Utah State University

Located in a high mountain valley 80 miles north of Salt Lake City, Utah State offers a wide variety of opportunities for research and study. In addition to the 400-acre main campus at Logan, there are a number of agriculture and engineering research stations spread throughout the state.

The School of Graduate studies offers 37 doctoral and 102 master's programs in engineering, agriculture, business, education, humanities and arts, natural resources, family life and science. Programs in forestry, wildlife management, agriculture, and engineering all have earned good reputations. In federally financed research and development expenditures, USU ranks 51st in the nation.

The Space Dynamics Laboratory is involved with aerospace research from a number of disciplines. Projects have included Strategic Defense Initiative research and work with the Space Shuttle program-indeed, Utah State was the first university to have an experiment designed by a student carried aboard the shuttle and has flown more student experiments than any other university.

The Utah Water Research Laboratory conducts a number of experiments and studies of hydrology, irrigation engineering, soil erosion, and runs a federally-funded water quality program.

Undergraduate enrollment is 13,000 and there are 2,500 graduate students. Hispanics account for 1% of the total enrollment, and minorities account for 3%. There are also 1,200 international students
from 76 countries.

A wide range of outdoor activities are found in the area, and residents enjoy the changes brought by four distinct seasons. Male and female dormitories, and on-campus single and family apartments are available.Overview
