The university of Utah is very diverse. they are a very welcoming and overall accomplishing and developing university. I love how they view all issues from different races and take them into consideration allowing students to help try to resovle them.

I think that the University as a whole is a very good institution for the price and since their induction into the PAC12 it is getting exponentially better. I came to the U to study business (Accounting) which is nice because the David Eccles School of Business is a great school for business. I am also a part of the Honors College at the University which has also been a great experience. I chose to come to the University of Utah over going to the University of Chicago and so far I am extremely pleased with my choice.

Overall this is a great school to attend. The campus is beautiful and the academics are on point! As far as the party scene goes, this is a dry campus, but there are frequent parties right off campus regularly. Greek life is also very popular here and there are a ton of clubs so pretty much everyone will find something to do.
