It's a great school, it's a very open and welcoming community that very diverse. They have great staff/teachers, the schools very helpful and encouraging; they was their students to succeed. There's so many opportunities and resources you can use that's provided by the school and that are also on campus. They want you to participate in other things than just your classes; they set up all kinds of events you can go to, there's also clubs you can join!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Utah Valley University has been great so far. I love how campus is connected, especially during the colder months, but we can also walk outside if we want during both the warmer months and the colder. My class sizes haven't been very big which is really nice, I can get to know my professors better and they can get to know me and help me with my struggles in the class. There's always something to do at the school, they have plenty of fliers that go around telling us all the activities. I have always met very nice people at school, everyone is friendly but keeps to themselves at the same time. There is a bunch of job opportunities at the school which is very nice, especially since you don't have to work during the holidays since there's no school. Utah Valley University has impressed me a lot and has met all of my wishes for what I thought college would be like.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is average. Classes are about what you expect out of them, professors are knowledgable yet don't seem really passionate about what they do. A lot of them work outside of teaching so it makes me think that they are teaching to supplement income at home. The campus is nice and is all indoors so you can get anywhere without walking outside during the winter months. Parking is a joke and can cause you to miss class if you have a class that starts between 10-11am. Food and other amenities are good, about what you would find driving around.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe it is a very nice school and has many winning features. The professors are amazing and kind, and the student body is not overwhelming but comforting. The buildings are quite nice and the scenic routes are to die for. The accessibility to transportation is also very effective and amazing​.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is a jack of all trades. It isn’t a serious university that people fantasize about (for example, we have no football team) but, whoever you go, you can find quality education. The school offers a very wide variety of majors and subjects to choose from and guaranteed that you’ll finish your degree being very proficient in said field.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Utah Valley University. Each of my classes has students with unique perspectives and backgrounds; because our campus is so inclusive, everyone feels safe in knowing that they can share those perspectives openly. My university is also stellar academically, because it focuses on having the students get as much in-field, real-life experience as possible. This provides the option to understand what a career truly entails, and whether we want to continue in that field of study. This is also great because it allows me to understand what I'll be doing with the education I'm receiving!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Utah Valley University is a highly inclusive and opportunistic school with many services available free or cheap to students. The academics here are on par, if not above those of other local colleges. Additionally, the professors are passionate about their subject matters, but also understand the importance of allowing students enough free time to “live” outside of college. Students are challenged to meet industry standards and are given multiple opportunities to shadow worksites, meet real work professionals, and receive constructive criticism from industry experts. As an Art and Design major, this is especially useful because it allows us the rare opportunity to put our foot in the door by networking and collaborating with students and experts alike. This caring for student’s future success really sets UVU apart from other colleges, in my opinion. Additionally, UVU provides several non-academic services to students such as free group therapy, affordable medical exams, free access to gym services, drive in movies, concerts, discussion panels, meet and greets, etc. All of these show a real attentiveness to college students and makes this university feel like home! However, there is still room for improvement. Many students lack adequate parking spaces or find off-campus housing prices too expensive—many would prefer an on-campus system that includes much needed student discounts. Other students have also found difficulty with finding classes with adequate times or sessions. Many popular classes do not have enough sessions or professors to accommodate the size of the student body, resulting in much stress and confusion at the expense of the students. Overall, I don’t believe this overshadows the many perks of attending UVU. The environment at Utah Valley is so positive and accommodating, that I’m sure any student complaints will be resolved promptly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

No university is perfect, and UVU doesn't try to be. That being said, it can be the perfect place for many different people of completely different backgrounds. Along with it's high acceptance rate, Utah Valley University makes it known that they accept students from all walks of life wanting to further their education. They offer classes that cater to both the full time, morning achiever, and evening or night classes for those whose schedules are full to the brim with previous commitments already. UVU also shares professors that teach at BYU, Utah State, and University of Utah, and I've repeatedly listened to professors talk about how they teach the same things as at the more hoity toity universities here, but feel as though UVU students really value the education and don't wear a sense of entitlement. I've personally had experiences where professors and department heads went out of their way to help me gain the experience I will need for my career out of basic and higher up classes. I love that they really care about their students, and are always pushing internships and experience gaining opportunities. That being said, the only really disappointing things about UVU are the parking and that tuition went up this year. Good luck finding a space after 8 AM. As for tuition, I heard it is going to keep rising for the next little while, but we will see .
