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.
Review Utah State University
Utah State University is a great school to attend. It offers a small town vibe and the campus is absolutely stunning. The perks of USU include very educational classes, many sporting events, and highly entertaining musical performances. There are many more diverse clubs and organizations for everybody to enjoy. There is not much that I would change about the wonderful experiences available at this school. I bleed Aggie blue! Plus, what other campus has the wonderful fresh Aggie Ice-cream? USU is the best decision I ever made.
I love USU! It has many great academic programs and colleges. So far I have not had an unreasonable professor or instructor that isn't willing to go the extra mile to help the students in their classrooms. There are so many classes to choose from and in varying difficulties. The campus is not small, but it isn't enormous either, making it easy to walk from class to class, and if you don't want to walk from your residence hall or another part of Logan, then you can easily jump on a free bus. The transit services are very convenient. Additionally, there are sooo many clubs and activities to participate in, it is easy to find something to do if you are bored. And if you can't find a club that you are interested in, the University makes it easy to start your own and publicize it.
