Hi Anne,

Sorry noone has answered your query. I am pretty clueless, as I live in Oregon, and I am waiting to hear on an application to Utah St. To me, it looks to be a very safe, affordable, and pretty place. But the heavy LDS influence could leave you feeling isolated if you do not have social outlets in mind. I am just paraphrasing what I have read from others and from a co-worker who used to live there. If you provide some more info on your interests,etc., people might be able to help more.

Sorry, I never saw the original post. I'd recommend it due to the same reasons Fiddlehead mentioned. Coming from Jersey you'll probably be in awe at the everyday scenery. It's a heavily growing area as well which had added more diversity.

I'm from Utah and in my experience Logan is just a town with nothing special but a dumb college. If you're interested in a place similar but better with more diversity go to Ogden, Utah. It's in a higher populated metro area and it has very historic downtown with a diverse population and a cheaper university.

What the city of Logan has going for it (at least until the herd finishes overpopulating it) is that it doesn't have the "dumb" gridlocked freeways, the "dumb" urban sprawl, the "dumb" 24-hour-a-day confusion, or the "dumb" higher crime rate of the big cities along the Wasatch. Logan is a bit more laid-back, a bit greener, a bit cooler during the summer, and definitely a bit more scenic (all year around, and especially beautiful during the winter).

As for USU... in my opinion it's the best university in the state (and... no I didn't. I graduated from U of U).

I'd tell you to visit in the winter & then visit again in the summer and see if you like it.

I lived in Logan for a year while I did a stint at Utah State. I loved it. I would move back in a second.

They're from New Jersey. Ogden's crime really isn't much, the "urban sprawl" is nothing compared to Jersey, and definitely less confusion.

Well, let's see, the average national crime index is 320.9 . Logan's crime index averaged over the past ten years is 126.4 . Ogden's is 475.7 . I'll let the numbers do the talking.

Have you lived in Ogden?

Here are the facts. Most of Ogden's crime is property damage. The violent crime is below the national average.
