"You have to learn to budget your time. You have to prioritize your time on the material considered the most important to the class. Always plan on assignments taking longer than expected. Do the reading and don't be passive in your education or you'll forget everything."

"College for me was a wonderful experience. As the first in my family to get a higher education, I was able to open more doors than my parents. Recently, the decision to study a certain discipline has been dictated by the market for many people I know. The most important thing I could say to someone going into college or thinking about it is this. If you want to go to an institution to nurture your curiosity, learn technical skills and be mentored by knowledgeable people, all in one place, it may be a good decision. If you think simply going to college will entitle you to a job and higher pay, then you may be disappointed. College is an experience as well as a door to more choices down the road."

"I loved my undergrad experience at the University of Utah. The David Eccle's School of Business has great professors who are passionate about what they teach. There are a ton of extra curricular activities to diverse yourself beyond just classes and you can't beat being 30 minutes away from skiing or snowboarding!"

"The college was great but I did not have a ton of time to get involved with campus groups so my review will be primarily on my degree program. The program has some really great professors involved that have spent a great deal in industry and doing some interesting research. Each year the program has a project class in which you are divided into teams to build a robot that needs to follow certain specifications to achieve that year's mission. These project classes are what set this program apart from not only the other engineerings but other universities. The teams are in charge of all elements of the design process of the robot including: design, manufacturing, electrical components, programming and building. It is a great team experience and I think develops skills for a broad range of tasks in industry and give us the understanding of a bigger picture which at times can be quite crucial. With those things said I was in the first years of the transition to the spiral program and it was a bit unorganized and chaotic at times. I was also very unhappy with several of the professors ability to teach on a level we could really understand. Overall I know I have that paper that can get me into a position in which I now know I can learn just about anything. So yes you come out as a generalist but most of the education needed for a career is given as on the job training."

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2015
"The university of Utah is a great place to go to school and they have a wonderful music program that I really enjoy being a part of. The U of U is really great because you have a lot of room to be creative and decide what you want to do. In the music program I am working with fantastic teachers and fellow students who I respect and care about. The university of Utah, especially the music program, has a great atmosphere that is very supportive and welcoming. I have had an amazing experience for three years and I'm looking forward to my senior year."
