Academic Flexibility: It's been easy to go to school and work at the same time, because they are flexible with their scheduling, and I've never had any problems with classes overlapping or being at a time that I have to work as well.

Online Courses: You have to be quick to register to get the classes you want, but it's easy once you do so. Doing homework online is convenient and rather easy to do.

Career Services: The career center is a great institution that helps students find internships, jobs, and careers for after graduation. The job fairs they have are useful to see what's out there in the real world for after school.

Overall Experience: I love Utah Valley University.

Overall Experience: One thing I love about Utah Valley is the size of the classes. I remember being nervous to go to my first class because I didn't know how many students to expect having class with, I also didn't know how my professors were going to be. During my first semester I found that I only had one class with a lot of students, and by a lot I mean 30 students. The classes were no bigger than classes in high school. That made me feel better because you're more able to connect with your professors and have a better understanding of what is going on in class. Not only is nice to have a small class because of the professors but also because it makes it easier to meet new people and build a relationship with your classmates.

Academic Flexibility: Utah Valley allows the students to choose a schedule that works best for them. If the student selects and registers for classes when they are first available then you will be able to have a great class schedule that works perfectly for you. Of course when classes start to fill up, it makes it harder to choose an ideal schedule with all the classes you need and want to take. I have never transferred credits to this school or looked at transferring credits to another school so I'm not sure on how that works with Utah Valley.

Online Courses: Personally, I haven't taken an all online class while attending Utah Valley. I have taken a hybrid class which is half online and half in class. Most of the work in hybrid classes are online, but if you miss classes on campus then often times you will fall behind because you won't know what is going on as far as assignments go. A lot of teachers also have in class participation points that are given out to the students that attend. These classes can be stressful especially for those that don't have a computer available to them at all times. I would not recommend these classes if you're a hands-on learner as well.

Career Services: I don't know much about the alumni network at Utah Valley University, but I do know that they offer jobs on campus to alumni that wish to stay and work there. I also know that for a lot of the majors, they offer job fairs. A lot of the professors also come from the industry in which their students are going into, and are willing to help in whatever way they can to get you into the preferred career. Utah Valley University also offers a workshop that goes over your resume and the interview process of jobs. I found this out in my first semester of school and think that it's so nice to have a school that is not just looking at ways they can help you succeed in school but also outside of school and in your future.

Overall Experience: Utah Valley University is so awesome when it comes to keeping their students employed and moving forward towards where they want to be in their career. In my degree alone, there is a page that the hospitality club is in charge of which continues to update openings for jobs in our industry. Not only is this a great thing to get ones foot in the door, but the professors also usually have connections and know some people hiring and are always willing to help their students in any way possible. I have also seen days where Utah Valley has set up job fairs for those looking for a better source of income. Utah Valley also hires students and alumni as part of their staff which I think shows they care ultimately about their students.

Academic Experience: Hospitality and tourism management is a great major at Utah Valley. They offer many classes that get very in depth of the industry. In each hospitality or tourism class I've taken I learn so many new things that are helpful to my degree. There are professors that expect a lot out of the students in this field, but that is because they want you to get a job in the industry as soon as possible. One professor I had would send us students updates about job openings in our area that are in the industry. There are also hospitality clubs that you can join to get to know more about your major and other students in your major.

Overall Experience: Utah Valley University is a great school to attend. They offer a lot of clubs and activities to participate in as an easy way to get to know your peers and classmates. Even though this school is a rather small school for a university, it can be a good thing because all of the buildings are connected so during the winter months you don't have to walk in the cold to get to class. Another great thing about this school is that they offer free seminars to attend every month. They have great speakers that come in and motivate the students to keep going and stay on track to graduation. Most professors I have had are almost always willing to help the students out, with that being said, communications is a must. Utah Valley University has a lot to offer students on campus; great food venders, a three story gym that has two inside basket ball courts, dance, and aerobics rooms, an indoor soccer field, as well as cardio rooms, a weight room, and amazing locker rooms with private showers. The people at Utah Valley University aren't very diverse because most of the student body is from Utah, however most people I have met and had class with have been extrememly nice. Overall, Utah Valley University is a great school to attend and I have had such awesome experiences at this school and can't wait to make more memories.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The dental hygiene program at UVU is very intense and difficult to get into. They admit 16 students annually. With so many looking to be a dental hygienist and UVU being one of the lower tuition costs in Utah, the program is set at an intense level to enter into. One thing that I enjoy about the program is that the pre-reqs apply to several programs and the adviser is so eager to help you. It also has its own building on the west side of campus. The workload is manageable for those who can remain focused and determined. Internships and shadowing are typically easy to accomplish, however job opportunities in Utah are difficult to land. The reasoning because so many desire to be a hygienist there seems to not be enough jobs to balance potential employees. The nice thing is if a student chooses to switch schools, the credits you've accomplished thus far seem to transfer over most generally without conflict.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Utah Valley University has a little bit of everything for everyone. It's very diverse yet does a fantastic job at getting the students connected. They have several programs to get you started and off to somewhere else or to get you graduated directly from the university. Most professors I've met are passionate about what they teach and are eager to help. I would choose UVU over again and recommend it to anyone interested in being extremely social, focused and/or inspired. I didn't know what I want to go into but then I met with my adviser and she helped me see all the many possibilities that UVU has to offer. By seeing those opportunities it helped me meet people, get a sense of direction, and feel the power to accomplish all that I want to.
