Southern Utah University Reviews
I love this school! I transferred from a different school and what a difference it's been. The professors really try to get to know you and they know your name by week two. They care very much about your education and you as a person. You can really connect with these professors. They make the lessons fun and interactive. The town is a great college town. There is so much to do outside here. Overall, this is a wonderful school!
I have loved my first year of college! I have become involved in multiple groups, I have learned a lot, and I have felt safe and protected as well. I enjoy the smaller class sizes and I love all of the outdoor opportunities available for me here in Cedar City, UT. This school has something to offer everyone, regardless of interest. There is so much here at SUU, this school is truly rich in opportunity.
My experience/observation with Southern Utah University, was overall great. The town of Cedar City was great. The University is completely embraced by the town around it. The businesses treat the students outstanding, they are very encouraging, and genuinely interested in the students. The class sizes are on the smaller size, which is wonderful, dorms are all within walking distance, and very nice. Everyone is so helpful, friendly, and kind. The campus is beautiful and laid out very well. The only thing I would change with SUU is the non-residence tuition. Make it a little closer to the resident tuition.
