| Southern Utah University is such an amazing school. I came here to study Information Systems and I cannot say anything bad about this institution of learning. The class sizes are small and every professor I have had so far knows every student's name. You have the ability to meet a new person every day, but establish lasting friendships at the same time. I lived on campus this year (and will do so again this next year). Many people complain about the cost, but you are paying for the EXPERIENCE. No where else will you find such a family-like atmosphere with built in study groups. I suggest that freshmen especially get involved with one of the leadership groups on campus. It allows you to be more involved with the university, meet more people, and build up your resume. Overall, this experience I have had so far has been fantastic. College is stressful (I have 18 credit hours, a part time job, and leadership), but the experience is well worth any stress you have. Cedar City is a beautiful place to be and SUU is an amazing school. GO THUNDERBIRDS! |

| Oh, SUU. Let's start with the good points. The campus and surrounding city are beautiful! I've never experienced a more beautiful fall or winter in my life (and coming from the snow-capped mountains of Salt-Lake, that is really saying something.) The campus is small so you get a decent amount of individual attention (if I see one of my professors wandering around they always greet me BY NAME, which is cool). It's large enough that you are always meeting new people but small enough that you are able to establish close relationships. On-campus housing is clean and well-kept (at least Cedar Hall.)|
Socially, because its such a small town there is next to nothing for you to do outside of class. The school hosts some events but for the most part you are left to your own devices when it comes to finding things to do on a Friday night. Movie nights are about as exciting as it gets if you're not into partying. Speaking of parties, they are hard to find, but aren't completely non-existent if you know the right people. Basically, social happenings seem to be few and far-between. Most students are so bored that they end up driving to their hometowns or just do the two hours to Vegas on the weekends. The students are very nice but the majority ARE Mormon which can make it hard to establish relationships unless you are willing to convert. Friendships come easily but you will usually face pressure from new friends to attend church functions.
Academically, SUU is not very challenging, classes aren't particularly interesting, and few professors are actually good at what they do.I don't necessarily hate SUU because I have made some great friends and done some fun things since I've been here, but it hasn't been without A LOT OF EFFORT. I personally wouldn't recommend this school to friends or family, but your experience will ultimately be what you are willing to make of it no matter where you go!
