#WhereInWyo is a monument dedicated to Lowell O’Bryan, an agriculture student who died in 1922 when he was thrown from a horse at the celebration of the arrival of incoming President Arthur G. Crane? The tragic day started off with much fanfare as students rode out in Western regalia to stop Crane’s car at the outskirts of Laramie, “abduct” him by “posse” and transfer him to a stagecoach for the remainder of the trip to campus. An expert horseman, O’Bryan made it his job to ensure each horse was a safe mount for posse members. In the process, one of the horses began to buck and charge toward a group of students. O’Bryan, attempting to dismount and lead the horse away, caught his foot in a stirrup and was dragged and kicked for 30 feet, knocking him unconscious and putting him in critical condition. He died eight days later at the age of 23. Shaken by his death, O’Bryan’s classmates raised the money and support necessary to erect a monument to memorialize the young man. Built in 1927, it originally stood where the Biological Sciences Building is today, but was moved to its present location to accommodate campus restructuring. Now, it stands as a long-forgotten reminder of one of the few, if not the only, students who died during a university-sponsored activity.

Meet Garrett. When he chose to study visual arts at UW, little did he know he’d soon visit some of Europe’s top museums during a year abroad at The Netherlands’ University College Utrecht. . . “I know what it feels like to celebrate on New Year’s Eve in the Puerta del Sol in Madrid; I’ve felt the chill of a windy January day on the Mediterranean in Marseille; I’ve drunk hot glüwein in a holiday market in Hamburg; and I’ve listened to the fountains of la Alhambra in Granada,” says Garrett. . . Life-changing is the term many students use to describe their time abroad. And each year, hundreds of UW students study abroad for a semester, a year or a couple of weeks in locations around the world. UW’s Richard D. and Lynne V. Cheney Study-Abroad Scholarship Endowment is one of the largest land-grant university study-abroad scholarship endowments in the United States, which makes travel affordable for students. The trained staff in UW’s Education Abroad Office helps students choose from a variety of options, including exchanges, faculty-led courses and internships. On the following pages, four current students share their experiences overseas. . .
