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.

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.

1 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone Is Similar – There are people from all over the world at BYU, but they are but a small percentage of the overall student body. The majority of students at BYU are white members of the LDS church and therefore have roughly the same views and opinions. Of course, that is a generalization, but compared to other schools even just in Utah, BYU is not diverse.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Mostly Academic – To qualify for a half-tuition scholarship, a student need only maintain a 3.5 GPA. The application process is fairly simple, consisting of a few essays. The university honors the government's FAFSA as well. As for a full-tuition scholarship, a student needs to have a 34+ on the ACT as well as maintain a decently high GPA (although I am unsure of the exact number).

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Pretty Nonexistent – Because BYU is a religiously affiliated school with most students adhering to the university honor code, there really isn't a drug or alcohol problem. Granted, if you're looking for trouble, you would probably be able to find it. However, the majority of students avoid drug/alcohol use and the presence of these substances on campus is nonexistent.

5 College Freshman

Computers: First Rate – I've never had trouble with on-campus printers or computers. The computers are all in good repair and the printers are almost always functioning. If there is a problem, there are always attendants ready to assist you. The on-campus wireless is phenomenal; it is never slow! The library has laptop rentals and you can even rent a laptop for the semester for a really low cost. All in all, the technology is first rate!

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Most people drive themselves. Buses are available, but don't run as often as a major city. It is reasonably cheap to buy a bus pass for the month or semester. Not much of a need though as everything is pretty close to campus.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Pretty Strict – BYU has a no tolerance policy about breaking the law or Honor Code. A minor infraction will get you a warning, but anything more severe is likely to get you kicked out. Just be smart and don't do anything stupid.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug and alcohol scene at BYU is virtually non-existent. The required Honor Code for students requires no alcohol or drugs, or you could be kicked out of the school. Great environment to learn.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Happy With Sociology – I was a sociology major and I enjoyed all the classes. I wasn't sure about sociology at first but I ended up just sticking with it and it was good. I would do it again. My goals are to go on to get my masters in public administration focusing on non-profit management

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Very Strict – All students have to sign a student honor code agreeing to no drinking, drugs, etc. A very high moral code. EX no members of the opposite gender in your room

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Very High Student Involvement – BYU has a very high student involvement and school spirit. It has good athletic facilities and good team performance. Good IM sports, very fun.

4 College Student

Transportation: the transportation is good. Everything is within waking distance, except some apartments, but there is a buss system that runs till 7 or 8.

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.
