I have enjoyed my time at the University of Utah. The U is filled with unique, intelligent and inspiring faculty and students. Every moment spent here is worthwhile and every student is supported no matter where their educational goal is taking them! The University of Utah is one giant family! There are numerous activities each month and too many student groups to count! The University of Utah is the best place to obtain your degree!

The professors at The U are awesome! They have always fostered individuality, and are great about working with you if life gets in the way of school for a time. There hasn't been one professor that I felt scared of approaching if I have a problem.

I also love the public transit available to all students (included in student fees) that gets you around campus effectively. Parking can be difficult to find and is expensive for a poor college student, so I appreciate that there's a train that takes me to various points on campus. The train routes are effectively supplemented by shuttles/bus routes, as well.

The campus is beautiful, and there are several places to study and great resources available to all students. Highly recommended.
So far i have had a very positive experience with the University of Utah. I have made many new friends and connected with people i wouldn't have in high school. My University offers a lot of leadership positions and ways to get involved. If you put effort into your experience here it will be very worth your while. My professors could provide a little one on one time, but I do see that they try their best! I would like to see better lighting on campus to make it feel safer for those late study nights.
