This is a great school to go to! They have amazing professors that care about you as a student. They have a wide variety of classes and learning opportunities. There is such a diverse group of student body here, such as culture, race, and backgrounds. Students actually talk to each other and become fast friends, and create study groups to support and encourage others to learn. There are amazing resources here, that equip students with the needed materials to succeed! And there are always different activities going on throughout the week.
Review Utah Valley University
The campus at Utah Valley University is awesome! they're all about helping the students out with all sorts of things. With all of the buildings being connected, you never have to trek through the crazy Utah weather if you don't want to. They have an amazing gym and great equipment to help benifit students' health. And oppurtunities daily for free things and food. It's pretty neat. One thing I have struggled with this past year is mainly just the Finacial Aid. With the school growing so rapidly, I think the finance people are having a hard time keeping up, it's been taking a long time to actually recieve the finacial aid money and has caused more stress in my life that is unecessary alongside all the rest of my homework and other collegey things.
Having a university so close to Provo's BYU is sure to have lots of competition. Even so, Utah Valley is a fantastic university to attend. Lots of learning opportunities are presented. Even though it has the most students out of all colleges in the state of Utah, most of my classes have only about twenty to thirty students. This is great because the teachers are approachable and I fell like they actually care. The social life is pretty awesome too! there are several campus events on a weekly basis to get students involved.
