The best part of Utah Valley University is it’s campus! It is beautiful and very well maintained! All of the buildings are connected so you never have to worry about the weather conditions! There are so many fantastic amenities for students! The teachers are average but they really do help you get the most out of their classes and will help you get a good grade if you’re struggling! They really do care about your education! The financial aspect is great if you are a in-state student, though it is a bit of a struggle if you’re from out of state like I was. The financial aid has also always been a struggle and has caused lots of added stress, fortunately it also got figured out.
