3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are great for social life because there is always something going on almost every night but they are small and they are dorms so you do have to deal with people and sharing a building. The dorms are about a ten minute walk from campus- or the main part. You get to know a lot of people in the dorms so it's really fun but you are almost never alone.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are computers available to rent as well as many computer labs on campus that are very accessible as well as places for print jobs and printing and printers available in numerous buildings and many of them can be found. There is reliable wireless access in every building.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The city is pretty small so I feel like everything is accessible for the most part. There are shuttles that can pick you up as well as taxis somewhat close. I have no experience with the taxis but I imagine they are not difficult. Lots of places are walking distance or biking distance and close by is a frontrunner train that can take you to many other major cities.

3 College Student

Campus Dining: The Cannon Center can be pretty bad on some days, but some days it rocks, and the Creamery has a lot of options for those who cook their own food.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: BYU doesn't see many accidents, and the police on campus are usually on top of things.

4 College Student

Facilities: BYU has some of the greatest facilities in all of the United States.

4 College Student

Facilities: Lots of successful varsity sports teams and club teams. Nice people, with some fun things to do.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: The town itself is pretty average, but a lot of people are nice, and there's usually stuff to do.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Depends on price you are willing to pay in the end

2 College Student

Parking: Parking is a very bad thing about campus, no space

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Your average mid-sized college town, fast food etc

3 College Student

Transportation: People usually walk, cars are for long distance.

3 College Student

Nightlife: LDS school = few wild parties, students are fun.

2 College Student

Scholarships: <16% of students get financial aid besides loans.

5 College Student

Academics: Exercise Science is a popular major for sure.

5 College Student

Academics: Prof. control a lot, lots of competition too.

3 College Student

Computers: The computers are mostly Apple, and work well.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Heritage Halls (new) is really amazing, it's kind of like a hotel, and the people are great.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: There are benefits to the dry weather, even though I was used to humidity. I don't like the snow, it is there forever, and the weather will sometimes change in the blink of an eye. It's pretty hot during the summer and cold during winter, but nothing too extreme.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like BYU. It is affordable, provides a great environment, there are lots of opportunities to challenge yourself and achieve. It also has a great reputation for job placement, which is really helpful. I have some issues with the culture here and the lack of diversity. I also don't love the location and the fact that the campus is so far from the downtown area. I have had a good experience with classes and professors, I have made many interesting friends - something which I did not expect.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are tons of attractive people on campus. Most people are friendly and outgoing. The main characteristic they share is the fact that they are religious. A misunderstanding of the principle of modesty as part of their religion may be the reason why most of them lack a sense of style. People have many interests, which makes them well rounded and good conversationalists, most of the time.

College Sophomore

Transportation: I've never used campus provided transportation.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: While I am sure there are individuals who experiment with drugs and alcohol, these are very few. Most people adhere to the Honor Code, either because they feel that is the right thing to do, or because they don't want to get caught and expelled. The risk of getting caught is high. The drug scene is mostly underground. Peer pressure works to the opposite of the usual: if you are using drugs, you will probably be shunned. You can have a great time without drug or alcohol.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: A meal plan is expensive and no one ever uses it up completely. There are different places where you can get food on campus and you can even manage to put together a healthy meal. There aren't many late night options.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved campus housing - especially the option to live in an apartment and not in a dorm! The only issue is that the nicest campus housing is far from campus if you have to walk. The dorms seem nice and clean, there are older buildings and newer ones, depending on what you can afford.

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.
