4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Don't Regret Russian – It is a tough major to figure out what you want to do with your life. Your options are teaching, translating, or possibly something political. I eventually want to teach a secondary class. My program is also helpful in getting you certified to teach and ready for job searching.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: BYU has a website that posts all internship opportunities for their students. I haven't had an internship yet, but I plan on interning in Moscow next summer. BYU is very helpful in organizing and informing you of all the opportunities around the world to work and not just close to BYU.

Off-Campus Dining: Fast Food Central: Not Catered to College Students – There are plenty of places to eat near campus, but not many of cater to the needs and wants of the students nearby. They never have discounts or incentives. Some have punch cards for when you buy so many meals, you get one free, but other than that, that is all they do to cater to us. But Kneaders for breakfast is a must go! All you can eat french toast. Everything is homemade and it is worth the wait!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Extremely Easy – The process of being a Russian major is simple. You go to the college of humanities office and speak to one of the counselors about declaring your major. They ask you if you have a double major you want to pursue or a minor, then they register you as a russian major. The only problem with being a russian major is that you have to study abroad, and you have to have another major or minor. Russian is a small major that does not have a lot of requirements, so the college advises that you have another field of study to supplement your Russian.

Nightlife: Finding people that attend BYU and even WANT to go to a club would be pretty hard, seeing as most of us are Mormon. BYUSA, the dorms, and the off-campus housing people put on a lot of events that are really fun, and we also enjoy the wide variety of outdoor activities having mountains surrounding us provides. There's plenty to do, but I gave the B grade because I'm pretty sure you're talking about clubbing, and that's something we don't do :P

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Perfect for Freshman – This is exactly what I needed to transition into campus housing. It gets you used to having a roommate, it's really social, food is taken care of with your meal plan, and you're super close to campus!

1 College Student

Diversity: White White White – Everyone here is soooo white. I know the idea is that it's super diverse with Mormons from all over....yeah, no. There might be a lot of Mormons from abroad, but still. WHITE.

4 College Student

Weather: I Love This – It snows, it's sunny, it's hot, it's cold, it's so interesting! Yeah, heavy snowfall and summer melts might get in the way a little bit with transportation, but other than that, I love the weather and the variety. When it's cold, it's not awful, and when it's hot, it's not unbearable. The desert climate is amazing.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: You can find good parties nearly every weekend if you look for it but it's definitely not the focus here. The clubs are really non-existant too.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Good Environment to Be Yourself – You're really allowed to learn and do whatever you want to be the most successful you can be. The university is constantly focusing its resources towards creating a better experience for the students. The only issue I've come across is that it's difficult to find guidance on careers that combine several interests groups. For example, I want to be a psychiatrist. Guidance on medical school is plentiful but on a psychological interest is nearly nonexistent.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors Work to Teach Us Things That Are Useful in the Field – I am in the Computer Science major at BYU currently and it has been my experience thus far that the professors go out of their way to teach us topics that are relative to our futures out in the work field. Many of the professors have gone through many different jobs throughout their life which helps them provide us with helpful tips for how we can go about not only learning the materials of the class, but how to apply them to get jobs. There are also many internships and jobs on campus that are available to students to help them gain experience so that once they are graduated they have applicable experience to bring with them out into the work force.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Many Opportunities Are Available – I came to BYU mainly because of the reputation that it holds of having great professors and great classes that really prepare us for the real world. I have had many great professors who have really cared about their students and how they are doing in their class. This even happens in larger classes where there are 200+ students. They are always very open to working with students outside of class during their office hours. The classes so far have all helped me prepare for my future as well. The topics are relative and worth while.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: At BYU people are openly accepted for who they are. It is extremely rare to see any discrimination of persons. On the contrary you see people from all over here on campus and everyone mingles together as if we were all the same. It is the greatest environment.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: So Much Choice – walk, theres so many doing it. cycle, drive, take a bus..whatever you like :)

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: TOO MANY OPTIONS. off campus is crazy. theres condos, houses, apartments, everything you can imagine in all sorts of sytles and at all rpices. the best!

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Friendliest School Ever. Everyone loves everyone and everyone is welcome. Guys are super hottttt! Dating is BIG here:) And fun too. Lots of fun stuff always hapeening. SUCH an amazing fun spirit.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Who's Not on Scholarship? You have to maintain a minumum GPA and your full scholarship is a guarantee! Most everyone i know is on some finacial aid. I've had it all my years here!:) It's super easy and the university is very helpful. Besdies, fees are already SO low!

5 College Sophomore

Weather: COMBINATION OF EVERYTHING AWESOME! BYU has the best weather and prettiest campus! It's hot, cold, warm, cool, everything. Fall and spring is really pretty. It doesnt snow all year round which is wonderful..so by the time youre tired of the snow, its gone and beautiful spring is here! Fall is reaaaaaly pretty. To die for.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: seriously? there is none at BYU! There's plenty of other awesome stuff to do though, so you won't be missing out on much fun, that's for sure. The students that come here are just not the type. Besides, they know how to have fun without being drunk.

Overall Experience: Overall a Great Experience! The school year has not begun yet, but so far I absolutely love the campus environment. There are always fun and wholesome activities to participate in so you are never bored. The work load is challenging, but who doesn't love a challenge?

5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Campus honor code forbids use of alcohol or drugs and community as a whole does as well. No peer pressure. Policy is enforced strictly.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Easy to find off campus housing. Apartments are priced well and other tenants are easy to get along with.

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: College was very safe and environment was extremely hospitable.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Everything Is Smooth Sailing – It was really easy for me to apply and receive a loan. The advisors make sure that you know how to save money as much as possible and be smart with the money you're receiving. They trust you and let you know everything that you need to do to pay it off when it's due.

3 College Junior

Athletics: True BYU fans are die-hards. It doesn't matter which sport it is or how we play, those of us who truly love BYU athletics stand by our teams. Of course, not every student is a true fan. We also have incredible inter-mural sports of which every student can take part.

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.
