4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love school. You get a lot of freedom. I love going to the sport events, going to class and talking to random people in the library building. If I could do it all over, I honestly from the bottom of my shoes, would not choose this school first. The reason is because I can't afford tuition and sometimes, I feel like I made the wrong choice to come here. I would choose this school, but I would want to transfer here from a community college. That way, I could get all my general education classes out of the way and get in-state tuition.

Overall Experience: Everyone is nice however you don't want to get stuck doing group work. There are plenty of places to eat as well as quite study areas.

Overall Experience: Besides how hard it is to pay i love this school

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Utah is really a great school. Some things are really irritating, mainly financial things and processing of information, but still, relative to other universities it is not that expensive. I love the campus & think its very beautiful although it can be had to walk when classes are on opposite ends of it in the winter months. There's lots of opportunities for growth and advancement if you look for them here. I feel they give you a lot of freedom to do as you please as they should so it can be easy to not always get involved as much as you should. But they're very good at giving you access to information on these things, especially your freshman year you will likely hear about every option out there.

Overall Experience: So far, everything about the U has been great. The teachers are awesome, the students are friendly, and the library has to be the greatest place for studying I've ever seen.

Overall Experience: The professors were good, very friendly and intelligent. They didn't assign meaningless assignments. They were organized. The students were nice. A lot of commuters so I didn't mean a ton of people.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's huge and overwhelming at first, but there are many groups and mentor programs to help first years adjust. Once you find the main 1-2 buildings for your major, it's easy to get around. Campus shuttles are helpful and drivers will help you a ton. Go to ASUU for tons of activities and ideas of how to get involved. Lots of free stuff and fairs on the Union lawn. Free UTA.

Overall Experience: The greatest part about this school has been the teaching staff. Each professors has been extremely knowledgeable about their subjects. They have also been helpful and encouraging. They will make themselves available to help the students the best they can. They have also been highly complimentary for work well done.

The student organizations are extensive and diverse. There are always extra-curricular activities to get involved in, whether you are interested in arts, sports, service, etc. There is a place for everyone.

The libraries are large and have study areas that fit any style, whether you prefer a quite area or a wide room with lots of other students around.

Overall Experience: It's a great school in a great city. My teachers have been knowledgeable in their subjects and the homework is not excessive as I hear it is at other Utah colleges. The campus is beautiful and accessible, and there are so many ways to get involved. I say it's okay, because it's still just school. I go to class, write papers, and just want to earn a degree.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The people there do not share my values as a whole so I don't spend more time than I need to at school with them. I do enjoy the professors and it is one of the nation's more accredited universities for my major.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The film program could use some work. Classes are always scheduled into the night and there are only a couple hands-on classes. There are no classes about digital cameras and lenses. One guy literally teaches all the film courses and he is stuck up. The students are also very full of themselves.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The expense of being an out of state student makes the college experience very stressful. I wish the school could have helped me out more.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I think I've been stressed and I wish that college wasn't this expensive and that classes would be handed out according to what we were planning on majoring because having to pick classes out is one of the more stressful things and I think that buying books will also be. I wish that there could just be books we check out instead of having to buy books.

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.

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!

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.
