I have not participated in any sporting event in the years of my attending Weber, however I have religiously taken P.E classes and visited the gym daily. Their gym is spectacular! Everything I could ever wish to do there is present. Rock climbing walls, kayaks, bicycles, backpacking packs, weight machines, dumbbells, basketball court, two tracks, and a cardio room. There is nothing you could ask for that they would not have. I think every student on campus should take full advantage of the gym and recreation center at Weber, but at the same time i'm grateful most students don't, otherwise it would be crazy crowded!

If you make yourself involved with this school, it becomes more than just a commuter school. I, for example, work as well as am a student on campus. I associate closer with professors and students more now than when I didn't work on campus. On campus is what I call the secret coffee shop. It's in the Art building and is just a tiny little shop on the first floor and they have the best coffee ever! The food in the Atrium is definitely overpriced and the parking is irritating. If this campus could change anything, I would definitely have them add more parking places. The campus has a little pond full of ducks and geese. The geese are terrifying and afraid of nobody, but it is cute when it's spring time and all their little babies are waddling all over the sidewalks. This campus has beautiful grass and landscaping. Tons of shade to sit down and read and study or have a snack. Overall, I would never regret spending my college years at Weber State University.

Weber State University is a very welcoming school. Most of the students and professors are very kind and will help you in any way that they can. Weber provides a great learning environment that encourages and motivates students to do their best. There are so many things to do on campus like going to the library to study or to the student union to see the stress relief dogs that they occasionally bring. During finals week, they had brought many dogs in to help us relieve our stress and it definitely worked and it was one of my favorite experiences at the university even though it was during finals week! They were very cute and cuddly!
