Salt Lake City

Utah is home to some of the best outdoor recreation in the country. Westminster’s campus is just four hours from five national parks: Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches, and Canyonlands. The Sundance Film Festival takes place in Park City every year. And Utah has the Best Economy in the Nation (WalletHub, 2016).
