3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of availability for off-campus housing, if you know where to look. You have to dig through a lot of the options before you find one that is in your price range, and relatively nice. It is expensive, but so is most housing. In some areas, parking is horrendous, but for my apartment, there is plenty of space available. The landlords are generally very accommodating to all needs. One of my roommates is in a wheelchair, and they specifically made sure that she would be comfortable in our apartment. The actual living space is not fabulous, but it works.

Athletics: Many of the students at BYU participate heavily in the sports here on campus. It's not essential for me, but I'm not a big fan of sports in general. People enjoy them and it creates a lot of BYU Pride.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I mainly walk to school, so it hasn't ever been a problem. The bus works quite well, though it is more than I want to pay.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: BYU is very homogenous in a lot of ways, but I have discovered a lot of the minority. It is a lot more diverse than would be expected at first blush. I have found many friends from a variety of backgrounds who all believe the same things that I do. It's a lovely campus and school. I find it wonderful that you can ask a professor a question regarding their subject and our shared beliefs and it isn't scoffed at or prohibited. The environment can take some getting used to, but once you understand it, it is a lot easier to deal with.

Overall Experience: I would not choose to come here again. There are way too many students. I have a very difficult time getting any questions answered -- I have not found any of the administrative staff helpful. The city is boring.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Its hit and miss. Most people are fairly friendly though.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Its pretty much impossible to find a computer on campus, especially at certain times of the day.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I usually feel fairly safe. After dark I'll usually ask someone to walk with me.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There are no special requirements to apply for a history major.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not done an internship yet so I can't judge.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload in history is intense. My advisor also has not been very helpful.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Really no transportation options. I wish there were more buses.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There's not a ton of diversity which is fine. There's plenty of chances to meet people

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: My only concern is that the health center is pretty far from

A lot of housing and quite far to walk

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There's tons to do if you just seek out the fun

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: You sign to follow the honor code. If you want to party and be obnoxious you can go to plenty of other schools.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The winter is kind of bleh- but if you like snow sports you'll love it. Also spring summer and dall are great for outdoors stuff!!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Apply! Apply! Even if it's your first year it doesn't hurt

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Not too bad, but if you have a car or bike you're probably fine

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you're looking for a good LDS community this is it. I have absolutely loved my experience at BYU

Parking: If you live too far to drive you should plan about 20 minutes to look for and walk to class

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.
