College Sophomore

Majors: Psychology is an open major

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The psych department is great, super helpful for the most part, although the PSYCH 101 class everyone's required to take is kind of a waste of time in my opinion. But other than that, the major has a lot of options and is designed to help you get into grad school.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Not as cold as I thought it would be. Winter semester was very manageable coming from a warm-weather climate.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of affordable off-campus options close to campus.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The visitation rules for the dorms are ridiculous.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is virtually no drug use at BYU.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We have great sporting events and a huge diversity of intramural sports for people to participate in

5 College Freshman

Academics: We have fantastic professors that are understanding and want to help. The coursework is rigorous but doable. Most classes require a good deal of effort

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are great places to discover and there is something for everyone to enjoy

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a huge diversity of different ethnic foods and hole-in-the-wall places to try

4 College Freshman

Computers: The wireless availability could be improved for personal computers, but there are plenty of computers available to use on campus

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: This is not a party city. There are some, but not many

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus is very strict in enforcing its policies of no drinking, drug use, and other honor code related topics. This ensures a more wholesome campus

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have a great program that is set up well to get help from others and to get information about careers.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a great variety of places to choose from to fit many budgets and preferences. The closer a complex is to campus the more expensive it is. There are some expensive places that are higher end. Some places are overpriced for their quality.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life here

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Public transportation is relatively expensive. There are some shuttles to campus for select apartment complexes. Many students either walk or drive their own car

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: This usually occurs under the radar and very few people participate.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is free, but most tends to fill up quickly after about 9 or 10 in the morning. Undergrad student parking is also a ways off from the main campus. Off campus parking is very strict and prone for getting booted or towed.

3 College Junior

Diversity: A certain type of people are attracted by BYU. That's just that. It's not BYU's fault. The admissions board is JUMPING for diversity and students from different backgrounds, but it's located in Utah, with TONS of members, and tons of racially alike people. It's really not their fault. Economically you get kids from ALL over though.

5 College Junior

Academics: Academically it's a challenging and rewarding school that gets it's grads INTO careers! I love that about it. I've had so many meet and greets in my major with the biggest names in my industry, and they provided those chances.

4 College Junior

Majors: I love my major (property/Facility Management) but it was a royal pain for my wife. She wants to be a motivational speaker and singer, and couldn't find a single major that actually allowed her to study what she needed.

5 College Junior

Majors: Most of the competitive programs at BYU have a rigorous application process, but if you use the school resources, the counselors, and the opportunities given...it's not all that hard to get in. You have to be willing to work.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: Anything you want you can find, even if you're a non-mormon. There's so much local night life in Provo, that you can find the museums and stuff, or great date places, dancing, or bars if you're looking for that.

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.
