"Overall I had a great experience at this school. I enjoyed my classes, professors, and the activities on campus. The math department, at least when I was attending was terrible. I had to take my math at another school and transfer it there because it was so bad. Otherwise it was a joyful experience and I miss it now that I am a graduate student at another university."

"This is easily the worst school I've ever been to soley because of the clown running the math department. This is probably the worst school to go to if you have a full time job because all exams are expected to be taken in the school EVEN IF YOU ENROLLED IN A ONLINE COUSE. Working a full time job and having to physically go into the school to test has cause a serious strain on me because of the time restraints i have. Not to mention that if you are lately on any of the exams or homework its 30% off of your grade for that assignment. So they make it difficult to take the test and penalize you severely if you fall behind. they micro manage college students requiring certain scores on test and quizzes prior to moving on and, again PENALIZE YOU WHEN THEY DONT ALLOW YOU TO MOVE ON. Trying to ask for help or understanding for the department lead is like talking to a wall because she more concerned will providing some smart ass response then actually fixing the problem. She is a joke. The whole department is a joke. IF YOU HAVE A FULL TIME JOB DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. i only recommend it if your only "job" is school"

"The Weber State University MSN Nursing program is a waste of time and money. My co-worker started and finished her MSN program through WGU in half the time and money of the Weber program. The Weber program did not even offer a survey or area for suggestions at the end of the program - they knew we all hated it. Do not go to Weber State University for your MSN."

"Weber's MSN program is another version of their BSN. It is juvenile and tedious. Heavy amounts of busy work, fluff, and forced group projects. Heavy criticism and negative feedback. The student is powerless. It is a nightmare. I have spoken with coworkers in the WGU program. No group projects. I would recommend WGU."

"The faculty and staff for the Medical Laboratory Sciences program are beyond amazing. Each and every one of them is not only dedicated to their field of study but also to the students in the program. I received so much advice and guidance during my time there; I really never felt anxious about planning future semesters because I knew they would have my back and help me to choose the best ones for my schedule, even though I also had to balance graduate school requirements!"

"Weber State University is an excellent school! To begin it's campus is beautiful and the facilities are good. The student population is diverse, as is the faculty. Tuition is affordable. Great support system. What I really like most is that the professors really care for their students. They take the time to know their students. They take the time to ensure that their students understand what is being taught and why it is important, as well as how to apply the knowledge in real life. They genuinely want to see their students succeed. I would highly recommend this school."

"I would not trade the experience I had at Weber State University for anything. There is a wonderful diversity of students, and I made life-long friends with people from other countries, people with different life stories, and people that shared my goals. Classroom sizes are smaller than in many universities, which make it very easy to build good relationships with professors. Such relationships lead to great reference letters and research experiences. The faculty in the Child and Family Studies department are wonderful. They are personable, they are excellent teachers, and they care about the futures of their students. I never felt like there was anything they wouldnt do to connect me with the resources needed to explore and prepare for my future. Weber State University is home and I am proud to call it my alma mater. It is one of the greatest options for college there is."

"I truly enjoyed my time at Weber State University! The campus was beautiful and well maintained. I loved that class sizes were small land allowed for more interaction between professors and students. I loved how everything was within walking distance and how it still managed to maintain a college social atmosphere even though it was generally more of a commuter school. The education was top notch and tuition was affordable. I highly recommend this school!"

"The classes felt redundant to those in the Bachelor's program. Heavy on busy work assignments as well as forced group projects. One instructor in particular-actively discouraged independent thought with heavy criticism and continuous negative feedback. I would not recommend their MSN nursing education program. Try WGU."

"This degree program prepared me for a career in the family studies field as well as for graduate school. The upper division courses were set up to allow for students to ask questions openly to professors and receive feedback in a timely manner. Assignments and exams assessed what was taught and learned in the courses. Many courses also had a community engaged learning component allowing for students to apply experiences to real world scenarios. Courses were offered online and on campus although a few of the last semester courses were solely offered on campus and I did not mind this. The campus is right next to the mountains and you can walk from one side of campus to the other in under 15 minutes based on average walking speed."

  • Degree: Automotive Technology
"The program is constantly advertising, that they have 100 percent job placement. Which is incorrect many of the students ended up jobless, or working for places that didn't even require a degree in the first place. At one of my interviews I was offered $35,000 a year, which i considered to be a joke, because I was running my own Electronics repair business that was making that much at the time. Angry at the low $35,000 offer, I applied to an engineering masters program right afterward, which is going to triple my current income. Oh and the $60,000 a year corporate positions that where promised went to the only girl in the class. Who was obviously hired because of her being the only girl in an automotive world, another wards the government was supplementing the company for hiring her on."

"I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to attend Weber State University and to be a graduate from the Radiation Therapy program. From the moment I began inquiring about the program to the very end, the program director Casey Neville, was there to encourage and support us through the program. The instructors are excellent and will stay late to help you with any topic that you do not understand. It is very apparent that they are truly there for the students and to help us succeed. I am very proud to say that I am a graduate from this program."

"Weber State University is a diamond in the roughotel. Located in the cozy mountainside of Ogden Utah, this University offers a unique college experience tailored to each individuals needs. Known as a commuter college, Weber State has relatively few student dorms, due to the fact that most people live off-campus. In doing so they are allowed to take on many other responsibilities such as full time jobs, community volunteer service and cut costs on expensive housing fees. Weber is by far most notable for its dedication to community engaged learning. The university offers numerous classes that force students to become activists in their comminity. It even has a branch of stidentity government dedicated to the cause. I am so grateful for attending Weber state and allowing me the opportunity to help out many local non-profit organizations while working simultaneously on earning my degree"

"Weber State University is great. The professors are very flexible and easy to work with. You are taught by an actual professor instead of a teacher assistant. It is easy to find a class that fits your schedule because they offer the same class at multiple times. Parking is a little difficult, but they do offer a $20 dollar bus pass that can be used for the entire school year. Several buses have routes that go to the college from all over the valley."
