3 College Senior

Facilities: There is not a whole lot around as it is just one building downtown.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: For the most part unless you want to spend longer than 10 quarters here you move your life around the schedule.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Some of them don't shower and can be really stupid, but by the time you get to the last half those people have dropped out.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school will get me started but has cost a lot of money.

5 College Senior

Career Services: One of the more comprehensive career services as you seem them in the building everyday and during your last 2 quarters you are constantly talking with them.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: For a small school it is good, but for as much as they charge they should do a bit more.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Well we have a mac lab and then the laptops we bought at the beginning but sometimes the network just decides to crap out. Also if you are not running Windows 7 you are going to have issues staying connected.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: You learn lots in just a day.

Campus Resources: Everything involving technology is beyond excellent at this University! Everything is up to date and exactly how you need it to be to be efficient. You can't be working on older technology so everything is at its newest point. The laptops that are given to you are also top of the line and are very expendable for anything you want to do with them.

Campus Resources: it is a private University and very small so I don't expect too much. I do wish that they had sports teams and other things that other Universities have, but I guess they have something I care about more. That would be the gaming portion of things!

Campus Resources: It is very open and free, it does not feel like a traditional University. It is in the center of downtown so everything Utah has to offer can be available to you very quickly. They are very friendly and accurate with everything that you learn. Not only that the students and the teachers and faculty are more than just colleagues, they are friends and beyond acquaintances.

Academic Experience: Things are fast and efficient, they are difficult but that's what Neumont does. They work the fastest possible to get you to graduate as soon as possible.

You have your own personal finance team, your own tutors and the professors will make time to help you out when you need it. It is free and open and it does not feel like a University at all!
Everything and everyone is there for you, everyone is in it together to help you get through your education!

Tuition & Financial Aid: I was very pleased with the way everything was presented by the financial aid office. Not only was all information was straightforward and upfront, but any time there were additional funds available or another way to benefit me, my financial aid officer called me personally and gave me all of the information and answered all of my questions.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I give it a B because it costs a lot, but of my 30k yearly tuition they gave me a 5k need based scholarship, that with fafsa need based i got 10k off my loan.
financial aid department works hard with you. The education is WORTH IT. If you make it through that is. a lot of the most recent grads have been earning 70-100k out of school, neumont does not post that because... well i don't know but as the school gains more renown in the industry the students gets better jobs because everyone knows that neumont pumps out golden workers lol.

Academic Flexibility: The student body is not very diverse because its a very specific field of study. needless to say there is no nightlife associated with the school aside from lan parties and playing games all night (when there is time, which is not often because of the work load). the student advocates and faculty are easily the best i've ever seen in my life, you get people here who really care about you and your future. the job opportunities from going to this school and enormous because it is a very prestigious school in the industry since it is all project based and we get to work hand and hand with industry leaders through a series of enterprise projects where we are basically interns for the top companies and for smaller companies. overall this school is amazing but it is not for the undedicated. this school comes with a nice big tuition of 30k per academic year but you get your degree in only 2.5 years because it is an advanced learning degree.

Campus Resources: Neumont University is a computer-degree-only school: they have degrees for Computer Science, Web Development, Game Design, and other various computer-related degrees. I've been going to this school for two quarters now and the school is a computer heaven: internet is fast, printing is sound, networks are always up and working, and you're required to get a school- provided computer. The entire school is a computer lab.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is no school gym only the ones provided at the apartments we live in. The library only has technology related books so you'll have no luck trying to find Catcher in the Rye. Campus activities happen pretty often and include ice skating, camping, hot spring visits, downtown visits, BBQ's, movie nights, etc.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Network Is Very Good – The computer network is slow at the moment but they're working on rededicating their servers, currently we're switching our class management system. If you're having network problems you can send in the assignment to your professor. Most assignments are due at 11:59 p.m. It really depends on how many students are currently attending the school and how many students are on the network.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Everything You Need to Know – The campus is great. It's a small two floor business building, and you have as much personal communication with your professor's as you need. The tutor's know exactly what they're talking about at all times, and don't just give you answers, they help guide you to the information you need to know. The apartments we live at are wonderful, and have great views of the mountains. Full living room and kitchen, 1 master bedroom and 1 regular room, which you will share with three other people. Also 1 master and regular bathroom. If you're bored on the weekends there's always something to do. Depending on your classes the sizes run from 15-30.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Very hands on and well taught by people who used to be top notch in their field.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: A lot of nice people that just want to help you out with your next programming problem. If your having trouble, just head to the lounge and ask if you can get some help and you'll have more than a few willing people.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Best college around in my eyes, I'm a programming major and wish to get into the game design area of the career and this college show me how to do just that.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There is never a dull moment in my school. We always have something planned that is always fun. My school does not have a lot of athletic centers, but we have a student center and a library.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: My school consists of not only students that are just coming from high school but also some parents. They have to switch between being parents and students. Some of them are here because of the economy while other are here to get a job when they graduate.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Two things can be said about Neumont University: As a computer science school, it’s bound to have a stellar network that rarely goes down, and you'll probably find someone with whom to play World of Warcraft. After all, these students are designing games and software, so technology is very much a part of their lives. Plus, if anything were to go wrong with the network, there are tons of students around with the ability to fix the problem. These often self-proclaimed "nerds" make the University an especially conducive school for video gaming, helping each other with related homework, and generally just chilling out. However, occasionally, you will get the social shut-offs who are unreachable. Most of these students will be guys—only because the Neumont population is majorly made up of dudes—nearly 95 percent. Good news for the ladies searching for potential mates but bad news for the men-folk. Plus, another double-edged sword is the fact that it’s a teeny, tiny school with fewer than 300 students, so you are bound to know everyone on campus.

While the cost of the school is pricey, students find it worth the loans and grants, being that job placement is extremely high, with nearly all graduates finding work shortly after their final final exam. In fact, the last three quarters focus on real-world development. Plus, students find the education they receive to be especially beneficial, being that it’s hands-on, with professors who actually have industry experience. One of the only drawbacks is that your schedule can lack some flexibility, being so compressed that your classes are pretty much chosen for you. One thing that isn’t compressed is the University’s location in South Jordan, Utah. Despite being nestled in the Salt Lake Valley, South Jordan has a relatively flat openness to it, which brings peace to students amidst strenuous studying.
