5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Southern Utah University is one of the best schools I have visited, and because of this I chose to attend there. Not only do I feel that I am among some of the most steadfast, and smart students, but my professors have all been better than I could have even imagined. The class sizes are one of the main reasons I decided to enroll, with them being smaller (my largest class was 42 students) you are able to connect more with your professor and get to know everyone in your classes. School work might not be one of my more favorite things, but by being enrolled at SUU, my professors helped me want to learn, and challenged me in a positive way more than I thought they would! But of course not only are the classes awesome, but the student life in Cedar is wonderful! I got to attend some amazing and fun events with my friends that I am excited for this upcoming year! I would strongly suggest looking into this school, and if its a match for you and you apply, you wont regret it. I know I didn't!

Overall Experience: This fall will be my first semester at Southern Utah University. While I have not spent a large amount of time at my university yet, from what I have seen and experienced so far I believe that It will be amazing. This school has such a large array of students from different places and backgrounds, it will be interesting to see who I meet and become friends with. Also, Southern Utah University has programs designed specifically for helping their graduates to find jobs after they graduate. It is awesome to know that they aren't just churning out their students for profit; they actually care about us and want to see us succeed. I believe that those programs (specifically the EDGE program) is a big reason why SUU is unique. Also, the amount of different activities and the outdoor recreation the SUU offers is really spectacular. They have sports events, parties, dances, and many other activities that help students feel more at home and to make new friends. As for the outdoor recreation, there is snowboarding, tubing, hiking, backpacking, canyoneering, caving, as well as their close proximity to Quail and Sand Hallow lakes. If I could choose any school, it would definitely be this one. In my mind, they have everything that I could ever need or want in a college.

Overall Experience: I love the school! There are so many things to be involved in.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of houses and apartment buildings close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not a big party person. I like to just hang out with my friends.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: SUU is in the middle of town, so there are many places near campus to eat. There are more expensive, nicer places to eat and there are quite a few fast food places.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Parking is one of the bigger subjects at SUU. The campus police don't want people parking where they shouldn't be.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Since I will be a college freshmen, I haven't eaten food on campus very often. But when I went to a leadership conference there, we had our meals in the dining hall, and there were many choices and selections.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was sent many emails updating my on the financial aid process.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I will not be living in Campus Housing, but I have heard nothing but great things about it.

Scholarships: It was hard trying to figure out where I was going to get the money that my scholarships didn't cover, but I figured it out.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are some AMAZING local restaurants that have good food and a great atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I really don't have much to say, I know why the rules are there and they are enforced.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Dining Hall offers many options, but it is hit and miss. Sometimes the food is fantastic but sometimes a salad and a PBJ is all that I can tolerate.

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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.
