Clothing cottage engineers without borders

Clothing Cottage manager Britt Jonart, right, stands with UW student Shelby Whitman as Jonart explains how UW students participating in the international nonprofit organization Engineers Without Borders helped complete a series of projects in the thrift store near downtown Laramie.

A group of University of Wyoming engineering students completed a series of projects last fall that will make a big difference for the Cottage at St. Matthew’s.

Formerly known as the Clothing Cottage, the Cottage is a thrift store housed in a 140-year-old building adjacent to St. Matthew’s Cathedral in downtown Laramie. Last fall, UW student Shelby Whitman stopped by to see if her Engineers Without Borders club could be of any assistance.
