    Great for these types of students

    All types! I've met kids from freshman orientation who are sporty, scientific, mathematical, and musical. It's fit for all types of students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go visit the campus! Your deciding moment will be to walk on that campus. Then sign up for Freshman Orientation, they will then tell you all you need to know and get you signed up for classes right then and there and tell you how to do it in the future.

    Bang for the buck

    Might I say, that you are going to get the best teaching out of this school. They have fantastic professors who (at Freshman Orientation) give you their phone numbers and e-mails so that you can talk with them and settle any problems you may be having.

    Will enjoy being here

    They have two different kinds of housing for different kinds of people. What ever your needs are, they have the housing for it and they have payment plans. If you have any questions, the housing staff are always ready to answer your questions.

    Will learn a lot

    The teachers and ambassadors know what they are talking about. I've never been in a place where everyone knows everything about how to survive. No one has been left in the dark.

    Great for these types of students

    Weber is great for all sorts of people. I've seen high school kids and 60+ year olds in my classes. The majority of people on campus are commuters, but they do have on-campus housing options. Weber is great for those who want to learn but don't have a lot to spend. It is definitely not a party school, though; no drugs and alcohol allowed on campus, and you will actually learn something.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved. It's the only way to have fun. They have a club for EVERYTHING. From ballroom to anime to martial arts and beyond, there's nothing that can't entertain you on campus. Also, get to know your professors. I recommend dropping by their offices in the first three weeks of class, at least those you plan to work hard for. They're bored during that time anyways, and it'll make you stand out to go say hello and try to get a feel for their class.

    Bang for the buck

    Weber is amazing at the price. Being a public school, tuition is only about $5,000 a year. For that, you get classes, access to the three-story library and computer terminals all over campus, a free UTA bus pass good for bus, Frontrunner, TRAX, and anything else UTA, access to the school shuttle, and all of the rockin' activities the school offers. I don't know how they do so much on such funds, but Weber definitely packs a powerful bang for your buck.

    Am enjoying being here

    They have a TON of on campus activities, including dances, parties, a bowling alley, pool hall, movie theater, plays, bands, and countless other performances. Not only that, but the people are really nice. They're quiet at the beginning of the semester, focusing on their studies. But once everyone gets into the swing of things, you can constantly find people scattered around campus just relaxing and chatting.

    Am learning a lot

    Unlike a lot of the big name universities, the teachers are actually here, teaching the courses--not some student teacher. They care about their subjects with a passion, which is why they do it. That passion transfers to the students. I never dreamed I would learn as much as I have at Weber, and I am forever indebted to the teachers here.

    I looked over the in-state and out-of-state tuition for Weber I added the totals up for 1 year and then multiplied it by 4 to see what my total cost would be and it was cheaper than the others schools i was loking at. (when adding up the tuition cost i used the highest amount that they say might be charged)

    Will enjoy being here

    I know I will enjoy being at Weber because I have been to the campus several times before, and the campus is beautiful.

    Will learn a lot

    I am hoping I will learn a lot at Weber because when I went on ratemyprofessors.com I read excellent reviews on my possible professors for my major!

    Weber State is one of the most inexpensive schools both in Utah and nationwide, but the quality of living is still very great.

    What to do for fun

    There are always games, dances, and activities that are posted all over the campus that any student can attend.

    Food and Dining

    I don't have a meal plan through Weber State University.

    Dorm Life

    I didn't live on campus, but all of my friends that did really loved it. Weber State just installed a new dorm building so the quality is very nice.

    Academic Rigor

    In my experience, all of my teachers hold a very high standard to each of their students. Most teachers require at least a 93% for an A with a majority of the grade being based on tests alone.

    Tips for prospective students

    For anyone that is looking at becoming a student at Weber State University, I highly recommend it. The class sizes and cost make the college a great choice.

    In three sentences

    Weber State is a decent school with great class sizes and likable teachers. In my experience, the teachers are personable enough to work with students and the small class sizes make that possible. Although the school is inexpensive, I wouldn't rate my education as cheap because the quality of my learning experience has been above average.

    Great for these types of students

    There are many international/foreign exchange students who attend Weber State, and diversity is one of the most upheld values. Needless to say, it's a wide spectrum of Great for these types of students. But if you are looking for a fine mix between tight-knit classes and a medium-sized campus with something for everybody, then Weber State is for you. It's very inexpensive in comparison to other universities, so a tight-budget student will excel here. But Weber State is mainly known for two departments - nursing and drama. Nursing is the most popular degree on campus, and Weber State's drama department is award-winning. Prospective nurses, medical students and those interested in theater would do well at Weber State.

