Overall Experience: The University of Utah has an exceptional business department. The professors there were so inspiring, they confirmed my choice to attend their school of business.

Overall Experience: Overall I have been highly dissatisfied with my education at this university thus far. As a transfer student, I had heard nothing but amazing things about the university, the classes and the professors. This still may be true for specific majors and departments, but as a student studying communications I have been highly disappointed. The professors have been horrific and couldn't care less about whether or not we succeed. The professors put forth very little effort into the curriculum, and truly don't seem to care for their students. Overall, I have just been highly disappointed with the professors and courses within the communications major.

Overall Experience: Within the state, a degree from the university has a high value. Outside of the state very few people know what the school is and therefore the degree holds less value. I have not had the opportunity to experience the outreach and career fairs on campus. I have not utilized the resources within the career services department as I have had little success with them when it comes to internships and prospects. They were immensely helpful for seeking an internship within the state, but I took it into my own hands and found a wonderful internship in New York by myself. That being said, I do think that these tools are extremely helpful and they are great resources to utilize for networking and connecting with other professionals in your intended career field.

Health & Safety: Sexual assault is an issue on all college campuses. It is a horrible reality, but a reality nonetheless. That aside, the university provides a very safe environment with available security escorts for those that do not feel comfortable walking around campus alone at night. I feel extremely safe on campus and within my community at the university.

Greek Life: Had it not been for the Greek community at my university I don't know if I would have been able to have the same incredible experience that I have had thus far. It gave me an amazing group of women to befriend that I know will be in my life for years to come. I am not part of Greek life for the parties and have found a way to make it a life-changing experience. I am currently serving as the community service chair for my chapter and find great fulfillment in being able to get my house involved in amazing organizations in our community. It is apparent on campus who is Greek and who is not. It can also become very apparent that there is an "us and them" dynamic from time to time. It doesn't have to be that way, but some of those involved in Greek life keep to themselves and only associate with fellow Greeks. This can present Greek life in a poor light as well as isolate us from the rest of the student body as we are stereotyped by the rest of the students.

Athletics: From what I have witnessed in my brief time at this institution it is apparent that athletics and fitness are extremely important to the university. We are a rather large research and medical school, the influence of health and fitness is apparent in all aspects on campus. The facilities for both athletes and non-athletes are extremely clean and modern. The school spirit revolving the athletics program is unparalleled. People travel from all over the valley to watch and participate in the university's athletic events.

Overall Experience: As a transfer student to this university I find myself comparing my new school to my previous one. I absolutely love the school that I am currently attending, but the professors are utterly horrible and I have yet to meet an instructor that appears to mildly care about our education or the content they are presenting. I would definitely choose my university again and don't regret my choice. I just wish I had known going into this experience that the professors don't care for students, the curriculum or our education.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is great. Everyone is except for the tuition fee. It's too expensive. The shool should offer financial aid which is easily accessible to eligible students. I would suggest that they make more scholarship and grant programs.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe that the University you choose plays a big part in your future success but your attitude and effort plays a bigger part.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I haven't heard of any campus crime so far.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My school is a new building so everything is new and clean

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks and non Greeks have the same privileges. No one is higher or lower. Being a Greek or not is no big deal in my school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They don't have much sports facilities because it is a new school established in 2014.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In my opinion, my school is great but the tuition fee is impossible to finance for middle class people like me without outside support. The school has scholarship programs but it is limited. They don't have a good financial support to low income family students.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life seems like it's just another part of the campus. It blends in and only those involved really speak of it. If you're not a member they don't treat you differently but of course they try and convince you to join.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Incredibly integrated athletics. The football team is all the campus consistently talks about. It does mean other sports get overshadowed though, but when there is a football game everyone is roaring to go and see it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school staff has consistently shown they are there to support the students. The student always knows there is someone they can talk to or someone who will listen to them when even their friends won't. It's understanding of issues that arise as well. The students on campus though seem to be so focused on themselves they don't see the outside world, but maybe that's similar to all campuses.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: For the most part I like classes but I feel a lot of value is placed on how well you test. I would like to see less importance on how well you test and finding different ways to show what you've learned.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The university encourages you to finish your degree and persue your desired feild of work but I have not interacted much with the career services on campus.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel like the campus does a good job of giving you resources to be safe on campus but there has still be some assaults. I feel uncomfortable if I'm alone on campus at night.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I've heard both good and bad about Greek life. It seems like a majority of the sororities and fraternities tend to exclude certain people but like anything else there is always bad with the good.

4 College Senior

Athletics: University of Utah athletics has a lot of support from not only the school but the fans as well!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like the science classes at my school and I like how there's a lot to get involved in. But the people there aren't very friendly and it's hard to make friends when coming out of state. Also, I feel like our tuition goes to pointless things when there are things that the school needs but are put on the back burner.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know that there are tons of opportunities for work study jobs. As for finding a job in your area of study, I feel that is a little more challenging. Also, if you graduated from my school in the medical field, the University Hospital puts you in front of others which can be nice.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus police are really great. They helped me when I needed them and they were fast and effective about it. They are a really great resource when it comes to campus security and safety.

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.
