3 College Junior

Weather: Utah weather is insane. But, it doesn't really affect the experience, if you don't like the weather, just wait 15 minutes and it will change.

2 College Junior

Academics: A few years ago they moved my major to the business school and now I feel like over half the classes I'm required to take have nothing to do with what I'm planning on going into. In total I only have to take 5 classes for my major specially and I think that is ridiculous. The major classes aren't a lot of work, they're fantastic, but the business classes require a lot of effort. Internships are mandatory and volunteer hours are mandatory, which is nice, and like 98% of students end up passing the certification exam.

5 College Junior

Academics: All of my professors have been absolutely wonderful especially my TR ones. They are the only that makes the required business classes suck less.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: BYU is notorious for the Honor Code. It is pretty strict, but I personally love it, I think it's great. It prevents us from getting into trouble.

College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have the typical sororities and fraternities at the Y.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in Wyview Park my first year at the Y and I loved it. The apartments were spacious and I only had two other roommates. There were always tons of social activities and they create an environment where it's pretty easy to meet new people and make friends. The only downsides: it's a 20 minute walk to campus and the walls are really thin.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is definitely a reason that BYU is constantly voted the most "Stone Cold Sober" school in the nation. Because of the Honor Code and the large LDS population drug and alcohol use is virtually nonexistent and it's fantastic. Like anywhere else if you're looking for it hard enough you can find it, but it is definitely not mainstream.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: It is nice that the school always provides computers for everyone to use, although I personally like having a laptop just because it's nice and easy to have.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is well prepared and taste very good; it is also great to have a variety of restaurants and options.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The school has a strict honor code about drugs and alcohol, therefore students do not participate in those things.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are some activities and parties, but usually the type of parties without any alcohol.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek organization at this university.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is a little tricky because a permit is required and traffic can get bad. Most people walk, bike, or take a bus to campus.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Many people do have the same moral background and beliefs; their main desire is to help others and serve them.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many students have a lot of school spirit by attending the college games, as well as enjoying themselves in playing sports just for fun.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is nice to start off in campus housing, but there isn't as much freedom for those living on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is nice for those to have off campus housing since they are just as nice (or nicer) than on campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Although this university has a strict policy, it helps maintain things in order.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Although it is hard to enter in the Mechanical Engineering program, it has many great professors and provides a lot of knowledge for the students.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't have an internship, but I would like one because it will help me prepare myself even more for the work force.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wouldn't know much since I have never received financial aid, but for those friends that do have financial aid, it has helped them out a lot.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: They offer bus and train passes for those that do live far from campus but within the metro area.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I lived in Wyview, Wymount, Park Plaza, Liberty Square, and University Villa. All of them were convenient to campus - Park Plaza and University Villa being most convenient. I liked all of them. If I had to choose a least favorite it would be Liberty Square and that was mostly because my ward was not as outgoing and friendly as previous ones had been. Just a tip - start your Fall housing hunt in February if you want to find a place that can fit you and all your friends before everything good runs out.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: The only time I ever needed a car was to go grocery shopping. And even that I could do on campus if I didn't mind paying a little extra at The Creamery. It depends on your apartment location, but at every place I lived everything else is in walking distance.

4 Recent Alumnus

Parking: If parking is full everywhere else, you can always find a parking spot in the Marriott Center lot.

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.
