3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It's Just Okay – Not too much going on around campus at night besides individual parties and random events every now and then

5 College Student

Facilities: The school is like none on earth, the campus is clean, and the people are great, I love going to school at BYU!

4 College Student

Athletics: Many NCAA sports, almost a game every day! And the tickets are cheap if you get the season passes! The football games were awesome!

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: As I searched for off campus housing I found that there were many choices around, almost too many!

Local Atmosphere: Access to City Life and the Outdoors – Provo, UT is a great place to go to school. It is located just 45 minutes south of SLC but also less than 45 drive to mountains. It is very versatile city for college students who love the city but also the outdoors. BYU also holds many culture events allowing students and locals to embrace diversity.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Social Work Program – I was one of the last group of students to complete the Bachelor of Social Work Program at BYU. The program was wonderful. The professors were friendly and always willing to assist students in achieving their highest potential. The School of Social Work facilities were located in a very nice building with the newest technology making it easy and fun to learn. I was very sad to see the BSW Program canceled at BYU. It was a wonderful generalist program that prepared students to serve as social workers in the community and also prepared students for their MSW.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Nice pool,basketball courts, everything you would want

4 College Junior

Transportation: Bus and Car – There is a great public transit system that runs everywhere you need it to go and enough roads to get you anywhere.

2 College Junior

Diversity: Mostly White Folks – BYU has quite a few foreign-exchange students but we don't have a whole lot of diversity on our campus. There are lots and lots of young caucasians.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Great Food Options – There are great options for food on campus. There are dining halls with pretty solid menus and at the Cougareat you can get any major fast food including some you don't see everywhere.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great Campus – this is a great place. almost everyone has the same standards which makes it easy to be who you are. it is very academically oriented, but with many fun activities going on all the time.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: We Have a Clean Campus – there is basically no drug scene at BYU. of course there are people that use drugs or drink or smoke, but they are few and far between.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A Pretty Good Place When You're Hungry – there are plenty of places to eat around Provo. there are lots of fast food places and plenty of nicer sit-down restaurants and many ethics places. one of my favorites is called Tuscanos. its a brazillian barbeque place.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Two Words: Honor Code – The Honor Code is very important here, and if a person does not want to follow it, they do not need to attend this university. There are plenty of places that do not take a stand on moral issues, but this is not one of them.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: White, White, Super-White – While there are students from around the world, the vast majority of the students here are white. Since this is a private university with a strong affiliation with the LDS church, the majority of the students are also members of said church. It's a fantastic environment, but it's just not really diverse.

1 College Junior

Weather: It is cold and snowy from November until May. Doesn't get warm until end of June. If you don't like snow, you'll hate it! Class is rarely cancelled unless it is a really bad storm.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Get a Bike! Parking is far and limited, busses are good but aren't cheap, there is plenty of bike racks on campus and they are all right by class. All housing is within a 2 mile radius of campus so biking is best.

4 College Junior

Parking: Parking is far from classes and parking enforcement is ridiculous, but the permits are free for all students so can't really complain.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Good Clean Fun – Halo Parties and lots and lots of dating. Thank goodness for frozen yogurt.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I'm so glad that they have so many racquetball courts and everything is in excellent condition except some of the doors are small

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Lots of Dating – There are lots a opportunities for dating. I went on more dates than I can remember where I asked the girl during our first conversation.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Stone Cold Sober – No drugs. No alcohol. They are against the honor code and they are serious about enforcing it. I have never seen it in my four years here.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Not Just Football and Basketball – BYU has several teams in the Top 25. Docked for somehow always dropping the ball in football but basketball was awesome this year.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Choice – There are plenty of choices but my two favorites have to be J-Dawgs and Brick Oven. Both are located just south of campus. J-Dawgs was started by a former student and their secret sauce is awesome and Brick Oven has the best pizza I have ever tasted.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Unique Is an Understatement – To say that BYU is unique is to understate the differences. BYU has been called the nation's most "stone cold sober" campus several years running. Sobriety, I fear, often become a synonym for boring in modern parlance. It is certainly not boring. You will find a diverse set of experiences and wonderful opportunities at BYU if you take the time to look. I studied Post-Modern literature and liberal arts at BYU; liberalism at the most conservative school in the nation? Yes. And a liberal perspective that has challenged some of the most liberal institutions in the nation. BYU is a wonderful place to study, a great laboratory for growth and a comfortable environment for discovery.

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.
