Hi everybody! I'm sure you've heard these questions a million times before, so sorry if it sounds repetitive.
Anyways, I'm Mallory. I'm 19, and this year I'm a sophomore at Humboldt State University in Northern California. Last year I was at University of Alaska Fairbanks, where I was born and raised. I'm on the National Student Exchange program, and I thought I was going to end up transferring here to HSU but I have since gotten here and thought more about majors I have since realized that that is not going to be the case, heh. I want to major in speech hearing sciences/communication sciences and disorders, and that is definitely not offered here. So I started looking at my options for schools that participate in the Western Undergraduate Exchange program and have the major i'm looking for and University of Utah was one of them!
So anyways I have a few questions.
What is Salt Lake City like? Weather wise, things to do wise, Etc.
Bars and clubs aren't a huge deal to me, as I'm not 21 and I'm not so much into that scene anyways. I love going to concerts (local and otherwise) and movies..And weather wise I'm up for snow and cold, how cold does it normally get there?
What are the students like? How is the on campus housing? I've lived in dorms this year and last year, and would be up for campus housing again provided there are apartment style dorms..I'm over typical dorm living, heh. Is it hard to find an apartment, is rent expensive, etc etc.
What are the academics like? Small classes, huge lecture style? last year I had all small classes and this year all my classes are 50+ lectures, and it sucks.
I know that was a really vague short list of questions, but I think really what I'm looking for is just some thoughts about Salt Lake City, the campus and everything. I've never been to Utah, I'm not mormon (or religious at all) and I'm kind of a small town girl. Any thoughts are appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
