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.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are very important for the social aspect of campus. During football season, that is the event of the weekend. During basketball season, everyone goes to the games during the week. It doesn't matter if you have to study for your chemistry test the next day. You are going to the basketball game.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms really aren't as good as living off campus. They can be expensive and very small. Only the freshmen live on campus.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I don't feel threatened at all on campus. Everyone is really nice.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The application is easy to do. It is just basically your GPA, and a few essays. It is, however, very competitive, and a very high GPA is required to receive a scholarship.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Things do happen occasionally but the police take care of it.

3 College Junior

Weather: I hate the snow in winter, but springs are beautiful.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The Honor Code encourages people to live a strictly moral life.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: People are very social within their wards. Everyone wants to get married.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love my program. I feel like I've learned things that are useful for both my life and career.

4 College Junior

Majors: My husband just completed a very well paid internship. It was long hours, but incredibly good experience.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of variety among the off-campus dining restaurants.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I never lived in the campus housing, but I work at the cafeteria that feeds those who live in the dorms and we feed them great.

4 College Junior

Transportation: There are a lot of options for those who live far away from campus. The only problem is parking fills up fast.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: No drugs are done on campus. Those who do use them are disobeying the school's Honor Code that permits them to attend the university.

College Junior

Greek Life: There are no fraternities or sororities at our college.

4 College Junior

Computers: The computers have great programs like Microsoft Publisher that I don't want to buy for my own laptop.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: When you get married and can get FAFSA, wait to change your name until after you have received it.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I married a guy here so they are pretty great! Honest and handsome.

5 College Junior

Academics: I receive quality education from instructors who care about their students.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are multiple sporing events to attend almost every week, and if you do not participate in varsity sports, intramural sports serve as a great outlet to play and play hard. Many participate to support varsity sports and also to play for themselves. Fan support is huge and not just by those who currently attend BYU but by many alumni who live close.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are plenty of labs scattered over campus and because many have their own computer, there are always some available for use. Printing is relatively cheap, and printers can be found here and there, however it's best to go to the library to print things out. Network reliability varies depending on the building. Im pretty sure BYU will be upgrading to Google Fiber pretty soon since all of provo is getting it, and that will be a huge improvement to the network.

4 College Freshman

Majors: My program is a pretty mainstream and popular program for those desiring to go to Dental or Medical School. The program is fairly difficult and challenging, but the challenge prepares us for the difficult programs and stress that will follow after graduation as we go to graduate school.

5 College Freshman

Majors: There are no types of requirements or restrictions that I know of, besides sitting down and talking to a counselor about your plan. There are a lot of classes that take time so starting freshman year is key to not getting behind and graduating after 4 or 5 years.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know a single greek person at BYU. Im sure they are living and well but the majority of those on campus are from the states, mingled with a few from every country in the world.

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.
