3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Mass Aplication – The process for applying for financial aid is relatively easy. To be qualified however is another story. Most aid comes from academics.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The campus is not very diverse at all. The reason is the nature of the school; it is a privet religious school. It is mostly white LDS (Latter Day Saints) who apply and are admitted. Despite the lack of diversity there are a lot of cultural influences that are incorporated into BYU. This is partly because the most of the students here have served LDS missions to foreign countries and bring back with them a love for the culture and life of those they served.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Old but Fun – Freshman dorms at Brigham Young University are lacking in aesthetic appeal. They are very basic buildings made of cinder blocks. However, what they lack in looks they make up for in price and social interaction.

College Senior

Weather: Weather is weather. Anywhere you go, you will have to deal with weather. This is a poor question.

1 College Senior

Parking: There are just over 7,000 parking spots available to students. How many passes are issued? Just over 9,000. Does anybody else see the problem in this?

2 College Senior

Computers: Network Reliability and Speed – Or the lack thereof... I have been inside the main floor of the library and have not been able to connect to the wifi. The "no signal" zone is not just limited to the library, there are other places on campus that, if there is signal, the internet moves unbearably slow.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Security Control – the byu security is great. super friendly and always there when you need them.

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.

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.
