3 College Senior

Transportation: Frontrunner is a nice new addition with stations in Provo-Salt Lake that is fairly cheap and inexpensive.

1 College Senior

Majors: They make you take a pre-requisite class to get in which makes it so that you can't be accepted into your program until after you have moved to utah, been accepted to BYU, and started to make friends. It was terrible and they always reject people on their first try just to weed them out. I hated the process and if I could I would have torn them a new one if I could have.

Majors: I would definitely do it again. I loved being in the school of music but I also hated it at times. The school of music loved to make certain majors feel like less-valued majors (they love the violin performance majors but discriminated against music education students).

4 College Senior

Academics: I loved my Music major. It was often extremely difficult and stressful though.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The school has an honor code that is really strict. I liked it because it meant that I was in an environment that was safe. Other's have felt that is was oppressive.

5 College Senior

Computers: Wifi is everywhere. The computers often get taken up during the middle of the day but usually you can find one if you're willing to walk around a bit.

3 College Senior

Diversity: I mean this is an LDS school so 99% of the school are the same religion. Super accepting religion, but everyone is Mormon nonetheless.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The problem with Off-Campus housing is the parking. Walk if you have to. It's terrible and you will get towed at least once during college. They recently passed some measures to help ease predatory towing but I don't know how much it has helped. The housing though is usually very nice. The other problem is that most BYU approved housing requires landlords to do cleaning checks once a month. They use this as an opportunity to fine you and make you pay out of pocket. It is ridiculous. Seriously, if you can get approved to live in non-BYU approved housing, DO IT!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Pricey food plans, but decent housing

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Pricey, but nowhere else to go

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major and all the resources

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Wifi and printing is available everywhere

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: You have to be creative, but there's a lot to try

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Harder to find, but does exist

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is no drug scene...

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have great programs and great fan support.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: We get all four seasons here.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Competitive school with lots of resources.

5 College Student

Majors: Great selection of majors, lots of help not only graduating but graduating with a job or internship with a fantastic corporation.

4 College Student

Majors: Difficulties were just being an freshman with little on my resume to qualify myself for admission.

The important criteria were relating to diversity and display of a good work ethic.

all my tips would involve joining different clubs and learning diff languages to make you diverse and unique on paper.

2 College Student

Nightlife: You have got to really look for good nightlife parties, no restaurants except for ihop are open.

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: good place to live, cheap and good for college life, terrible drivers, everyone drives like they're gonna die if they don't put a dent in the next car.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I've found a few fantastic restaurants, Guru's is my favorite, and a couple bad Chinese ones but there's always a good option in fifteen minutes drive.

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.
