I have attended Utah State University for several years while working toward my bachelor's degree. The beauty and location of this campus is unmatched! It is situated at the base of a gorgeous mountain range, and provides easy access to several canyons where mountain biking, hiking, skiing, rock climbing and several other outdoor activities can be enjoyed. The university is continually making improvements to campus by preserving historic buildings, and constructing beautiful state-of-the-art new facilities. The student life here is great! Almost weekly there are great activities happening on campus. Utah State is renowned for their engineering, education and agricultural programs, and it makes a well-rounded and valuable education affordable and attainable for all.

I love Utah State! When I started applying for schools, I had my heart set elsewhere. USU wasn't at the top of my list, but after a series of events beyond my control, this is where I ended up! I'm almost certain that I'm happier here than I would have been at my "dream" school. I've never been treated badly by anyone on campus, faculty or otherwise, and I feel lucky to be studying with such gifted professors and students for a fraction of the price at other schools. There are so many opportunities within the University and its individual colleges for students to be involved, and I feel like this involvement is a valuable way for me to gain real-world experience.
I love being a student at Utah State University! The schooling and academics are great. The campus is beautiful. The people are so diverse and understanding and fun. There is always something to do here! There are many social events, sporting activities, and clubs to join. There are also opportunities for students to participate in intramural sports, get involved in student government, and be an active part of this school.
