5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Good academics and social atmosphere. Also very friendly students.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: lots of clubs to join and activities to go to. Never bored.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: applying for scholarships is super easy. Applying for FAFSA is more tricky, because you have to deal with the government's policies as well as BYU's.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The Honor Code outlines the rules and what will happen if you break them. Rules are strict but still okay.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is good. Prices are okay and the dorms are good. They're in the process of tearing down all the old buildings so new, bigger buildings can be built!

3 College Sophomore

Parking: not a huge need for a car on campus. Parking spots fill up fast and the student lots are far away from everything!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: New Heritage dorms are amazing. Tons of room. It's very social if you talk to the people in your ward. There's a great family atmosphere in those dorms.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: With many roommates that are athletes I have seen a lot of the athletic life. It's great. Students are supportive and athletes are given lots of help to succeed.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm often confused about what's going on. I also had a great high school GPA and didn't get a scholarship. It's very competitive.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are lots of computer labs. Campus wifi can be slow. Printing is kind of pricey. 7 cents per page adds up.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: A large majority of the students are smart, attractive, and well put together. Most people are up for a good time and are willing to get to know people.

2 College Freshman

Parking: For freshman living in the dorms parking is hard to find and the permits are confusing. My roommates have gotten several parking tickets for parking in the apparent "wrong spot."

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are lots of events in Provo. Nearby there are many places to shop, east, hike, and ski.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: All I've been on is the Frontrunner to SLC. It's nice, not too expensive, but you have to get a ride to the station in the winter or walk when its warm.

College Freshman

Campus Dining: I don't have a meal plan.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Dorms are in good condition, have space for student activities, and are very safe. The gym on campus is big and open to students for free! The library is huge and a very good place to study. The law library is the best kept secret on campus though, because it is usually more empty and quieter.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: BYU is in a beautiful environment. The fall is gorgeous, the campus is well maintained, and the mountains are always visible and pretty.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: When you come to BYU you understand that you have to follow the honor code. It's strict but it's helpful in keeping your standards. It's really not that hard to follow. It's not confining. If you don't want to follow the rules, don't come to BYU.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is so fun and safe. It's a positive environment that focuses on academic success and balance in life.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus yet.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I go to BYU in Provo, Utah. There's definitely a party scene, but not really a "nightlife." People are really focused on academics.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My program is very planned out, and I don't need to choose too many electives.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There is wireless internet access almost anywhere on campus, which makes it very convenient to have your own computer.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There's not much parking on or near campus, so not many people get to park close by.

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.
