Utah State University is an excellent school, with many opportunities! The student life is one which is exciting; there is never a need to be bored due to the various activities on campus. Students are very involved in the sports games which creates an energetic society. Student academic life is focused because students know that is the number one priority. Professors are willing to work with the students and help on the educational pursuits. Housing is easy to find because there is plenty! There is a canyon right next to campus which is used as a refuge for the students as they need a break from the busy school life. The city of Logan is growing, providing more job opportunities for students.

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!
Utah State University is an excellent school. Of course, academically it is very satisfactory. The campus is beautiful and safe. It is a diverse school with many students from different states and countries. There are several clubs to join to be involved, and the student body is honest and caring. I love being a student here at Utah State, because I feel I fit in no matter what. People are accepting and friendly here and it is a very positive place to be. I love being a student at Utah State University!
