4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There aren't too many things to worry about with safety on campus so they police are few, but they sure do a good job handing out parking tickets and catching people trying to steal books. I feel completely safe on campus and could walk around during the middle of the night without being worried.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Too many people here stick to the main restaurant chains and don't see the diversity that truly is part of Provo. There are many restaurants from Central America, South America, Europe and Asia. You just have to find them. The quality of the food varies, but thats how it is everywhere you go. The cost is decently cheap to average cost.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: P-Town is full of the typical things to do, which is great if you like that, but things that really break the box are hard to find. However due to the lack of diversity in the nightlife, many students take it upon themselves to find thing to do with their own group of friends. If you know the right people, there is always something great to do on the weekends.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Being that this school is a private, religious based institution, it has all the rights to in force its high standards included in the honor code. It may seem restrictive at times, but it really helps to keep a well rounded life, and stay successful in our studies.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are many people studying exercise science so it is easy to take similar classes with groups of friends and form good study groups to ace the classes. The workload is definitely heavy, but it prepares us better for graduate school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are alright. Nothing special but I suppose it is good for the average freshman. The dorms keep things simple and allow for a good structured way of living and doesn't distract from studies, and are close to all the buildings on campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Being that we have a dry atmosphere, the climate tends to change in quite drastically. It can be cold and snowy in the morning, and then all the sudden warm and sunny in the afternoon. The climate is very bipolar.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity at BYU is about as diverse as my socks. We do have quite a few international students but its mainly just a bunch of white LDS folk. Although that said there still is diversity, you just have to dig around to find it.

Campus Housing: I hated living in the on campus dorms. There was always some sort of noise or screaming going on. The RA's are terrible. The other students are terrible. The food is nasty. Overall, it sucks!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I hate my current apartment and the managers. It's very poor quality, mainly because the building is 40+ years old; there is also a large quantity of mold in my apartment. The managers are difficult to contact. The price is too high for the quality of living the apartment complex provides.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: You can usually find some sort of party or gathering going on somewhere in Provo.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining is alright, I guess. Mainly just the regular fast food chains.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I've just applied to the nursing program, and it's very difficult to get accepted. It would be better if they could expand the program, or make it so that it isn't mainly GPA based.

College Freshman

Majors: I've never had an internship.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I've totally heard the urban legend that if your roommate dies, all other roommates get A's, which would be nice, but I think I'd prefer to keep my awesome roommates.

I work at the MTC and it's a great job;it's my most favorite job I've ever had.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: It's fine, I'm indifferent to athletics and such.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't exist at BYU.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Taking drugs are against the Honor Code.

College Freshman

Transportation: I've only ever used my own car, and my own two legs.

2 College Freshman

Parking: There are no places to park near campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Too many students apply, few get scholarships.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are lots of computer labs available in almost every building. Sometimes you might just need to know where to look. The internet isn't so great outside, but I've never had a problem with it inside buildings except in the basement of the JFSB.

Weather: I personally hate extremes. It's really cold in the winter and really hot in the summer.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not very many options, just your basic fast food

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.
