Weber State University Reviews
I love attending Weber State! It has an amazingly friendly environment and the programs and people are great! The campus isn't huge so getting from class to class isn't as hard as it can be in other bigger campuses, yet still providing the same level of opportunity of learning. Also, the professors are very friendly and many times flexible. In addition, class sizes are small most of the times, and the professors are very open for office hours. The advantage that tutoring has is also great, that way I always get the help I need. Athletics and clubs are awesome, but the only thing I would say is that I wish there was more public events in which you can go out and hang out with friends. Other than that, Weber State is the way to go!
As a freshman it is hard to give a full rating of a school I'm going to be at for 4 years, however, after a full semester I have learned enough to know how amazing Weber State is! You feel welcomed from your very first day and there is no sense of "cliques" between classes (i.e. freshman and junior). All of the students are there to learn and get their degree, not mess around. All of the teachers are there to teach the students and help them not further their research. The professors are amazing and are always willing to help you. The staff is always very helpful as well. The curriculum is interesting and no-nonsense. The events are fun and the Weber State Spirit is high! Go Wildcats!
Online classes through Weber State University are of high quality. Oftentimes, online classes are thought to be less informative than the face-to-face experience, but Weber’s online classes offer a very hands-on approach. The quality of the curriculum is not decreased behind the screen. In recent events of the COVID-19 pandemic, Weber State has handled the challenge quite well, but most admirably, the transition of classes from the physical to the virtual format. Although difficult, classes were carried out through the remainder of the year in such a way that the material was distributed and received by each student, still allowing them to learn and reach academic success. Weber State University is most definitely a great choice to achieve a fulfilling online experience.
