In three sentences
I can't imagine going to school anywhere else in the world. Utah State always has something going on for everyone: introverts, geeks, prospective entrepreneurs, farmers, you name it. The courses are challenging enough, and it is so easy to find something that fits your personality and interests.
Tips for prospective students
Get involved! If you're not involved, you can't possibly be getting the college experience you deserve.
Go to the games. They are one of the best things about going to USU.
Don't mess around with your education. Your teachers are there to help you, and you have plenty of resources available to you. Take advantage of that.
Academic Rigor
This is a hard thing to rate. Within the school itself are a wide variety of colleges, with varying degrees, at varying levels of difficulty. If you keep up with your work, you won't have anything to worry about. But as always, some classes will be harder than others. Be prepared.
Dorm Life
I lived in on-campus dorms my freshman year and loved it! The dorms were a great way to get to know people and form a sort of family away from home. My roommates became my best friends of all time. I lived in the Student Living Center (SLC) which was a bit of a walk from campus, and that was extra frustrating when it snowed. Aside from distance from campus, it was a perfect place to be freshman year.
Food and Dining
There are a million places to eat on campus. The Quadside in the library has the best sandwiches. Luke's Cafe is right off the Quad, and the food there is amazing. There's food within a five minute walk of anywhere you are on campus. Logan, too, is the perfect college town and Main St. is lined with great places to eat.
What to do for fun
Go hiking! (The Wind Caves is a favorite for a lot of people)
Bowling
Sporting events
Ice blocking down Old Main Hill
Long boarding
Head to First Dam (feed the ducks!)
Go skiing/snowboarding up at Beaver
Go to a movie
Swing dancing
Shows (theater, choir, etc.)
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
True Aggie Night is a huge hit. Every full moon (or homecoming week or other special occasions) is our True Aggie Night. To become a true Aggie, you must kiss another true Aggie stop the A right at Old Main.
On Wednesday night at 10:00 during Finals Week, there is a Howl held on the third floor of the library. You literally gather around the middle of the library and howl.
Great for these types of students
Introverts
Farmers
Engineers
Extroverts
People who like planes
People who like underwater basket weaving
Singers
Dancers
People who like business
Innovators
Shy people
Loud people
Campus Safety
I've walked around campus by myself at 2 in the morning and felt completely safe. We have on campus police officers that are readily available. Campus is a really tight knit community, regardless of whether or not you know anyone.

There are so many option for majors, minors, clubs, activities, study session, it's amazing how much you get to choose from and learn about! It brings a lot of perspective to the average student because they are able to interact with people from a vast field of cultures. There are Many sessions and groups for studying and reviewing that it's easier to understand the concepts in classes.
Am enjoying being here
I love Logan! It can be very cold in the winter, but it is so worth it. The mountains, trees and bodies of water are amazing and the school is set on top of a hill so students get a wonderful view of the city and surrounding areas. There are so many opportunities in town, such as ice blocking down Old Main, many restaurants and shopping areas, Aggie ice cream, becoming a True Aggie, events on the Quad or in the TSC, and simply meeting new people Every day. It's crazy cool!
Bang for the buck
Utah State is one of the cheaper schools in Utah, while still being one of the highest in quality. There are many opportunities for scholarships at the beginning of school and then through whichever major you choose.
Tips for prospective students
Apply early and apply for all scholarships you have available! It's always worth the risk.
Bring your warm coats!
Expect to make lots of new friends and have a good experience.
Great for these types of students
Engineering, sciences, music, art, business, education. It's a very well-rounded school.