    Tips for prospective students

    1) Talk to people! I can't stress how much easier and better a class is when you have a friend with you the entire semester through. This isn't high school - you'll be going to class with people of all ages. Everybody is a lot nicer. 2) Get involved in at least one organization. You won't regret it. I joined the Chinese Club and I'm not even Chinese, and nonetheless I've had a great time and learned quite a bit about the culture. 3) Keep a planner. Weber State issues you one during orientation, and organization is a vital key to earning good grades. 4) Keep up in class! The professors rarely accept late work, and expect a lot more out of you than the high school teachers did. 5) Don't sweat it and be persistent. The first day of college can be scary, and getting a bad grade on an exam can be especially discouraging. My English professor once told me that 2/3rds of students don't go on to graduate with a Bachelor's Degree. Do you have what it takes to be in the 1/3rd that do? You hold the ball.

    Bang for the buck

    Full-time tuition at Weber State is more-or-less $1,900 a semester. The inexpensiveness of Weber State had a big part in my decision to enroll. It's well worth the money. I would've spent a lot more on my Associate's Degree had I gone somewhere else.

    Am enjoying being here

    There seems to be a few activities going on every week. Weber State invests a lot of money in extracurricular endeavors, such as sports, clubs and parties. Football games are well advertised and well attended, and Weber State encourages school pride, as well as their school color (purple). You will have a lot of fun here if you are active and outgoing. There is a pool hall and a bowling ally, and my favorite feature is the massive gym with more equipment than I know what to do with. Weber State also has great physical fitness programs you can take part of, and a big climbing wall located inside the gym. Weber State also rents out student-discount sporting equipment of all kinds, including kayaks, mountain bikes and snowboards. You can also buy discount lift tickets to the local ski resorts. I have taken classes from some of the funniest but most intelligent professors. There are some hilarious students who attend Weber State as well. The drama and music department are very busy all year round performing on and off campus. All and all, Weber State invests a lot of money on making your experience as enjoyable as possible, and I've already had a lot more fun than I initially thought.

    Am learning a lot

    Weber State is a prime example of the phrase You get out of it what you put into it. How much you learn depends on how hard you are willing to work and study while attending Weber State. There are certain classes that I've passed without studying much at all, and didn't learn anything due to the easiness of the class. I've learned much more from other classes that took up nearly of all of my concentration to scrape by with a decent grade. But all and all, you can learn as much as you please, but a lot of it depends on how hard you are willing to work rather than which professors you choose. Weber State has a large library that rents out DVDs and videos to take advantage of. Most of the professors want you to pass the class and succeed, but cannot make you learn a lot if you're not willing to study. I feel that I've learned more in a single year at Weber State than I did in all of high school put together.

    Weber is probably the most affordable school around. It lets basically everyone in and gives thousands of scholarships out every year! They also work with you and let you know what's out there. There are ways to get a percentage off of tuition as well! Clubs, index scores, GPA, and more will help pay for your tuition!

    Am enjoying being here

    I love the way the school is set up and the whole environment. It's a beautiful campus and I love going to Weber. I currently live at home and I was given a free bus pass from Weber so I ride the buses for free to and from Weber. They also have a front runner that can take students from other cities to Ogden and they have a bus that will run them straight up to Weber State University. It's just a very convenient school for everyone.

    Am learning a lot

    I love the teachers here! They really try and reach out to the students and help them with what they need and beyond. By them caring and helping me out with problems or questions I have, I have learned a lot more than I expected I would. It's easy to email the teacher as all of your teachers emails are given to you. It's easy to know what assignments are due because the teachers are very clear and they give you an organized syllabus.

    Great for these types of students

    It's a great school for anyone and everyone. There are many different classes and clubs, you can even make your own clubs. There are lots of things you can do.

    Tips for prospective students

    Visit campus and find where your classes will be before the semester starts so you don't get lost your first week. Also, finding parking during the semester is very difficult and you need a parking permit. You can get a free UTA Bus Pass with your Wildcard and I found taking the bus to be much more convenient than driving. Also, there are lots of hills and stairs, so be prepared for that.

    Bang for the buck

    When you get accepted to Weber, they automatically sign you up for any academic scholarships you qualify for. I got a scholarship that paid for half of my tuition. I also filled out FAFSA and got a pell grant that paid for the other half of tuition.

    Am enjoying being here

    I really enjoy my classes and the people in them. I also enjoy walking around the campus on nice days and sometimes feed the ducks at the pond. When I first started school here, I knew very few people here, but now I've made friends and see more people I know.

    Am learning a lot

    I really learn a lot in my classes. The teachers teach at a rate that everyone can keep up with, and they teach the material in a way that is easy to understand. If anyone has questions, they can feel free to ask the teachers.

    As my hometown University, it's kind of always been decided where I will go to school. I have explored other options, but I always come back to the affordability and ease of Weber State.

    I think that there is something for everyone at Weber. It's great for people that are looking for a more personal one-on-one educational experience in the classroom.

    Tips for prospective students

    Look for opportunities to get involved! This is a great way to meet people and to enrich your experience at Weber State. Find something you are interested in and go for it!

