The dinosaurs on display are:

bulletCamptosaurus near the bookstore which was originally found in the fossil dinosaur beds at Como Bluff, east of Rawlins Wyoming in 1879.

bulletThe giant Plesiosaur which lines the hall way leading to Mitchell's Dining Hall.

bulletStegosaurus is one of the first dinosaurs found in Wyoming in 1878 at Como Bluff east of Rawlins.

bulletTriceratops was discovered in eastern Wyoming near Lance Creek in 1889.

All the dinosaur displays are free and open to the public whenever the college is open. Tours can be arranged by checking out the Campus Tours page to the left.
