4 College Junior

Academics: Some of the professors are annoying, but you get that at any school. It is generally easy to get into the classroom of a good professor.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Good, clean fun all around. Teachers in the specific program classes are really awesome.

4 College Junior

Computers: Some of the buildings on campus have dead spots for wi-fi, which gets annoying. Otherwise, for the most part, you can get a connection.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very helpful and nice. Most everyone loves to have a clean, good time!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Get it done early! Even if the deadline isn't until March, do it early so you won't rush the process. If you have contact information for any departmental scholarships, go meet them in person or at least email them. They are so willing to help you sort through information that you shouldn't include in the essay, or help you figure out what's missing. They'll help you know your chances of winning the scholarship, and anything else you might want to know. If it's general university scholarships you're trying for, still go ahead and talk to someone. It's so worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: For the most part, I feel fairly safe on campus. There is some theft, as in all larger cities, but for the most part the people on campus are fairly honest and will turn in lost or forgotten items to the Lost and Found. And as a girl, you always have to be cautious when walking alone at night, but the pathways are very well lit, with call boxes placed frequently along them. And, if you are feeling especially nervous, for whatever reason, you can call campus police and they will happily escort you home.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: We have an Honor Code that the school takes very seriously. There are no drugs or alcohol on campus, and everyone is very happy about that. If they are used on campus or in campus-approved housing, the student can get suspended or expelled depending on the severity of the honor code violation.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On-campus housing, with one exception, is very close to classes and the library and the student center. There's a very social atmosphere, and you get to know those in your building very well. Though the cost varies, you tend to get the most bang for your buck.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school, from everything to the atmosphere to the classes offered. And there are so many opportunities to branch our and try new things - clubs and campus-wide activities. We celebrate the Chinese New Year and there are culture nights, and there are always opportunities to find out about comedy shows and sports clubs. And because of the Honor Code, you don't have to deal with drunks in class or anything like that.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most guys and girls dress fairly well here, especially so with the girls. And there are many very good-looking people here. I have noticed that a lot of the more average-looking people tend to carry themselves well, so that is not as important.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: On campus, there are some very good places to eat, but they tend to be expensive. The more inexpensive places are fast food or are okay but not fabulous.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: As a walking campus, all of the parking is around the edges of the main body of campus. There are two "layers" of parking spots, with the massive inner layer being staff-only parking. Student parking is always at least 10 minutes from most buildings, which is not horrible, but frustrating if the weather is bad or you're running late. Additionally, student parking is significantly smaller than faculty parking.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are many, easily accessible computer labs placed around campus. And, if you have a specific need, it is not hard to find a lab with software for photography, film, computer science, information systems, or language.

College Sophomore

Academics: I am still working on the prerequisites for my major, so I do not know what the program is really like yet, as the topics covered by the prerequisites are fairly broad. I am really looking forward to it, however.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: We have so many great professors from all around the world here, so as students we are lucky enough to rich supplement of cultural experiences as well as career-related ones. Add that to the carefully constructed curriculum in each major, and as a student you come out of each semester bursting with new knowledge and understanding.

5 College Junior

Transportation: The transportation options are great. There are buses that run timely and the Front Runner train is fast and can take you to Salt Lake.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would definitely chose to go to BYU if I had to make decision again. It has made me a better person, taught me how to work hard, and I've met tons of great people.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Provo has a great local atmosphere. There are lots of activities that go on in town. Provo is a pretty safe city--there is very little crime. Local attitude toward students is very positive.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are lots of on campus dining options. There is something for everyone.

5 College Junior

Weather: Provo is great because we get to experience great warm summers and great snowy winters.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of restaurants and dining options in Provo.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many different apartments available to students in reasonable distance from campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus is strict as each student has to agree to live by what we call the Honor Code. Students agree to be honest, modest, and abstain from drinking alcohol or doing drugs.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Students and the community are very involved in BYU athletics. All sports are supported and have a packed audience. School spirit is amazing here. People love BYU and show their love for it.

5 College Junior

Academics: BYU has an amazing advertising program--one of the best in the country. The program is creative and unique. Internships and job opportunities are great for those in the program.

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.
