Plain and simple, people who have been to Utah State University love it. No other place provides the complete package quite like USU: top-notch academics, nationally recognized research, Division I athletics, and more than 200 student clubs and organizations, all on the oldest residential campus in the state. In fact, USU is the #1 public university in the West (and top five in the nation) for lowest tuition on Forbes' list of America's Best College Buys (2011). The mission of the Department of Computer Science of Utah State University is to maintain a program of excellence in teaching, research, and service. Students are given the opportunity to obtain a well-founded understanding of the principles and theories of the science of computing. In addition, the curriculum presents a University Studies program that gives students the social, ethical, and liberal education needed to be positive contributors to society as a whole.
