Utah State University Reviews

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!

Situated among the beautiful mountains of Cache Valley, Utah State's location is only one of the many factors why it's an incredible school to attend. As a student, you're never in want of things to do from outdoor recreation, athletic competitions, campus parties, housing activities, or city events. In one word, it's just fun! Attending Utah State University makes it fun to go to college and attend classes and be challenged and succeed in your program on top of the student life scene. I love attending Utah State and hope that as I continue my education there that I can continue to be challenged and given opportunities specific to help me succeed.
Utah State is not only a beautiful campus in a beautiful area, but it is also a stellar school with professors striving to develop keen young minds. The school encourages heavy involvement across the board in various clubs, intermural activities, and other happenings. I love that Logan and USU stay small enough to get to know many students discover their passions and prepare for the future. There are many quality instructors focusing on helping their students grow and discover more than just lectures. There's nothing like a basketball game in the Spectrum and getting some Aggie Ice Cream. Utah State, Hey! Aggies all the way!
