Weber State is an excellent and diverse university. Weber State prides itself in its diverse students and opportunities. Weber State offers a college experience for every student. They offer evening classes, an additional campus and inclusion for all races, backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses and ages. Weber state is an affordable school as well. Not only is tuition significantly cheaper than neighboring four-year universities, Weber state offers many scholarships. The diversity at Weber State adds a level of experience and increase in intelligence that can not be gained elsewhere. Overall my experience with Weber has been positive, I just recommend coming early to get a parking spot for class.

I am in my second semester at Weber State and have really enjoyed going there. They have great programs for pretty much every thing that you can think of. The professors actually care about their students and getting to know them. The class sizes are small so we get more one on one with class mates and professors. I'm going into the Professional Sales major and it is so fun, I would highly recommend it. There are a lot of activities going on around campus all of the time and the sports events bring the whole community together and are very fun. Great school!
I started taking weber state classes in high school and they have helped me substantially! I remember really loving the math tutors they have because they make it about you learning the equations, not just passing the class. What I would really like to see change is having more variety for clubs and extra curricular activities with the school to really feel that school spirit!
