3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's okay. I like to dance and party, but without drugs and smoke. I know if I went out of state, or even to neighboring colleges, that there would be things that would be frowned upon at BYU. But college is good, and safe, and I like being here. I would probably stick with BYU.

Drug Safety: I could say that drug safety is the best, or that it is not applicable, because you would be hard-pressed to find anything stronger than ibuprofen on any student. Drugs are not allowed, and neither is booze. The students at BYU have standards and a way of living that we don't drink, we don't smoke, we don't drink coffee or tea and no illegal drugs. We obey the laws of the land, and the laws set forth by religious leaders in recent times.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nobody drinks, nobody does drugs, nobody has sex outside of marriage. It's BYU and Mormon standards at it's finest, and people who break those rules either leave, or quickly change their ways. Because of BYU's reputation as the most stone-cold sober school in the nation, there really aren't bars or clubs around the school, nothing to tempt the students with. The most kids do is drink energy drinks to have the energy to finish their studying or a paper before the due date.

Parking: It's great because I am an early riser and can get there early. There are plenty of spots when I show up to school, rather than those who come later and follow people like me around the parking lot to my car. The permit is signing into your ID online and registering your car. No special fee, just register and you are good to go. BYU Police will give you a ticket if you don't have it registered to you, and they will also give you tickets for j-walking. fun fact.

College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks are people, just like the rest of us. If we were putting them down, someone would point it out and it would be addressed, but it doesn't happen. People are nice on my campus, and people get along and work to get along with others.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The facilities are clean and work well. Nothing to whine about here.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student life is good. It's great. Students are friendly and like to be around other students. Teachers and faculty are helpful and it helps that basically everyone is Mormon. People are nice and want others to be nice back. If something is wrong, people are easy to get along with and problems are worked out. No drugs, no drinking, and life is great.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a full- tuition for grades, that is based on my GPA at the end of the semester. Since I don't know how that will all work out, I am applying for more scholarships to hopefully earn enough to keep going to college.

Campus Dining: I like eating on campus, when I have to. I eat at home mostly to save money, but there are times when you can not avoid eating on campus. The selections are great, and there is a lot to try.

Local Atmosphere: People are friendly and trusting, because almost everyone at my school and nearby share the same standards as LDS people.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Sometimes I wish I wasn't surrounded with people with the same beliefs and expectations as me. But it is what makes BYU a safe and tolerant place.

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.