    Bang for the buck

    I feel like the student fees and tuition seem to go a long way. Each student gets an Ed pass with their enrollment. This pass allows them to travel on the public transportation system (UTA) for free. I have used that a ton. The computer labs at the school are very up to date and are very convenient. There are quite a few activities that go on at the school that are free because of student fees. The buildings that the classrooms are in are really nice and well kept. The campus is beautiful. The education itself is really great! I have learned a lot here. I would say that you do get a bang for your buck.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is fantastic! It really is a beautiful place with a lot of cool things to do and see. There is something for everyone! Weber has teams and clubs for all interests. It also has a lot of cool classes. Last semester, I took a jogging class and a rock climbing class. I had a blast, learned a lot, and made a lot of new friends!

    Am learning a lot

    I absolutely love my classes at Weber State. I have learned so much in the three semesters that I have been here. The class sizes are perfect! I feel like everyone gets the one-on-one time that they need in order to do well in the class. All of my professors know me by name and I feel very comfortable asking them questions. It is definitely a great learning environment.

    Campus Safety

    Emergency buttons are always present next to the buildings, and the lighting is good when you have classes early in the morning, and at night as well.

    What to do for fun

    I recommend sporting events (especially Basketball and Football), which are free if you are a student, with a good time had by all. If you are into the arts, then I suggest attending the theatrical performances put on by the students: they work very hard and do a good job.

    Food and Dining

    Friendly employees make sure the food is served quickly, and I have nearly always been satisfied when I have ate here.

    Dorm Life

    While I do not live in the dorms, I have talked with individuals who do. They appear to enjoy themselves, and are greatly for the opportunities Weber State has to offer.

    Academic Rigor

    A lot of studying will need to be done to do well on tests (up to 10 or more hours). If you struggle in a particular subject, I strongly recommend outside help, or you will fall behind quickly.

    Tips for prospective students

    Arrive to class early: students are usually there 15 minutes before the start of class.

    In three sentences

    This is an excellent school: the teachers are willing to meet with you outside of class time to answer any questions you have related to their subjects. Students are willing to help one another out, which makes class time more pleasant. Everyone on campus is willing to help you if you are lost, which reduces any freshman's worries significantly.

    They have a billards and bowling alley and a bunch of new activitys to get into.

    Food and Dining

    The food looks so good at Weber State. I pack me a snack often, a fruit and a lot of water. The area seems friendly and very tasty. I think they have a their own broiler and grill also, so I've heard.

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus, however would be nice to live in a dorm. All the exciting places people and college life is awesome. I have 2 kids and live in low income. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love my baby's and enjoy being a mom. I am a little jealous tho, because they were smart enough not to have children.

    Academic Rigor

    I enjoy computers and am facinated how they work and am amazed by the programs available. My academic Rigor is to suceed in what I do. I am goal oriented and will strive hard to accomplish my goals. I was on the honor roll as a middle schooler, made my mother very proud.

    Tips for prospective students

    Research ! Research ! Research ! I came in head first. I should have noticed more what was going on. I figured if I had all my verifications,forms, applications, and deadlines met, it would be smooth sailing Boy! was I wrong. I am currently going to class with no books because I cant afford them. My financial aid will not be released for two weeks and I am sad. I will only get back around 300 dollars and my books cost a total of 268. Wow ! so trying to apply for these scholarships as a single mother of 2 and work 6-8 hours a week as a janitor is not the business. so research ! research! research!

    In three sentences

    WeberState University seems like an okay school, for it was my third day yesterday. It has a long uphill incline which makes me sweat like crazy because its on the side of the mountain. I can not park like the cool students in front, the simple reason being, I cannot afford the sixty dollar parking pass. This is my freshman year and seems very exciting. I feel very accomplished in all the things I had to do to get here. I rate it an eight of a ten scale.The school mascot is a wildcat and the colors are purple and white. I have seen a diversity in students and seems like my style. I wasn't aware and am very astonished in how much books and tuition cost. As a single mother of two this is going to be very interesting, but I have the desire to complete!

    I think Weber State has a lot of diversity on campus. I also think that Weber State seems to be open minded to other groups and organizations.

    Anybody!

    Tips for prospective students

    Come see if it's for you beforehand! I thought I would be bummed because I have to commute up to school, but it really is fine living at home. You can still get involved no matter where you live! Anywhere you go though, get involved. College is so much better if you are.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel like the tuition is a good price, especially for being an undergrad. A lot of people want to go to bigger and better schools, but there really is no reason to at first. Weber offers just as good of classes as the U does. It's just personal preference if you want to pay more or not.

    Am enjoying being here

    They really have the most clubs ever. If you like something, they probably have a club for it. Get involved!

    there are a lot of lounges- places with couches and comfy chairs that you can study, or just relax in.

    Bang for the buck

    wsu is great. cheaper tuition, great campus, a lot of newer buildings, not too crowded, and classroom sizes are fairly smaller than most other universities so you really get to know your classmates, as well as the professor. i feel like i am getting my money's worth- and more.

    What to do for fun

    bowling, billiards, football and basketball games, many social dances and fun concerts.

    Food and Dining

    there isn't a lot of variety, but what they do have is good. there is a university grill-type place that serves hamburgers and stuff, and there is also a hogi yogi/teriyaki stix.

