Weber State University
Weber State University (that's Wee-ber) sits on 500 acres nestled at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in beautiful Ogden, Utah. Students will live and learn close to opportunities for outdoor adventures (hiking, biking, climbing, kayaking, skiing--you name it) and internship connections with local businesses, hospitals, schools and nonprofits.
For more than five decades, Weber State has successfully pursued a dual educational mission, filling the roles of both community college and regional university. Seven academic colleges oversee more than 50 academic departments and offer over 225 majors, minors and certificates.
With that many academic options, students are able to experience quality and variety. That's 225+ ways for them to pursue something that’s just right for them based on their skills, passions and career goals.
Even though we are big enough to provide hundreds of options, we’re also small enough to guarantee a personalized approach. Professors will know a student's name, classes will be small, and learning experiences will be hands-on, no matter the major. Faculty are also experts in their fields, with strong ties to the professional world, so they can connect students with research, internship and job opportunities.
In addition to offering top-quality academic programs, we’re also one of the most affordable universities in the U.S. because of our low tuition and generous financial aid. In fact, our out-of-state tuition is lower than many states’ resident tuition for public universities.
Whether students are looking for a professional certificate, a master's degree, or anything in between, we've got it covered.
Weber State has something for everyone. With multiple campus locations and centers, online and distance learning, students can create a schedule that fits around their life.
Whether it’s premier outdoor adventures, athletics or student activities, there's always something to do. We have 16 NCAA Division I teams—and Weber State students get FREE tickets to home games. They can take their pick from 17 competitive sport clubs, play an intramural sport or take up a fitness class.
Weber State's Outdoor Program will hook students up with equipment, challenge courses and adventure trips to go skiing, whitewater rafting, canyoneering and more.
For students who live on campus, it is just a short walk from class to the nearest trailhead. Our housing also offers Living Learning Communities, where students can live and interact with other like-minded students.
There are also a number of fraternities and sororities at Weber State with a long history of providing exciting leadership and personal growth opportunities.
Students can choose from more than 200 clubs and organizations to meet students who share the same career path, hobbies or interests.
Weber State has excellent programs for students who want to give back and make a difference. Last year, Weber students contributed 139,830 hours of community service.
We know that it takes more than just good grades and a diploma. Weber gives students plenty of opportunity to get out of the classroom, collaborate with faculty and gain hands-on experience through internships, service learning or undergraduate research.