All of the professors here are amazing! I truly enjoy going to class. They're witty and help you with anything you need help with. The student reviews help out a lot as well. There are always Teacher's Aids to help with any questions you might have. Blackboard also allows the students in the class to communicate; which has been great to help organize study groups for upcoming papers, quizzes, or tests.
Am enjoying being here
Logan is a great place to be! Its a small campus so you can find your way around easily, and its great being in the mountains. There are a lot of things to do and you met a lot of diverse and great people.
Bang for the buck
For the type of education you get, you get a great deal on it. Kids from all over the U.S. praise how great of a deal Utah State is for the education you receive.
Tips for prospective students
My advice: Study early, study often, and take advatage of every study session you can! The reviews are great to go to, but don't forget to be social and have fun!
Great for these types of students
Utah State is great for anyone who loves the outdoors. There is hiking, a ski resort close by and a lot of fun activities every week. There is something always going on, on campus! Hockey games, football, basketball, Utah State is just a fun place to be!

Every Professor I have had so far has just been unbelievable. They all are so passionate about the subject they are teaching and therefore it makes it much more interesting for the students.
Am enjoying being here
I can't even explain how much I love Utah State. It is so much fun and I am receiving such a great education. There are many activities to get the students involved. The USU basketball and football games are the best. It is amazing to see how much school spirit our school has when you go to these games and it is so much fun to be a part of it. The campus is beautiful. I love it because it is not too big, but also not to small either.
Bang for the buck
I am getting every dollars worth that I have spent in going to Utah State.
Tips for prospective students
I live in some apartments down the street from the University campus and across the street from the Spectrum and the Stadium. It is the perfect location because you are still close to the school, and also all of the sporting events are right across the street.
Great for these types of students
Utah State University is a great place if you don't want to get lost in the crowd of a large university. Although it is big here, you always feel like you are important and a part of the school.

I always am learning something new. Whether its in class with the great professors here or even if its just being away from home and even learning from all my fellow students. Utah State really has a great atmosphere for learning.
Am enjoying being here
When I went home for the summer I couldn't wait to come back! Its so fun! The people here are so great. I have never met anyone who is mean. Its really easy to find your way around. There are a lot of fun activities always going on! I love meeting all the people that I have met!
Bang for the buck
I believe that Utah State is one of the cheapest University's in Utah. With all the raises with school prices Utah State only went up 200 dollars. The books well those aren't so cheap but there are LOTS of other resources to get books. Housing is pretty easy to find. There are LOTS of apartments to choose from and they are pretty cheap. On Campus housing is pretty great for the first year.
Tips for prospective students
This is a great school and I would recommend it to anyone. It has such a great atmosphere and the people and professors are great. There is so much to do up here to get involved. If you do decide to attend Utah State I would live on campus your first year and just get acquainted with the area.
Great for these types of students
Utah State is really actually great for all kinds of students. There are lots of resources if you struggle in something and its free! Like there is math tutoring and English help and there are these things that are so wonderful called SI's and they are basically a study group and they are way nice and just about every class has them!

All the classes I have enrolled in, and am currently enrolled in have been very helpful to my learning. With maybe one or two exceptions, my professors have been great: very willing to help and knowledgeable about the material they are teaching.
Am enjoying being here
Dorm life on campus is great! I live in the Living Learning Center which is a very nice place to live. The RA's are great and the housing accommodations are fantastic! There is always something to do on campus and in the community so I always have something to do!
Bang for the buck
As an out-of-state student and kin of alumni, I was awarded a great scholarship that covered all out-of-state fees. The quality of my education, the social benefits, and the location of USU are all well worth what I pay!

I am loving my classes here! One of my classes is kind of confusing, but I am still learning a lot. The professors here really know how to teach and still keep the subject interesting. I actually enjoy going to my classes!
Am enjoying being here
There is a perfect balance between a study environment and a social scene. Everyone is super nice and outgoing. The school spirit is also really cool. The sports games are one of my favorite things to go to. I found my perfect college!
Bang for the buck
There are good scholarships here and the tuition is definitely worth it.
Tips for prospective students
One of the things that I am really glad I did is finding a job on campus. It's great because your job is right where your classes are! I have also really liked living on campus because then you are in the center of everything and have the chance to participate in a lot of evening activities.
Great for these types of students
People who are ready to learn and want to have that perfect balance of studying and social life. You also need to be ready to cheer like crazy at the sports games!!!

