Male Grad, age 32 - 7/22/2016
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2011
"The U is an excellent college. The U has many things to do when not studying. The Engineering program is world class. It is also ABET accredited thus most major companies will hire you out of school. The other colleges at the U are also fantastic. The sports teams at the U are also renowned nationwide."

"I wish I would have transferred to the University of Utah sooner! In my first semester at the U, I immediately felt more welcome and "at home," then I did when I attended a different institution in Utah County. I believe this welcoming feeling came from the more diverse population and thus, more open-minded and welcoming spirit. Not only were people generally warmer and more diverse, professors generally taught classes in a way that seemed relevant to everyday life and they were always willing to help and answer questions or give much needed guidance. Not only were the professors and other students wonderful, but so was advising and administrative staff. If I had a question regarding transcripts, finals periods, financial services, etc., I could almost find the answer on the school's website. If I couldn't find the answer online, I could always talk to someone either on the phone or in person on campus; these exchanges were always friendly, helpful and further instilled my love for the U. Finally, the advisors on campus were great as well. Whether it was my first advisor to help point me in the direction of a major, my Sociology advisor or the career advisors, I felt they truly had my best interests at heart and that they wanted to see me succeed (rather than just trying to sell me on the school and trying to get me to spend more money there). They operated as advisors; not pushy sales people. To sum up, my experience at the U was wonderful and I wish I could get my desired Masters degree from there. However, as I attend a school in the Ogden area, I will think well of the U and probably miss everything that made it the wonderful school it is."

Degree: Environmental Science

"When I reflect upon my time at the University of Utah, my heart is flooded with positive memories and feelings of accomplishment. In only five years I was able to complete two Bachelor's degrees, one in Environmental and Sustainability Studies within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and one in Urban Ecology within the College of Architecture and Planning. I was dedicated to achieving impressive marks, motivated to be heavily involved with my courses, and integrated into the college campus as a whole. Both of my departments made it easy and attractive to get involved in student groups, peer advising seminars, and events tailored to academic and professional success. I owe a great deal of my undergraduate success to my program advisor for Environmental and Sustainability Studies, J.W.  J. was available to offer guidance whenever I needed assistance, and she never failed to make me feel more confident and secure on my path. J. was also the faculty mentor for the Sustainability Leadership Committee of which I was apart of during my senior year. This group was responsible for helping to connect faculty, administration, and students in order to create a more vibrant campus experience. By getting involved in various student groups and taking advantage of the multitude of opportunities at the University of Utah, I was able to gain important life skills that extend beyond education. After completing my undergraduate career at the University of Utah, I can look into the world with confidence and motivation to make lasting positive change. I am equipped with a top-notch education, have the support of my academic community backing me, and have been introduced to a bank of further opportunities via the college career center. I would highly recommend either of the programs I graduated from to any individuals who have an inkling to challenge and build their intellect. As I look forward to graduate school, I am excited to share my memories and skill set that I polished in my undergraduate career, and I know that I will continue to harness important tools as I move forward."

"The University of Utah has many talented and accomplished professors. For a master's program, you get to work with some of the top scholars of a particular field. Also, the University is close to several extra-curricular activities (skiing, hiking, boating) which is great for when you are not studying."

"The University of Utah has a lot of great resources and is in a beautiful setting. It seems there is always a construction project on campus improving the facilities for students to use. I'm incredibly happy with the quality of the education I received at the University of Utah and the many opportunities that education has provided."

"I'm proud to have the University of Utah as my alma mater. I graduated in journalism, and our daily student newspaper always wins awards from the Society of Professional Journalists. The medical and nursing schools are also top notch, and an extremely good value. It's location is beautiful, overlooking the valley and only a few minutes from the mountains. I enjoyed my professors, and learned much from my classmates as well."
