"Utah State University has an exceptional education department. The classes are specifically aimed at preparing pre-service teachers for addressing all the needs of their future students. Teacher candidates are given opportunities for classroom instruction from highly qualified instructors with a wealth of experience behind them. They learn how to form relationships with students, motivate them to want to learn, and guide them using strategies that help them to think critically and acquire the knowledge they will need to be productive, contributing members of society."

"Everyone, including staff, professors, and students, are extremely helpful and supportive. I never thought I would make it to where I am today and Utah State has helped by giving me incredible opportunities and support. I wish the school and surrounding area was a bit more diverse. I am not used to living in a community of 90% Caucasian Mormon families, although it is growing. It's an incredible place to live if you like the outdoors!"

"I absolutely loved USU. The professors are phenomenal and so willing to help you out. I'm especially fond, obviously, of those professors I interacted with in the English department. You can tell they love what they teach. I would recommend USU to anyone, regardless of major."

"Its a pretty small program which is good and bad. You get a lot of one on one attention and the faculty is good about personalizing course work so that it is really beneficial to you. The graduate school is small though so there is hardly any funding and they only offer a few tuition waiver per college. I love living in Logan and I love the personalization of the program!"

"I am a graduate student at Utah State University working toward a master's degree in Education with an emphasis on School Guidance and Counseling. I chose to apply to Utah State University because USU is one of the very few institutions that offers a degree for school counseling and they have multiple off-site campuses that utilize interactive technology that allows people like me who don't live in Logan and have day jobs be able to attend school and work toward a degree. The program has been structured with the demographics of its students in mind. The courses are challenging but doable and the content is very applicable to school counseling. The faculty and staff are very accessible to us students and have been very helpful whenever I have had a question. I do not regret applying to USU at all. It is a great school."

"USU is a great school in general. I liked many of many gen ed classes, but the Technical Writing Emphasis at USU is generally a joke and a waste of your time and money. Most of the instructors I had were rather lazy (doing the bare minimum and not teaching their students much if anything useful in the real world) and the program itself should be deleted because it doesn't prepare most students for a career that will get them out of poverty. (If you are a male going into technical writing you may have better luck than I have had.) Go into teaching or nursing or some direct career path and avoid the humanities altogether if you wish to get an actual full-time, benefited job when you graduate from college. People who graduate in English should go into teaching or prepare to work in retail---those are your real life options. Maybe this program was a bad fit for me personally, but truly this degree doesn't prepare you for anything except student loan debt that you can't pay off because you can seem to find a full-time, decent job that pays more than $10 an hour in the 4 years after you graduate. I remember many of the instructors weren't able to really show us how to much of anything in InDesign or Photoshop or Dreamweaver or ANY of the computer programs we were supposed to learn in this major. The students ended up figuring out how to navigate these programs and show each other how to do tasks in the program."

"USU's online classes and instructors are good. I have no problems with the COMD degree online program. What the school fails to mention is how insanely competitive it is to get into a Speech Therapy Grad School Program. Prepare for and take the GRE first, and if you do good enough on that test to be a highly competitive grad school applicant, THEN take the COMD online courses (and get A's). If you can't get your GRE scores around the 65th percentile then you won't get into ANY grad school programs because they have over 100 applicants and maybe 10 or 15 positions available in most any SLP grad school each and every year. Your grad school application has to be strong in EVERY category in order to have a prayer of getting into graduate school. So unless your state hires lots of Speech Therapy Tech's, I wouldn't bother going back to school for a BS in COMD. A BS in COMD is like a BS in Psychology or Sociology or English----these degrees don't get you anywhere near a good paying job when you finish them."

"The honorable History Professors at Utah State University planned an interface of contents for 2013-2014, which reflected local and global challenges. Ranging from the Atlantic World Trade and the consequent carving up of biotic and abiotic resources across the continents with less regard to indigenous people who had called the other continents homelands; slavery; industrialization and class consciousness; racism; gender issues; pollutions and associated environmental concerns and grassroots movements; geopolitical competitions after the WWII; the Cold War; global warming; Africa's arid soils and tropical resources; the rising of sea level and reductions of surface water and underground aquifers; to current socioecological concern about Cache Valley's severe inversions that reminded Logan residents of their historical responsibility to use buses in winter in order to reduce emission of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere so that they can guarantee more health air; all this wealthy of historical information the discipline of History unfolded in me inspired me to devise my own historical narratives from now on."

"This program is a distance learning program. Instructors teach from campus, and their lectures are broadcast across the state. This allows students to live in over twenty locations, but it also limits the face-to-face contact students have with their instructors."

"The graduate program is definitely more career oriented. From the very get-go you are being connected with professionals and companies from all over the country. Unlike an undergrad program, this program is 40% focused on getting you a job and the rest on real-world academic learning. The professors care deeply about the students and are concerned about their success."

"Although I went into the program with a lot of unanswered questions, the faculty and staff quickly let us know that they were here to help and answer our questions. Not only do they care about the quality of our education, they care about getting us in the right fields, jobs, further education post graduation."
