I love the university of Utah. I always have a mental list of things I wish were better (air pollution and could use some more diversity), but overall, I must admit that I've had an incredible experience so far. It is a large school in numbers, but considering the fact that a significant percentage of the student population commutes, not many take advantage of the opportunities on campus. The Honors College, Lassonde Institute (for entrepreneurship), Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, and Industry Relations have not disappointed me. Moreover, the U is very well-known for a couple of programs that are the best in the nation. Business, Biomedical Engineering, Video Game Design, Ballet, and Music are just a few examples.
Did I mention that it's also very affordable? AND it is in a very convenient, yet safe and beautiful locations. There is lots to do in Salt Lake City, the mountains, and winter sport resorts. I am very pleased with my choice to attend the University of Utah.
