"First off, I am aware I'm a bit of an anomaly. I could not dislike USU more due to my experiences with them. I had to do a medical withdrawal in 2013, but due to a professor not submitting documentation of any class performance to the registrar, they put me on academic probation. Medical issues abated in 2019, so I met with a disciplinary board (literally 12 people) to plead why I should be able to return. After explaining it was a singular professor in the Ag department that this issue stemmed from, they allowed me to come back under a 2 page disciplinary contract. Again. Not my fault. I tried to prompt the professor to submit that via email, calls, calls to his private business, roommates visiting him (I was in a hospital bed.) No acceptance of responsibility on their end, an apology for the misunderstanding, or failing that, even just letting me come back with a clean slate due to a staff mistake from USU. One of the requirements was to meet with a student counselor. He was an hour late for my first 2 appointments. Yep. I was done with their staff after that. Some of the professors are awesome, I had great experiences with the German department, as well as the Social Studies professors. Unfortunately most of my experience was negative. There was very much the government "Eh. Good 'nough." attitude. The city of Logan was awesome, I stayed there 5 years before finally moving. It struck a really good balance of big enough for many amenities, without being massive like SLC. I could not have been more displeased with USU and their staff however. I wasted several years pursuing a degree before realizing my money and effort was better used elsewhere."

"Utah State has been an amazing experience for me. There are three universities in my state that provide a program for civil engineering. Upon researching the three schools, I thought that Utah State University would be the right fit for me, and I don't regret it at all. Logan is a beautiful city and Utah State provided the atmosphere that I wanted. I made some awesome friends there. The program gave me hands-on experience. Utah State engineering graduates have a great reputation for being very will prepared for the work force and I feel that my education has been exceptional."

"Overall I had a great experience at Utah State University. It's located in Logan, UT, which is a relatively small community in northern Utah (about 40,000 people). Despite the size, the University has quality faculty and decent student resources for the most part. In my case, I spent most of my time in the business school, which had received a significant financial donation, which definitely helped increase the academic quality. The students, professors, and overall environment were very positive and professional. The one thing I wished the business school there would have done better at though is career services and career guidance. I didn't feel like, at the time at least, the career services were as robust as they could have been. Hopefully that's changed now - since I left they've received additional donations and have even added on a new, state-of-the-art building. But I ended up with a good job at a great company, and being a grad from Utah State didn't hold me back from that."

"For those seeking a Climate Master's Program at Utah State University, I would highly recommend seeking out the climate-related professors in the Watershed Department at Utah State University (USU). The professors in the Climate Program at USU tend to be harder to get along with, and not as willing to see the unique perspectives of other students, especially those with special needs. However, the Watershed Department at USU, has very caring professors that want the best for their students, and was one of the departments that won more awards this past school year. The professors in the Watershed Department at USU have a very high level of understanding in their field and care most deeply about the student. During my time at USU, there were several instances in which Climate Professors made statements against students that we belittling, condescending, or would cause a normal student not to feel completely safe. Professors from the Watershed Department also experienced professors from the Climate Program acting off of aggression towards their students. So, for someone who doesn't do well with an aggressive professor, I would highly recommend seeking out the Climate Professors in the Watershed Department at USU. The Major Professor that I had in the Watershed Department at USU was very caring towards me, other students, and about student needs, and would always reach out to do what was best for the student. The Watershed Department was also very on top of things and very organized with their Graduate Adviser that helped with forms, thesis, and other stuff always on the ball, and also very caring about the students in his program. In general Utah State University is a great community, and you can meet a lot of people and make a lot of friends here. I just highly recommend the Watershed Department, and NOT the Climate Program."

