The University of Utah is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Salt Lake City is the perfect balance of metropolitan life and outdoor life, it's the best of both worlds! I have lived here for over a year and have completely immersed myself into the city life, consisting of amazing performing arts, festivals, film events, farmer's markets, concerts, etc. Even though it's a smaller city, it can seem overwhelming at times. I love taking hikes into the mountains or canyons to escape the city when I need to. It couldn't get any better than that.
