4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The facilities at the University of Utah are definitely world-class. I have enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the city that houses the university.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Utah has so many options to offer

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Utah has always been very helpful in answering my questions and ensuring that I understand the whole college process. If it weren't for them openly offering information, I would have been a lot more lost as I started college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the University of Utah. Overall, the classes and professors are good. The athletic programs are great. The campus has a good feel. The only thing I don't like is the commuter aspect. Many students live at home and commute to school, so there isn't as much of a "college life", "campus" feeling. But other than that, it's great!

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel like I'm surrounded by students that don't care that much about academics. Student fees are through the roof and are used to subsidize things I don't care about. I'm worried about the quality of job I'll get coming out of this program.

Overall Experience: I enjoy school and I enjoy my major.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: First of all, academically speaking, it's HARD!.. In other words, its a great challenge to really test myself. My first few weeks in college at the University of Utah already had my life stressful and messy as it was, and I'm not going to lie, it kind of sucked, but at the same time, it was exciting. Having to perform physically, mentally and emotionally on edge and on my toes taught me a great lesson for my own personal discovery and self development. I quickly saw my weaknesses and I had no other choice but to prioritize things more efficiently, and overtime, I did get the hang of it and found balance.

Of course, the cause of this wasn't just classes being hard. Matter of fact, I enjoyed being in class, learning, writing a ton of notes and the environment with the people was great. Other things played at hand to making things more difficult, and that is, OPPORTUNITIES... I admit it, there are an expansive amount of opportunities when you become a student, and as a student, you're bound to run into lots of them that are tempting to be a part of. Of course, I wanted to get involved in student organizations, attending events and doing some fun services, results me having to put in LOTS of time and effort into... In the end, was it worth it? OH YEAH! I learned a lot.

I have to say, out of all the involvement that I participated in, the brand new Entrepreneur Certificate program was my favorite experience. 2014-15 was it's first year and our class was honored enough to help be apart of its start up and overall success (success meaning, experiencing entrepreneurship on a global scale by going abroad to a third world country).. Coming into college I never would have expected to visit Costa Rica and do humanitarian projects there for spring break - That's the type of program that I was apart of, and yes, I learned A LOT!

Other than opportunity and involvement, the campus itself is gorgeous. It's like a whole city in itself.

This is why I love the University of Utah!

Overall Experience: I haven't started attending the University of Utah yet, but I will be starting in one month :) All I know is as soon as I stepped onto campus I fell in love with the school. From the atmosphere, to the people, even to the school spirit...I'm excited to change the world at the University of Utah!

Overall Experience: It was okay. I have been going to the University of Utah all of my life for health appointments and I've had family members go there, so I already knew what to expect.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I loved the location that I was in. It was in a good, safe part of town, my apartment was reasonably priced (although many are quite expensive), and my landlord was lovely. It was right next to a bus stop and only a ten minute ride from campus, almost ideal.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't really go to big parties. I'm more of a small time get together with a few friends kind of person.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love all of the restaurants in Salt Lake City, I lived in a shopping district and within walking distance had Indian, and Greek, and Hawaiian, and just many different options.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I've never been adversely affected by the campus strictness at my school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I love all the food trucks on campus. My favorite is Bento. I also like having a Panda Express so close to campus, and I love the fries from the Union.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As a freshman they offered me several scholarships which were needs based as well as first come first served, I had to write thank you notes for a few of them, which was lovely as well. These scholarships took a lot of the burden of going to school without the money to actually pay for it off. However, as a sophomore, despite applying for financial aid earlier, I received no needs based scholarships, even though my needs are the exact same.

Scholarships: The fees just come at you out of nowhere. Sometimes their financial aid office ends up charging you too much then refunds you the money. But they should be more on top of this so it does not happen period.

Campus Housing: It is nice to get to know a bunch of new people when you live in the dorms. There are a lot of things going on all of the time. They just built a new student center.

Guys & Girls: I really don't go there for the people

Campus Food: The food trucks are the best.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in the dorms and sharing a room with someone was a bit uncomfortable. The food was not appetizing. However, the housing and people in the dorms were extremely nice and outgoing.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of availability in downtown Salt Lake. The prices aren't too bad, but it's hard to find a place with a washer and dryer and parking space unless you're living in a basement/duplex.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Plenty of options off campus. You can find anything.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
