Utah State University Reviews

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Utah State University. The professors are very engaging and willing to help their students. Furthermore, USU’s campus and the city of Logan are both amazing. I am very grateful for the opportunity I have had to go to school here. My only complaint is this: the counseling office at the business school is deplorable. The counselors are unworkable, slow, and useless. Nevertheless, the school and education itself are very good. In addition, I have enjoyed the student body at USU. They are humble, hardworking, and fun. Overall, I give Utah State University a four-star rating. They provide a great education for a reasonable price. Keep up the good work USU!

Everyone at USU is super friendly, and are always willing to help! The professors really just want to help you pass their class so all you have to do is your work. Don't be afraid to talk to them if something comes up or if you have questions! I stayed in the Davis Hall dorms. They were cozy, and stayed warm in the winter and cool during the summer. I could not have loved my roommates more. They have so many opportunities on capus for everyone including clubs, a tutoring center, a writing lab, vending machines with scantrons and pencils in them. Anything that you can possibly think of USU will always be there to help. You just might have to search for the right person to help.
Situated among the beautiful mountains of Cache Valley, Utah State's location is only one of the many factors why it's an incredible school to attend. As a student, you're never in want of things to do from outdoor recreation, athletic competitions, campus parties, housing activities, or city events. In one word, it's just fun! Attending Utah State University makes it fun to go to college and attend classes and be challenged and succeed in your program on top of the student life scene. I love attending Utah State and hope that as I continue my education there that I can continue to be challenged and given opportunities specific to help me succeed.
