UVU is a great university! Their teachers are excellent, they are always willing to work with you to ensure you succeed. The school caters to the student's needs. The campus is my favorite part of the UVU experience. Almost every building is connected, so no having to be cold or get rained/snowed on when you're trying to get to your next class! There are so many amenities (gym, climbing wall, video game area, bowling alley, etc.) and excellent food options. I do wish the athletics were more exciting. Overall, I am happy I've decided to continue my education at UVU.

I absolutely loved UVU right from the start as I set foot on the grounds! Diversity, incredible professors, an awesome system that keeps you updated at all times of all of your assignments in one place, called canvas. There's morning, evening, weekend, online, and off site location courses giving flexibility for most schedules. The grounds are very well laid out and the map is easy to read when needing to get to your classes. The buildings are connected through out the entire main campus, which is great during the hot heat summer weather or ice-y cold winters. I've really come to appreciate that! This place has lots of perks (gym, medical services, game areas, dance rooms, tons of labs for each major, tutoring systems, school cafe, Subway, Costa vida, Jamba Juice, Taco bell, & more. Need a job? UVU always hires! They also have benefits for student employees such as tuition reimbursement. If you try out UVU, you won't be disappointed.
My time at UVU has been a pretty good one! For being the largest university in the state of Utah, the class sizes are actually pretty small. The professors there genuinely care about the students success, and they are always willing to help. Campus is all connected, so there isnt any walking outside in the snow. Student government is always coming up with fun ideas and activities for students to become involved in. I would definitely recommend coming to this university!
