3 College Junior

Transportation: There is not really much more than public transit, but most people live close enough to campus not to need it.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It wasn't overly complicated as long as you can read and follow instructions.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: BYU has a fairly strict honor code and everyone that attends here knows that and agrees to live it before they come. So for those that complain about it, you know what you signed up for and there are plenty of other people that would like to be here if you don't. The honor code is a great benefit and should be a way of life not just a bunch of rules. Yes there are some kinks and unnecessary cultural things, but the benefit far out weighs the bad.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I never feel threatened or in danger on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Not much goes on in Provo unless you know people.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Very strict on a lot of the policies outlined in the Honor Code.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Not that diverse in terms of diversity but it is a private institution for the LDS faith.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: They need to update the wireless system I feel as well as work on extending the range so you have access in all parts of campus without fail.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: No alcohol or drugs for 99% of the school and if you are caught partaking you end up in serious trouble with the school.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: So many options to choose from with varying price and location.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's good for some people who like to go eat out and go dancing and things like that but not enough chill stuff like arcades and laser tag for my liking.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Cold in winter, hot in summer. Plenty of snow and rain in the appropriate seasons.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's an okay atmosphere from what I remember. I don't think people are overly great to students, but they aren't bad either. I don't remember a lot of shopping or museums in the area. There was great hiking not far away and even fishing in the canyon though, but you'd have to have a car to get to the fishing spots.

4 College Junior

Majors: This is a great program that will help me gain better employment, having an actual degree from an accredited university. It would be great if there were more variety in types of degrees available.

3 College Junior

Majors: It's pretty good. I get to work at my own pace, which is absolutely what I need right now. I do wish they would be more lenient in finding test-taking facilities closer to home. Also, it would be nice if they would allow test-taking facilities to use computers for essays. Some tests can have up to 3 hours of nothing but long-hand essays.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I remember quite a few places to eat that were fun and interesting. Prices were average and there wasn't many discounts for students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Although it was fairly easy to find housing, people are crowded into housing. We had 6 ladies sharing 1 bathroom. Six people to an apartment was uncomfortable, loud, messy and it was hard to study there.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: Since this is a religious school with strict policies, there really is none of the parties and nightlife found at other schools. Not everybody wants this.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The only thing I remember is that the bus system was available, but that was all. It was hard to get around other than that.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It's nice to have standards and not have excess partying of others ruin your studies.

3 College Junior

Computers: I am answering these questions based on my attendance at this university years earlier.

3 College Junior

Academics: It's pretty nice to be able to have this program at our school. They are allowing me to finish my degree via the internet, which I believe is nice that they work with their students to accomplish their goals.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football seems to be very important here.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Winters are hard to go through and make it difficult to want to leave your apartment to go to class. Spring/Summer/Fall is beautiful though.

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.
