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.
Throughout time, USU has remained true to its roots as an institution dedicated to the land and its people. With the land-grant distinction, USU has the responsibility to “educate the state,” and it continues to maintain a presence in every county in Utah. Through academic and research prowess, athletic success, and unparalleled student experience, USU’s rich history and traditions color who we are today.
