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 .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When UVU came to my high school I knew it was the school for me. They were the most exciting and had the best overall presentation. They gave off a fun, inviting, and exciting atmosphere. I have not been disappointed by UVU. One of UVU‘s big themes they always talk about is that they are an engaged learning school, and I truly believe that I have found that at UVU. I feel like UVU is preparing me for the professional world, and if there’s something I want to learn that I’m don’t feel like I’m being taught, my professors will make it a point to change their curriculums to fit my needs. I am very proud to call myself a Wolverine. There are lots of ways to get involved on campus, and not just through sports. UVU has tons of clubs and student events going on weekly that students can be a part of so they can connect and have fun. There are tons of mentor programs and teachers are always available to talk so that students can be in charge of their success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first learned of UVU, I thought that it wasn't the school for me. I would often hear others talk about how amazing it was, yet it just felt like a small town college where all the high school kids go to easily. But since my original assessment of the school, I have realized that it has grown to be more than just a college. It proudly shows off its university status by growing as well as refining its education system. I am now happy I have a place to get a degree that is affordable and reliable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like the school, great environment for learning and social life. Although there aren’t a lot of sporting events the school works hard to have events that make up for the lack of sporting events. The professors here really want you to succeed and care about you and your academics. Overall a great school!
