I love my school! I’m a diversity student - part Samoan part Caucasian, gay, religious - and the way the university handles its diversity students is phenomnial! The organizations that I’ve benefitted the most from have been CESA (Center of Ethnic Students Association), specifically PISA (Polynesian Islanders Students Association) that is within CESA, and the school’s LGBT Resource Center. These two organizations - CESA and their LGBT Resource Center - have helped adjust to college life as a first year student. I feel right at home and I feel safe.

Moreover, the faculty, at least in my experience, have always been supportive of diversity students and help accommodate them and their needs. I’ve many that talk openly and respectfully concerning lgbt issues, diversity issues, and they always end with their discussions inspiration and motivation to dream big and achieve our goals.

It’d be a dream if I could continue my education there.

I am a current student at the University of Utah. One of the best parts of being at the U, is that most classes are focused on you working with other students. This is not saying that there are a lot of group projects, but that each and every day, you are asked to work with a peer. This reinforces you as a student to not only invest in yourself but to invest in your classmates as well, which has helped a lot of students get better grades as well as enjoy their time at the U.
My experience specifically has been in the aspiration of Athletic Training. The Medical classes are top notch, and the professors make everything easy to absorb if your willing to work. Classes are unique and diverse in that they teach to a wide range of understandings, but don't seem to keep people pigeonholed into a specific type of learning. My life at the University of Utah has been amazing!
Going to the U was an interesting experience. I met a lot of people I love and a lot of close-minded individuals who I wish I hadn't met before as well. As for the diversity of the school, it's not that great BUT the campus is beautiful (although I was quite annoyed with all the construction and the fact that I would be graduating before I got to experience those new buildings). I was apart of the greek system for a little, which I WOULD NOT recommend, it's horrible. Join ASUU or any other student clubs or organizations because those are where you'll meet the right people. The professors were decent, I think we can all say that we have had our fair share of good professors and absolute trash professors. Overall, it was an okay experience, and some of the things I was able to do with the school (not a lot because they give everything to the business majors/program) was fun. The MUSS is life even though most of our athletics suck. Sco Utes though!
