Overview:Utah State offers top-notch academics, nationally-recognized research, Division I athletics and more than 200 student clubs and organizations, all on the oldest residential campus in the state.
Located in Logan, Utah, USU is only minutes away from two mountain ranges, within a two-hour drive of 10 major ski resorts, and a half-day's drive of six national parks, including Arches and Yellowstone. Utah State offers big-school opportunities with a small-school feel, and all for a great value. So great, it was the #3 highest-ranked public university in the West and #5 in the nation for lowest tuition in “America’s Top Colleges” (Forbes, “Top Colleges,” Aug. 2015).
To date, Utah State has seen year after year increases in total research funding, with research grants from the U.S. Department of Defense, National Science Foundation and the Department of Health and Human Services. USU’s research – often beginning in facilities like the Utah Water Research Laboratory, Space Dynamics Lab, Agricultural Experiment Station and the Center for Persons with Disabilities – provides expertise that reaches globally. And this focus on research starts early for students. USU’s undergraduate research program is the second oldest in the nation, behind only MIT.
As Utah’s land-grant university, Utah State takes seriously its role to provide access to education for every student in every corner of the state. With eight regional campus locations and 24 satellite campus locations, USU provides Utah students access to higher education by breaking through traditional geographic boundaries.
