4 College Junior

Majors: I just declared Manufacturing Engineering and Technology as my major a few months ago, and so far, I've had nothing to complain about. I have enjoyed the hand-on aspect and the tours of some manufacturing plants, such as Boeing.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There are good opportunities for free activities and free food, and they're usually pretty decent. The library has consistently been one of the best in the nation.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The Honor Code really creates a good, trusting environment. Exceptions are rare.

4 College Junior

Computers: If you know where the various computer labs are (and not just those in the library), you'll always find open computers.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's so safe that the University Police pretty much just enforce parking and the "no biking on campus in the time between classes" rule.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: Unless you've got an incredible gpa, or you're some sort of a minority, good luck finding any kind of financial help.

Parking: I'm pretty sure permits are free, but tickets are handed out like candy.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The library is HUGE. There's always a quiet place to sit and study.

5 College Junior

Facilities: All around great. Provo is an awesome place to have fun. However, if you're definition of having a good time is getting wasted, you might have a hard time fitting in everywhere.

5 College Junior

Diversity: It's a private LDS school. Obviously, nearly all the student body shares the same religious background, which leads to having the same sexual orientation, and in some cases political orientation. There are those that don't share the same beliefs or lifestyle though, but they're rare.

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus. I've heard it's ok though.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It's literally ridiculous how many beautiful women there are, seriously.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Lots of places to eat from, lots of options.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The Honor Code does a good job at keeping everyone in line. But, for the most part, most of the students are just great people and don't need a lot of strict enforcement of the rules.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The freeway is close and can get you well on your way to pretty much anywhere.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love eating out. Usually it's below $10 and close to campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great education, great teachers, great students. It's awesome being surrounded by thousands of the countries best and brightest.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: BYU, a private school run by the LDS church, and drugs, just don't go together at all. Nearly all the students have really high morals. You can probably find drugs if you try, but, good luck...

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Since BYU is a church school, most everyone is a member of the LDS church. Some student are not. For the most part, BYU is not very diverse.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not a whole lot of options that are both nice and affordable places to live. Some apartments are really close to campus though.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Very attractive students who are hard working and very religious, as BYU is a religious school!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not a whole lot of options, especially within walking distance. There are a few really good ethnic spots though.

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.
