5 College Student

Athletics: Way Fun to Watch! I've enjoyed watching BYU's sports teams play ever since I was little. I love the vibe I get when I go to the games. The Athletic Department has enjoyed quite a bit of success in the past year, and I appreciate the integirty of the players.

5 College Student

Facilities: Inviting Atmosphere – In general, I appreciate how positive of an atmosphere BYU has. I think the people there are friendly and want to learn. Overall, the students at BYU are just very strong characters, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Great Place to Focus on Studies – Fun atmosphere focused on achieving goals and becoming the best you can be. Plenty of activities going on all the time. Great Fine Arts program with programs and concerts all the time.

Parking: There is not a whole lot of parking, the close spots are for graduates, and staff, which is fair, but everywhere else is far, and not enough. thats for if you drive though, if you live close enough, you can just walk

2 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: the nightlife here can be social, only when its nice outside, during fall and winter its too cold to want to go around to places.

Off-Campus Housing: BYU has a great education system. Everything gives you a challenge which makes you push yourself. That push gives you better attributes in life, and a gain in knowledge.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Not Fantastic, but Good Value – Some of the on-campus housing needs rennovation, but none of them are falling apart. for what you get, it is a very good deal

College Student

Greek Life: No frats, no sororities. Greek life is not part of BYU at all. There are some random Greek kids in their little organizations, but I have never met one, seen an event of theirs, or heard much about it in the 6 years i have been there.

College Student

Greek Life: None. Greek life has no role in the social scene because it does not exist and that is a really nice thing.

College Student

Nightlife: There are no bars and clubs around here. We don't drink; its against our honor code. Campus parties are probably not what every other college student is experiencing but we have fun.

College Junior

Greek Life: BYU does not believe in the Greek system, so it's nonexistent here. However, each school (i.e., political science, psychology, etc.) has a national Greek group that they participate in. The amount of participation varies with what school you are going into.

College Junior

Nightlife: On-campus parties are usually kind of lame, so if you're going to go, make sure you have a fun group who will make the best of it. Otherwise, party on your own territory.

College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at BYU. Sometimes you feel like you are missing out on that part of the college experience, but since the school is internally organized by church wards, you retain many of the benefits of formal associations like fraternities and sororities.

College Student

Nightlife: There is no alcohol on or around BYU campus, but there is a lot of stuff happening on campus, so you never have to worry about not having anything to do at night.

College Student

Nightlife: Night life is usually visiting other apartments. Single student housing has visiting hours for member of the opposite sex (9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Fridays). There's not too much to do after 10 or 11 p.m. unless you like to play in the park. There are some dance clubs, but not too many (Salsa Chocolate near the school, Studio 600 in Salt Lake City about 40 minutes away).

College Student

Greek Life: There is virtually no Greek life at BYU.

Niche User

Academics: The professors are excellent! I really feel that they are people I can trust and speak with if there is anything I need to talk about. They have always taken care of my needs.

Niche User

Academics: A nice thing about BYU is that it's a very undergraduate-oriented school. The professors are very willing to speak with the undergraduate students, as well as the graduate students.

Niche User

Academics: One thing you probably hear people say the most about big schools is `why do you want to go to a big school, with big classes, where you get less attention?' Well, my large classes are actually my favorites, because the teachers do crazy things in them. In one class, the teacher brought in garbage cans full of snow, and we had a snowball fight; in chemistry, we blow up things in class!

Niche User

Academics: Teachers at BYU are awesome, and they really want you to succeed. They provide a peaceful and spiritual learning environment and hold office hours where you can go and talk to them; they really do love to see their students.

Niche User

Academics: BYU has some of the best professors in the fields of business, accounting, law, religion, history, and political science. Some of the teachers in these departments are considered to be just as talented as teachers at Harvard and Notre Dame.

Niche User

Academics: Brigham Young has great teachers that really seem to care about all their students, but class sizes are huge!

Niche User

Academics: I have never come across a bad teacher since I've been here. They are all intelligent, fun, flexible, and concerned with your progress in their class.

Niche User

Academics: Most of the professors at BYU are extremely good. They really know their stuff and are very anxious to help the students get it, too. The majority of professors at BYU are dynamic, engaging, and appreciative of student feedback, all of which make for excellent classes. This is not to say, however, that all the professors at BYU are wonderful; some are actually quite ridiculous.

Niche User

Academics: The vast majority of my teachers have been exceptional. One or two, here or there, exhibited some flaws, like an excessive attachment to bland homework projects or slightly boring lectures, but I have found that, overall, my teachers are good friends. In particular, their lectures tend to reach beyond informational and educational, to exhibit an inspirational quality that develops a greater love and appreciation for the topic. This might sound like inflated praise, but most of my professors and classes at BYU have been superior. Most professors, as well as being passionate about their teaching material, are also approachable, friendly, and very willing to meet with students to discuss concerns, ideas, and future plans.

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.
