I think the University of Utah is an awesome university, with access to a multitude of degrees. I love that the campus is so diverse, not only with the students, but also with the professors. It is like its own city, and I love that. I feel represented as a young half-Asian, half-white female, and that makes me feel welcomed, safe, and heard. I really hope that I am accepted, because my dad and his siblings attended the University of Utah, and I want to have the same opportunity to receive an outstanding education that will give me the best opportunity post-graduation.
The University of Utah is a good school overall. There's a ton of people of campus, giving one endless opportunities to meet people, however, you have to push yourself. I've been to a couple of extracurriculars and most of them seem to be very community-based; if you're not already a part of the community (Arab Association, Vietnamese Association), it's difficult to feel like you fit in.
I love the University of Utah. I think that there is a place for about everyone at the University of Utah, it is a very diverse school in many aspects and that is one thing that I do love about the school itself. I think it's a great thing because there is a wide variety of career paths that people are taking and also many clubs and organizations that have support groups and friendly clubs that invite everyone to their activities.
The University of Utah has a great atmosphere for research and academics. The University of Utah makes an effort to support students of minorities and underrepresented backgrounds, especially those in STEM - however, you may, on occasion, come across a fellow student or professor with non-progressive tendencies, and, on occasion, you may feel uncomfortable. This is a culture that the University of Utah, and especially ASUU (student government) is actively trying to change. This is a University that cares about its students and is consistently trying to improve itself. I've had spectacular professors who go out of their way to ensure you are doing well, involved, and succeeding in multiple aspects of your life, and I've had professors that tend to just do the bare minimum, but the former category, in my experience, greatly outweighs the latter.
The research opportunities at the University of Utah are spectacular as well. You can get involved in meaningful, complex, and fascinating research the day you step onto campus, and there are multiple organizations dedicated to helping you find the perfect Principal Investigator for you. The University of Utah has programs like the UROP and SPUR that provide funding so that students can pursue research in areas that fascinate them without worrying quite as much about the financial burdens placed on them in college.
The Student Life Center and Union are great buildings for both connection and food, and the Student Life Center is an extremely well-equipped gym as well. The students are generally engaged, and especially around the Honors College campus, there is academic and intellectually challenging conversations to be had with faculty, staff, and other students.
Honestly, the University of Utah was not my first choice of college, but due to challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, it was the University I ended up at - and honestly, it's been a perfect fit. There are many members of the staff - advisors, mentors, and professors - that care about your well-being as a student and many student-led organizations that will help you navigate the ever-changing transition from childhood to adulthood, finances both while you attend school and financial planning for after graduation, and how to simply let loose and have fun. Though the University of Utah is not perfect, I highly recommend that all interested students meet with the enrollment office and current students to learn more.

I am 32 and have been working in manual labor jobs most of my life. I am not ashamed of this and appreciate that I have been able to support my family in this way. I have come to realize that at some point my body will not tolerate the punishment I put it through for work and for that reason I am very motivated to educate myself. I would like to transition to not only working with my hands but to also work with my mind and heart to help others.
I am very excited about this new phase of life and a new ability to serve others with a new skill set. I have no doubt that I will do well and become a well educated nurse.
My classmates are usually friendly and they aer easy to get along with and work with.
I am in the biology field where most students expect to go to pre-professional schools. Within classrooms, there is much competition and sabotage of other students in order to succeed above one another. Not many students truly want to help others. The classrooms are filled with people who are always looking after themselves and will do nearly anything to get ahead.
Convienient with lots of opportunities and a staff and faculty that truly care.
I wish I had known about all of the resources and organizations the school has for students. There is a lot that the school has to offer besides just classes, and to get your money's worth and a good education in general, it is almost critical to utilize the resources that the school has to offer. I wish I would have known how important it is to jump in with both feet from the start.
The U is cool because all the buildings are open and you get to walk from class to class outside. Food offerred at school is good and is avalible all around campus. The library is nice and big with a good computer lab and study rooms.
What I find most frustrating is how scattered everything is- it's such a large campus that you find yourself not having enough time in between classes.
It is a well acredited school, where many people go to get a great education.
The kind of person who should attend the University of Utah is someone who is willing to explore new ideas, challenge their known knowledge, and be ready to be transformed into a better person that will make their dream career real. Not only will you be equipped to become the best you can be, you learn so much in the four or five years in college about yourself so the person definitely needs to be ready to look within themselves and be ready to change for the better.
The University of Utah is unique for many reasons. One outstanding reason is its pristine location. A student at the University of Utah can live in an urban environment, where it is possible to find diversity and social connection while having pristine wilderness in their back yard. The Wasatch Front is a mountain range that offers endless recreational opportunities. One can attend classes in the morning and be rock climbing, skiing, hiking, fishing or any number of other recreational pursuits, in the same afternoon. It offers a balance between social, artistic, academic stimulation and solitude with pristine recreation.
I feel that every single person has an opportunity to fit it.
There is fantastic medical program, but I think what a lot of people know it for is the outdoor recreation. Skiing and snowboarding resorts are between 15-30 minutes away, so they are really simple to get to. Utah has the best snow on earth!
Academics are excellent. To make the dean's list, students need at least a 3.5 gpa, which is .5 higher than most colleges. We study all the time and the professors are really helpful. They are all willing to meet with you outside of class if necessary.
All weird Mormons. Nothing to do in Utah.
Campus is GORGEOUS. It's like walking through a park. However, the parking stinks, so try to live on campus and walk to class or take the campus shuttle. If you live off campus, take the bus, carpool, or take TRAX. We get free public transportation as students.
No. There are plenty of people on campus who are not mormon. Not everyone outside of the LDS faith gets drunk or parties (including me).

We prepare students to enter their career with the knowledge that they will need to lead them through the rest of their lives.

Because we are in Utah, the majority of our campus is stereotyped as Mormon however we probably have the less Mormons than other schools in Utah. Our campus prides itself on diversity.
