Not a single person I've come in contact with has not loved their experience at Utah State! With minimal exceptions, professors actually care about their students and are willing to take extra time with students if students show interest. People are full of school spirit and love to take full advantage of the abundant outdoor activities so close to campus. Students are also uncommonly cheerful and friendly around campus as you will often have conversations and make new friends with random strangers just walking to class. Utah State University is unique because of the variety of academic opportunities as well as the helpful and encouraging attitude it offers to every individual that steps on campus.

Logan has amazing off-campus dining options. There is a fantastic variety of types of food, nothing is terribly expensive, there are a lot of unique local-to-Logan places, and there are student discounts aplenty! There's a great mix of popular chains (Paradise Cafe, Kneaders, Chic-fil-a, Costa Vida, Cafe Rio, Wendy's, etc.) and local places. Some of my favorites are Takara Sushi (50% discount on basically all rolls! So affordable and SO GOOD), the Crepery (crepes of all kinds! So delicious), and the Bluebird (which has an old-fashioned soda bar, Bear Lake raspberry jam, and house-made chocolates!).

I love Utah State! The campus is gorgeous but small enough that it doesn't take an hour to get from class to class. I love that everyone loves to be involved and there are always great activities to attend to keep the college spirit high. My school is unique in many ways. The amazing student sections at sports events ("I believe that we will win!"), it's a super safe campus, and although it looks like some small hardly university level college it really does put up great competition and has great programs that ensure hardworking students successful futures. I would never rethink being an Aggie. Go Aggies!
