University of Utah Reviews
I am getting close to finishing my senior year and graduating from the business school at the University of Utah. My circumstances here have been a bit different from the traditional college student. I commuted all four years of college, never living on or near the campus itself. But that didn't make it too difficult to immerse myself in the college scene. There are plenty of opportunities in terms of putting yourself out there and getting to know where you really fit in. Whether that be from the numerous amounts of clubs and greek life options to chose from, or the student government departments to join, there is something for everyone!
I love the diversity of classes offered! I can always find a class I need and the University of Utah even offers classes I never dreamed would be important enough for the school to care about. When it comes to education, it seems that no topic is irrelevant, and staff at the University of Utah will do all that they can to help you achieve your dreams. Something I wish was more prevalent is the presence of school spirit and student unity. When I was at Utah Valley University, I felt that the students were "all in it together" and there were constantly student life activities going on that were free and easy to get to. That spirit is not nearly as present at the University of Utah. In a nutshell, the University of Utah is a great school for academic purposes and it a fantastic set up for grad school or other professional education beyond and undergrad degree, but it is not necessarily the best university for student life.
University of Utah sits in an awesome area of Salt Lake City with access to great shopping and restaurants downtown. It is very historic yet provides a modern social and party scene. The campus has an excellent orientation program and wonderful student services. The classes are challenging but fun. And there is access to excellent healthcare and dentistry at their top rated facilities. Best school in the Utah, maybe even in the Intermountain West!
