2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is not conveniently near campus

2 College Junior

Weather: Cold Kills – Half of your time in fall/winter terms is a blzzardy, cold, nasty mess. It's very inhospital, especially if you're coming from a place like California. The fall and spring and beautiful, but I'm not sure it completely compensates for the winter. In winter its hard to find things to do and stay active or happy.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Nice but Inconvenient – Many of the facilities on campus are nice, but their availability is very inconvenient. They are often reserved for sports teams, so it can be difficult to find a time when you can use it. The gyms have older equipment that is at best frightening and at best dangerous to use. The food selection at the coguareat is very limited, and expensive compared to places within walking distance to campus. The library is amazing and has so many services available beside just books - including multimedia services for transfering or editing video.

3 College Junior

Computers: Old and Busted – The computer labs are usually pretty busy, and aren't the fastest machines, but the public access printing is very convenient. Scanners are usually available - but beware of using your flashdrive. Viruses are sometimes transmitted this way.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Bus Systems Are Great – Parking can be a hassle on campus and many students go without cars. The buses run all over Provo, and a bus leaves the university every ten minutes.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There aren't any Greek housing or social things around campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mimi's Cafe – Mimi's has a great selection of foods that are delicious! The pricing isn't to bad for a nice night out and the staff is typically very nice and friendly. Sometimes the wait is too long but the food is worth it.

5 College Student

Campus Strictness: Honor Code – BYU has a strict honor code and they enforce their students to honor it. They also make sure that every student who applies to BYU must agree to the honor code.

5 College Student

Drug Safety: Drug Free – Drugs and drinking are not allowed on the campus so there for the is no problem with any drugs.

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: It Is a Peaceful Environment. I have visited BYU a couple of times and it is very peaceful to walk around the campus. It is a clean and friendly environment.

Parking: Extremely Overcrowded! Too many students for the amount of parking spots available.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Its Religious – I love the religious environment on campus. Most everyone is of the LDS faith and it makes for a great experience. There are so many people from different ethnic background and also different religions. It helps the students to become more tolerant of others and their beliefs.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It Is Fun, but Not for More Than a Year – The Helamen Halls dorms are nice facilities. The try to promote a social environment and make things fun. The only problem is the confined space. I had a good experience, but am definitely excited to move into and apartment.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Overall It Is Good but Could Be Better – The options in the food court aren't great, but you make do. The food in the Cannon Center is usually pretty good and they have several different restaurants around campus that give a bit of variety. Overall it is good but could be better.

4 College Student

Computers: Widescreen Monitors, easily integrated access with student ID, excellent print services (through Pharos), and flat panel televisions outside each lab show number/location of open computers. I couldn't live without a laptop, but it seems like it'd be easy to do so if you were so inclined.

4 College Junior

Transportation: In front of the school LDS Business College, run the Utah Salt Lake City TRAX a train that branches all through down town and conects with the bus rought and major shopping locations, the library, and off campus housing.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The Feel of the People – The people were dressed in casual to business attire on any given day. Clean, well kept, and conservitive was the style. Modesty is a very pip standard and very religious and strictly adheared to. Common intrests were in fun recreational activities, nothing wild or disrepituable. Relations were often between very freindly to polight. Everyone was cheerful, everyone wanted the best for themselves and those around them. Peaopel were positive, no one complained, or if they did complaine, others would come try to help or confort them. Very strange people, very happy.

3 College Junior

Academics: I went to LDSBC which is a branch off of BYU for generals. There I took all my basic classes, and sme remedial classes which I needed for math. The work load was very reasonabl, and I always had time to complete all my studies. My professors were very good at providing one to one instruction when needed. My favorite class was acting.

3 College Freshman

Weather: BYU Provo is right next to the mountains and consequentially gets a lot of interesting weather with four very distinct seasons.Winter gets the usual snow but BYU is very good about clearing walkways and roads. The campus itself it very well kept and beautiful so during spring and summer months everyone hangs outside, but beware it's been known to be 70 in the morning and and then snow a couple inches in the afternoon.

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They're Serious About the Honor Code – BYU is a great school known for it's upstanding kids and they want to keep it that way. Consequently, if you are caught doing anything against the Honor Code you might not get an ecclesiastical endorsement at the end of the year and therefore won't be able to come back to school the next year. Things that will get you kicked out include cheating, drug usage, and alcohol abuse. One-time offender can be enough.

Drug Safety: A Clean Campus – I have never seen anyone use drugs, talk about drugs, or talk about anyone talking about drugs. I'm sure it must happen but not anywhere close to openly. They only way you would come into contact with is if you were hanging out with the wrong people. I would same the same about alcohol. Very few, if any, parties are centered around drinking. If so they're not publicized.

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.