    Dorm Life

    campus life is wonderful. i highly recommend university village. great atmosphere, nice apartment style dorms, and right across the street from free shuttle transportation to and from school! so you won't have to spend much money on gas.

    Academic Rigor

    it depends on the classes you take, but i would say some classes are harder than others. that's an obvious statement there, but it's true. it's useful to check ratemyprofessor.com before you sign up for classes to make sure you have challenging, yet knowledgeable professors that teach great classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    apply for scholarships early. not like you'll have a problem getting them anyways, but it's good to get applications done early than to forget them.

    They have a new thing called the purple code which will send a text message and email right to your phone if there is any kind of emergency on campus. They used it once last year when we had a terrible wind storm. They informed all the students to stay inside and cancelled all classes. It was very effective.

    Great for these types of students

    This university is great for the student that want an amazing college experience and a great hands on education.

    Bang for the buck

    Weber State is very well priced. I can't believe that I can get an amazing education on the price they charge. Also, you get access to the gym, pool, bowling alley, and a UTA bus pass which allows you to ride the Frontrunner to salt lake city for free!

    What to do for fun

    The different clubs and student groups are always holding fun get-togethers. At the beginning of each semester they have a foam party. The foam party a stomp with the whole area covered in foam bubbles. It's pretty fantastic!

    The Union has a lot of options for food. Anything you might want they serve and it taste like real food.

    Campus Safety

    Great! Weber is well lit and well patrolled by campus security. They also have little emergency posts (not sure what the actual name for these are), all over campus on the off chance that something happens when you walk alone. You hit a button and it immediately calls the authority's.

    Great for these types of students

    Self motivated and hard working. I would also recommend it for student athletes. Weber State is committed to getting you a degree first and foremost, and then to helping you with your sport. They really have a lot of programs in place to help you get to where you need to be and get your schoolwork done.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Two words: stairs and hills. You will get some exercise when walking around campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Regardless of whether you're an out-of-state student or an in-state student, Weber is cheap!

    What to do for fun

    Weber is quite literally right up against the mountain so there are lots of trails and hiking paths. It also has skiing/snowboarding activities nearby as well. Shopping is pretty decent and Ogden isn't too far from Salt Lake City which is where most concerts and such are held. Weber usually has things going on during campus as well though.

    Food and Dining

    Food is great on campus but I must admit I was a little disappointed with the food selection/options for the dorm. Breakfast isn't served and neither is lunch on the weekdays. (Weekends is a brunch from 11-2 I believe.) Also healthy options are fairly non-existent in the cafeteria. Where are the fruits and veggies? Where are the drink options other than soda and water?

    Dorm Life

    I live in the newest dorm built that was just finished this summer. Weber is also in the process of building it's last new dorm currently and all on campus housing has been built/renovated in the last ten years. The rooms are pretty big and I was impressed with Weber's green initiative.

    Academic Rigor

    Depends on the classes. My Nutrition class can be difficult on some days and there's a lot of extra studying in order to pass the tests, but I feel challenged without feeling like I'm drowning in schoolwork I don't understand. Be wary of the math however, because it can be a pain if you have to start at the bottom and work your way up.

    Tips for prospective students

    Expect to get some exercise walking around the campus - Weber is very hilly and if you are a commuter student parking is a pain. If however, you live in the dorms, it's not bad at all. Also, make sure your math ACT is where it should be (I believe a 21 or 22) or do good on the accuplacer if you have to take it. Weber doesn't kid around with it's math if you have to start at the bottom (950) and make your way up.

    In three sentences

    Weber State is really affordable, especially if you can get in-state tuition like I did. Even though I'm technically an out of state student, I was able to get the Weber Edge Scholarship which pays for the out-of-state portion of tuition (which also isn't bad), and now I have in-state tuition! I love it here and would recommend their hybrid classes, which allow you to get the same credit in half the time - my hybrid classes ends October 17 and I still get 3 credit hours!

    Everyone!

    Tips for prospective students

    Figure out where your classes are before the first day. Explore the campus - find the study spots (The third floor of Elizabeth Hall is wonderful). Take a fun class every semester whether its bowling, tap dancing, or art history. Having a class you are interested in keeps you motivated through the semester.

    Bang for the buck

    The quality of education that I have here at Weber State is so much higher than my friends who attend other nearby colleges. The perks of being a student here are amazing. Bus passes, computer and software discounts, no matter what it is- its better at Weber!

    Am enjoying being here

    My classmates are easy going, my professors are always ready to listen.

    Am learning a lot

    I have loved every class I've taken. Each professor is interesting, easy to listen to and contact.

    I would say that the acedemic rigor at Weber is fairly up there...While it may not be the easiest, it's definately not the hardest either; but, that doesn't mean you won't have to work hard for your grades and your degree...you definatley will have to work hard!

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to take a walk around campus before any classes start! It is a big campus! Also, be sure to check with your advisor(s) to see if your credits will transfer. Depending on your current school, Weber might accept most to all of them. Again, that depends upon the school you are currently attending.

