Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 1995

The University of Utah is an amazing school. I was in the actor's conservatory which is a highly accredited program. I was awarded a full ride scholarship to the acting program. Classes started at 9 am and went to 5 pm. We usually had 1 hour for dinner and then we went straight to rehearsals. It was an incredibly demanding program that leaves no time for other activities. It would be extremely difficult to have a family and participate in this program. The training is unbelievable. The campus itself is so gorgeous. If you aren't from Utah and you are thinking of moving to Utah you have to be aware of the 4 seasons. Winter is extremely snowy. If you are not used to the snow or don't like the snow, it would be hard. I would highly encourage anyone going into performing arts to complement your degree with a business degree of some kind. The arts, in general, don't prepare you to enter the theatre or art world with a business perspective.

Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2018

I really enjoyed the University of Utah. I thought that the professors were really great and taught thoroughly. They were available for help when I had questions and took the time to help me. I also really liked the career services that the school has available. It was really easy for me to meet with my academic counselor each semester. The University of Utah is a great college.

Degree: Mathematics and Statistics
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Utah was a home away from home for me during my time as an undergrad. While scouting for colleges to attend, I had toured up to 15 different campuses and none had the same feeling that I had with the U. The first time I went to the university, we walked and walked for what seemed like only minutes when in reality we had taken up the entire afternoon. The University of Utah allows its students to learn, grow and prosper with many different clubs, activities, and open facilities. So you can become the best doctor, mathematician or business person that you would like to see in the future.

Degree: Drama and Dramatics/Theatre Arts, General
Graduation Year: 2015

I received an amazing education at the University of Utah, in part because of the faculty in the Department of Theatre. Although the U of U is a research university, all of my professors were very focused on teaching and were always willing to go above and beyond. Additionally, most professors saw value in incorporating current events and social issues into an arts education. However, the U of U could work on diversity. The majority of faculty is white and cis-gendered.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Utah's Psychology program is outstanding. The professors are knowledgeable and willing to help any student who is dedicated to advancing their academic career. Psychology is an extremely diverse degree. With an engineering degree, you become and engineer, a law degree you become lawyer, etc. With a psychology degree, you can pursue any number of career paths which is both exciting and daunting. This is why I highly recommend you rely on the support services of the U of U Academic Advisors and The Career Services Office. These highly trained professionals in will help accelerate your career after graduation.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Utah had so many different types of programs to get involved with. The professors were absolutely wonderful and so were the advisors. Luckily, I knew exactly what I wanted to do but they were very helpful for my decisions. The school is also very into sports.

Degree: International Law and Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

I loved studying at the University of Utah. The University offered a variety of courses within the different avenues of my degree. I chose to pursue an education with an emphasis in foreign relations and security focusing on political science. Not only was the education courses beneficial. I was able to network with an array of different people from different backgrounds. Many of the people I met at the university have become some of my best friends.

Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2005

The advisor for the Film program did not review what types of classes would be helpful in pursuing a career. Yes, I new that this was a hard field to break into. I feel like the advisor should have directed me to more hands on classes instead of classes that were just about learning vocabulary and different genres. Although I enjoyed most of the classes I took, I was disappointed in the hands on experience. I also believe they should update their class descriptions. I took a class that was supposed to be about women in film. It ended up being a class about women who made films that were emphasizing sexual orientations. Although I have no qualms about lesbians, I did not want to watch a lesbian pornography, which is what I saw a lot of and was required to write about for my grade.

Degree: Mass Communication/Media Studies
Graduation Year: 2011

The University of Utah is a commuter school meaning people go to class then go straight home. Most students grew up in the local area. There are quite a few clubs and activities but if you're not involved and only go to class you might not feel like you're getting the real college experience. The only people who really live on campus in the dorms are freshman, mostly Asian due to recruiting and scholarships attracting them aimed at gaining more diversity. I enjoyed my major (mass communication) where classes are smaller and you have a better chance of getting to know others. In a way it felt like I was going back to high school once in my major because most of the classes weren't that tough. Other majors are tougher. Parking isn't great but there are buses and shuttles that can get you around. Expect to walk a lot. Lots of building construction in recent years including a $45M entrepreneur center that have improved the campus. Overall, I'm satisfied with the experience I had. My degree hasn't had much of an impact on my career it seems but at the same time a bachelor's is the minimum qualification for many jobs.
