Overview:Since its founding in 1888, Utah State University has evolved from a small-town college tucked away in the Northern Utah mountains to a thriving research university respected around the world. Students can choose from an array of academic and social opportunities at a university known throughout the world for its intellectual and technological leadership.
The setting. USU is just minutes from two mountain ranges and within a half-day's drive of six national parks, including Yellowstone and Arches. It provides big-school opportunities with a small-school feel, and all for a great value.
In fact, USU is the #2 public university in the West (and top four in the nation) for lowest tuition on Forbe's list of America's Best College Buys (2014).
