College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There Isn't Any – To attend Brigham Young University, students must sign an honor code stating that they will not use drugs or alcohol.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Not as Expected – It pretty much sucks except for the academics which is very good here

1 College Senior

Diversity: Its Not Diverse at All – BYU diversity is just fake diversity because even if they are of different races, they are all LDS members, so its a fake diversity. There are a quite few international students who are not LDS and its tough for them.

4 College Senior

Academics: Pretty Good – The academics here at BYU is pretty good. It keeps you a lot busy than expected. There is always something to do even if you take just 12 credits

3 College Freshman

Athletics: the football team is not doing well this year, but I'm not into sports.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The Food Around Is Too Expensive – there are good grocery stores, but it would be nice to have a wendy's or some other place that is cheap.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Very Strict, but Necessary – There is an honor code, if you do not comply with the Honor Code you will be subject to disciplinary action. It is absolutely necessary.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The people are wonderful, the most friendly I've ever met. And they have very noble interests, dress, the social life is very reserved and they maintain themselves focused on why they are at college

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are great places to eat, especially the Creamery on 9th, a grocery store as well as a great place to eat a quick hamburger or ice cream cone

1 College Sophomore

Parking: There are no costs to students to receive a parking permit, but parking is horrid. Also, public transportation for those who do not have cars can be VERY expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: We Abide by the Honor Code – As part of admissions into BYU, you are to commit to the Honor Code. Smoking, drinking and drug use are NOT allowed to students and if caught, are grounds for expulsion. The Honor Code makes for a great learning and social environment where everyone can feel safe, happy and healthy.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Student Life – There are many opportunities to serve around campus, which I appreciate. There are plenty of free activities, like dances and the International Cinema. Sporting events are very popular, as well are the various comedy troupes: Divine Comedy and Humor U.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: This is a very religious campus. Most of us are of the same denomination. We have weekly religious devotionals, most of which come from faculty. A lot of students attend. It is a private school owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Because of that, things trickle into almost all aspects of campus life. I love it.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: If you like seasons, it's great. hot, mild, cold, mild, hot. That's the way it goes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My Experience Might Be Diffrent – I lived in on-campus housing my freshman year, but it was a different set up- they changed married housing into dorm apartments. We were fairly far from campus and had to ride the bus. This made this housing cheaper than the other dorms and it was in really good shape compared to the others. Very tailored to freshmen and nice place to live.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Almost every building on campus can be considered beautiful. Very nice facilities and well kept grounds. Any of the facilities are open to the students. The Library is one of the best in the world. There are always students activities and help available for anything one would need.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Computer Space Is Good – There are many labs that any student can go to. There are usually open computers epically if you avoid the library and find a different building. There are also a few 10 min. computers that help for quick things that one might need. Most students have their own computer and WiFi so it is easy.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Old – Most apartments are old and not in the best shape, and the parking is terrible. There is never enough parking for residents and the Provo police make most of their revenue from parking tickets.

3 College Student

Diversity: Lots of White Students – I think I looked it up before and BYU is almost 90% white. Out of 30,000 students only 400 aren't LDS. But it is an LDS private school so I'm not surprised.

5 College Student

Campus Dining: Cannon Center – The Cannon Center is amazing. I miss it so much. It did seem repetitive but now that I'm living in and apartment and cooking for myself I would kill to have the variety of choices the cannon center offers.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Bored Policemen – This campus is so safe. I think the policemen here are bored so they have to come up with things to do, so they pull people over for riding their bikes to fast, or give people tickets for throwing a snowball, or for having a hammock.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: School Is Awesome – School is awesome. The quality of the education is great, and the cost is just what a college should be, nothing ridiculous. Campus atmosphere is great, and I love being here. Go cougars!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Prices Are High – Prices are high in Provo. Especially south of campus. The neighborhood is ok in the south, and it is close to campus, but it is expensive. West of campus is better in my opinion, that is where I live, and it is cheaper too.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally, I don't know any Greeks? But I would assume that they would be treated as equal as every one, due to the fact that there are all sorts of nationalities attending our school, and everyone embraces everyone like a brother or sister.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys and Gals – They students here at BYU are generally very friendly, and very social. There is a lot of good, wholesome activities going on all the time, and foster the perfect enviornment for dating and building friendships. Dress is modest, and casual normally. The students love to have fun and have millions of ideas that are spread around of great things to do.

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.
