4 College Freshman

Athletics: SUU has it's own rec center. You can go rock climbing, swimming, court sports all for free. They even have an indoor track that is free to run on above the basketball courts. Some places have a minimum cost, like the racket ball courts are a $1 to use and the gym has a fee, but overall it is very accommodating to the average student. The best part is, no time limits. (Well it does close.) But you can play racket ball for hours on just that one dollar. I really liked going there. It's clean, nice environment, and friendly people.

Off-Campus Dining: Cedar City has a lot of fast food chains. What is nice is they have a starving student card that you can buy on campus to get discounts at these places. The options are normal for any city living. A lot of places stay open until 12 am. It's nice for finals week. Plus some gas stations stay open 24/7.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Party are kind of none existent. At least the crowd I hung out with, we didn't "party". There were a couple throughout the year that were heard about by everyone. It was mostly in the fall, around Halloween.

4 College Freshman

Administration: SUU is a dry campus. Drugs and Alcohols were not allowed in the dorms. It was a severe punishment if you were found with any type of the substance. You would get expelled from school. They were lenient with having visitors over during the day but when night came, if they were staying you the resident had to fill out the overnight guest form. And with those, your guest could only stay so long before it was a problem. There were quiet hours in the dorm. We never got "written up" but we had a few warnings administered. The campus itself is fairly safe. There are emergency poles all around the campus and outside the campus living.

I didn't have a car but I know you need to buy a parking pass for almost every parking lot around campus including the on campus living. If you were found without a sticker, you were written a ticket on the spot.

About the attendance, most teachers don't take it. But they do notice if you are absent continually. It's good to go to class anyway, you're paying a lot of money for it.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid at the school is great. To be honest I didn't really deal with it myself. My mother dealt more with the bills. But in the knowledge that I have and when I would go with her, it was easy. They had everything on file. They were super friendly. It was a good and they were always ready to help.

Campus Food: The campus food was alright. The selection was very small. You would see the same food from one day, in another dish the next. They had a board where kids could leave comments and even voice what food they would want to have. For the dining hall, if you had a meal plan, all you had to do was swipe your card when you got there and to keep track of meals, you could just as at the register. The location was convenient. There is lots of seating. I didn't really eat anywhere else. With a purchase of a meal plan you get "T-bird bucks" which you could spend at the T-bird grill or Outtakes. I used them for drinks at the Starbucks they had in Outtakes. Overall the dining hall was average. There was nothing too special about it, just convenient food for when you're hungry.

Campus Housing: I stayed in the Cedar Hall dorms, so it was able to have up to 4 people in the suite. It was spacious for a dorm room. The social atmosphere was great. You could just walk out into the lobby at any time and there were people there who were inviting and nice. The convenience of the location was great. Even during the winter the walk from my room to class was 5 minutes. The cost is a little expensive that what is offered for living off campus. Plus you have to purchase a meal plan if you are living in the Cedar Halls. But it was nice never having to worry about cooking or dishes. The building itself was a very clean environment to live. You had a cleaning staff that came through everyday to vacuum, dust, disinfect, etc. Overall I had a great experience. It was a great place to live my first semester. :)

Overall Experience: My first semester in the fall was great but not taking the class I was interested in. I kept motivating myself and also learning new cultures and countries in Intro to Anthropology, Diversity, and Art. They all had the lessons in the same culture and category to learn and study which was easy for me for midterms and finals. Then Spring semester came realizing I changed my degree to Graphic Design from Computer Science. Class was more easier and fun to draw while learning the key terms they use. Took Intro to Music, Drawing 1, Math 990 to get going on my general, and Intro to Photography. trying to get into upper division so I can finally get into Graphic Design of Illustrator, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver. I already learned how to use them I just need the patients to wait.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Small or medium size class fits me just swell, where I don't feel claustrophobic or shy from others. I registered late to get into my four year degree only taking FIG- of Intro to Anthropology, Intro to Diversity, Multicultural Leadership, and Intro to Art. I was disappointed at first, then the course got easy and little challenging at times to keep me on track. Professors are willing to help students to understand and motivate them to keep pushing ourselves to graduate with the rightful degree we're seeking for.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I never worked while I was being full time student.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I'm still new to campus but I mainly dine on main street that is 20-30 minutes away from my apartment. Dine at Hong Kong Buffet the most of how worth it is.I hear about student discount however, that's only for small restaurants I don't go to.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I go to T-Bird grill, Papa Johns, and mainly the Sushi Bar of how healthy it is and fresh made on the spot.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Small cookout for NCAA championship to game night when the satellite gives out at the president home of our club. Was awesome to see a huge, nice classy home.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of options that are cheaper than the dorms

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of options around town

Party Scene: School-sponsored parties usually are dull

3 College Freshman

Administration: Very strict on drinking in the dorms

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The 'full ride' scholarship isn't really full ride

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Hardly any variety, usually cold

Off-Campus Housing: Because I have never lived in On-Campus housing I may not be really accurate, but I have found the houses or apartments I have lived in are worth the extra drive or walk to campus. The On-Campus housing is hard to get into, and is more for freshmen. There are a lot of houses and apartment complexes that are for college students. I would recommend off-campus living to anyone.

Off-Campus Dining: Cedar City has great off-campus options for food. There are several local diners or hamburger joints where the food, service and prices are excellent. Of course, there are the fast food chain restaurants as well. I honestly feel like there is a good variety.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I have a hard time making friends here in Cedar City. I feel everyone already has their friend group, or they act like I am not good enough to be their friend. I like to focus more on my studies anyhow.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: I have not had any problems with the rules set on campus. I believe they're doing a great job because I have not seen anything bad going on.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: In reference to this semester, It was very easy. I called to the financial aid office to set up an appointment with my advisor to talk with her about scholarships I may qualify for and the young lady on the phone offered me a scholarship right then and there. The semester I was trying to attend before however was a much different story. I met with my advisor and she proceeded to tell me that I did not qualify for scholarships. I have not changed anything about my scores or anything when I was offered the scholarship I needed this semester. It honestly helped me make the decision to wait a whole year before attending again because I do not feel I should pay the full amount for schooling when I qualify just as much as some students who are getting a full ride!

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: The times I have ate on campus, I have not been unsatisfied. I do prefer to eat off campus when I have the chance because there is a lot more options and they are not that far down the road. The dinning hall has several options and variety of food items, social environment and great location in the center of campus.
