Utah State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (40)
The Elementary Education program at USU prepares you to teacher right after graduation. From the beginning of the classroom there are opportunities to be in the classroom, learning from the home room teacher, and assisting the students. The program teaches philosophies on teaching techniques and you will learn about human development. There are plenty of opportunities to network and build rapport with professors and teachers in the community.
Utah State University provided me the means for me to succeed in, not just in my career, but in life. They have great professors who support your growth in the class. The diversity of classes that you can enroll range from billiards to advanced inorganic chemistry to a myriad of graduate classes. The campus life is sublime, providing so many opportunities to interact with other students such as clubs to join, outdoor activities, recreational centers for a plethora of sports and work outs. The scenery is beautiful and fit in nicely with the new state of the art buildings. The location of USU is just at the mouth of the mountains so you can enjoy what nature as to offer in your backyard. But the best resource USU has is the large library, where most students eat, sleep, and study in. This wonderful library has a mountain of rooms and cubicles/tables for you to spread out and prepare for exams. They have, which seems like an infinite amount of computers to work on. If you don't have a personal laptop, you can rent one as well. I definitely recommend attending Utah State University because not only can you obtain a quality higher education, but you can have fun while doing so.
I had a wonderful experience obtaining a Bachelor's degree that I loved in Environmental Studies from Utah State University. The school is located in beautiful Cache Valley and has many outdoor adventures nearby including hiking, biking, skiing, boating, and fishing. However the location is just a bonus, the school is wonderful. The faculty was great and it is very affordable. I would highly recommend.
I loved my time at Utah State. It was an awesome environment. I felt like the college had lots of activities and programs to reach my potential. It was a safe and enjoyable learning environment. I was also satisfied with their extra services around mental, physical, and emotional health. The teachers in my program were knowledgeable and passionate about the subjects they were teaching. Overall I would recommend Utah State to anyone!
My overall experience at USU was fantastic! But, with that said I have a few MAJOR problems... the first, and biggest problem I have with the USU Accounting program is their upper division Accounting classes are taught by a man named Rhett Hunt. He's a CPA, and he really understands accounting... only he cannot teach the subject! He's hands down the worst undergraduate professor I had! So, why does USU keep him? I think it's because they are too cheap to hire a Ph.d. that can actually teach the subject.. So if you are thinking about going into accounting, go to another school. BYU down the road is the #1 accounting program in the nation, Weber State, and the University of Utah both have fantastic programs as well. But, KEEP AWAY FROM USU ACCOUNTING! I feel that I've got ripped-off in my 3000-4000 level classes taught by this man! I cannot, in good faith, recommend USU Accounting program. The economics program was fantastic, nothing I could say bad about it.
I love my experience at USU. It is greatly diversified, giving a huge variety of things to do, as well as ways to learn about other cultures. My academic journey has also progressed a lot, as I learn hands on and with a purpose. I am able to bring my education into the work world, setting me ahead in my future career.
Utah State University was a great school and their online program for a degree in Family Life Studies was educational and convenient. It was nice to be able to take all the necessary classes online since I was not near the campus and couldn't uproot my family to continue my education. The professors at USU were great to work with and were very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. Also the advisors were very educated and there to help make sure you had the information you needed.
USU was a great school that offered a variety of programs that met my needs as a distance learning student. They were also the most reasonable price wise for the type of degree I was working toward.
Utah State University offers a wonderful program for Landscape Architecture. The faculty are top notch and always spending all of their time helping students succeed and network. The schools advising staff are also exceptional at attending to the needs students have in regards to any issues with courses or registration, making the process seamless so that you as a student may focus on your classes. An education here is invaluable and worth pursuing.
This was a completely online program. Since this program partially specializes in eLearning and online learning their online courses are well developed. You feel a sense of community with each class you take and never feel like you are alone. Most of every learning theory, recourse, technology, and strategy I learned I was able to apply directly back into my classroom for my students. My teaching has been greatly enhanced by what was taught in this program. It was affordable and there were almost always small grants helping me out along the way. I also feel like I have more open doors of opportunity. If I do not want to continue as a public educator, I feel like this program has made it possible for me to easily pursue another career and potentially make more money. Instructional designers are in high demand and so this is a hot degree right now. Cooperate and education institutions are constantly hiring and I would get at least 2 emails a week from USU faculty and staff spreading the word of a new job opportunity that was sent their way.
