Salt Lake City has a population of close to 200,000, a far cry when you compared it with just the Central and Western districts in Hong Kong which has 240,000 people! Utah State has a population of only 3.2 million compared to Hong Kong’s 7.5 million.
If you are into the outdoors and want a big city feel, Salt Lake City is a place for you. It’s on you to get out there and making an earnest effort to experience the city via your interests. It might be on a smaller scale than you’re accustomed to, but everything you enjoy exists here.
The University of Utah is a great school that has room for a lot of different opinions and mindsets.
The University of Utah can be somewhat liberal at times but with good intent, and they are good at making sure everyone is welcome no matter their opinions, political/social views, or background.
It’s growing all the time and they tried to keep things up to date and relevant in the ever-changing world. (Note 3)
There are always events going on and ways to get involved in campus life. School spirit is everything on campus. (Note 4)
U students aren’t too liberal, but you’ll find the student body very diverse. The Residence Halls claim to be the most diverse on-campus housing in the Western U.S. There are plenty of student groups for anyone to find similar interests.
Undergraduates interested in university housing can choose from traditional residence halls, two- and four-bedroom apartments and common-interest living communities. The Utah sports teams, the Utes, compete in the NCAA Division I PAC-12 Conference and are rivals with Brigham Young University’s teams. The U of U runs a variety of research centers and institutes, including the Brain Institute, the American West Center and the Center for High Performance Computing.
Include Alan Ashton, co-founder of WordPerfect; Nolan Bushnell, founder of both Chuck E. Cheese’s and video game company Atari Inc.; and John Warnock, co-founder of Adobe Systems Inc.
#1A. The City
Salt Lake City was named one of MarketWatch’s top 10 towns for young techies. Top degree programs in the area, high startup growth, the number of startup incubators & accelerators, and our own Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute were factored in the ranking.

#1B. The State
Utah is a good balance of all different kinds of people. It’s actually probably a pretty decent microcosm of society in general.
While it is true that the LDS (Latter-Day Saints) church has a large influence in the state, Salt Lake City is an open city where most people find their place and love it. It’s a big-small city, meaning that you have the great feeling of large but without the headaches and problems of traffic, cleanliness, and crime.
Utah is a western U.S. state defined by its vast expanses of desert and the Wasatch Range mountains. Salt Lake City, the capital, is centered around Temple Square, headquarters of the Mormon Church and site of its majestic temple and tabernacle, with its massive dome and renowned choir. The Great Salt Lake’s buoyant waters attract swimmers and sunbathers, especially at Antelope Island State Park.
#2. The University of Utah’s BS in Games degree program
The Entertainment Arts and Engineering (EAE) Program at the University of Utah is a top-ranked program in video game education and research and is a national leader in the nascent discipline of games. The program is contributing to the definition of a new interdisciplinary informatics field that deeply integrates art, humanities, social science and computational research and practice.
The Program brings an interdisciplinary approach to the art of game design – film studies and computing. Students graduate prepared to enter the fields of software design and development, game learning environments, and/or the development of digital healthcare tools for society in general. U of U’s video game design degree requires the completion of 121 credit units to graduate.
The diverse faculty has expertise in every facet of game creation, and we have consulted with top industry professionals to build a one-of-a-kind learning experience in game development.

#3. The University of Utah was integral to that world-changing occasion (Oct 30,2019)
The University of Utah was one of the original four “nodes” of the ARPANET (the internet precursor).
50 years ago, the precursor to the internet (ARPANET) was born when four institutions—UCLA, Stanford University, UC Santa Barbara & the University of Utah—connected computers at their respective locations to communicate w/ each other. On Oct. 7, UoU celebrated this world-changing milestone. (more… attheu.utah.edu/science-technology/birth-of-the-internet/ )
#4. Religious issue
While going to Brigham Young University (Known as “The School Down South” around campus) might prove the stereotypes about the Mormon culture to be true, the University of Utah is quite different. The U hosts the majority of the Mormon counterculture in Utah, and so people who perhaps don’t accept the Mormon faith, will feel quite welcome here at UoU. In addition, if you are of the Christian faith, there are many campus groups with which to involve yourself – Campus Crusade (www.utahcru.com), Ute-Nited (www.utenited.com), Salt Co., or Intervarsity Christian Fellowship.
There is a large Catholic population on campus and many of them attend at Newman but many students do not know about the Newman Center and do not utilize that.
