Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I love this school. If you aren't from Utah, you will suffer less culture shock when going to this school for your first experience in this state. The off-campus dining is to die for and we have some of the best thai food and burger places within walking distance of campus.


Alumnus - Grad Year 1966

Overall Rating

Thought it was a very good school that allowed students to grow and mature and provided a very well rounded education. Counselors were very helpful with identifying career goals and opportunities. Felt that professors were outstanding.
