Weber State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (7)
I was duped by WSU staff into believing that an EET was an "Equivalent" to an EE degree. Many of the classes won't transfer to another degree even within WSU if I were to go back and update my degree with an EE degree from the same college. WSU indicated at the time I was in attendance that the EET program was an "Equivalent" (or the same as) degree to an EE degree from other schools. It is not. Without ABET accreditation (www.abet.org) many companies will only higher a graduate of WSU at "Technician" level. Even with 20 or more years of experience, many companies look at the EET degree as "inferior" to an EE degree and don't necessarily care about experience. If you are considering an EET degree, please reconsider a degree that isn't a scam.
I loved going Weber State. It is a smaller college, but with a decent sized campus. Everyone is friendly. Their Zoology/science department is amazing.
The Spanish program was great. All of the professors had high moral standards. The Art program was great in that I edited it with the help of the department head, Jim Jacobs. He allowed me to replace the nude drawing class with illustration. I respect him a lot for this. There were a few professors at Weber State who really talked down about "Mormons" and challenged us (mocked us) in class. The Ogden LDS Institute is a great program for the LDS Students (under age 31) and quite necessary if the student loves the church and believes it is led by Jesus Christ. The Science courses I took at Weber State were top notch. The graphic design courses were great courses but when I attended, I did not have the awesome art building students have now. It was great exercise. I got to run all over campus with a heavy art portfolio and a heavy pack of art supplies and books all the time. Since there are a great many hills, I got great workouts every day. The poor unfortunate students of the Visual Arts program today have to depend upon the gym much more, as they will not get much exercise with everything in one place now in that beautiful art building. I loved the opportunity to work as a computer lab aid and become a supervisor of lab aids. This is one of the things that helped me land a job at Franklin Covey Coaching in 2001. The work on campus opportunities are great and will give the student job experience that will help them get an even better job later. Living while attending Weber State is cost-efficient, as one can get an apartment nearby for much less than one can in other University cities in Utah. I did meet my spouse at Weber State. The social life there is great. I started and ran my own graphic design business. Most of what I learned to make me successful at running a business, I did not learn from Weber State University. Although I was trained in the Art and Design side, I did not take any courses on communications, small business finance, web site design, interpersonal communication, accounting, business management, entrepreneurship or marketing. These would have been great courses to take. This was a big flaw in my study decisions. If you wish to study graphic design at any University, please take classes in these so that if someday you wish to start your own business, you will have less to learn in order to do so.
It was a great school. I truly enjoyed my experience there.
Weber State provides great opportunities with undergraduate research and experience while also providing smaller class sizes and comfortable professor-to-student interactions. Unlike large institutions, you never have 100-200 students in a class taught by a TA.
I have loved the many options I have had to get to where I am. I'm still working towards my goal for my zoology major, but I have loved the connections and opportunities I've had while going here. There are many other things to do and activities to be part of.
I loved Weber State. Everything could be done online, and if something was hard to figure out or do. They were easy to call or go in and talk to. Always willing to help. Always stuff you could look up to figure out what classes you need to take for your major or program or whatever you were doing. Books are way easy to buy, and was easy to sell back. When buying books they always give you a list of the books that are cheaper somewhere else. Help you compare prices. That way you can buy the cheapest option. Ive been going to Weber for 4 years. I have never had a problem that they couldn't solve. All the professors are very helpful and very enjoyable. I really love the online professors also. They will email you back and get back to you with in a few hours to a day. Never a long ways out. They are always willing to work with you and make sure you get the grade you deserve and make sure that you understand everything fully. They have classes at all times of the day morning, afternoon, and night. With online classes you can really do them any time of the day! Usually with them you have a week to complete your set of assignments and tests. Which you have the material way in advanced. Cheaper then most other colleges. I highly recommend Weber State. I love it!!!!!!!
