Fellow UW students,
We are Shelby Garstad, Alexander Landt and Kristine Jackson. As students enrolled in COJO 3070 – Communication Research, we must complete a research paper in the style of those found in academic journals.

Our chosen topic is the perceptions and stereotypes attributed to bearded men at the University of Wyoming. As part of our research project we are comparing our results to those obtained by two UW professors in the 1970s.

To complete our research, we are asking for UW students between the ages of 18 and 24 to complete our survey by following the included hyperlink below. The survey takes only 5-7 minutes to complete, and every completed survey contributes immensely to the success of our research.

Your voluntary participation means a great deal to us. Best of luck for an enjoyable remainder of the semester!

Thank you for your time,
Shelby Garstad, Alexander Landt & Kristine Jackson

No Labels

No Labels is an organization dedicated to resolving the gridlock in Congress by helping Democrats, Republicans, and Independents reach across the aisle and work together. Our goal is to create a new politics of problem-solving by asking that representatives from all parties sit down and discuss solving problems, by working from a common set of goals. Currently, we have over seventy members of Congress who support our mission, as well as the goals presented in our National Strategic Agenda.

While the national organization itself has made a significant amount of progress, we believe that student leaders are the key towards ensuring this movement makes a visible impact in the near future. For this reason, we are attempting to establish college chapters all across the nation that would work to further the goals of our organization. So far, we have set up just over 60 college chapters nationwide, and we would love to have The University of Wyoming join that list.

Student’s who start chapters on university campuses will have the opportunity to participate in a month long internship in New Hampshire this summer, as well as to return for a National Conference on Oct. 5th of this year. This incredible opportunity is a tremendous segway into working in political organizing and campaigning, and provides students with an opportunity to affect real change in American Politics. We hope that students at The University of Wyoming would like to be a part of that change!

If you know of any students who would be interested in starting a No Labels chapter on The University of Wyoming’s campus, please have them email me at, so I can give them further information about what exactly this endeavor entails.
