4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Utah Valley will be great for you if you are willing to apply yourself.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Overall I have learned so much and grown so much as a person. One of my absolute favorite experiences at the school so far is the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People class changed my life. If I had to take it again and financially it wouldn't cover it I would pay for it. Sue Stephenson is amazing. The idea of student leadership and success classes is so unique and I love the idea of being so engaged. I would absolutely choose to go to UV you again and again because of how much I enjoy learning everyday when I come to class. One of the only reasons that would keep me from not going as the parking situation. There never seems to be enough parking spots even in the evening.

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: I've had a rough time finding applicable evening courses for my bachelor's degree.

I don't want to lose my job because I can't proceed to take night classes.

4 College Student

Career Services: From what I've seen firsthand people have had a successful time getting and finding jobs after graduating UVU. I think the fact that it is a university not a community college or trade school looks a lot better on a degree or certification. The fact that you're paying more for these classes then a trade school looks better to an employer to me because it shows determination.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Most of the classes I've ever taken up and really small and engaged. The professors are willing to answer questions come in early or stay late so over everything clearly with you. I like that there are several options for specific sections and you can pick the classes that would be the best fit for you. They really encourage engagement in and outside of school with students I feel like it's helped me build a lot of relationships.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I psyched myself about the whole registration process originally. I thought I would be involved in a much more sophisticated group, there's a lot of hipsters and Asians who mostly enjoy school in my opinion.

5 College Student

Academic Experience: I love how much I've learned and grown as a person. Moving on to my bachelor's degree I know can confidently say I know what I want to do. Before I felt like I was making an immature impulsive decision.

SLSS classes are my favorite though!

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Credit transfer was easy--they accepted about 3/4 of my previous credits and applied some of them to core requirement courses. I've been able to substitute classes or complete independent study courses instead of some other classes if I was unable to get in.

4 College Senior

Career Services: UVU does a good job of providing job fairs/career connections post-grad. The faculty I work with are helping me prepare for a grad program even though I don't currently attend.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class size was great--typically small once you got out of General Ed.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: One of the major things about this university is they provide a TON of resources so you land a job or internship while you study, rather than only once you graduate. There are a lot of student opportunities for travel, field study/research, and degree-related internships/work experience.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Once you get out of Gen Ed, it's a really great school (depending on your field of study). Most of the classes reflect the amount of effort you put in: high level philosophy courses will kick your butt if you don't do the work and you can't slack off in any of the language or history courses. There are a ton of internships/jobs available for students and in my experience the faculty will work with you. I was in the Integrated Studies program, so I got a bit of a mix between multiple departments and the program is fantastic. Plenty of opportunities to make a program you want if there isn't something available through the other departments.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Gen Ed classes can be hit or miss, depending on the teacher. Higher level courses can be tough to get into and the parking is awful. However, that being said, there are a lot of positives. The campus is completely connected, which is a big plus for the winter, and their student services are great. There's a ton of classes for outdoor sports/recreation. My experience with the faculty is that they're willing to work with you and make themselves available after/before class, as well as being incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about their fields. There are also quite a bit of resources available through the faculty/university between other campuses in Utah. Their language courses (I studied French, Spanish, and Greek) did a good job of preparing you for using the language--the language lab has available tutors (good ones) in all the languages they offer. They also have great study abroad programs that are affordable, with scholarship options, and they have a ton of internships/jobs available for students. Their night/weekend school offers a lot of courses for those that need them. All in all, studying here was a pretty great experience.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: For the lower level courses, there was an amazing selection to choose from. Obviously, the farther along you get, the harder it becomes to create your schedule because these courses are only offered a few times a year.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I only took one online class. It was an okay class, but they had moved it to online because none of the professors enjoyed teaching it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I did not really use those services, but I know several friends who had good experiences.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: During some of my generals, I had some not great teachers. You have to make sure to check ratemyprofessor.com, for sure. My School of Ed teachers were absolutely amazing. I feel like class sizes were manageable and I got one on one time with my teachers.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: UVU is very focused on applicable learning. In the education department, you spend a lot of time in the field working with teachers. I know that other universities don't give you a good look at what a classroom can be like, but I feel like I was very prepared.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Education is a tough field to be in. Our professors are all current or former secondary education teachers, and they know what it is like to be a real teacher. They challenge us and they support us.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I love that UVU has held on to their past as they move into being a university. It is still possible to get certificates and 2 year degrees, which is great. I feel like it provides a high quality experience for all of the students without passing judgement on any career choices.

4 College Student

Academic Experience: The Work load for the classes are varied depending on the classes and their intensity. They often provide a challenging stretch mentally to help you grasp the concepts better.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: UVU is a great school with a vast variety of people and degrees to choose from.

4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Flexibility of classes is a top notch aspect at this school because it provides a more relaxing learning environment.

3 College Student

Online Courses: The professor/student relationship is one of the biggest things that can impact a student's ability to learn online. Students do not always have that face to face interaction with the professors, therefore, it can be conflicting because they do not always get the extra help they may need.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The quality of courses and professors are sufficient, however, some professors can be misunderstanding or will teach a subject that has been taught from previous courses which therefore has no meaning for some of the students.
