3 College Senior

Majors: I haven't needed to particpate in an internship for my major. Doing academic research is more important for me. It seems like my friends on campus have all been able to obtain their necessary internships.

5 College Senior

Majors: I have loved my major. It suits my needs and my career goals. The professors are very concerned with the success of students the teach. I am only concerned about career prospects depending on the graduate school I am able to get into.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus is relatively controlled based on byu's requirements for byu contracted housing. That being said, it is not hard to find a room to live in thr Provo area.

4 College Junior

Computers: For the most part, the computers are up to date and highly accessible. Wifi is available in all computer labs and library, but is only sometimes available in other places on campus if you're attempting to access a network connection through a personal laptop.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a plenty computers all over campus that you can access. Not only are they accessible there are specific labs with tutors in case you need help learning to do something specific. Different types of computers are accessible all over campus. Printing is made simple by printers being in every building and students need only download the campus driver and can print from their computer, scan their card and get the paper.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love the options available to me around campus. I never have trouble finding something if I have a particular craving.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Because I drive my car I know fairly little about this stuff. But every year the campus has a fair that teaches students about all of the different transportation options available to students.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Although spots can fill up quickly on campus the parking passes are free as long as you are a student. Recently the campus has made a push for people driving less to school and have tried to make others ways of getting to campus possible. Most of off campus housing only a short walk from campus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my major and I love the school. There is nothing that I would change about my educational experience.

Parking: Permits are free, tickets can be pretty expensive and they take away your permit if you get too many. You don't need a car, but it's nice to have one.

4 College Senior

Majors: I would not change my major for the world. I would like to go to grad school after I graduate and get some experience under my belt. It's not too difficult to find work and such for people who graduate in my major.

3 College Senior

Majors: It's very easy to get internships, for many majors it is actually required to have an internship.

3 College Senior

Computers: There are lots of labs and such on campus. If you need a computer you can find one quite easily.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Dating is kind of a big deal on campus. If you want to you can definitely find some pretty awesome people to date.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are some really good off-campus dining options, they're pretty close to campus as well, so it's nice.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: They just revamped the on-campus housing, so it's pretty nice.

1 College Senior

Weather: The weather in Utah is severely bipolar. In the summer it is ridiculously hot, and in the winter you get several feet of snow.

College Senior

Nightlife: BYU is located in Provo, Utah. Aka Happy Valley. Good luck finding a bar.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is just fine. It's pretty varied so you can find whatever you want. You just have to put in the research to find a place to live.

College Senior

Greek Life: There's only one fraternity available on campus, and they don't make a show of their presence.

College Senior

Scholarships: I have never tried to use the financial aid system at the school.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: BYU is not super strict on anything. They leave you to obey the honor code that you signed when you entered. If you don't obey, that's your choice but you live with the consequences.

4 College Senior

Academics: The advertising program is amazing. You get a lot of hands on experience and you get to work with professors who really know their stuff. You learn a lot by putting the things that you learn in to practice and it really prepares you for the stresses and demands of the real world.

4 College Senior

Academics: BYU is a tough school to attend. It is very academically rigorous and if you're not prepared to work hard you will not do well. But if you got to class and pay attention then you'll do just fine.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: While I never lived on campus, living off campus can be kind of a nightmare. The monopoly system that's been set up for off-campus housing by forcing all BYU students to live in BYU-contracted housing has a number of problems, beginning with the fact that you can't live anywhere that you want to. "Off-campus housing" is really "campus housing but not 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.
