Home Stretch....3 short months to go!

Can you believe it? Seniors you are on the home stretch, the final 3 months of your entire high school career! What a huge milestone; one you should be very proud of. Hopefully, this is just the beginning. T he majority of you have settled into making one of the most important decisions of your life. Where to attend college! You’ve gotten your applications in {if not, it’s not too late!} and now you are sitting back weighing the pro’s and con’s for each institution. Don’t worry, that’s exactly what you should be doing right now. For those of you that might need some help, here’s just a few of the pro’s of attending USU:

*A GREAT SIZE: At USU we have 15,000 students that attend our main campus. You will be getting the best of both worlds. You will be getting the benefits of attending a big university {Division 1 Sports, 170+ majors, 2nd Oldest Undergraduate Research Program} mixed with the benefits of attending a small liberal arts college {A faculty to student ratio of 17:1, Average class size 20-29, 10 of the last 16 Carnegie Professors for the State of Utah teach at USU}.

*A GREAT LOCATION: You know what the say, Location, Location, Location! Ask any fellow Aggie and then will tell you that there’s nowhere on the planet quite like Logan. Logan is a 2 minute drive to Logan Canyon, an hour drive to 4 ski resorts and a days drive to 7 National Parks! Also, with Logan being the largest residential campus is Utah there’s always something going on on our campus. No wonder AIER College Destination ranked Logan as the #13 Best College Town! Still not convinced? USU also has over 200 clubs for you to get involved in, 12 intramural sport programs, and 7 fraternities and sororities to get involved with!

*AMAZING OPPORTUNITIES: Have you always dreamed of “Running with the Bulls” in Spain? Ever wished to pass the Eifel Tower on your way to class? Or take a weekend trip to see the Great Wall? If so, USU just might be the place for you! Our Study Abroad program has over 150 locations to choose from, it might be tough choosing just one! You can follow one of our students, Dexter Summers’ incredible study abroad experience online at

We would absolutely love for you to come and see what Utah State University has to offer you in your future. It's not too late to take a look at USU. One of the greatest ways for you to find out if USU is a great fit for you is to come and visit our campus. We offer campus tours Monday-Friday at 10:15 and 1:15 daily.

As always, GO AGGIES!!!
