When I went to the University of Utah I hardly knew anybody, but through orientation I became connected with many of my friends which have been closer to me than my high school friends. This school promotes diversity for individuals in all walks of life, which has greatly attributed to my improved self-esteem. Professors are always passionate about the subject which they teach and are sensitive to your personal life. They truly care about their students, despite how big the class may be. The Campus is located on the downtown foothills of the Salt Lake mountains, aesthetically overlooking the city. A student has access to free commute on the UTA Frontrunner, bus, and Trax systems, as well as the Student Life Center gym. This school's student body is highly involved with volunteer, travel abroad, and work opportunities. It's never a dull moment in the student section: the PAC 12-league sports at the U are out of this world! I truly recommend this school for both prestige and experience!

This is my first semester at the University of Utah! So far I am loving the diversity of my courses as there are so many options to choose from. Additionally, I am really enjoying the culture of the school because there seems to be a lot of school spirit and opportunity for participation. If I could change one thing about the University it would be the affordability. Additionally, I feel the scholarship office could offer better guidance to the students who need to find scholarship opportunities.
University of Utah is the best college that I could ask for, especially going into my bachelor's degree. They have so many opportunities for any major you declare! I am a history major and there are hundreds of classes in which I am able to choose from. Here at the University of Utah professors are very engaging with their students, which I view as very important. In fact, any staff I have come in contact with at U of U have been very proficient. With other large colleges such as UVU, staff seem to be overburdened due to the large quantity of students and it is a pain to get anything resolved. Not at the University of Utah! I have always had every problem resolved in a timely and professional manner; weather I go in person or call, I always have had things straightened out by the end of the meeting/phone call. I would definitely refer others to the University of Utah!
