My experience has been nothing short of amazing! Utah State University is very clear and consistent in communication and getting students the information they need about campus, graduation, finance, and much more. This campus is very clean and the buildings are up to date and functional. The staff is great to work with! They have lots of energy and they are passionate about what they do and passionate about seeing students succeed! Also, at Utah State are many activities and events that keep college life engaging and, let’s face it, less boring! They offer clubs and activities around the quad almost everyday! There is always something to do and there is always something for everyone!

Utah State University has been great to me. I am doing a double major in marketing and international business along with a minor in Spanish, so my schedule has been packed with some tough classes. At Utah State, though many of my classes are of more than 300 students, my professors know my name and have offered me private help out of their personal time outside of the classroom. Thanks to them and the great classmates and friends that I have made here, college has felt like less of a painful process, and more like an exciting endeavor of preparing for the future. Campus is located in the greatest college town in the country. Logan Utah is absolutely beautiful and full of opportunities for young ambitious students. I have loved my time here so far and am confident in great years to come!
I love USU! This school does such a great job of providing opportunities to get involved and meet people. The social life here is amazing, and the overall attitude on campus is so positive and so contagious. If you need something to do you can always find something! Our student section has been ranked various times and no energy can match ours in the Spectrum. Aside from the exceptional social life and events we also have great classes and professors. I am yet to encounter a professor that doesn't seem to genuinely care and root for their students. There are also so many great places to study and so many tutors available to everyone. Walking around campus you really do feel that you are a part of the Aggie Family. I wouldn't want to attend any other university.
