Health & Safety: It is a really safe place. Most people here are respectable upstanding citizens and you can feel safe just about anywhere you go.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Due to the fact that we are a church school and as part of our doctrine we have the word of wisdom, we don't see a lot of your typical college parties and are well know for our lack of alcohol consumption. That doesn't mean we don't have fun, we just have fun in safer and more fun ways.

Nightlife: Night life at BYU has a different meaning from many other schools. Every Monday evening, there is family home evening.

Parties are not super important, and there is pretty much no drinking happening.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) chapter is fairly active. ACM meetings are bi-monthly and have recruiters most of the time. ACM also hosts recruitment lunches and dinners regularly.

BYU also has a general career fair and a STEM career fair every semester.

Campus Dining: They should have more choices and student discounts.

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.
