Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City is the 23rd largest metropolitan area in the United States. National magazines and websites frequently list Salt Lake among the “best places to live.” Forbes recently ranked Salt Lake City in the top 25 best place for business and careers. Factors include recreational options, business environment, climate, and a low crime rate. 

The Salt Lake International Airport is just nine minutes from downtown, and getting around is easy on TRAX, the city’s ever-expanding light rail transit system. TRAX lines now connect campus with the airport and all sections of the Salt Lake Valley. 

Residents and visitors alike have access to the diverse assortment of restaurants and bars with culinary options running the gamut from tapas bars to nouvelle cuisine. The NBA’s Utah Jazz is a downtown staple, as is the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees of baseball’s Pacific Coast League. 

But Utahns really spend much of their time outdoors skiing, mountain biking, and hiking. From campus, seven world-renowned ski resorts are just 30 minutes away and five National Parks are within a five-hour drive. Forty golf courses are strategically located throughout the valley and nearby mountains. And hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails can be accessed just to the east of campus.
