Here at University of Advancing Technology, we have an exciting event called Humans Vs Zombies, or HVZ for short. HVZ is a week-long event dedicated to experiencing what it would be like to try and survive the zombie apocalypse, just like the video games! Hearing about this event was one of the really cool factors that made me love this school! This event is fun and different from your typical university.
The University of Advancing Technology (UAT) is a pretty small campus with only two buildings: the main campus building and the dormitory. I discovered a whole new world of UAT when I moved into Founder's Hall, a melting pot of geek culture, where studious hackers, (really) excited robotics students, digital artists and designers gather to talk about the future of technology, crush energy drinks, tackle homework, shoot some pool, game all night, hash out problems and form lasting friendships.
The University of Advancing Technology is different. You can tell as soon as you walk in the door just how different it is and how strong the culture is. But what makes it so different from other universities? For me, it's our people—the friendly community of geeks who help each other out, make each other laugh and push each other to innovate and create.
