Immerse yourself in an environment that inspires great art and design. Utah State University is nestled against the Wasatch Range on the western slope of greater Rocky Mountains. Located directly on the beautiful Logan Canyon National Scenic Byway, the USU campus is a portal to the picturesque Logan canyon and river that cuts through the dramatic limestone cliffs of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. Ten major ski resorts, many of which hosted sites for the 2002 Winter Olympics, lie within a two-hour drive.
Utah State is also within a half day’s drive of six national parks, including Yellowstone. Just minutes from two federally designated wilderness areas, students have access to thousands of acres of public land for backcountry skiing, hiking, and more. It’s unique environment that gave birth to nearby world class earthworks sculptures such as Robert Smithton’s Spiral Jetty and Nancy Holt’s magical Sun Tunnels.
