I got an honors degree in international studies and political science. My experience at the U was worth it because of Center for Ethnic Students Affairs, Hinckley Institute of Politics and study abroad experiences. However, due to my interest in food politics, I would definitely choose Westminster College where I am getting my masters at.

If I had anything to complain about it would be parking and safety.
The parking at the school has been terrible for years. I do know they recently built a parking garage but there is minimal parking and the cost for a pass is astronomical. I do appreciate the free use of public transportation but some times it's not an option.

Safety has come into question recently because of the death of a student. However, this has been a concern for me for years because many women were sexually assaulted in the stadium parking in broad daylight. The UofU needs to take bigger steps in making their students safer.
