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.

Utah Valley University is an amazing school! The campus atmosphere is great! All the students are accepting and open minded. The school caters to the needs of it's students. UVU offers a ton of fun extra-curricular activities that enrich the college experience. The classes are fulfilling and challenging. The professor's are sometimes the greatest mentors, and other times the bane of your existence. The party life is as dead as Dumbledor. And the housing is atrocious, but it is made up for by the awesome amenities UVU offers. It was easy to find a job after receiving my associates degree so I'd say the return investment payed off nicely. Over all it is an amazing school dedicated to engaging its students.
I love the campus so much. There are endless resources and studying locations on campus! I have not been incredibly impressed with the councilors for students that are in University Studies courses. There is also not enough parking room on campus for all of the students that drive to campus. The last thing I do not enjoy at Utah Valley University is the lack of social life with the school. There are no UVU certified housing options either, so you have to find your own housing and hope it has a great social atmosphere, otherwise you will virtually have no social exposure on campus.