    In three sentences

    This is an absolutely beautiful school! Not only is it located at the foot of the mountains, but they also have a fairly large campus that offers many opportunites to all the students there.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very very safe. It is patrolled often by police and cops. Around the campus are emergency phones just in case something happens. Weber has a program going called Code Purple, which alerts every student, teacher, worker of an emergency situation that would cause harm or anything of that nature.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is any and every kind of club that you could want here at Weber. If there isn't one that fits you, you can easily make one of your own with your friends.

    What to do for fun

    Like I have said before there is always something going on at the campus. If you aren't into what is going on at the campus there are plenty of things to do off campus and not far away. Behind Weber is many trails to go hiking, golf course, and parks. There is a lake nearby to go swimming, or boating. Also a few ski resorts to go skiing or snowboarding and during the summer you can go mountain biking. For the thrill seekers we have skydiving or indoor skydiving, indoor surfing, and rock climbing. So whatever you are into you can for sure find it.

    Food and Dining

    On campus they have a really good pizza place. Of campus they have everything that you would want, sushi, Greek, Indian, Italian, Chinese, and Thai.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in the dorms, so my konwledge is a little ristiricted. However I will still suggest to you that you get attive in the activities around campus. Join a club, do something so that you can get to know people. Be interesting by being interested.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers want to prepare you in your field of study, therefore they are going to give you the practice that you need in order to thrive in the job place. It gets pretty difficult even when you study. So if you are coming from a high school, be prepared to study and not be able to go out every night to party. This is a good school because it challenges you.

    Tips for prospective students

    One tip I wish I had known before coming here is take chemistry somewhere else. I have to take 2 years of it for my major and frankly the chemistry teachers don't know how to teach. They know what they are teaching but as far as communicating it to you they are lacking. Another tip is take advantage of the free tutoring. It helped bump my grade up in one class from a B to an A.

    In three sentences

    Weber is a great school. Has a lot of school events like dances, plays, concerts, and sporting events. Teachers are great, everyone I have had have been willing to help you understand what they are teaching.

    Campus safety is awesome. They have emergency towers all over the campus and if you don't feel safe leaving a class you can request a campus officer to walk you wherever you need every time you have that class.

    Greek Life

    You don't really hear a lot about the Greek Life. If you're looking to get into sororities and fraternities this probably isn't the school for you.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are as many clubs and activities as you can think of. You have a hobby? I guarantee there's a club out there for you. They are in abundance and so much fun.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for any student who is coming into college with some credit from high school. Also an awesome school for students pursuing a career in Criminal Justice and Nursing. Most of all it is a great school for the students who are first starting college because it is a little more laid back, it is a good introductory school for the college life.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is not really unusual locations or traditions that I can think of..

    Definitely a good price for education. It is much cheaper then surrounding 4 year universities. It is definitely worth the money!

    Their are so many activities going on all the time. From fairs and walk-throughs to intramural sports and recreational clubs there is always something to do at Weber.

    Food and Dining

    They have so many options for food. Most of it is pretty good. You, as usual, come across the unsavory food, but only once in awhile. For the most part they have a good variety.

    Dorm Life

    I never lived in the dorms but I heard they are pretty goo.

    Academic Rigor

    Their classes definitely seem easier than I was told college was supposed to be. Maybe my teachers in high school just over prepared me. I would definitely get as far as you can going to Weber, Associates, Bachelors, whatever you can because their classes are easier and cheaper.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you already have credits from high school definitely go to Weber. They take every college credit acquired in high school, unlike other universities. Their classes seem to be easier then other universities. The classes are small and student friendly.

    It's a great school for the price. It's really easy to get generals done. However, it's not necessarily a good school for higher degrees.

    Food and Dining

    The student union building has a lot a good choices when it comes to food. Other than the normal burger and subway type options, the Wildcat room provides a really nice buffet type lunch with a nice, classy, and chef prepared meal option instead of the usual fast food option.

    Academic Rigor

    I think that it depends on the courses you take and the effort you put into them. I personally have never worked so hard for an A in my life. I don't know much about other departments, but I do know that the science department does a good job at making sure you keep busy.

    Campus Safety

    Code purple is Weber's emergency alert system. If there is a problem on campus code purple will send you a text, email and voice message to inform you of what is going on. Whether classes are being canceled or students are asked to remain indoors or avoid a certain area, students are quickly alerted to the emergency.

    Greek Life

    If you are looking for a sorority or frat house Weber is not the place for you. There are a few houses but they are very small compared to what you see normally.

    Clubs and Activities

    The first few weeks of school students are bombarded with club and activities tables set up all over campus. It is impossible not to get hooked into a group when there are so many choices and friendly people to meet.

    Great for these types of students

    Weber is great for students who have many different interests. Classes cover a wide variety of programs and topics. The undecided student should definitely give Weber a try so they can explore different career choices without wasting time and money.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The schools bell tower stands tall over the campus. You can't help but notice it, especially at the turn of a new hour. It makes a great hang out spot and is so unique.

    Bang for the buck

    I chose Weber because the cost of tuition was one of the lowest in the area and they offered me the most scholarship money. If you want a quality college for less money Weber is the best around.

