Off-Campus Dining: Some of the best are fairly well hidden and you have to know they are there, but they are amazing!

Athletics: Nearly everyone supports our teams and we have some of the best.

Campus Strictness: It is a big school so some things get missed, but over all very good!

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but I have friends that do and they love it.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The only reason why I do not give it the highest rating is because it is such a big campus and it is difficult to watch all of the time.

College Junior

Scholarships: Until very recently I already had a scholarship and when that ran out I had my job to help pay and am now getting ready to apply for aid, but missed most of the deadlines because I was not aware of them.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Good enough choices available, convenient areas, and fair enough prices.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of houses around and lots of options. Very close to school so its very convenient. the prices are a little pricey but its at a reasonable cost.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: For the most part, everyone seems pretty nice and open. However it depends on who you run into. Most people are fine talking to you but some can come off a little cold.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I enjoy the variety of race, religion, and things in general. You learn something new from everyone you meet and gain a new perspective to things in life.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: For the most part, there are lots of on campus activities to keep you busy. Safety is very well, if anything happens, the school notifies everyone. There are not many shopping places besides the bookstore but its not a big deal.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Lots of students are involved and seems like everyone gets along with each other fine. They always have activities for everyone

3 College Junior

Academics: Good enough variety of classes to choose from, professors teaching skills are good enough. Theres enough studying area. Things are straight forward for the most part.

4 College Junior

Academics: The school offers lots of good scholarships, interns and outside resources for you to prepare in the real world. The programs are very organized and at a fair enough workload.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some buildings could be worked on and updated. The campus is very neat and clean and always well kept landscapes. Even if its crowded with people, its still very comfortable without feeling like your personal space is being invaded. The buildings are at a decent walking distance but that really all depends on where you schedule your classes.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Lots of fun! Lots of people and activities. Fair enough music choice for dancing and fun things they offer. Although, it is something you would get sick of very quickly throughout the night.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Its a lot better than dining offered on campus. Super close by and its at a reasonable price. It has variety of the types of food to different ways they make them.

The University of Utah is a campus of contrasts. On the one hand, it’s cold, bureaucratic, and impersonal, but on the other hand, because it’s so large, there's no shortage of opportunities in which to distinguish yourself, groups to join, or people to meet. On the one hand, it’s a bleak commuter campus, but on the other hand, you have arguably the finest on-campus housing in the United States. You have the LDS Institute of Religion on the South Side of campus and Greek Row on the North Side of campus. You have a magnificent light rail system to get to school, and you have a harsh, brutal parking system if you drive.

The trick to having a rich experience at the U is to get involved. If you live off campus and only come to school to “go to school,” then your good old college days will be very bland, indeed. There is no campus community; there simply isn’t. But there are dozens and dozens of sub-communities on campus to find and become a part of. People who enjoy the U are those who take ownership of their education and college experience. Those who complain about it are generally those who just sit back, waiting for someone else to make college great for them. There is a very clear divide between Mormon and non-Mormon students. This can be difficult to overcome but easier for people from out of state. One of the reasons there’s less of a community feel on campus is the “us versus them” attitude that some students and faculty take, which is really too bad.
