3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can be older and less convenient than on-campus housing. Plus, the parking sucks.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I think there are lots of options and most of the popular places to eat are not too far away.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Again, not a lot of options for social interactions for on campus students. I'd like to see the school sponsor more activities, expanding my options beyond overrated frat parties.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Parking is overly strictly enforced. I parked in a lot one day near to the end of the patrolling hours, thinking I would be okay, but I still got a ticket.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not find a lot of information about how or when to apply for financial aid. The options I did find were not applicable, and there didn't seem to be any effort on the school's part to inform students of scholarship opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Campus food is okay, but it is all EXPENSIVE. Not ideal for college students who are already spending all their money on tuition, fees, and textbooks.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is okay, but parking is not ideal. I wish there were more parking lots that were more affordable, and a better social atmosphere, dedicated to students living on campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Relatively close to campus, and you get what you pay for.

Off-Campus Dining: Cost is relative to quality, atmosphere is great, great possible date options, and some student discounts.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Unless your doing something outrageously stupid no one is going to care.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I work to much to go out, maybe next year

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was an hit and miss

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Sure it costs a little, but being at school all day and paying so much more to go here. its nothing

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live off campus in an apartment.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I loved going the the U. It was the best experience for me.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I didn't mind the facilities, but they weren't mind blowing.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I don't know many people that belonged to a fraternity or sorority.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: This was the best option for me. I always found a great place for a great price close to public transportation. I just really spent time searching KSL.com daily.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: The dining is pretty great in the downtown area. I just think you have to explore the different options. Don't go with what you know.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: I didn't live on campus so I feel most of these don't apply to me. They rules being enforced on campus were never an issue for me. I guess the rules were being reinforced well if they didn't interfere with my classes or experience.

Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I never attended a party during school. I worked 60 hours a week on top of going to school. There was not time to party.

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The financial aid office was very helpful. I wish I would have heard about the TEACH grant while in school earning a teaching certificate. I met all the qualifications, but I never heard about it. Other than that my they helped me with little to no hassle.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: THe food options are okay. They are getting better. I wish there were more restaurants near campus. I don't always want food court style dining.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lot's of places downtown or right by U street!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Just don't do anything stupid, you'll be fine.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
