4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I transferred from a private college in Salt Lake City my sophomore year. I initially was dreading to going to "UVU". It has a reputation in my home town for being the college for slackers and how it used to be a trade college in the early '90s. However, I love Utah Valley University. My major is awesome, I have so many leadership opportunities and I am heading my own research project. All of the professors that I have had are pretty great. I really like that tuition is very low and that I can balance a job with 15 credits if I schedule my time wisely. That isn't to say the coursework isn't challenging, but professors here understand that you have obligations outside of school and if you are having problems with the curriculum or at home, they will point you in the right direction and help you out in a heartbeat.

I also have to say that I have received a lot of support from the faculty and staff here, Student Health Services saved my mental health and my wallet more than once to help me receive the care that I needed to be the best student possible.

The only gripe I have is the administration, which is to be expected. I dislike the president of the college because he is trying to make it more friendly as a BYU alternative. Everyone here is an adult and can make their own decisions about their religious preferences without catering to the Mormon population at every turn. There is very little sex education available to the students because of the religious climate in Utah County. Some very religious classmates have issues with women attending the university, however they are usually asked to leave the class if that happens. Paperwork is a beast to complete if you have abnormal circumstances and if you are within the leadership of the club it is hard to organize events due to all of the paperwork stating that you aren't competing with the bookstore.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's big, and there is no student housing. However, it's a great community and the people are great. Classes are small enough so you get quality one-on-one time with professors. There is a wide variety of classes to choose from and it's easy to make friends.
