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.
Review Utah State University
I felt very safe at Utah State and really enjoyed how the campus was set up. Everything is within walking distance, even stores off campus. The campus and city bus routes were also very helpful.
The food at Utah State really impressed me! There is such a wide variety all over campus, and it tastes delicious!
As far as professors go, Utah State has some of the best! They are well educated and make themselves more than available to help, support, and advise you.
The only thing I would like to see change would be the party scene. Everyone needs a good study break here and there, but there weren't too many parties to go to.
Utah State is located in the perfect college town! There is a great deal of diversity in people on campus as well as people living in the community. The university is researched based, so the professors actually do research themselves which gives them higher credibility. There are many clubs to join and participate it. Athletic events are very fun as well. Our student fan community called "The HURD" has been rated the best fan section of universities in the nation. Everyone is very friendly and is willing to help you out with almost anything. The atmosphere of the campus is very welcoming. You will feel like you are home when you step onto campus.
