I LOVE UTAH VALLEY UNIVERSITY. When first started college, I chose to attend UVU mostly because I didn't want to attend my other options, but now I can't imagine myself going to school anywhere else! I feel as though UVU is the perfect fit for me. I love the diversity among the students and the opportunity to learn from other students who have very different opinions and backgrounds than I do. I also love how UVU is entirely focused on bettering the students and preparing us to have a successful future. Everyone is welcome at UVU because everyone deserves to be successful and happy. I could not be happier with my school!

My online learning experience at UVU has been pretty great so far! Professors have been generally clear about the requirements of their courses and have been very understanding and supportive when I have contacted them about course questions.

It was easy to keep what assignments were due and what I need to do online- but you have to be motivated and on top of things if you really want to succeed!Paying attention to the tiniest of details on assignment requirements helped me complete my assignments with accuracy, and helped me work for a great score in my classes. I also was easily able to network with my classmates for support or study help, and it was a great experience.
Utah Valley is amazing! There are around 40,000 students going there (the most in Utah), but the student to teacher ratio is one of the lowest. The campus is beautiful and very clean. There are many apartments close by at an affordable price. The study labs are so helpful and they are also free! They have so many programs to choose from and they all are top of the class. Utah Valley is very involved with their students and there are so many fun things to participate in, as well as fun things to do on campus. It seems like there are always t-shirts or free food being handed out somewhere. I believe that UVU can help you graduate and have an amazing college experience.
