Academics: Amazing Music Staff – When I heard that Brigham Young University's Music School had a full conservatory-trained music staff, I couldn't resist going there! All of the teachers there are very personable, and they make you feel like you're worth something all the time. Classes start out with laughs and positive energy which makes the environment so enjoyable to be in.

Drug Safety: Drug Scene – My experience at BYU I have never seen the use drugs and the usage of alcohol one time, At BYU, we have the honor code and the presence of drugs and alcohol is unacceptable, if caught, it leads to suspension and/or dismissal from the school. The honor code creates a safe and drug/alcohol-less environment.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: My off campus housing experience has been great. The only complaint is you have to pay for quality. There is a significant difference in price so there are cheap options but to live comfortably you have to pay a steeper price. But comparable to other school its relatively inexpensive.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Safety & Security – At Brigham Young University I have always felt safe while walking on campus. Even at night, the campus has well lit areas for students to walk back to their car and/or buses. I feel like there is a great security system that the staff and professors are well aware of, that if something did happen I would feel comfortable to notifying any teacher. Campus police is in an accessible building and although I have never had a problem; when I went to visit there they were helpful and I always see them patrolling around campus.

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining offers several options are withing walking distance.

3 College Junior

Computers: Some Areas and Classrooms on Campus Do Not Have Wireless Networks – In classrooms where I needed to access the internet, no wireless network was available.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girls Are Gorgeous – Honestly the student body is awesome. The girls are beautiful and the guys are fun. Overall very good people attend.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Pretty Good but Way Too Expensive – I think the food is alright but terribly overpriced for what you get out of it.

4 College Student

Parking: Organization Is the Best – Students are fully instructed about parking and fees. BYU campus provides good spots for all people have the chance to parking according with their needs.

4 College Student

Greek Life: Greek students are seen like any other student. The feeling of been here at BYU, give us the idea that all differences are going to be respected.

4 College Student

Athletics: School Spirit – BYU has an amazing spirit when we talk about sports. Having the chance to attend the games show how BYU students are different and respect the other team.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Buses Are a Good Choice – The public buses are very affordable for a year pass through BYU and go pretty much everywhere you'll need to go. However, at common class hours they are sometimes crowded.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Private Religious University – Though it is a private and religiously affiliated university, the student body has representation of many religions and many different ethnicities. However, the diversity is a very small percentage and the majority is caucasian and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Campus Is Beautiful – The scenery of the valley, the mountains, in the nearby canyons and recreational areas, adds to the already beautiful design of the on campus landscaping.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Bored With Campus Food? Eating at the same couple laces everyday can get boring. But when you're sutck on campus, there aren't a lot of choices. At BYU, we have and amazing hot dog place just south of campus. It's made to order, tastes amazing, and they have a delicious special sauce! You've got to try J-DAWGS.

Overall Experience: Teaching You About Yourself – BYU might be strict, but all those rules help you get to know yourself a little better. It has helped teach me my limits, what I will and will not obey, what I really do want rather than what I would do if the oppurtunity presents itself. This school helped make me who I am today and helped me learn how to stand up for myself and be myself in any situation.

Campus Strictness: Restricts Your Life – BYU has a seriously tough honor code that each student is required to sign before applying to school: no drinking, no sex, no coffee, among other things, while enrolled at the schools. Fail to obey and you will probably find yourself on academic suspension or kicked out.

Weather: Variety Is the Spice of Life! Hot summers, to cold winters, but campus is always prepared for any type of weather. Plus, with the mountains nearby it always look beautiful!

4 College Student

Campus Dining: The new Cannon Center has lots of variety, and while every meal may not be to your liking, there's always plenty of choices! The CougarEat has enough options and is always pretty clean and efficient!

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Unique Culture – BYU has a very distinct culture. Being largely LDS, there are some weird customs and social norms that are really irritating. While people are really polite, once they find their niche or clique they don't branch out to meet new people much. The girls are definitely harder to get to, given their increased expectations and standard of living.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Weather is typical Utah weather, snow from late fall to mid-spring. Virtually no humidity, sometimes it gets a bit hot in the summer but it's not too bad. Those wishing to spend time outside have plenty of opportunity to do so after winter is over.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I haven't noticed a good number of Greeks at BYU. I'm sure there are some here, but the culture isn't prominent enough to really affect the campus much.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms Ok, Approved Housing Better – The dorms on campus aren't in the best shape but what can you expect from a bunch of freshmen. I lived in budge hall, a part of helaman halls and it was fine. There was always something to do and I had plenty of dorm space. Wasn't a huge fan of the bathroom situation. The off campus approved housing was much better because there was more room and better quality.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I feel like BYU has everything you could ask for. The library has recently been updated to include more services and an increased volume of books. The student center provides help with any question you could imagine and is the source of a variety of events and activities. Sometimes activities aren't well publicized or well attended. The campus is beautiful and provides a good atmosphere for learning.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Recreation Management – I feel like the program is structured in a way that encourages experimental learning and application of principles. The faculty is amazing in that professors are passionate, knowledgeable, interesting and effective teachers. Internships in the program almost always lead to successful job placement. The work load is challenging but manageable.

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.
