Diversity: Let's be real. It's largely white mormon kids. There are a lot of international students though, and a ton of students are fluent in foreign languages. It's not uncommon to hear to white boys speaking in Tagalog. It's pretty cool actually. There is diversity, but it's definitely less diverse than many other campuses.

Weather: It's too cold and too dry in the winter. But I'm from Texas, so maybe my opion is skewed... The weather is GORGEOUS in summer.

Athletics: GO COUGARS! Even if you don't give a crap about sports (like me), get a season pass and go to games with people. It's so much fun.

Health & Safety: It's a remarkably safe campus. Of course, things still happen sometimes, so don't be an idiot. Lock your door and don't go on dates with creepy men.

The student health center is super awesome and we're right by the hospital/emergency room.

Local Atmosphere: It's a cool college town. I wouldn't want to live here for the rest of my life simply because it is not the best city for my career aspirations, but it's a good town.

Drug Safety: We're all mormon. No one does that. For real. Ok, that's an overstatement. Not everyone is LDS and not everyone who is LDS lives like they are. Some people drink, and some people smoke pot, but it is a drastic minority, and it doesn't happen on campus. At all. Ever. It's awesome.

Campus Housing: Definitely live in the dorms (Helaman Halls) as a freshman. It's seriously the best. You will make so many more friends that way, and you may think you want to cook and clean for yourself your first semester but you will regret it if you do. Your whole life will be transitioning and you will plenty to worry about without that added stress. Leave that for later. It is also wicked close to all of your classes.

The other on campus housing is Heritage Halls (like on campus apartments). There is old Heritage and new Heritage. New heritage is massive, but when I lived there I felt like it was too big to keep clean if you have messy roommates. It also feels a little hotel-ish rather than super homey. If you prefer the more modern look then you might love it.

Old Heritage is, well, old, but it's way close to your classes and smaller for cleaning purposes. It's also homey-er and not to mention cheaper than new Heritage.

Majors: I am a MEDIA ARTS major aka FILM. You are only allowed to apply twice and a lot of people don't get in until the second try, if at all. I got in the first time, and it was a demanding application. However, if you really belong in the film industry, then the application should be fun. I really enjoyed it. Just don't leave it until the last minute if you ever want to sleep again.

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.
