Utah State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (21)
Thought that it was very individualized and helped students finish fast!
Utah State University offered the type of college experience I was looking for. Smaller class sizes, individual attention, and a beautiful and accessible campus.
Utah State University has an exceptional education department. The classes are specifically aimed at preparing pre-service teachers for addressing all the needs of their future students. Teacher candidates are given opportunities for classroom instruction from highly qualified instructors with a wealth of experience behind them. They learn how to form relationships with students, motivate them to want to learn, and guide them using strategies that help them to think critically and acquire the knowledge they will need to be productive, contributing members of society.
The professors take a real interest in the students. I learned things that helped me to be a successful professional. Lots of time spent in real elementary classrooms.
I rushed through in three years and wish I would have taken longer. There's no other place like it when it comes to learning about unique subjects and being surrounded by smart people.
Absolutely loved my time at USU. Incredible environment, for having fun AND learning.
USU provides an education that make their Graduates competitive in the work place. It is a great collage. very affordable. beautiful location.
I absolutely loved USU. The professors are phenomenal and so willing to help you out. I'm especially fond, obviously, of those professors I interacted with in the English department. You can tell they love what they teach. I would recommend USU to anyone, regardless of major.
USU is a great school in general. I liked many of many gen ed classes, but the Technical Writing Emphasis at USU is generally a joke and a waste of your time and money. Most of the instructors I had were rather lazy (doing the bare minimum and not teaching their students much if anything useful in the real world) and the program itself should be deleted because it doesn't prepare most students for a career that will get them out of poverty. (If you are a male going into technical writing you may have better luck than I have had.) Go into teaching or nursing or some direct career path and avoid the humanities altogether if you wish to get an actual full-time, benefited job when you graduate from college. People who graduate in English should go into teaching or prepare to work in retail---those are your real life options. Maybe this program was a bad fit for me personally, but truly this degree doesn't prepare you for anything except student loan debt that you can't pay off because you can seem to find a full-time, decent job that pays more than $10 an hour in the 4 years after you graduate. I remember many of the instructors weren't able to really show us how to much of anything in InDesign or Photoshop or Dreamweaver or ANY of the computer programs we were supposed to learn in this major. The students ended up figuring out how to navigate these programs and show each other how to do tasks in the program.
My school was a great fit for me. It was a nice small, college town and that could be a bad thing for some folks. Some folks prefer to be near a big city while others don't. I was a student-athlete and I enjoyed the close-knit community.
Yes I would. I wanted to go to medical school and most of my peers were choosing majors in Biology & Chemistry. I didn't want to study biology, especially plant and animal biology so I changed my major to something that I could see myself enjoying. I thoroughly enjoyed analyzing human movement, biomechanics and exercise physiology
Make sure that you pay close attention to find out what you want to do. That can be hard as a freshman or sophomore, but I implore you to take the time to find out what interests you, what excites you, and delve deeper into it to figure out if it's something that will still excite you years from now. Pick something you want to do, not something that's doled upon you by your parents or friends.
