Founded in 1888 Utah State University was originally known as the Utah State Agricultural College and was established by an act of the Utah Territorial Legislature. The agricultural roots remain and students from USU are known as Aggie's.
Today however the university has expanded far beyond Agricultural Science offering hundreds of B.S. M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. The school is widely hailed as being a research school and has sent more experiments into space than any other university in the country which has earned it the nickname of Utah Space University.
The main campus is in Logan, Utah, but there are sattelite and regional campuses in each of the 29 counties of Utah. As of 2008 student enrollment at the main campus consists of about 14,000 undergraduates and 4,000 graduates while regional campuses put the total enrollment close to 25,000.
Aggie's take pride in their athletics and are known as some of the craziest fans in the country. Many sports media figures have been amazed when the attend basketball games in Logan, Utah comparing the frenzied student section and atmosphere at Aggie games to that of ACC universities known only for basketball.
I attend school at Utah State University, the greatest university in the world.
