LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming is working to increase the number of full-time freshman students who come back for their sophomore year.

UW Vice President for Student Affairs Sara Axelson presented a plan to the Board of Trustees meeting last week that seeks to retain 80 percent of first-year full-time students by 2016.

The retention rate was 76 percent last for such students.

By comparison, Colorado State University had 84 percent retention of first-year full-time students, the University of Colorado had 83 percent and the University of Northern Colorado had 67 percent.

The Associated Press reports that it’s hoped that UW’s four-year and five-year graduation rates improve as a result of more freshman students coming back for the following year.
