LARAMIE, Wyo. - The president of the University of Wyoming delivered a rosy report on the state's flagship institution in his annual address about the campus.

President Tom Buchanan on Thursday highlighted a UW building boom that includes a new Visual Arts Building, a new building for biodiversity and conservation programs and a new Energy Resource Center.

Buchanan also said the university is in good fiscal shape, thanks to strong support from the state Legislature and $43 million in private donations over the last year. Enrollment at the university is at an all-time high.

Buchanan said he would like UW to increase its presence at Wyoming's seven community college campuses. He also said the university would expand online programs.
