3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Because this is a religious institution, the parties are wholesome. The music is still good, but this would never be considered a Party School. Drugs and alcohol are prohibited by the school. So, if you want good, clean parties, it's a great school. If you want crazy parties, choose a different school.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors and teaching assistants are amazing and will offer any help you need. They are very understanding and helpful. If you do poorly, its your own fault for not utilizing the resources they have available.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers are very easy to access and there are usually computers open throughout campus. It is never really an issue.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my program. The University is very open about the major and its requirements. There are multiple resources available to students in every program to make sure that they are on the right path. I would definitely do this major again because it opens up many career opportunities for me that I would otherwise not have. I intend to become a lawyer someday. After Law School, I do not have many concerns about finding a job in my field. We always need more lawyers.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: It was rather easy getting into my program. I declared my major in my application to the University, so I did not have much of a process to go through. There are not many tips I would give except for the fact that it is much easier to get into a major if you apply with that major in mind. It is harder to choose a major once you are in the school.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security is constantly roaming campus to ensure that the students remain safe. There are also police call boxes located throughout campus so that students can get help in case of an emergency. The campus police respond very quickly and make sure that no one gets hurt.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is very difficult to get a scholarship unless you are from a minority group or you have a really good GPA. However, they offer a lot of financial aid to students and tuition is rather inexpensive for the value of education received at this school.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather has been rather cold, but the mountains are extremely beautiful when they are snow covered. Sometimes, I'd much rather stay in bed and watch a movie with the snow falling outside, but they are constantly keeping the sidewalks and roads clear so that students are able to attend classes.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great because we are so close to so many other people that finding friends is not difficult. The social environment is very accepting and everyone is invited to attend the events held by the housing department.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: It is a religious school, so most students are part of that religion. The diversity of religion and sexual orientation are then not high because of the similar religion. However, there is a lot of economic differences, and diversity of personal beliefs that are all tolerated. There is little to no discrimination between the students because it is a very accepting University.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot of things to do around the city.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of variety and the costs are okay.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Computer labs are great they just get super crowded during testing periods.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major! I would do it again. I want to be a dentist. I am mostly concerned about getting into dental school.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I didn't have to apply. It is an open major.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I don't use it too much but it is fairly reliable it just takes forever to get anywhere.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Great new apartments but extremely expensive. Only freshman live on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Rent prices are off the charts for everyone. Parking is OK but gets worse as you get closer to campus. There are always apartments for rent however so it is easy to move around.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Very much a college town. Great for going to live in while at school but bad for family life.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus is strict but it keeps everyone safe. Maybe people can't "be" themselves as much as they would like but they know the rules of BYU before they come.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I go to movies, hang out with friends at a restaurant, work, and study.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Either I just have really great friends or there really isn't a drug or alcohol scene at BYU. Seriously, I have never heard of or seen anyone drinking or using drugs on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: BYU has a very safe campus. The surrounding area in Provo feels a lot less secure. BYU police do an excellent job.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The winter makes everything hard but the summer and fall are wonderful.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Very safe and the student body is typically pretty trustworthy. There were a string of rapes on south campus but they built it up and changed the landscape and lighting and it is much safer now. It can be dangerous to be by yourself on the river trail so just don't go there at night.

There are punks that steal things to robbery is the worst of the crimes and is more frequent then you'd hope at a church school. Also, the drivers in Utah and especially the college kids in town can be really lousy and I have almost gotten hit as a pedestrian quite a few times.

Overall though I felt very safe and taken care of on campus.

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.
