5 College Junior

Facilities: Libraries Are Outstanding – Brigham Young's library is a magnificent tool for success! With five floors and countless rooms, students are able to thrive in their school work. Filled with computer labs and white board rooms, they are able to finish their work at a faster pace. Students are also able to reserve rooms for study for themselves or groups just online!

4 College Junior

Academics: Many Great Internship Opportunities Available. I am an Exercise Science major in the College of Life Sciences. It has been great to be in this major, as it completes a vast amount of the prerequisite courses one needs for post graduate schools in Health Care. The College of Life Sciences at Brigham Young offers many opportunities for continuing education and has different internship opportunities available.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Free from Drugs – My university has the Honor code which says that we are not allowed to drink, to consume drugs and to have sex before marriage. I know that for many people this is not acceptable and sometimes weird. But, for us it is a good rule. It maintains our standards higher than other universities. It makes a peaceful place to live and get to know amazing people.

4 College Junior

Academics: Easy to Get in Class – During Winter semester is the time to register for Fall classes. There are 30 000 students at Brigham Young University, a lot of people competing to get into a class. However, this is not a problem, the administration and technology stuff have done a great work with the web page to add classes. There is a good organization in the class registration web page. Each course is separated by departments making student's life easy.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Fun City – Provo is a fun city to stay and to have fun during Spring, Summer and Fall. Also, during Winter you can do fun activities with your friends because you can go to resorts to ski. In Provo is Brigham University which is a great university. They not only teach us about temporal things but spiritual things, too. It is really fun to live here. If you visit us you should hike the Y mountain.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Pretty Accepting – The people on campus are for the most part really accepting of other people. Everyone at BYU is pretty much the same religion so that's not really an issue, but you usually see people who are in the same major associating together, and I think it would be really cool to see a lot of interacting between the different majors.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Absolutely Amazing! The music program at BYU is absolutely amazing! They really know how to create and teach wonderful musicians who can accomplish a wonderful unity in their sound and their rhythms are precise. They are entertaining to watch and the teachers are so wonderful with the students. Truly an amazing program!

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Every Heard of the Mormons? Quality of nightlife depends on what you are looking for. If you are into partying, drinking, clubbing, and sex, you are about as far away from where you want to be as possible. BYU is NOT a party school. Therefore if you are a party-er, you will give BYU an F. If you are just looking for a good time, however, where the fun is clean, then BYU does alright. There are plenty of dance parties, outdoor activities, and things to do at night. The city of Provo isn't very big, and students tend to stick to campus for their fun. BYU has incredible performing arts, and so if you are into classical concerts, theatre, dance performances, and cultural events, BYU gets an A+.

4 College Senior

Computers: Sufficient for Our Needs – There is no real complaint about the schools computers. They are well maintained, the internet is very reliable. I have never had issues accessing the internet either wirelessly with my own laptop, or using a lab computer. There are usually enough computers to satisfy everybody's needs. At heavy use times such as midterms or finals, it can be hard to find a computer, but most of the time there is one available. Also, the labs on campus are well equipped with up-to-date software and student access is well provided for.

4 College Senior

Academics: Respectable Challenge – BYU is not the easiest school to get into. There are a lot of applicants and the acceptance rate is about 50%. Students who come here tend to be very academically driven, overachievers, and have high expectations. This is not a party school, most people don't come here to mess around. As a result, the competition is significant. The professors are good, and the curriculum is a challenge. The workload usually is pretty reasonable, and BYU has an awesome reputation worldwide as a highly respectable school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Great Balance – The closer dorms are smaller and can feel cramped at times, but they put you right on campus when you need to be. On the other hand the farther dorms are the perfect size, like a regular apartment, but they'll take some time to get onto campus. Take your pick.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Good Variety, but Not a Lot of Health – You can eat at a good variety of familiar places on campus, from Teriyaki Stix to Subway, but if you're hoping to find a balanced meal, you'll really need to do some digging. Then again, you could always bring it yourself...

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors Openly Help Discover Your Future – I'm in Brigham Young University, and I've been very satisfied with my education thus far. I'm still searching for what computer related major I want to pursue, but all of my professors have been really warm, friendly, and helpful during that decision making process. I really feel that they open up very easily which has really help me be comfortable. If you get to know them on a personal level, they can do wonders for you when it comes to choosing a major, selecting your courses or finding your career.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Fan Support/ School Spirit – There is a huge fan base, all across the country and the world. Our athletic programs are continually increasing in national rankings. It's really fun to attend any sporting event.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Personal Safety – The campus takes the safety of its students very seriously. The campus is well lit, police officers and security personnel are very helpful. The crime rate is very low. Everyone in general feels very secure here on campus.

5 College Junior

Academics: The professors are some of the top in their respective fields. They truly care about their students and help them to succeed.

4 College Junior

Academics: I Can't Wait to Get Into the Magic Lab. BYU offers some amazing opportunities for the senior capstone projects for Engineering majors, I am really impressed.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Great College Town, Fun Local Stuff to Do! Provo is the perfect college town because it provides the perfect mix of having everything you need, and also giving everything you enough safety and breathing room to not be constantly suffocated by a large city. If you like that kind of thing, Salt Lake City is just 45 minutes away. Some of the world's best ski resorts are less than an hour away too, making this one of the best places I can imagine to spend 4 years of my life as a college student.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: An Incredible Experience – If you want a little of everything, without the partying, BYU is the place to be. I didn't want everyone's typical college experience full of drunks and partyers and BYU offers just that. There is challenges in academics, but nothing you can't handle if you study. There are all kinds of sporting events to attend, tons of campus events to attend, and religion incorporated in everything.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Great Experience for Freshmen Year – Not the best option for upperclassmen because its mostly freshmen, but it offers a great environment to adjust to being on your own for the first time.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Most of the year is shrouded in clouds and snow. If you enjoy skiing and snowboarding then the local resorts are good times. It's pretty cold and wet for most of the school year.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Not a lot going on outside of the individual apartment complexes. Each apartment complex has its own developed community where the students living there hang out and do a variety of activities.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: One of the top business schools in the country. Very good education degree options. Majority of professors are highly rated by students.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: You might as well walk to campus. It takes about the same amount of time walking as finding a parking space. Not very many places to park. If you need a parking space get there early.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Unique Atmosphere – BYU is a unique educational experience unmatched anywhere. Many students describe it simply as a feeling that is hard to explain but easy to experience. Book work is not the focus, but the complete individual now and for the future is. BYU's facilities are top-notch both academic and athletic.

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.
