Health & Safety: My only concern is that the health center is pretty far from

A lot of housing and quite far to walk

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There's tons to do if you just seek out the fun

Campus Strictness: You sign to follow the honor code. If you want to party and be obnoxious you can go to plenty of other schools.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The winter is kind of bleh- but if you like snow sports you'll love it. Also spring summer and dall are great for outdoors stuff!!

Computers: My only complaint is that in the basements of some buildings the wireless and connection are seriously lacking

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing is pretty decent. There's a ton to choose from so it mostly depends where you choose to live

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Provo is a pretty good place to be. You have to make it fun though. Most people go on hikes, or go to Moab, or other outdoor activities to get away.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking is always a hassle, but you can find a spot if you go to the right places at the right times.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life, so you could say that it's the worst.

3 College Junior

Weather: Spring and Fall are fun times of the year. Everyone is happier at that time. Winter is depressing though.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Make sure you have a car. Otherwise, you will feel trapped on campus with nowhere to go.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: The parties are generally pretty fun. There are no bars really, so you don't have to worry about that.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Prices vary a lot, and you get what you pay for. Most of the housing that is decent costs quite a bit, so do research before making a decision.

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.
