5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus is very safe. Crime is rare, assaults are rare, the police are always around, there are emergency button poles placed everywhere.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of good local restaurants. There are dance clubs and concert halls. There are a huge number of slushie/icecream/frozen yogurt shops for students. Almost everyone in Provo is a student, so the local attitude is pretty good.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is okay. It has a completely different atmosphere than off campus, with mostly freshmen. The best option would be the new Heritage buildings or Wyview, the worst Helaman Halls and old Heritage. New Heritage is the most expensive, but Wyview is decently priced and really nice, the only bad thing is that it takes thirty minutes to walk to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Again, this is BYU, so the typical night party is watching a movie or playing night games in the park and having Doritos and root beer. They can be fun, and they don't interfere with schooling at all. They are generally just at someone's apartment.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't really know anything about athletics. I am not a sports person. My sphere of influence is the music and arts department. I do know that football and basketball are really big.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: This is BYU. We are known for being strict. The Honor Code includes abstaining from drugs, alcohol, sex, coffee, immodesty, etc. This isn't a problem for most students seeing as these are things that they have been living as LDS members their entire lives. The dress code is a little harder for a lot of people, especially the acceptable hair length for men and having to always be clean shaven in order to take tests and attend activities.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It is a relatively easy application process for LDS members. You write some essays and provide high school grades. You then also need an ecclesiastical endorsement from a local bishop and stake president, which can be tricky to get if you aren't already affiliated with the church. But once you have the appointment, it seriously takes less than five minutes and then you're done.

The application process is easy, but BYU is pretty strict on who is accepted. High school GPA and ACT scores are important.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I really like my program. The workload isn't terrible and most of the teachers are great. The only thing is the limited job/internship opportunities. There are a lot of Elang and editing students looking for jobs around the area and the pool is only so big.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Plenty of things to go in such a lively city!

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is a very busy city, constant traffic. But there is always something fun to do. Lots of fun restaurants, stores, and activities. Very fun place to meet people from other schools too.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Games are fun to go to, we have awesome fans and great teams

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The honor code keeps us safe for most of the time. There isn't fear of drugs or alcohol and there is a very big support group for victims of any assault.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am an undergrad going into communication disorders. While it is a very competitive program, the staff tries to make it manageable and fun. The classes are great and very interesting.

College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had an internship.

3 College Senior

Majors: If you really look and apply seriously for a couple internships, chances are you will get one. That is especially the case for business.

3 College Senior

Majors: DO NOT DO PRE-MED AT BYU!! That is the dumbest thing you can do. It is far too competitive to get good grades, and BYU does not have IV league credibility when it comes to getting accepted to med school.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Subway and Chik-fil-A are the best places by far. Taco Bell is also pretty good.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and dessert places.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: There are a lot of dry parties that you can go to. A lot of the apartment complexes have parties every weekend.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: No drugs, alcohol, tea, coffee, or caffeine on campus (although no one cares if you drink caffeine)

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It has exactly what I want to go into and has a great program for that.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus in general is a safe environment. Everyone is very nice and the police are constantly everywhere. It makes you feel extremely safe and secure. The campus is also well lit which improves the safety at night.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks are viewed the same as any other student

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
