1 College Junior

Diversity: Ya, we're all basically the same.

College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have fraternities or sororities

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sometimes it's hard to get into courses, but there are a lot of courses and it gets easier as you gain rank.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Med schools love students from BYU and I think everywhere recognizes that the university has good students.

4 College Junior

Academics: It's really tough, but I think professional schools recognize that. It's manageable.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our school is crazy safe, the only school that would be safer is BYU idaho

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everybody is good looking and working hard, probably because of the standards set to attend the university.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police officers are very effective and efficient, and I believe there is a fairly low crime rate compared to other college campuses.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was skeptical when I first enrolled, but I love BYU and it's environment, though I'm not a fan of Utah in general.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a private university, BYU had a reputation for rigorous academics and so degrees are valued.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I personally am in an open major, so I didn't have to apply. But many of the majors are competitive and it can be difficult to get in.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My history department has a fairly low credit requirement, but the classes are pretty work intensive.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: BYU is very generous with scholarships. However, i'm in the unfortunate situation where my parents earn too much for me to qualify for pell grants, but not enough to actually help me pay for school. So money is tight.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing isn't ideal, but it's cheap so I suppose you get what you pay for.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: BYU truly had a beautiful campus, with probably thousands of employees devoted to upkeep and improvement.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: BYU, due to the strict honor code that bans all drugs and alcohol, as well as initiating a strict curfew, doesn't have much of a party scene. However, there are still plenty of campus events going on that it isn't difficult to find something to do.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: BYU is in sort of a sheltered area, namely Utah, but despite that there is plenty of entertainment options in the area.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is generally excellent, but meal plans are depressingly expensive. The food court has typical day food options, but nothing exceptional. Of course, you can never go wrong with BYU's famous mint brownies, or locally made ice cream.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: BYU is very strict in their policies, though of course the policies are in place for the benefit of the students, to protect common values and ensure each student has the chance to receive the best education possible.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Obviously BYU is not the most diverse of universities, but everyone is very tolerant of other beliefs and cultures.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone at BYU is very conscious of their appearances, probably because they're all hunting for a spouse. But the consequences are ideal, because everyone looks gorgeous and quite well put together.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: BYU is committed to an excellent academic environment, because they wish to encourage all young people to pursue higher education. They are very accommodating and the professors combine both a religious and secular curriculum seamlessly.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Although history is among the least credit-intensive majors at BYU, there ate all numerous resources, professors, and publications available.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are a big part of college life to go and support. Intramurals are also a big part of college life, most college students participate in some sport of their choice, and when games are not going on, many students are on the fields playing sports anyways.

5 College Junior

Diversity: I have already met many people of different backgrounds whether that be economical, political, or ethnicity. BYU encourages uniting everybody and there is so much diversity right here on campus. There are students from all over the world right in the same classrooms, the economy is a big factor in the life of students and all are trying to financially try to stay stable the best they can, but there is definitely different classes of financial differences. Hence the reason I looking for scholarships to afford the cost of schooling. The gender mixture I have seen is about equal, men to women. The religion is primarily LDS as it is a private college, but there are many people of other religious beliefs and the school does not push religious ideas on others, but respects the freedom of worship.

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.
