Overall Experience: Im currently planning on attending The University of Utah, and i am currently a graduate of Utah Valley University with my pre-professional associates degree. I have been accepted to there computer science program, and would prefer not to take out some loans.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've actually really loved my experience at U! I think you definitely need to put in the effort if you go here though... It can be kind of intimidating to have some of these teachers who know so much that you want to impress, but if you study hard, you can make it.

Health & Safety: We have campus police. If we feel unsafe, we can call them and they can take us to our car at night. We have cameras installed. We have text message system. If there is an incident, we will get a text to be aware of it.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The buildings are close by to school. Also, school provides shuttle to closet building of your class. It's great!

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't much about greek life!

4 College Senior

Athletics: I don't know much about my school athletics. I know that football is popular in my school and students really support our team!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience has been great! The school is huge. I made so many friends. My school is probably one of the schools with a lot of diverse students. It is just amazing!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is strong and almost every student is involved with at least supporting our teams.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The U is great! The professors really know what they're teaching. The atmosphere is one that promotes learning and growing. The U has every extra curricular activity and club you could imagine. If I had to choose a college all over again I wouldn't do it any other way!

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors are great, all the programs at the school are extremely educational which is wonderful. We are taught in ways that we can take what we learn into the real world, after we graduate. Registering for the school is a tedious process, but not difficult. Full-time school is quite a bit of work, but it's fine if you know you can handle it. There are a number of places to study and get academic help.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The University is quite diverse, but nonetheless diverse populations are still a huge minority at the school. I don't think anyone in the majority realizes the experiences of diverse minorities. Sometimes they do not consider the differences among students and why it's important to acknowledge them. The Social Work program does its best at trying to make diverse populations heard and a part of the University.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is no peer pressure to use any sort of drugs or drink alcohol. The program I'm in is actually strong about providing help and counseling to addicts, so drugs/substances are a sensitive topic. Students drink, but it's not excessive, and it's not forced on anyone which is nice.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never been in a situation in which I didn't feel safe while on campus, however I don't think other people may feel that way. I don't quite know of many security measures taken to keep the students safe. I don't feel unsafe, but I don't know what is being done to keep me and other students secure.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: All the professors I've had thus far are very involved with what they're teaching which allows us a real-world perspective. Each professor has a different style of teaching which allows for a variety of learning styles. They have all been quite caring about our ability to succeed, and self-care.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The program I'm in is always sure to keep students updated on internships, jobs, and volunteer opportunities available to them. We are able to get involved if we so choose to be.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek Life at my school. I've only heard a little bit about it from other students who are involved in it. I don't care much for it, but I know they do community service which is a great aspect of our Greek Life.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The University of Utah is a PAC 12 school so the athletics are huge for everyone in the school, community, and state. Football especially is a sport everyone participates in, the team, the fans, etc. The sports bring the students together, and support is intense. Athleticism overall is important to this school and its students.

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.