    What to do for fun

    Weber always has activities going on for students. The parties are great and tastey food is always served. Weber is also nearby several of Ogden's hot spots like the mall, 25th street and the Junction/Solomon Center. Other surrounding Universities also host great parties and are always welcoming when Weber students feel like stopping by. It is an awesome way to make new friends.

    Food and Dining

    Weber has several food places on campus and a convenience store. They have really great fresh items to choose from so you are not stuck with ramen noodles all the time. The Lotza area is my favorite.

    Dorm Life

    Weber has housing at University Village. I do not personally live in the dorms but the little community always looks great and is a safe place for college students to stay. Several options are available for housing.

    Academic Rigor

    So far I have been doing general classes. Some have been great while others have been a bore fest. Most classes are lecture style with some quizzes and tests. I have really loved all my professors. They know what they are talking about and challenge students to do their best.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to take an intro to the University class. I learned great tips for studying and test taking as well as resources I can take advantage of. If you are nervous about college at all, this is a great way to settle in and make new friends.

    In three sentences

    Weber state is great, great, great! I have always lived close by and never given Weber much credit. Now that I am attending, I've been happily surprised by the great campus, faculty and activities.

    This school is challenging. It is highly competitive to get into the Radiology Technology program here.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have a question, try researching the answer because if you email someone at the school for your answer they email you back with a stupid answer that doesn't usually answer your question.

    Weber State is a better school than USU Eastern. Weber State needs to be more organized. I think they could do much better because things are hard to find. I would recommend Weber State.

    Academic Rigor

    I have yet to have a class at Weber State that hasn't tested me as a student, which has allowed me to learn at a greater capacity over the last 3 years.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you register early, you can get into all the classes you want at the times you want them. It's worth staying up until midnight to be able to get your perfect schedule.

    It is a smaller college which means the class sizes are smaller making it easier to communicate with your instructors. There are great programs including nursing and dental hygiene. This school is great for undergraduate studies because it has lower costing tuition.

    Academic Rigor

    My program is difficult, demanding and also offers a lot of autonomy. I'm not sure about the other areas of study, but Nuclear Medicine requires a lot of time.

    Tips for prospective students

    My area of study offers a lot of autonomy, so it's a great fit for me. Sometimes it can be a challenge to get a hold of someone to speak with, most departments prefer e-mail, so be diligent if you want to talk to an actual person. Plan on a full 4 seasons, it gets cold in the winter with lots of snow.

    In three sentences

    Beautiful campus with a lot of different choices for area of study. Friendly people, not too difficult of an admissions process.

    For the outdoor activist there is more than enough to do. Skiing, lakes, hiking, horseback riding. For the sports fan the only major team is the Utah Jazz. Of course there are movies, malls, and amusement parks. A word of caution...if you are coming from a large city this might be a shock for you. The pace of life is slow, often the mall, some pools and local features are closed on Sundays, but this is a great place for studying and getting your education. You can find things to do, but it might not be like home.

    Ogden, where Weber is located is a small city compared to where I'm from. They have usual dining, good food, but due to it's size not as many places as I'm used to.

    The food is fantastic and very convenient. It is located in a very central area and there is quite a variety.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are really nice and new ones were just built not to long ago. It can be difficult getting along with a roommate sometimes, but they can also be your best friends.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are great but you have to put in the effort. They are tough but it is possible to succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's what you make of it! You can be chill and have a blast with your suite mates, or you can be that guy or girl that ruins all the fun...

    Wonderful choices for food and dining, features a Jamba Juice in the student union building with computer lab, Lotza Pizza, Bookstore, Testing Center and other student services.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get everything done early as possible before the semester starts, but even if you cut it close you can still make it in time so long as your FAFSA is in order or other financing. Check out the campus and ask questions, and follow up with your Wildcat mail if your serious.

    In three sentences

    Hometown campus feel with all the amenities needed and a great city for those who want the large town experience. Excellent gym, new structures being built with top of the line technology. Lots of choices for programs, degrees and plenty of extra learning material.

    Dorm Life

    There are very few dorms available at Weber State University, but I've never lived there so I can't say what it's like.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors at Weber State University expect you to take their courses very seriously and do your assigned work.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's best to live near campus. There is also another campus in nearby Layton Utah. Pay attention to the parking rules and regulations, the parking police will catch you if you don't.

    In three sentences

    Weber State University in Ogden, Utah is a great school for those looking to earn a college degree without the high-stress politics associated with other universities. Weber State University is mostly an off-campus school, meaning that most students do not live on campus. There are various activities to do in your free time; from hiking and snowboarding to shopping and eating out.

    Later classes get out when its dark, and sometimes its even advised to bring a flashlight.

    Bang for the buck

    I would like to actually see the 'bang' before i gave it anymore thought.

    What to do for fun

    Take a hike! No, seriously! There are so many places around to just walk around and enjoy the beauty, its refreshing after forgetting to sleep for 36 hours from finals.

