5 College Student

Academics: Prof. control a lot, lots of competition too.

5 College Student

Academics: Exercise Science is a popular major for sure.

3 College Student

Computers: The computers are mostly Apple, and work well.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Heritage Halls (new) is really amazing, it's kind of like a hotel, and the people are great.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: There are benefits to the dry weather, even though I was used to humidity. I don't like the snow, it is there forever, and the weather will sometimes change in the blink of an eye. It's pretty hot during the summer and cold during winter, but nothing too extreme.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like BYU. It is affordable, provides a great environment, there are lots of opportunities to challenge yourself and achieve. It also has a great reputation for job placement, which is really helpful. I have some issues with the culture here and the lack of diversity. I also don't love the location and the fact that the campus is so far from the downtown area. I have had a good experience with classes and professors, I have made many interesting friends - something which I did not expect.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are tons of attractive people on campus. Most people are friendly and outgoing. The main characteristic they share is the fact that they are religious. A misunderstanding of the principle of modesty as part of their religion may be the reason why most of them lack a sense of style. People have many interests, which makes them well rounded and good conversationalists, most of the time.

Transportation: I've never used campus provided transportation.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: While I am sure there are individuals who experiment with drugs and alcohol, these are very few. Most people adhere to the Honor Code, either because they feel that is the right thing to do, or because they don't want to get caught and expelled. The risk of getting caught is high. The drug scene is mostly underground. Peer pressure works to the opposite of the usual: if you are using drugs, you will probably be shunned. You can have a great time without drug or alcohol.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: A meal plan is expensive and no one ever uses it up completely. There are different places where you can get food on campus and you can even manage to put together a healthy meal. There aren't many late night options.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved campus housing - especially the option to live in an apartment and not in a dorm! The only issue is that the nicest campus housing is far from campus if you have to walk. The dorms seem nice and clean, there are older buildings and newer ones, depending on what you can afford.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many students are interested in sports. There are facilities for all kinds of sport. There are clubs for less well-known disciplines. School spirit is strong.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life.

College Sophomore

Parking: I can't rate parking since I don't drive. I don't have a first hand experience, so I'm not going to assume.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Most people would consider the BYU campus to be pretty strict. Some of the rules may sound absurd - and some really are. In certain cases, the rules focus on minor details while ignoring the real cause of the problem. Students are mostly good at following the rules.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are countless labs, equipped with all the necessary technology. However, if living off campus, it's more convenient to have your own laptop. There is crowding in the main labs, but there are many smaller labs in individual buildings on campus where you can always find a spot.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Considering the students attending BYU are bound by the Honor Code, nothing too wild ever happens on campus. Police officers are within reach most of the time. I have never experienced crime or violent behavior while on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: The transportation of campus and around campus is Awesome!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've lived off-campus for the passed 2 years and in different places. Both places were awesome!

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: BYU has a very strict Honor Code and we are trusted to keep it to it's highest standards.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: BYU's police force keeps this university nice and neat. We don't ever have problems on campus that cause too much hassle and the police here are very professional.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The gyms and gaming facilities are awesome:)

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: BYU has a great reputation for their sports and how sportsmanlike this school is all together. I love the camaraderie:)

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: BYU is very diverse culturally, so of course they like to put on many different cultural events.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: BYU academics are REALLY hard. The freshman classes are about as hard as the senior classes. There is no "easing into the college life" here at BYU.

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.
