1 College Junior

Nightlife: My school is the most stone-cold sober school in the nation; we don't party by normal standards. We watch movies together and play games. Most other social activities are centered around church-life.

Transportation: Students who live farther away have the option of the campus shuttles which leave twice every hour. Its about $100 a semester; overall, a good value. Public transportation is good and will get you to almost any place you want to go. Finding out bus schedules and the right bus to go on can be difficult and confusing.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe here. People who decide to go here sign an honor code. They agree to live by certain standards. Generally, I almost always feel comfortable on campus and with the people here.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Its hard to get financial aid. There is so much competition or scholarships and financial aid; its hard for an average person to get them.

Scholarships: I feel like everyone receives financial aid but me. So many people are here on scholarship and I have applied for many but received none.

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus yet but everyone seems to love it!

Academics: I am always being challenged, nothing is ever too easy. At the same time, nothing is ever unbearable.

Nightlife: I am able to have clean fun with friends who keep my standards.

Campus Strictness: Even though it can be strict, I think it is such a good implementation. Many schools have rules and then don't enforce them. People here know the rules and they are enforces and so people follow them, making the campus experience better.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love Thai/Indian food, and there's a lot of that around. But it's almost impossible to get decent Mexican/Chinese food. (Cafe Rio and Costa Vida don't count, although I love Costa Vida's burritos. They serve Southwestern food, not Mexican food. There's a difference.)

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The honor code is rigorously enforced. But that's literally what you signed up for when you decided to come to BYU. As in, you signed the honor code. But parking enforcement is predatory, and that sucks.

2 College Junior

Weather: I really hate the snow. And the inversion during the winter is brutal.

College Junior

Nightlife: The nightlife that a typical BYU student is looking for is not the same as most universities. Because we don't drink or use drugs, there are mostly parties in apartments and they tend to be small. It's usually some form of movie night or game night. But it's way better than BYU-I!

Off-Campus Housing: If you're a single student, you have to live within 2 miles of school, which stinks. This allows landlords to jack up prices, but wince the cost of living here is so low, it ends up being okay. Most rooms are shared rooms, which I know isn't typical. Most of the housing is pretty old, but there are some newer, nicer, more expensive places. They tend to have a reputation though.

Academics: I love studying economics! The faculty here are really great. And they all speak English, which in my field is very nice.

Scholarships: BYU already subsidizes our tuition, so it's difficult to get more funding. Most people lose their scholarship after their freshman year, and once you lose it it's almost impossible to get it again.

Local Atmosphere: Provo is a nice town. The fact that we have a temple just up the hill is great, and student wards are usually a lot of fun. But it could be more diverse and if things were open after midnight, that would be great.

Drug Safety: Drinking and drug use are against the honor code. The honor code is taken very seriously here. Almost all of the student's are LDS, and it is against what we believe to drink or use drugs.

Campus Housing: I lived in Heritage Halls, which is the apartment style on campus housing that was available when I was a freshman. They've torn almost all of them down, and I'm pretty sure the last of them are being town down by the end of the year. New Heritage, which they're building where Heritage Halls used to be is supposed to be very nice, although I've never been. Mostly freshman live in the dorms.

Greek Life: I don't really know what this is honestly.

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.