    Food and Dining

    Psh, what dining, what food? You're in college, you're most likely running on a jar of peanut butter and top ramen every week.

    Dorm Life

    ? Question mark because I don't live in the dorms, nor do any of my friends. You can find much better and cheaper places around.

    Academic Rigor

    Teachings really aren't A.D.D. and learning disability friendly. Oh and there's the thing with not being able to understand what the teacher is even saying.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tip to survive: if you take early classes, make sure you show up! After a while time weeds out the non-early birds, and teachers become just grateful for the students that do show up! Oh and wear water-proof shoes no matter what! Don't ask, don't worry, just do it! Good luck.

    In three sentences

    Weber State University is one of the cheapest Universities in Utah, but buyer beware; you get what you pay for. The quality of teaching is questionable; many of teachers for 'harder' courses barely speak English with seriously strong accents. Options for academic or disability help is crap.

    Campus Safety

    Campus Police patrol 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year (366 if it's a leap year). They have the same jurisdiction as any other police officer which means they can arrest and charge students who have committed crimes. Campus Police dispatchers are always available and make that known to students. If they ever feel uncomfortable on a dark night, students may call Campus Police to request an officer walk them to their vehicle. Weber also has lots of Safety Stands around campus. They are illuminated by a blue light. When the red button is pushed, students are automatically connected to Campus Police. Again, someone always answers promptly and with care and concern. The entire campus is lit very well. There are few, if any, blind spots. Never have I ever not felt safe on campus. Even when I have been at the library all night and need to walk back to my dorm late at night, I am never afraid. I know that there will be a Safety Stand near me.

    Greek Life

    Weber State does not have the traditional Greek Life that larger universities have. Instead, Greek Life here consists of 2 sororities and 2 fraternities that focus on their commitment to community service and giving back. These are exclusive memberships that stress a sense of family in one another. If you get the chance, go Greek!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Homecoming is always a blast! The annual tradition kicks off with the hike to Mount Ogden. This scenic point offers dynamic views for miles around. The air is still pretty warm but offers the nice fall breeze. The leaves are barely turning, so this is the last chance to get some greenery in your life. The following week is filled with activities planned by the Weber State University Student Association, or WSUSA, and they never disappoint. It is also during this week that the giant W is lit on the side of the mountain. Truly a sight to see. The homecoming game is played with the homecoming dance to follow. At midnight, everyone proceeds from the dance to the bell tower where couples kiss to become true Wildcats. It's a cute and sweet evening that is completed with fireworks.

    Bang for the buck

    Most students are residents of Utah, so tuition is bare-bones cheap. In fact, Weber State has been ranked as one of the best bang for your buck universities (it's true - check out the Princeton Review for more). Even if you're out-of-state, you will most likely qualify for the WeberEdge scholarship, which gives you in-state tuition. Visit the Western Undergrad Exchange website to see if you qualify for WUE, which is one and a half times the in-state tuition. Regardless, you'll get a quality education in a remarkable place. Your experience here is what you make it.

    What to do for fun

    Ogden is the ultimate outdoor town. There are hotsprings, camping grounds, hiking trails, and snow resorts nearby. The snow is the purest! Skiing, snowboarding, or just fooling around make for a fun day. The hotsprings are nice on summer nights, and camping is sure to provide you with memories for years to come. Star-gazing up 12th Street Canyon makes for a romantic night.

    Food and Dining

    You'll find a great variety of food at Weber State, from the food court to FoodonDemand at Wildcat Village dorms. There's pizza and pasta, Mexican, Asian, sandwiches, and hamburgers in addition to freshly packed items in the QuickZone convenience store. If you're in the mood for upscale dining, the Wildcat room offers your order made right in front of you! This is a buffet style restaurant with a set daily menu and unlimited salad and dessert bar. For lighter fare, there is a Jamba Juice and Starbucks as well.

    Dorm Life

    ResLife at Weber State is phenomenal! Wildcat Village provides a sense of community in this co-ed dorm. Meal plans are required at this village, but that's fine considering the food is cooked to your order. RA's do their best to make you feel at home since the dorms are you home away from home. What's best is that many times, people are out and about, making it rather easy to make friends. Proximity to campus is close - only a 10 minute walk to the central part of campus. The gym and library are even closer! A sand volleyball court, gas grills, outdoor seating, a fire pit, and luscious grassy areas make this dorm fantastic! University village is a little farther, but not to worry, there are shuttles that run from the wee hours of the morning until late at night, so the commute to campus takes 7 minutes. These apartment-style rooms offer a kitchen and living area in addition to 4 single rooms within the unit.

