5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Neumont is great school full of hardworking students, the workload is high but i have we all have a great time. student housing is located near campus and there is always someone there to help you with anything you need. most registration documents are done completely electonicaly and sent through email, no hassle with paperwork

Campus Resources: We don't have any gym or library but we have a ton of student staff and normal staff on hand for tutoring and help almost any hour of the day. We get a free membership to a gym down the street if we live in the tower and their is a public library not too far from here, maybe about 10 ish minutes.

Student Body: The acceptance rate at Neumont is very high, so initially we get a lot of lazy and immature students. However, the intensity of the program quickly reduces the student body to a select group of hard-working, focused, intelligent, and enjoyable group. With that said, my school is still comprised almost entirely of the social group known as "geek".

Career Services: The post-grad service are the biggest thing that makes Neumont so worth the money. In the last few years of graduation, all of the students have had real jobs within six months. On average, the pay is about $62,000 per year, around what somebody who's been in industry for a few years would make. The majority of students have multiple job offers before they even graduate. This is due to the awesome career services. Career services keeps in touch with many companies to stay up to date on what skills they would like in computer science graduates and ensure that we learn those skills throughout our time at school. We also have three "Enterprise Projects", which are essentially unpaid internships required to graduate.

Campus Resources: The campus is a single 11-story building. Compared to most universities, we have limited resources. Specifically, there are no athletic centers, the library is irrelevant, and there are a limited number of things to do on campus. We have "The Commons" which is a large open area on the first floor where students can hang out and play pool. We also have a room called "The Bunker" where students can relax, play Foosball, video games, or something on the student-made arcade machine. However, students at my school don't really have time for any of that anyway. Neumont provides a lot of online resources including software and subscriptions to helpful websites like lynda.com and pluralsight.com. Students are also given subscriptions to the nearby gym if they live in student housing.

Tuition & Financial Aid: First off, in the last eight years the tuition has only been raised once, and that was by $300. There also aren't any unexplained or exorbitant fees. As a for-profit institution, they are exceptionally honest and straightforward. They also do their best to work with students. Also, they will match any outside scholarship for up to $5,000.

Academic Flexibility: The faculty are easy and pleasant to work with, however, due to the nature of the expedited program and the small student body (resulting in only one or one of a specific class at a time) my schedule revolves around class times.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is brutal, 7k for 10 weeks but it is defintely worth it once you graduate and are making on average 63k a year.

Academic Experience: As a computer science major I'm required to complete a lot of homework and a lot of my knowledge has come from outside sources. The workload is huge but there is a great payoff at the end. I often feel not smart enough to be here as there are some insanely smart students. We start programming day one and I think that's a very unique aspect of my school

Academic Experience: They don't offer classes that you need to take too often. Basically if you don't pass it the first time it's a headache to take it the second time as sometimes you have to wait a quarter or two to be able to take it again. Some of the teacher are really rude but most of them are really helpful and all of them want to see you succeed.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Not very many females, mostly a lot of geeky kids who don't shower some are obnoxiously smart, some are nice and friendly.

Academic Flexibility: Classes are only offered every once in a while so if you fail something you have to wait a quarter or two until you are able ot take it again.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Academic Experience: Things are fast but they are efficient and their system is the best that I've seen for what they guarantee.

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!

4 College Sophomore

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.

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.
