#StateEducationInAmerica# - More and more Chinese students are choosing to study in the United States each year. With more than 4,000 accredited colleges and universities to choose from, it can be a daunting task to choose the right school and location for you. To help you get started the Embassy’s EducationUSA team we will feature a daily post this month about various U.S. States to highlight their education options. Will start the conversation with Utah.
Located in the western United States, Utah has a population of nearly 3 million, approximately 80% of whom live near the state’s capital Salt Lake City. Utah is the 10th least densely populated of the 50 United States and was claimed as “the best state to live in” by a 2012 Gallup national survey. As a center of transportation, tourism, information technology, research and mining in western U.S., Utah is also rich in education resources. There are 73 higher education institutions in Utah are recognized by Chinese Ministry of Education (see www.jsj.edu.cn/news/1/212.shtml ).