    Academic Rigor

    Weber is no Harvard or Yale elite university, but what it lacks in name recognition, it makes up for in humble teachers and useful coursework. You won't have pretentious teachers (okay, maybe one or two, but what school doesn't have 'em?) but that's not to say they don't know their stuff. Most have Masters degrees or Doctorates and have been in the teaching game for awhile. They will show you what you need to learn in the course and help you understand it. And just because Weber is a small university in Utah does not mean course loads aren't as heavy anywhere else. Some professors pile on 60-page readings a night on top of essays due every class. Some professors work through material very quickly, so you need to take great notes. Some professors give extremely difficult tests that make you want to pull your hair out. All in all, it's worth it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do come here for the small class sizes. Professors can get to know you, making recommendation letters and connections that much easier to obtain. You, in turn, get to know your professor and get more out of your courses by having that in with them. Ogden also plays host to phenomenal winters, gorgeous sunsets, and fun winter activities. Snow is like no where else, and camping in the summers makes for unforgettable memories. Hiking, biking, trail running, exploring - do it all in Ogden! Weber State is a commuter school, so campus clears out by 2 in the afternoon. Nearby apartments are cheaper than dorms. Get to campus by getting a $20 EdPass which is the transit pass that gets you unlimited public transportation in Utah for the year! It's a great deal. You can take the bus to FrontRunner Station in Ogden, get off in Salt Lake City, and ride the tracks for hours. Weekends in Salt Lake offer the big city feel Ogden does not have.

    In three sentences

    Weber State provides a unparalleled college feel because of its mix of a great outdoor environment, small class sizes with individualized attention, fresh air, and unique clubs and organizations. Nothing compares to attending classes in the morning and then snowboarding in the afternoon with time for friends and studying at the residence halls later in the evening. Weber State Weber State GREAT GREAT GREAT!

    I have never felt unsafe or threatened on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am just starting to get involved in clubs. They seem to be great and there are a lot of options.

    Great for these types of students

    It is mostly a commuter college. The social life isn't there. It's great for students who aren't looking to make friends but wanting to work hard.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I can't think of any. I'm only a freshman so I'm fairly new to everything there.

    Bang for the buck

    The main reason I go to Weber is because it is cheap. I've compared tuition rates and WSU has the lowest in the state. Like I said earlier, I think the professors (or at least my professors are great.) Overall you get the most bang for your buck.

    What to do for fun

    I have joined some clubs. There are a lot of hiking trails right next to the University. Study.

    Academic Rigor

    Average. It's what you make it. I'm enrolled in Gen Ed classes and it's pretty simple

    Tips for prospective students

    Registering for school was a nightmare. Try and get that done as early as possible. Having taken classes at other Weber State campuses, I feel like the main campus is the best. Don't buy a parking pass. It's not worth the money, you won't find a spot to park.

    In three sentences

    Overall, a pretty good university. I'm a student because of how close it is to where I live and it's easy to get accepted in. It is not my first choice though. The campus is beautiful and the professors are all very nice.

    Tips for prospective students

    Know where all of your classes are ahead of time, it helps. Make it a habit to be on time to every class or else it is really hard to keep going. Use time wisely as in study time and break big projects into smaller pieces. College is great, you just need to be dedicated.

    They are seriously hundreds of clubs at Weber State University for you to choose from! They range from sports, to service, to activities. At the beginning of the year, there is a giant club introduction event that occurs in the quad! This will introduce you to a whole bunch of the different clubs offered.

    Wide range of food and restaurant choices. The food is good and actually isn't too pricey. The only thing that seems to be a bit pricey are their salads.

    Take AP and CE credit classes! Not only do they save you time and money but they also prepare you well for your college courses. I worried that I wouldn't be ready for the rigor of my college courses, but I feel that my previous AP and CE courses have prepared me really well.

    There are a lot of things to do on campus. There is a gym, bowling, and billiards. They also have events going on campus and they will post them around campus.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Weber State University isn't close to fine dining but it is good enough just to have a quick bite to eat. I just find that the food is a little over priced. The Jamba Juice and Starbucks is good though.

    Dorm Life

    I haven't been in the dorms while going to Weber State University but I have stayed at the dorms for three consecutive summers for about six weeks. The dorms are nice and comfortable. My last summer in the dorms it was two people in a room. One bathroom and shower.

    Academic Rigor

    I would say that I haven't taken any classes where it was too hard for me. You do have to study for exams, but nothing to the extreme where it's really hard.

    Tips for prospective students

    Weber State University classes range from about twenty to thirty students. The professors are willing to help you. It's a really comfortable and casual place to study and learn.

    What to do for fun

    There are clubs on campus that I am involved in. I enjoy visiting the Union building and finding out if there are activities going on there.

    Food and Dining

    The dining area in the Union Building has a variety of options for eating. It is good tasting and they get it cooked in a relatively fast time frame. However, it is kind of expensive to eat there.

    Dorm Life

    They dorms are fairly new and very close to campus. They have plenty of activities and opportunities to get to know new people.

    Academic Rigor

    There are several classes that will push you to your limits but the teacher are very willing to work one on one with you. Many of the generals classes help their students learn about other areas on campus that has tutoring or help available. The tuition and living expense is not too bad for a poor college student.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise the new students to take the orientation course on campus. It will help you know all your options of help you can receive on campus.

    In three sentences

    This campus is so beautiful on top of a hill overlooking the city. There is a friendly environment and great campus life. The programs here are tough to get into but they accredited and very helpful in giving you the knowledge you desire.