The classes are very discussion and lecture based so you always are learning. The professors are very helpful and friendly. They want you to succeed as much as you do! It is easy to go and talk to them at anytime. They are always willing to sit down and talk to you about class if you do not understand a topic.
Am enjoying being here
I love attending USU! The education is amazing, the cost is great, and the people are so friendly! There is always something to do on campus, the gyms are in amazing conditions with top-notch equipment and the people are open, willing to help, and always wanting to make new friends!
Bang for the buck
I pay out-of-state tuition at USU and it is an amazing price! I pay as much going to USU as I would in-state tuition back home! Gaining residency is easy to do and then the cost is unbeatable, less than $4,000!!! For the amout of money you pay here, you get so much more out of it, USU hosts so many free activities and events it's incredible! Definitely worth it!
Tips for prospective students
~Explore the campus! There are so many little secret places on campus, it's so much fun to explore and enjoy!
~Check out the Fraternities and Sororities! The Greek system here is filled with so many great and friendly people, it's a great way to get involved and have a home and family away from home!
~Get involved! There are so many clubs on campus, join one! It's a great way to meet friends with your interests and to have something to do!
Great for these types of students
Great for friendly people, who love having something to do! For students who want a top-notch education without the massive cost! And for people who want to have fun and make friends that will last a lifetime!!!

The professors I have been able to have so far have been incredible and so willing to help me out. I also have appreciated the counselors that help me work out my schedules. The quality of learning here is so top-knotch, I enjoy the range of classes and labs offered here on campus.

Utah State provides the best all-around college experience! The city of Logan is the perfect atmosphere; it is truly a college town. There is always so much to do and experience, you can never be bored! It is such a beautiful, secluded area but there is always something fun going on- on and off campus!
Bang for the buck
I have never regretted making the choice to make Utah State my home and my school! I have friends who have attended others schools in and out of state and they are always complaining about something. I have always been able to find the help and resources I've needed to continue my education and I am so pleased with the way I am treated here. Scholarships are relatively simple to receive here as well, as long as you are up to the hard-work and dedication that Utah State is known for.
Tips for prospective students
Apply early and get all of your high school credits in order and send your AP Test scores to Utah State first. I would also look into living on campus at least for your first year, it helps you immerse yourself in the Utah State campus life and make the connections with peers and professors necessary for a good educational experience. Also get to know your professors, talk with them often! Their office hours are there for you to keep your education on track!
Great for these types of students
Independent, fun loving students who aren't afraid to work hard and then have fun when the day is done :)

You can find some great teachers at USU. A lot of the time you should take a class based on the teacher, not the subject and you can learn so much! They offer a wide range of classes and you don't have to start with just generals, you can mix in generals with classes related to your major.
Am enjoying being here
Utah State is so much fun. All the students are so welcoming and the A team is great. They help out with everything and there is so much to get involved with. Campus isn't that big and it's easy to find your way around. There is so much to do throughout the year and basketball and hockey games are the best!
Bang for the buck
Utah State is cheap, comparatively. The on campus dorms are nice and cheap and you get all utilities paid for. You can get lots of discounts in town cause everyone is an Aggie!
Tips for prospective students
Get involved. Join clubs and played intramural sports, they are definitely the best! Go out and meet lots of people but also find enough time to study, it's not like high school, you really have to study for finals. Logan is a college town and you get discounts everywhere downtown and everyone is rooting for you and the basketball and hockey games are awesome! It is definitely a fun school and I will be back for 3 more years. Also, remember to stay on top of school work. I know you want to enjoy the college experience but part of that is getting your work done first.

Utah State has a great aviation program. That is what I am in and I love it! The atmosphere at the airport is awesome and the instructors are great. They also have a good art program, that is what my roommate is in and she loves it. They specialize and many things and have a great engineering program and agriculture. You can find almost everything to fit your needs. It is also a friendly, social college. There is always something going on and a club for everybody.
