtown, you can still relive our rich history. In Laramie in 1870, Louisa Swain became the world's first woman voter. Visit the Wyoming Territorial Prison and Ivinson Mansion to learn about the tent railroad town Laramie once was.

Laramie is a bustling town with technology, academia, industry and agriculture making it a unique mix of residents. Laramie has a little bit of everything for whatever adventure or lifestyle you are looking for.
