3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Provo mostly has chain food places, though there are some nice restaurants. There aren't student discounts in most off-campus restaurants.

Nightlife: Always campus events going on. Various performances from BYU students and from touring groups.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have sororities or fraternities at BYU. This doesn't apply.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: A lot of school spirit when it comes to sports. A lot of support for football, basketball, rugby and other sports events.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: BYU does have an honor code policy, however students are made aware of this during the application process and agree to it before applying. It adds to the great spirit of the campus, though some students can be very self righteous about it. It doesn't affect your learning experience negatively. Lowers rates of partying and increases the focus on academic and service pursuits.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are great scholarship and grant opportunities. Make sure to fill out your fasfa and apply to any scholarship you think may fit you.

Diversity: (Almost) everyone at BYU has the same standards because all (or most) are LDS and have grown up learning the same values.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's some of everything, There's something for everyone. You'll find what you like, no need to worry.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have only lived in one place so far. I'm living on campus this year, so I don't know a whole lot, but I do know that it has been frustrating to try and find someplace that everything is good, like parking, distance from campus, cost, size... it has been kind of hard to find someplace that everything is satisfactory.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's probably a really great town to get around in, but I am just not a fan of bigger towns like this. I like smaller simpler towns that aren't so overwhelming and less traffic. There is always a lot to do though. There are a lot of places you can go, a couple malls, places to eat, pizza, (YUM) and plenty of places you can go with your friends.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's really hard to get a scholarship for your first year. I didn't get one, as well as many other freshmen. I think I have heard that you have a better chance at getting scholarships the next years.

Weather: It's great in the late spring, for the most part, the winters are snowy and cold. If you're from Utah, it shouldn't be any different from what you are used to, (haha) depending on where you are from in Utah, anyway.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The honor code at BYU is usually already a part of everyone's life. Since it is composed of modesty, language, honesty, etc., people don't have a hard time following the rules since it has been a part of their lives all their lives.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Nobody every drinks or does drugs on campus, or VERY rarely, since it is an LDS school. Everyone has high standards and chooses not to participate in those sorts of things. People make good choices and have a good time without using those things.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I usually feel pretty safe when walking around on campus. I do get a little more nervous when it's dark, but nothing has happened, so I have always felt safe when going to and from classes.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I haven't gone to many games, but they are usually really crowded, lots of people going to have a good time. It's really fun.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: It's average. I don't have a car, so I don't usually go around town, since everything I need is within walking distance. I usually find a ride with someone if I want to go somewhere.

College Freshman

Computers: I haven't really used computers at school other than my own. I also use a printer in my apartment so I don't have to print elsewhere. I do use the internet on campus, and sometimes it can be kind of slow and hard to connect to, but usually it's pretty normal.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a lot of computers available at the library, but the library is kind of far away from other buildings, so if you need to print something in a hurry, it is kind of difficult. There are a couple of computers for printing outside some of the larger classrooms, but those do not run very quickly. Some of the best computer labs are in places that not many students know about, which makes it convenient for the students who do know about it because there is plenty of room for them to work.

Weather: The weather is often very nice, despite the cold winters. It doesn't snow too much, and it is only very cold for a couple of months. It starts warming up around March and it is very nice after that. The heat is very dry, and the cold is pretty dry, too.

Off-Campus Housing: It really depends on where you live. Some apartment complexes are very old and not very appealing, while others are newly refurbished, with swimming pools and hot tubs. It is us to the customer on where and how they would like to live.

Campus Strictness: For freshman, there are very particular visiting hours, which makes it difficult to spend time with people past a certain hour of day. The Honor Code is upheld highly, and it makes for a positive atmosphere.

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.