"I graduated from USU with a dual major in Special Education Severe/Profound and Early Childhood Disabilities (Birth-5). I loved my time at USU. For the most part I felt that my professors were involved, committed, and very knowledgable in their subjects. I enjoyed going to class and learning. I felt that tuition was fairly priced. The campus is BEAUTIFUL and still my favorite place to go walk around! I only had two professors in my time at USU that I struggled to understand or get along with. My advisor was very helpful, though I had heard other students feel like that didn't have the same experience with her. Overall, I loved my time in the program. There is a lot of off-campus housing within walking distance to campus which made it easy to walk to class everyday without paying for a parking pass. I would recommend looking into the clubs and groups located at USU, there are SO many. They have renovated a lot of campus since I graduated to make it more accessible to students to walk all around campus. There are always fun events going on all over campus as well. There are also so many highly ranked degrees and programs of study available at USU. All of the buildings are well maintained and easy to navigate. They have an on-campus student recreation center that is one of the best gyms I've ever been to. There are so many opportunities at USU, i definitely recommend checking it out!"

"I feel like I received a beautifully well rounded education, especially with a humanities degree from a state school. The professors in the English Department care about your well being and success both during and after your time at school, and are highly approachable. NR Dept as well. I can't speak to other departments. Honors college was great."

"I had a wonderful experience at Utah State University. I transferred there from Snow College and spent three years completing my bachelor's degree. As a transfer student I didn't experience much of their general education requirements, but I had a fantastic experience working with the history department faculty. They are a very diverse and intelligent group of scholars and I felt the majority of my teachers cared about me and my success as a student. I learned and grew immensely as a result of my time studying at this university. It is a beautiful campus with a lot of great people and I felt like I received very good value education for the cost."

"My experience with Utah State University was fantastic. I changed my major a few semesters in, and my experience with both of the advisers I had were positive ones, especially with the adviser for the Family Life Studies degree. Sarah is always willing to help and answer questions. She truly cares about the students and is always happy to help! Though I had some professors I did not particularly love, most of my professors were helpful and cared about my success as a student."

"I loved the Communicative Disorders Department. The professors were friendly, always willing to talk. Most of my professors knew me by name. The environment was open for discussion and diverse opinions. Communicative Disorders is an undergraduate degree to become a Speech-Language Pathologist, which is a Master's program. The Master's programs are extremely competitive. However, the Professors kept you focused on learning the material and preparing, rather then stressing you out with grades. They are experienced focused and it is an excellent experience."

"Utah State University is a great institution. The campus and surrounding area are gorgeous and the people there are friendly. The faculty and staff truly care about the students and want them to succeed. The teaching at the University, at least in my program, was phenomenal. The teachers care about teaching, not just research. They will make any time you need to help tutor and advise you."

"Utah State University is a great school. I earned my undergraduate degree at the main campus in Logan in 2004 and now I attend their Kaysville campus so I have a lot of experience with the school. I'm grateful for their three year part-time Master of Social Work program. It allows me to complete the degree over a longer period of time, which is imperative as a full time working single mom."

"I highly enjoyed my time at Utah State University. My professors were approachable and there were plenty of opportunities available to receive help if I was struggling. My program was interesting and I enjoyed the subject matter. While I did not end up in a career that "uses" my degree (although I am about to start an MBA program), I learned many valuable skills in dedication and hard work that have translated to every job I have had since graduation. I know these skills will help me be prepared for my graduate program and I know I will be successful because of my time at Utah State. The campus is beautiful, the atmosphere is vibrant and the student body energetic. I would recommend Utah State University to any student."

"My post is on Utah State University. This school presented a great opportunity for me to learn and diversify my learning. To begin I knew that I was interested in history, Portuguese, Spanish, and becoming a teacher. The counselors and professors I worked with in the humanities and language departments were fantastic in guiding and counseling me through the various choices available and what previous students had done in similar scenarios. I honestly felt that I always had a chance to go in and be able to visit at any time and that these professors and counselors would willingly share of their time to help me individually. When I attended I felt that the difficulty level in working through the education, history, and language departments were tough but not to the point of crushing. Additionally I am grateful to the professional help I received as well when I began putting work resumes together and could receive help for this service through the university free of charge to a student! This was a great boon when I attended teacher career days at the university to try and meet future potential employers. In all I am grateful for the time spent at Utah State and highly recommend it to anyone seriously looking into it as a choice for their school!"
