This school is about getting a degree, notQuite BrightPsychology
This school is about getting a degree, not having fun or a social life. There are a lot of non-traditional (aka adult) students. Campus is pretty, not gorgeous but clean and well maintained. Faculty can be a bit condescending but you get the feeling it's from dealing with clueless students who ask questions first and read the syllabus later. Once you demonstrate you are NOT that kind of student they are great. If you are planning to go to graduate school at the UofU, don't spend time getting an undergrad in Psych at Weber, as of 2013 no Weber Psych students have been accepted at the U per the Dean of the Weber Psych department (lame).

Question
This school has it's ups and downs.BrightPsychology
This school has it's ups and downs. I'm not going to lie; it has a pretty good education quality. The professors are friendly and helpful, the classes are pretty small sized, and you are required to learn a lot, in areas both in and out of your major.

The social aspects of the school though, are nothing like a college experience should be. Most students here are transfer students, so it can be hard to make friends. There's nothing to do in the city, so most on-campus students go home on the weekends. It is a dry campus, which upsets a lot of people, but there is an underground drug scene for people who are into that. And this school has no school spirit. If you're looking forward to being able to cheer on your football team with like-minded people, go somewhere else. I'm currently debating if I should stay here for the education or if I should transfer for a college experience.

Question
I enjoyed my time at a Weber StateQuite BrightLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
I enjoyed my time at a Weber State University, but I would not recommend that serious students dabble their time away here. I transferred to The University of Utah to finish my teaching degree. Weber State used to be a two year school, but hasn't figured out how to get students through a four year program because they are overwhelmed by remediate students due to their open enrollment policy. It's not the place for me anymore.
