WHAT I LIKED

Small class sizes and open office hours helped me get to know my professors easily. I felt like I got a great education. There are a lot of extracurricular activities throughout and around the university. Anyone interested in the outdoors would love to attend SUU.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

SUU is in a small town. I'm not a big fan of small towns because I am from a city, so I find myself traveling a lot to go to stores or restaurants that I enjoy.

WHAT I LIKED

I love that SUU gives a close-knit, community-like feel. The student-to-teacher ratio is also small enough that professors are able to to get to know you as a student and teach their content effectively. The personal relationships I have developed with my professors have allowed me to be very successful in my academic pursuits.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn’t like how there was not much parking availability on campus at SUU. The student body has only grown, and there should be adequate parking to accommodate that.

WHAT I LIKED

SUU puts the emphasis on taking care of their students as well as encouraging their academic lifestyles. I've never been to a place where my resources are so accessible.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

This is a small regional university, so be prepared for a bit of smaller town life. Luckily, there's a major city only an hour away so you can still enjoy many activities.

WHAT I LIKED

There is always something happening on campus. Small class sizes, more time one on one with professors to get the help you may need. A very welcoming environment. Everyone is kind and wants you to succeed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Cedar city is small and there isn’t much to do that isn’t involved with the school. Very windy.

WHAT I LIKED

SUU is a great place for people who like to be outside and do outdoor adventures but also want an education.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Academic Advisors aren't exactly doting and expect you to take all initiative, which isn't terrible but if you're lazy it's going to be difficult. Also if you're not a freshman they don't care much for you.

WHAT I LIKED

I have really enjoyed my time here. I do not live on campus but go to campus every day. There’s generally a happy buzz feeling through the campus. The professors have been amazing!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Honestly nothing much. There isn’t a ton of eating options. But I don’t eat there often so it’s been ok
