4 College Junior

Scholarships: Most scholarships given by BYU are academic. Thus if you are a good student and have a good GPA you can usually obtain a scholarship. I have a military scholarship so I do not usually worry about this process although I do apply for grants and cash scholarships to help with living expenses.

4 College Junior

Majors: We have a very large a variety of majors. There may be a few specialized areas such as culinary arts or something that we do not have majors for.

4 College Junior

Majors: We have tons of internships and resources on campus to help you find one. For my major and internship or research project are required to graduate. There are international internships set up all over the world and scholarship opportunities to fund them.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Just average restaurants and cafeteria food. One acception is that we run our own creamery which makes high end ice creams, milks, etc.

4 College Junior

Diversity: BYU has international students from around the world providing an enriching cultural experience to all students. The school has limited diversity in religion and values simply because it is a private school run by the LDS church. Even the non LDS students tend to share in ablot of the values we promote on our campus which is why they choose to come to BYU.

As far as sexual orientation we do not discriminate against those who have same sex attraction etc. However we view it as an adversity and it is totally fine as long as one does not act out on it. You won't see to men flirting with each or 2 girls out on a date at our school. Just like smoking may be a temptation for some it's considered fine to have the temptation but not to act on it.

We have students from just about every economic background and we all come together as one group with a shared identity as brothers and sisters where riches or lack there of do not matter.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Just like any population you will run into a few "rotten apples". For the most part those attending our school have strong values. They are usually smart because of the selection criteria for attending BYU. Our campus in general attracts certain types of individuals who have certain belief systems which somewhat molds how people behave at BYU.

The men in accordance with our schools honor code are clean shave, well groomed, and dressed modestly. In my opinion this makes them more attractive, no saggy pants with boxers hanging out, no looking like we just walked out of a dumpster, and no showing off things to be "sexy". Social life is great BYU has a variety of clubs and on campus activities to enhance the college experience. The guys readily participate in lots of fun without the alcohol.

Campus Strictness: BYU is a private run LDS school. The strictness we choose to adhere to when we sign the honor code and attend school protects young students, brings a sense of safety to parents and encourages Gospel standards. There are many LDS members that apply to an attend our school simply because of the positive learning environment. Kids still have fun minus the problems associated with alcohol, sex, drugs, and hazing. It's a wonderful campus with many opportunities that would be hindered if not for our strict adherence to our honor code.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: We don't really participate in the night life.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I really enjoy the campus. Some buildings are old, but the are being phased out. If you know where to look for a quiet space there are really nice, empty ones.

College Junior

Majors: I do not know enough about internships so my information wouldn't help a survey.

5 College Junior

Majors: I'm a biology major so they take anyone.

1 College Junior

Diversity: Ya, we're all basically the same.

College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have fraternities or sororities

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sometimes it's hard to get into courses, but there are a lot of courses and it gets easier as you gain rank.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Med schools love students from BYU and I think everywhere recognizes that the university has good students.

4 College Junior

Academics: It's really tough, but I think professional schools recognize that. It's manageable.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our school is crazy safe, the only school that would be safer is BYU idaho

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everybody is good looking and working hard, probably because of the standards set to attend the university.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police officers are very effective and efficient, and I believe there is a fairly low crime rate compared to other college campuses.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was skeptical when I first enrolled, but I love BYU and it's environment, though I'm not a fan of Utah in general.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a private university, BYU had a reputation for rigorous academics and so degrees are valued.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I personally am in an open major, so I didn't have to apply. But many of the majors are competitive and it can be difficult to get in.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My history department has a fairly low credit requirement, but the classes are pretty work intensive.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: BYU is very generous with scholarships. However, i'm in the unfortunate situation where my parents earn too much for me to qualify for pell grants, but not enough to actually help me pay for school. So money is tight.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing isn't ideal, but it's cheap so I suppose you get what you pay for.

A BYU experience is unlike anything else. The things that you will learn go far beyond what is taught in the classrooms, and the people that you will meet are exceptional. Researching the school, and being familiar with the rules and expectations of students, will make the transition smoother and help you get the most out of your BYU experience.

Talking with people who have attended, reading books such as this one, and looking at the BYU Web site (www.byu.edu) are all great ways to make sure that this is really the school for you. If you decide that BYU is what you want, then jump in and enjoy it! You are in for a great and character-building experience.
