Utah Valley University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
This college offers a wide variety of courses in many different disciplines. The faculty works hard to build good relationships with their students and take the time to teach in such a way that students understand. The campus is sprawling and this needs to be taken into consideration when planning when to take specific classes. You may only have 10 minutes to get from one end of campus to the other, which can be difficult. I loved my time at this school, though, and recommend it to anyone who wants a more liberal education within Utah Valley.
I was instructed by some of the best Mathematical instructors I have ever seen. I was also given the pedagogical teaching knowledge that is the basis for a teacher to seek and ensure student learning. I was prepared for my profession and felt confident in beginning my career. I also found that even after I graduated I had the support of some of those amazing instructors They allowed me to contact them ask questions and join with them as a colleague in teaching professional development and associations.
Utah Valley University was wonderful. I met many caring, dedicated professors. More specifically let me express my gratitude and admiration to the Education Department. I was extremely impress with how dedicated the faculty is. They are a very fine example of the embodiment of a teacher.
I felt very well prepared for my career in Elementary Education. The classes were applicable and the assignments were informative. The practicum experiences prepared me for my student teaching experience. My supervisor as I student taught, helped me to be reflective and improve. I loved my experience in the program.
The campus is nice and new, but the school is overcrowded. It is a good school to start out with before transfering to another school.
I believe my college experience prepared me to be a better citizen and reliable member of my community. The work load that was expected of me to accomplish helped me to take on multiple responsibilities in my home, neighborhood, and religious affiliation. In my mind college can only benefit you if the proper dedication and focus is applied.
Utah Valley University has a large student body but the teachers treat their students very intimately. The professors really care about each student and you don't feel like just another number, like universities with the same number of students.
It is tedious sometimes, but overall it is a great experience. Lots of what you learn you will forget, unless you're majoring in the subject, but it does teach discipline and the drive to finish something ( 4 year degree)
I attended two other Utah colleges before graduating from UVU. While I had a great college experience at all three colleges, UVU did the best job of preparing me to exit college. UVU did a great job of helping me to think beyond college and into my future. There was an emphasis in preparing for graduate school or for applying to jobs, as well as participating in out of class activities that look great on a resume or CV. I am so glad I was able to graduate from a school that cared enough to prepare me for the years beyond college.
I recently completed my UVU's Global B.S. in Aviation Science with an emphasis in Aviation Administration. I was able to do 100% of my work online while working full time. The course work was manageable working because every class was very structured and standardized. All assignments were due Sunday night so this gave me the flexibility to determine when I would balance family, work, and school. I knew what to expect from each class, the tests were fairly easy, the assignments required a lot of work but were thought provoking. If you have self discipline and a brain you can finish this degree with decent grades. The teachers for the most part were knowledgeable and willing to help if you need it. I had one awful teacher who took 3 weeks to get back to me. But overall I loved my experience and got a job at an airport shortly after graduating. I am now working on my Airport Certified Employee certification and my MBA looking to be at the Director level of an airport someday. UVU has definitely helped me work toward this goal.
