5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Extremely Spiritually Oriented – there is so much to do on campus and most of it is very spiritually oriented. the people are all really friendly and outgoing and the school activities are lots of fun.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Don't Procrastinate! There are plenty of scholarships, but many of them require the FAFSA to be completed before the school's scholarship deadline. Get it done early so you don't get left out in the cold. Also look up the Office of Prestigious Scholarships; it's the best kept financial aid secret ever!

1 College Freshman

Parking: Crap on Wheels – Cars aren't necessary, thank goodness, because trying to find parking within your permit allowance is a major hassle. They're always doing construction somewhere, and they always take up so much space doing it. If you want parking, you have to go to the stadium lot on the other end of campus.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Nonexistent Drug Scene – Due to BYU's Honor Code, students who attend do not participate in any drugs or controlled substances. Nobody on campus drinks, either. Off campus, I hear it's a little prevalent, but on campus and in the areas surrounding it (up till downtown), there is no problem with drugs.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Sober Campus – BYU is a dry campus and i actually really love that. It gives mem more time to focus on my studies and i can always make it to class. There is no one here that is high or drunk all the time so there are no crazy distractions. Everyone here came here to work and study and get a good education and i love that. It makes the atmosphere on campus great and the social life is fun because you can still remember it the next day!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most Amazing School – BYU has such a fantastic atmosphere and is a great way to learn. It is really fun and although our social scene is a little different from other schools it is amazing and i really love it. Everyone here is so nice and classes are actually fun!

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Walking or Biking – Everything is located very close to campus and so it is easiest to walk or bike as parking is hard. However there are buses if needed and they can be useful and they run pretty well.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Lots of Spirit! The athletics are pretty good. Some years some sports are good, and some years they are bad. Overall, BYU has great team spirit.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Pleasant Environment – BYU's campus is extremely safe. People are very friendly and courteous to one another. Those who to adhere to the Honor Code are very honest. There is very little cheating or stealing. The typical party scene is pretty much non-existant because most people don't drink, smoke, etc. There are fun sporting events, three malls close by, and plenty of hiking attractions.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I have not been accepted to my program yet, so I can't give an informed opinion on the Special Education at BYU. However, as a previous undeclared major, I know that the Academic Advisement centers are extremely helpful. BYU offers great career exploration course and introductory classes to certain majors.

Weather: The weather changes drastically and will go from 60 degrees to snowing within 24 hours. It's kind of ridiculous

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys at BYU are all clean cut, good looking guys. Most of them are looking for committed relationships in contrast to the stereotypical college one night stand. They dress well, enjoy group activities and a great deal of dating. Many of them are looking for marriage after they get home from their church missions.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: General Campus – Campus is well kept up; the buildings are pretty nice and they keep the grounds looking great year round. It's a gorgeous campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What You Make of It – Being at BYU depends on what you decide to make of your experience. It has been fun and I do enjoy it here, but it is hard getting used to being away from home if you have no family here. Living on cmpus is challenging and the dorms are small, but I have met some amazing people. It is more diverse then you would think and the campus has activites all the time. The devotionals are amazing and all of the professors really care about the students.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Walking and Biking – The transportation on campus is average. There is a lot of walking and biking. I highly recommend bringing a car. Though you do not need it for getting to class it is important to have if you want to do things on the weekends or when you go shopping.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town feels like a college town. It can be challenging living here if you are not from Utah. I love the Campus though it is really pretty and there are a lot of things you can do here. Your experience is all about what you make it. Having a car is important though everything may seem close here. Hicking is a must and there are tons of service activities avaliable. The campus is extremly safe and diverse. There are a lot of diffrent cultural activites.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: No drugs, no alcohol, no anything. If you seek it out of course you can find it- but on the whole, no one thinks it's cool.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Freshmen Only – The dorms are great if you are a freshman. You make some BFFs and stay up way too late every night. "You're only a freshman once." After that, you must live off campus if you want any kind of a social life. The dorms are a bubble within the Provo bubble.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love It – This school is so fun. It's really what you make of it, though. You have to balance schoolwork and social activities; overall it's a awesome place to be.

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.
