What Students Are Saying

3.44 Average Rating
Study at least 2 hours for every 1 credit hour you take, sit on the front row in class, answer the teacher's questions- even if your not sure if it is right, they like the input, and they will get to know you better (follow these steps and you should get a 4.0 :) ) and get involved! there is a lot of cool leadership opportunities and fun things to do always.
Natalie from Spanish Fork, UT
Do not rule out UVU just because it is an open-enrollment school. The quality of education is outstanding, for all types of learners. The University in general does a great job at meeting you where your needs are at. If you were never really great at the whole school thing in high school, there's a place for you. If you were a straight-A student--likewise--our Honor's program is AMAZING!
Kaitlin from Eagle Mountain, UT
Keep in touch with your academic adviser if you want a straight shot to your major. If not then there are a lot of interesting fun classes to take there.
Rebecca from Sagamore Beach, MA
While attending school, it is a given, you must STUDY! I spent most of my days in the library studying, which was great because it is brand new! It even has the new carpet smell. There are many places on campus other than the library that offer perfect arrangements for study. I loved that I could walk down a hall and see so many others in my same position, studying as hard as possible to become a success story. For any prospective students, I would utilize all of the places there are to study. Some of my favorite places are as follows: the Losee Center, the Library, the Computer Science Building, the Hall of Flags, and the LA Hall. Not only can you study in these places, but you can also people watch, and who doesn't love that?!

It's always helpful to check out your professors on ratemyprofessors.com, because despite UVU having a lot of caring professors, sometimes you can get a difficult teacher. Be sure you check with your counselor a lot, because they will help you reach your goals in a timely manner!!!
Rachel from Provo, UT
I say get in contact with the department you're interested in as soon as possible! Tell them a little about yourself, and what you're looking for in an education, the department counselors are EXTREMELY helpful and willing to work with you on a graduation schedule. And even if you're unsure of what you want to major in, or if you decide to CHANGE your major halfway through, there's no hassle, and they COMPLETELY understand!
Sarah from Pleasant Grove, UT
Talk to your advisors!!!! They'll help you figure out exactly what classes you should be taking and if you don't know what you want to study, they can help you look at all you different options and decide what classes to take to figure it out. They're very supportive and helpful. Also, take a little bit of everything. Enjoy the different class choices. Regardless of your major, take a dance class or a cooking class or a auto shop class. Try new things! College is a great chance to experience lots of different fields and learn about life. TAKE A PERSONAL FINANCE CLASS!!!
Natasha from Orem, UT
If you want to do well in college you have to put 100% into the work.
Don't procrastinate.
There are always going to be fun things to do, always, so put your homework first.
Talk to your teachers. You will hear it a lot but you have to put yourself out there.
Keep a planner and write down all assignments from the syllubus.
Always read all of the syllubus.
Alyssa from Centerville, UT
Go check out the school and meet with the counselors. There is no better way to find out if it is the school for you unless you get to know the school.
AnnAlysse from Santaquin, UT
Apply early, UVU is one of the fastest growing universities in Utah! This means you will be exposed to numerous amounts of people and always have someone to do something with! I highly recommend coming to Utah Valley University, it's cheap, fun, and has a lot of programs, along with professors who actually care about how much their students learn!
