Weber State has been an excellent and affordable school for those seeking a higher education. It is a place where one can study and feel safe from many of the problems plaguing our society. It is also a place where each student can enter the pathway to success.
Daniel from Ogden, UT
Weber State is fantastic! The professors teach the classes, rather than adjunct professors or graduate students.The professors are knowledgeable and down to earth, they schedule times to readily be able to meet with students who are in need of additional mentoring or assistance.
Stephanie from Ogden, UT
I love Weber State!!! The teachers are extremely caring and are willing to help you with anything in order to help you succeed. I was extremely worried about attending my first year of college, but from the moment I got there I have felt excited about continuing my education at this university.
