2 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Most places are within walking/biking distance, however, the public transportation needs significant improvement because it is terrible.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: There are lots of concerts and things to go to, but the bar/club scene is poor since it's against the honor code!!!

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The campus is beautiful, so summer, fall and spring are great! But winters are super cold and walking outside between classes is awful. Luckily the grounds crew keeps campus relatively free of ice!

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Health insurance was required, and the student health center was great. Free access to counciling services.

3 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Parking permits were free, but availability of parking was horrible. It was always difficult to find parking close to class. I think BYU should charge for parking and give reduced bus fairs instead to improve parking and transportation.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing was easy to find if you wanted to live in BYU approved housing. I hated the process for living in BYU non-approved housing, however, it was a pain. I liked the variety & pricing better in non-approved housing, but obtaining a waiver to live there was difficult. Most approved housing was slightly overpriced for the quality of housing, however, the communities were great, safety great and proximity to campus also superb.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Campus was extremely strict in regards to the honor code. However, there was no problem as long as students were willing to abide by the honor code. I don't know why someone would go to the school if they were not fully committed to living the honor code, however.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I LOVED being a German major, the classes were small, opportunities abundant, and teachers super accessible. LOTS of learning opportunities.
However, I hated my Exercise Science major. The first classes were overcrowded and most teachers were inaccessible. Once I was actually in the exercise science classes, the classes were smaller, more enjoyable, and teachers were more accessible, however, I didn't get into those classes until my last 2 semesters.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: My classes were difficult, but I learned a lot. The registration process wasn't too bad, and the curriculum was great, but the professors were not always accessible depending on the major. The workload was very difficult, but it was worth it.

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: There are lots of fun local activities, lots of shopping, super safe, lots of sports/recreation, lots of hiking & biking & running trails, lots of local music places & hangout places.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: I didn't love the on campus options because I got sick of them, however, they are decent. A little overpriced.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Diversity is there if you look for it, however, it isn't the mainstream. You have to join clubs and get involved in unusual activities to find it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: Computers were great, but the labs got pretty crowded during crunch times. Wireless access was great in most areas except for in a couple of older buildings and also the basement of a couple newer buildings.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I guess athletics are really popular and most students are involved in some sort of athletics. I myself am not a fan of most athletics, but I love to run and dance and so I was involved in both on campus. Facilities were great for those, and there was lots of support for both as well.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Both my exercise science & German programs were open enrollment.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: My internship was awesome!!! It was payed, very involved and interactive.

1 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: People aren't allowed to use drugs at my school. There is little peer pressure, as the majority of students at my school follow a strict health code which prevents them from using drugs and alcohol. There are of course a few rule breakers, but their numbers are few and they hide in the shadows so as not to be kicked out of the school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: On campus dining is very convenient and offers a lot of options, but it only open for certain hours of the day.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: This place is beautiful. The library is one of the best in the country, so take full advantage.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Best bang for your buck, hands down. There is lots of work involved because it is one of the top colleges, and curriculum is great because you experience new things.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are generally great and some programs (like business) are hard to get into.

5 College Freshman

Weather: They actually have seasons in Utah and it gets cold pretty early in the Fall. But absolutely beautiful.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Mormons are known to be conservative and white, which is a good 90% of the people here. It's not the best, but there are people of other origins and economic backgrounds, like myself.

5 College Freshman

Majors: My program is English and there are no requirements, just be a good student.

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.
