"Utah State University offered the type of college experience I was looking for. Smaller class sizes, individual attention, and a beautiful and accessible campus."

"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."

"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."

"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."
