E******n from Provo Utah

I really love UVU, just because it seems like a pretty mellow school for the most part. What I mean by that, is most people come here to get a decent education at the cheapest cost, rather than going to some other more prestigious college. Pros: -Tons of young folk -Lots of Lds People -Has more students than any other Utah College -Tuition/Housing is insanely cheap compared to other colleges (in-state) -Lots of job opportunities all over Utah -Campus is huge and is growing -Most class sizes are not very big, but it depends on your major/class -The school is very professional looking -The school is less competitive, and is more focused on learning. -Offers dance classes Cons: -Too many Lds people -No football team -You won't get to take out as many student loans -Most Basic degree are offered, but there are a few that UVU doesn't offer -You won't get a job simply because you graduated from UVU, unlike an Ivy School.
