University of Utah Reviews

40 reviews
The University of Utah has a good graduate program for a variety of students. Its greatest strengths are the quality of professors, academic opportunities, and surrounding environment. As a graduate student in the school of music, there is a great music scene with many of opportunities in the city, from the Utah Symphony to the Mormon Tabernacle. Many say that the Mormon presence dominates SLC, but I honestly have not noticed any major influence that affects my overall experience. While diverse, the program is perhaps more on the moderate/traditional side compared to programs in other nearby states. However, there are many opportunities for travel and funding to pursue academic endeavors (conferences, workshops, etc.). Overall, I have greatly enjoyed my time here (and especially being surrounded in the beautiful Utah Valley)!

I really like that the teachers are done to earth and willing to help the students out any way they can (at least all the teachers that I've had). I enjoy that the classes are fairly small and that expectations are clear from day one which really helps you know how the class will be structured and what you will need to do in order to succeed. They also have lots of great resources for students and it's pretty easy to find people that you can be friends which is also really nice to have! The campus is beautiful and there is always plenty to do around campus. I've meet some really great people, and the campus is also really accessible for commuting students which is also really helpful.
The University of Utah is a great school, I have been so impressed with the teacher's and experiences I have had here and feel so much more prepared for my career because of my education. The teachers have great professional experience and are more than willing to help out students who need help. The school is also really responsive to help students find jobs and make sure they have the resources they need to be successful. I highly recommend this school to everyone!
