As a musical theatre student, our cohorts are tightly knit and our programs are incredible. Our professors are all professionals and they practice what they preach. As a school, I feel like the buildings are exciting to explore and the work associated with our degrees is effective in creating a learning environment. This place is very inclusive. I didn't put forward much effort but I ended up with a lot of friends. I feel like I can count on my schedule and I don't hate coming to school.
UVU is a great college to attend. The environment is a bit boring, but it's affordable and safe and overall a great place to learn. There are fun opportunities and people to meet here.
UVU is an excellent university that offers many opportunities and activities for students to engage and learn. The students are friendly, as well as the professors. The professors I've had, have made their class environment feel safe and engaging to be in.
I am not on campus often, and don't actually know that much comparatively to other students, but what I have seen is alright. Though, it is surprisingly easy to get lost. I got lost trying to find a classroom only five minutes away from where I was and it ended up taking me about fifteen minutes to find it. That isn't to say that there aren't signs or maps. There are, this one classroom was just more hidden than most of them.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Utah Valley University is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I have gotten a amazing amount of knowledge in a surprisingly short amount of time. The professors, instructors and students make learning and practicing new skills easy and comfortable. I'm currently in an EMT Basic class for my Emergency Service major and the life saving skills I have learned with stick with me for the rest of my life. They could help me save a life in the future and it'll be because of my college experience. I've also learned how to be responsible and proactive. School is difficult and I believe that if you can get through school, you can do anything.
There is some confusion now and then for me in trying to enroll for classes, and what I believe is the worst thing, is that I don't know who to talk too. If I'm confused about something, it's hard for me to get an answer or solution.
My school is a new University with great opportunity to succeed, it has great programs and a diverse variety of poeple, programs and activities especially in the education program I am attending.
My classmates are not the brightest bunch of people I've met, but they are very pleasant and great people. There seems to be a lack of effort when it comes to their education, but I would put that down to the diversity at this school. Tuition is cheap and the University is a good place for not getting into debt, however I have met people with a wide range of educational backgrounds. Overall, the people are very agreeable and the environment and atmosphere is a good one.
Utah Valley University is still not widely known, however it is growing far beyond what was expected. It has become one of the largest schools in Utah. The wide range of people who attend and most definitely the quality of education recieved is one of the best. Although there are many students enrolled, it does not result in overcrowding in classes. Almost all classes have thirty students or less making it an easier learning enviroment.
UVU has been a wonderful college for me in the time that I've been there. I absolutely love the diversity of people you can find there. While you do expect to find a wide array of students and professors at any college, I think Utah, and Utah county specificially, has a much higher expectation of not being as diversified. The overwhelming number of residents in the area have very similar religious and political beliefs. But at UVU, I've always felt like every group is well represented and the mix of people compliments each other perfectly.
Low tuition, fastest growing university in the nation. More liberal than most universities in Utah. Arts, Computer Science, Nursing and Business are the strong fields of study.
This school is built to help people succeed.
Everyone should. This school has everything anyone would need to get their degree in a wide respectable range of majors.
Any student is able to recieve an education at Utah Valley University. It is one of the largest schools in Utah, which leads lets people know that this is a great school to attend. It is open enrollment and there are a variety of people to attend this university. There are students from all over the world who came to this school. Anyone who has the desire to get a college education, Utah Valley University is a great place to begin!
I wish I had known to look at ratemyprofessor.com before I had come to UVU. When I started college down at Snow there weren't that many options for teachers so even if they got a bad rating there wasn't much you could do about it, so I never bothered making it a habit. However my last semester I picked a teacher that received a 1.6 on the rating and I failed his class. It was an awful semester for me so I wish I had known to constantly check the website.
The most frustrating things at UVU are the lack of school spirit and unhelpful counselors .
The best part of campus life at UVU is the clubs and different organizations to get involved with. There's so much variety and it's easy to get involved with many.
The worst part is that there is little school loyalty so there's not a ton of school pride, which is really too bad.
I personally have not stayed in the dorms, but I have seen them, and in my opinion, they are quite nice.
The academics are excellent. I began attending Utah Valley University because two of my closest friends graduated from there, and had nothing but positive things to say. After my first semester, I was already spreading the word, and 3 of my friends registered for classes there. One of them has already graduated! The professors are top notch and the class structure is very enjoyable. It makes learning fun, and I'm not so intimidated being in a University setting.
For the most part, UVU is not really a party school in my opinion. My sister went to UGA, and I can tell you that it was ranked the number 1 party school in the USA quite a few times. Generally when I am hanging out near campus, I like to go to In and Out burger in Provo, or snowboarding (which I did last weekend). I believe like anything, sports is among on of the most popular activities on campus. I feel we have a good basketball team!
One of the best things about Utah Valley University is the overall willingness of the staff. I am never concerned if I am having a problem with registration, or if I may need a little extra time on an assignment. The staff is always willing to help me out and go the extra mile to do so. The best part about it, is that they are always willing to help with a smile.
My best friend whom I went to flight school with is a UVU alumni. He had nothing but positive things to say about the school, which made my decision easy!
Fortunately, being that Utah Valley University is a college setting, the cliques of high school begin to fade, and everyone tends to associate with each other in a more respectful manner.
