About the U

Step one: Imagine. Step two: Do.

Imagine what you want to accomplish, then really making it happen. Imagine designing and publishing a video game before earning your diploma, starting a business while studying business, and doing all this in a setting that begs you to get out and do something.

Imagine, then Do. Opportunity awaits and all things are possible at a place we call Imagine U. The University of Utah.

Utah's sporting prowess isn't the only reason the U was asked to join one of the nation's premier conferences — the University's academic achievements and strong scientific research played a major part.
