College Senior

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.

Overall Experience: The computer science classes tend to be fairly large in the lower levels and very small in the higher levels. Students tend not to attend the lectures for the computer science classes. Religion classes tend to be fairly large, and students tend to attend the religion lectures. In general the lower level classes tend to be large.

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.

2 College Sophomore

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

Nightlife: There is basically no real party scene out in the open. There are some there, but they are secret, since you could get kicked out of school for that kind of partying.

3 College Junior

Academics: As a BGS student, there are not many options to my major. I would have preferred something a little different than I'm ending up with.

4 College Junior

Academics: On campus has one of the best library systems in the nation. If you want space to study, it's not hard to find.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Most of the people encourage students. Occasional grumpiness about them due to bad experiences with students. Lots of Mormon activities.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Focus is on religion, with prayers in each class. This is not a party school, and it's nice to have others around who want it that way.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I've lived in both expensive and cheap places around town, and you can really find whatever you're looking for.

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I didn't apply for financial aid so I don't have any experience there.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: BYU is a very beautiful campus and is very art-centered.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was a psychology major. There were no program requirements for entry.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I loved the classes and facutly. Curriculum and interesting and engaging.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: If you're hoping for a party school you're probably not going to pick BYU.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: If you choose to attend BYU, you know it has LDS standards and you know what you're getting into.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: A good amount of foreign students are accepted, and while the majority of students are heterosexual people are still given respect and friendship regardless of orientation.

Health & Safety: I only heard 1 rumor of sexual assault on campus, and it was many years ago. It just doesn't happen here.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I don't really know what Greek Life is, so we probably don't have it.

Guys & Girls: Attractive student body. People take care of their appearance more than most, and since academic standards are very high nearly everyone is very smart.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The campus is beautiful, the only downside to it is that construction never seems to end. Creating a beautiful and effective environment is important to the school, so they are always tearing down old buildings that have outlived their usefulness and building newer, more beautiful ones.

5 College Senior

Majors: I love my major and my department. There are so many opportunities to participate in research, work individually and in groups with professors, and assist other students. I'm an astronomy major and I can't think of another university which would allow me weekly access to an on-campus 16'' telescope.

College Senior

Majors: I haven't done an internship at this school, the school assists students in finding internships at other schools to broaden our network in the field

4 College Senior

Diversity: Okay, so it doesn't have the largest variety, but I've always felt it is a very accepting school . Despite being a religious university, I've met several students who are not of the same religious beliefs who enjoy being here and felt included at the school

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: The Food Court has a large variety which covers a large range of value and quality. I have always been able to find something I want regardless of my mood. The Food court is in a pretty good location for most classes, but several other buildings on campus also have dining available, so you never have to walk to far for food.

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.
