1. WSU provides a nationally ranked quality level of instruction:
Forbes magazine recently ranked the top 600 colleges and universities (out of roughly 5,000 institutions) on the basis of their ability to provide a quality undergraduate learning experience, and Weber State ranked an impressive #248...ahead of University of Southern California (#281), University of Oregon (#290), Utah Valley University (#346), Arizona State University (#350).
These ranking only confirm what many already know - Weber State University has a strong academic reputation built on a long 120 year history of institutional excellence.
2. Living Here Won't Break the Bank
If you choose to live off campus, South Ogden was recently ranked by Money Magazine as a "contender" for among the best cities in the nation when measured by affordability, livability, and over-all happiness.
In addition, the greater Ogden municipal area was recently ranked #10 in the nation for "best-for-your-buck" livability - low cost to rent, purchase food and other goods.
And yes, these results apply to college kids living in a college town. Ogden, Utah is among the most affordable "college towns" in the United States.
