3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The classes I had transferred were from High school to UVU so it was all done very simply for me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish they would help you understand more what you need to do to meet your goals in the future but other than that I have really enjoyed it there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my time at UVU so far and I hope that I can continue to learn and go here.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is a fairly easy school to get into but the classes taught are great and you learn enough but the school does well with realizing that there is life outside of school and they generally don't overload you with homework, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: As long as you are able to stay disciplined, I highly recommend online classes if you work full time as well.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body here is generally very friendly and very religious.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is decently easy to see the financial aid I am receiving. I just wish it was more clear how to receive scholarships from the college.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I haven't yet graduated from the college I am attending.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I have really enjoyed going to UVU. It isn't too hard to find any of the classes or gymnasiums I have needed to go too.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Each class is held on different days at different times with entirely different schedules so that I, as a student, can schedule my classes around my other commitments. My classes are flexible in the aspect that we are given a semester outline and know which dates are the most important. If we have an emergency come up, we have the ability to talk to our professors about it and take a course of action to maintain the emergency schedule as well as the workload of the classes.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would choose UVU again in a heartbeat. I've had so many great experiences here! I met my fiance at this school, I met some of my best friends at this school, I have become infinitely more self-confident at my school, I feel pride for my school. I am a member of Student Government and it provides me opportunities to connect with people all across the country. I get to plan activities that I know students will enjoy attending. I get to spend a few days in the mountains with the student council to get away the hustle and bustle and plan these incredible activities. I have loved every ounce of stress that has been put on me because I like the challenge. I thrive through challenge and UVU is challenging. The experience is easy, but we encourage each student to push themselves to the next level and become the best them that they can be. We want everyone to succeed and/or be involved in something.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: UVU offers almost every major in the book. We have graduate programs, certificates of completion, and everything in between. We all have a fair shot at graduating with whatever we want to do. We have student government that makes everything possible and more fun; they also work as the liaison between students and faculty who do not feel as connected. We are very diverse in the fact that we have professors who care about each individual student. So many classes, class styles, and professors are offered each semester. Class sizes are small which makes it easier to get to know your professor and ask for help confident that you are a human being and not another number.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: A degree from Utah Valley University is almost as good as a degree from Harvard. We have top notch academics and an incredible student government. Everything the school does is for the success and enjoyment of the students. The students are very well connected to the faculty and staff as well as the other way around. Everyone has someone they can bring their issues to and get them resolved. Its incredible to see the student government putting their own opinions aside and taking care of the general student body. They take great care of the faculty too. Everyone works very closely together and has connections everywhere to help and single individual with any aspect of what he or she needs.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: The online courses that I have taken have given me some of my worst grades. Not only is it due to my personal learning skills, but we were offered no extra help or tutoring. We were required to read a book, take quizzes online, and write papers on certain specific subjects. Basically, we were doing the class completely on our own because the "professor" for these online courses was absentee most of the time. It would take days at a time to get a question answered, and then he would be upset because we turned in our assignment late. He expected us to just know everything because it was in the book, but most people (like me) cannot learn something by reading a book. We have to take notes on it and be told and shown what it is and means.

5 College Senior

Student Body: In the student council group alone, we have so much diversity. Some of us are ridiculously shy to be in leadership positions and others are totally fine being the center of attention all the time. We complement each other in that aspect. We have 32 members in our executive student council and 30,000+ students at our university. Our student council represents every single aspect of our students. We have a member who is gay, one who is Mexican-American, one from Venezuela, quite a few from the Midwest states like Nebraska and Oklahoma. We are very diverse as a council and very diverse as a student body. We have many commonalities, but so many differences in ethnicity, religion, politics, and sexual orientation. Its astounding.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is decently cheap, considering the location and clout of my university. Financial aid is easily accepted and really no big deal to find. The school has immense numbers of scholarships, which only apply to certain students, but they do offer involvement opportunities.

4 College Senior

Career Services: The career center is awesome at working with each individual student to figure out and understand what that student should be studying. The students are in charge of their own futures and they have full support from the faculty. Job prospects are incredible no matter what program on is in. Jobs are available almost everywhere and it makes it nice to have a job set up when you're getting done with school. No worries about finding the right one because you already have the job held down that you were looking for.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: All of my professors are extremely great to work with and the small class size helps me be able to ask questions and feel like my teachers know me so they can answer in the best way possible.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Registration is incredibly simple and fast. The workload is pretty average, I would say, but not so overwhelming that I never have time for anything else. Its an easy balance. We have long tutoring center hours and multiple tutors for each subject during those hours that are very helpful in reviewing final papers or preparing us for finals

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: We have all kinds of resources and administrators looking out for the students and making sure our voices are heard

5 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Lot's of classes that work with different schedules.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I happen to really enjoy ballroom and UVU is well known for their ballroom team so it gives me a chance to enhance my skills in that area.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Again, the only issues I had with professors was with my online math course.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The only problem I had was with my advisor who seemed very difficult to get ahold of.

2 College Student

Online Courses: The work load was huge, I wasn't able to keep up and since I struggle in math it was especially hard. I wasn't let known there were options for tutoring until almost the last day of the class.
