3 College Junior

Student Body: The school has a lot of students who are fresh out of high school and the female ratio is really low. Mostly I find people who are interested in gaming and maybe only half who make it a good habit to get outdoors and do other things. The student body is easy to stick with people who started at the same time they did but I really can't speak for student housing since I life off campus and have my own place. I get a general feeling around school that there is a lot of respect for each other but just as anywhere, you get the few who don't get along. Did I mention, they love video games?

Academic Experience: This school makes it hard for you to simply give up. Even though its tough, the faculty works hard to keep you involved. The school tries to challenge you and teach you not only course material but how to look at problems in your work from different angles. Registration in most cases is automatic because you have a dedicated person working with you to make sure your degree plan is on track and up to date if something needs to get moved around. I felt the honest effort of all my teachers to know and understand the students. It was a great help when the teacher was able to recognize topics students struggled on and spend more time on those topics and less time on easy topics. I have found out that those students who struggle are those who believe it is still high school and do not grow new habbits of learning or those who do not put school anywhere in their top ten list of things to do throughout the week.

Academic Experience: The school is expensive and you spend money getting a specific computer through their programs. This is what keeps me from giving an A+. However, the school is only two and half years long and compared to a similar four year degree somewhere else you come out on top financially. This school is not easy and the workload can pile up quickly if you are not prioritizing. I was trained as a Nuclear Power Operator in the Navy and this school shares similarities in the learning process that I feel make this a top notch school. The school is small overall because they only teach computer science related material and next year will be moving to downtown Salt Lake City. If you want a career in computer science this has to be the place. Internships? This school makes those seem outdated. As part of the programs at Neumont you work with real companies on real life projects where you get to see your creation be used in the real world. They call these Enterprise Projects and you work on them your last three quarters (10 quarters total). Talk about networking and real life experience while still in school. It’s part of the education and to me; the biggest asset to what will get my career going quickly.

Student Body: There are couple 30+ students, majority of students are around 18-23 years old. We have small female populations, because it seems like females have less intentions to study in technology field.

Student Body: Diverse group of like minded individuals. There's always chill people to hang out with, get help on homework, party hearty with, etc

Of course there's also the nerdy social shut offs.

Career Services: Working With Indristry – the last three quarters are focused on real world development from real world industry.

Campus Resources: Busy Busy Busy/Fun Fun Fun – Neumont University has a challenging program that will keep you on your toes. The first two quarters are fairly easy, but once your third quarter hits, you're out of the frying pan and into the fire. Exercises/projects/assignments due almost every day, and the sheer feel of accomplishment at the end of the week when everything is completed and turned in.
Although the workload gets heavy, the student life doesn't suffer terribly much. If you stay on top of your work, there is plenty of time to socialize and have a good time. Weekends are full of opportunities to get away from the computer, you just have to find the right people. Neumont students have a code that we live by, "Grades before Games", meaning that if you want to go hang out and do something epic on the weekends, you have to have your work finished. We pay a lot of money for this school, and failing classes is detrimental to not only your degree, but also your wallet.
The key to surviving Neumont is to work all week long so to get all your work done, so that on the weekends, you can play as hard as you want to without worrying about any assignments. Stress sucks.

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.
