About Casper College

Casper College is a premier, public, comprehensive two-year institution with a primary focus on student success. The college offers academic transfer programs, career training, continuing education, and basic skills instruction. Casper College provides opportunities and programs to improve quality of life and supports community building and citizenship for the people of Casper, Natrona County, the State of Wyoming, and the World.

Campus information

The college is located in Casper — Wyoming's second largest city located in the geographic center of the state. Wyoming itself is known for its wide-open vistas, amazing scenery and western way of life. Yellowstone Park is five hours away, and Denver is a four-hour drive. Casper College overlooks the city from the foothills of Casper Mountain.

With a population of 60,000, Casper provides many of the amenities found in a large city, but without many of the associated large city hassles. There is always something happening with much to see and do. The Casper Events Center, the Nicolaysen Art Museum, historic Fort Caspar, the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra, the National Historic Trails Center and Casper College's many public events provide a wide variety of cultural opportunities. Casper is also home to a professional indoor football team. Outdoor activities from fishing and camping to golf and water sports abound. Casper Mountain provides winter recreation of skiing, both downhill and cross country, as well as snowmobile trails. The community has an outstanding public school system and quality health care services.
