At first, Weber State University seemed intimidating based on the new systems that they had implemented during Covid-19. But after getting close to my academic advisor, I feel a strong sense of community and familiarity while attending Weber State. The class ratio is also incredibly comforting as I do have social anxiety, with the ratio being 21:1. In high school, my ratio was 34:1. It's drastically different, and I deeply respect and feel at home here.
The initial confusion. Not knowing where to go, the differing buildings, and just how vast the campus is. The eWeber website can be a tad bit difficult to navigate, but communication is key to success here. Lots of studying up on how things work and function are something I'd recommend if you want to survive the first year.
The quality of education is excellent. I also have really appreciated that the professors are down to earth and understanding of life circumstances for the most part.
I'm sure this is an issue in universities in general, but it is going to take me longer than needed to finish my degree because certain classes are only offered every other odd year, or something similar. It makes it difficult to plan ahead.
I have had a great experience at Weber so far. The counselors have been easy to get a hold of and willing to help with what I needed. The professors have also been willing to help and respond to any concerns or questions I have. The campus is easy to navigate. I drive and I usually don't have any problems finding a parking spot.
I don't really like the food options on campus. There is not very much variety and it is mainly convivence type food that I have found. And although the campus is walkable, there are hills and a lot of stairs.
The school is great academically it is an amazing school. The professors are all amazing. The campus is really nice, it is a smaller campus but extremely nice and easy to find and move between classes.
The social life is not great. I struggled a lot socially on this campus.
Classrooms are small so you feel like you get a more one on one learning experience. Most professors want to see you succeed and learn. You get a good education without having to absolutely break the bank.
Sometimes Weber State gets looked over since it is not a prestigious university.
I like Weber because we are a teaching school rather than a research school. I am learning from my professors directly, not their TAs. The professors are very personable and willing to work with their students to get past any obstacles they may have,
It can be difficult or time-consuming to get bills sorted out. In the fall of 2021, I was charged for another student's housing costs and it took several months to get the charges dropped. This has not happened to anyone else that I have talked to, but it was still frustrating that it took so long and so much effort to get set straight.
