Utah State University is a public land-grant research university in Logan, Utah. It is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. With nearly 20,000 students living on or near campus, USU is Utah's largest public residential campus.
Utah State University is a large, affordable, research-oriented school that offers over 200 majors and “one hell of an engineering program.” The College of Education is “top notch” as well and there are strong programs in agriculture and business.
“You can find a club or organization for just about anything” at USU. Sports are reportedly “quite popular.” “Aggie Basketball is huge.” However, other teams are “sickeningly terrible.” There is a smattering of Greek life and there are “parties with a lot of alcohol involved.” However, nobody really comes here for the party scene. This is “Mormonville.” “Dinner and a movie” and a lot of good old-fashioned dating are far more common than drinking. The surrounding town of Logan is “small” and “in the middle of the mountains.” It’s “pretty steep” around here but it’s “an incredibly beautiful and inspiring place to live and learn” and “a great place for the outdoors.” “Everyone goes sledding on Old Main Hill in the winter.” For serious skiers and snowboarders, there is a resort “really close” and “the snow in the canyon is awesome.” “A lot of people miss class after a good snowstorm to hit the slopes,” observes a junior.
