If you’re looking for the best academic institution in the world, the U of U will definitely catch you by surprise. The U has plenty of great teachers, and simply because of its sheer size, there’s a wide variety to choose from. It’s wise to ask around to get the scoop on which teachers are the best, but you can also look up student course evaluations of teachers at the campus information Web site. There are world-class professors here with national awards and honors. Plus, the students are great and helpful, too. For the money, the U of U cannot be beat!
Some academic departments, such as ballet and theater, are consistently ranked high. The University's health science programs are successful and very well funded, earning the U accreditation as a Research I university. The U’s business school is never as highly rated as its rival, BYU’s business school, but it has produced more millionaires than BYU has. The U is constantly growing and improving, as it is in the process of building a state-of-the-art business center and a brand-new building for microbiology. The U is at the vanguard for technology and innovation.
