This school is amazing! The assistance you get from staff (both professors and otherwise) extends way beyond the first weeks of school. Everyone is so willing to help and they want you to succeed! UVU is so judgement-free and welcoming of everyone under the sun. Class sizes are usually small (20-50) for most classes. The every area of campus can be conveniently accessed without going outside which is great during very wet or very cold days. Campus life is amazing and there is always something fun going on like clubs to join, guest speakers, movie nights, dances, etc. Overall, I have nothing bad to say about Utah Valley University. Truly exceeded my very high expectations!

Utah Valley University (UVU) has an exemplary teaching environment, filled with warmth and beauty. There are many tutoring services offered for the majority of subjects. The entire campus is connected, meaning one can remain indoors and travel to every classroom or area. There are over one hundred fifty clubs available. This means that you can do more of what you love! Additionally, Intramurals and recreational sports clubs are present on the UVU campus. Recreational sports include: Esports, cycling, and bass fishing in addition to men’s and women’s hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and rugby. Not to mention their splendiferous amenities, including a well equipped Student Life and Wellness Center.
I just recently began my experience with Utah Valley University. After a long and thoughtful process, I felt Utah Valley would be the best fit for me and my situation. So far, I love the atmosphere! I love the environment and the safety I feel while walking around campus. The local area (in Orem, Utah) is a great city for college students with lots of opportunities to be involved and to start a successful path for your future. The school offers a variety of events and programs to keep the students involved. All of the activities sponsored by Utah Valley are for the benefit of the students and ensuring everyone receives the full "college experience". Not to mention, Utah Valley is a beautiful campus. The view from the windows overlooks the Wasatch mountains and Utah lake. The campus grounds are kept clean and very well maintained. Utah Valley is an amazing school. My experience has been unforgettable and I look forward to the coming years while attending this university!
