Forbes recently came out with a list of the best colleges in every state. Naturally, I wanted to see what Wyoming had in store. I've gotta admit, I was a little surprised, but maybe I shouldn't have been.

Wyoming's Best College: University of Wyoming

Okay, maybe I wasn't so surprised.

Opening in 1886, it's a university that people from all over the United States and beyond flock to attend, and no reason why not. Seven colleges, 180 areas of study, over 200 student organizations on site and a 75-foot Brontosaurus skeleton.

It's also near great recreational activities from skiing to fishing and more. You're not going to find that feature with any college in, say, New York.

So, there you have it, Forbes says University of Wyoming is the best college in the state and many would agree as well.
