Academics: My professors have, for the most part, always been interesting, especially in the humanities, art history, and Spanish departments. Most professors make an effort to make things interesting for the students, and they also have decent office hours. I have had a lot of experience with teachers outside the classroom, and they have been quite helpful. Most of the professors really want to be there, and they want to see the students succeed.

Health & Safety: Security on campus is really good. I don't have any problem walking home from the library when it's late, even though I live far away.

Niche User

Health & Safety: BYU's campus is pretty safe, I guess. I know that if you ever have a problem walking home at night, there are blue boxes all over campus with a button you can push that calls someone to help walk you home. Honestly, though, I don't think that safety issues are a huge problem here.

Niche User

Health & Safety: Now and then, there's a report of someone getting followed on a jogging trail, but overall, campus is very safe.

Niche User

Health & Safety: Safety is a top priority at BYU. As long as you use common sense (for example, don't walk by yourself at night), you'll be fine. Everyone at BYU is so nice and helpful. It's very safe.

Niche User

Health & Safety: Most people will even turn in lost wallets and stuff like that. I've only been here one year, but I know that there were two rapes reported in the campus newspaper. If you're smart, though, our campus security is fine and the campus police are pretty good about things.

Niche User

Health & Safety: I've never known of anyone or anything really bad happening on campus, besides a stolen purse or something trivial.

Niche User

Health & Safety: On-campus security is great, although there are places around campus that students (especially girls) are told not to go to-apparently there are psycho people everywhere.

Niche User

Health & Safety: Provo has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation. BYU students participate in campus safety programs such as Safewalk, which makes sure that people don't have to walk home alone from campus at night.

Niche User

Health & Safety: There were some isolated incidents involving joggers who were being attacked on campus, but the joggers were unharmed, and the assailant was caught.

Niche User

Health & Safety: We have a 24-hour police force that patrols on bikes and in cars. You really do see them all the time, so it's not just something that they tell you to make you feel good about being here. The wards set up Safewalks with nice guys that will come of their own free will to walk you home from campus late at night.

Niche User

Health & Safety: They do have occasional problems around here in some of the darker, more wooded areas near campus. These problems are not common, though, and BYU is probably one of the safest universities in the country.

Niche User

Health & Safety: I like to strap on my running shoes at 11 at night and go for a jog through campus. I don't think twice about throwing on my headphones or running in the dark, because I know campus is a safe place, even at night. Of course it behooves students to take reasonable precautions to secure their property and personal safety, but crime on BYU's campus is virtually nonexistent.

Niche User

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, even late at night. I don't know any statistics about campus safety, but I never found myself in a situation where I was afraid for my safety.

Niche User

Health & Safety: Just be certain to walk around campus with a friend late at night. However, that's just common sense. The people here are pretty much trustworthy, though not everyone is perfect-even Mormons.

Niche User

Computers: Many computer labs are available, but they get quite crowded in the afternoons while school is in session. Bringing your own computer will make life easier-it's no big deal if you don't.

Niche User

Computers: In the past, I loved it when roommates brought computers that they let me use, but right now, I'm doing just fine using the computers in the labs.

Niche User

Computers: The network is great for surfing the Internet. The computer labs are always pretty full, unless you get there at the right time. If you have a computer or can afford to buy one, I would suggest that you bring one with you. It is a great help to have your own if you procrastinate (which I always do), because the library closes at midnight.

Niche User

Computers: You might want to bring your own computer so that you can do your papers and stuff at night in your dorm room or apartment. It will make life easier, unless you have trouble doing work where other people are playing.

Niche User

Computers: There are a bunch of computer labs with awesome new computers in them. I use them all the time! They are full at certain times around the end of the semester, or at random times during the day, but you if wait about 10 minutes, you'll get a computer. We have fast Internet access, and in the dorms there are Internet connections that block bad things, but that's no big deal.

Niche User

Computers: There are plenty of IBM computers on campus. There are network ports for you to hook a laptop to, if you have one. I'd recommend bringing your own computer anyway, since BYU has a strict firewall in place that blocks lots of Internet sites.

Niche User

Computers: Our network is good and usually fast. If you live in the dorms, I would recommend that you bring your own computer-a network connection only costs about $12 a month. If you want, you can rent an old, slow, but decent computer for $10 a month from the school.

Niche User

Computers: The computer labs in the library are usually crowded, but access-point computers (you can use them to check your e-mail) are set up all over campus, and there's usually no line for them.

Niche User

Computers: Computers are pretty easy to access here. There are certain computer labs that almost always have an open seat. There's a lab in the SWKT building that is not as crowded as the others. I would bring your own computer, though. It's just more convenient.

Niche User

Computers: BYU's library always has available computers, and [it's] open from 8 a.m. to midnight. Bringing your own computer would be helpful, but it is not a necessity-unless you use it 24 hours a day, like I do.

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.
