4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The foreign presence in this town give a few more dining options for ethnic food, but not a ton.

College Junior

Greek Life: Fraternities and sororities are not allowed on campus.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Tons of school spirit,m among students and community members. Great football and basketball teams. Men's and women's volleyball are huge here, with national championships the last several years.

5 College Junior

Academics: Academic standards are rigorous, more difficult than many universities that my peers attend. My major, art education, requires acceptance into the program. The workload is huge, and we are expected to produce a high level of academic achievement. We do research and make presentations to our peers. We go into the public schools as part of my major, and teach art. I also teach art to children as part of my job at the Museum of Art.

5 College Junior

Academics: Academic standards are high. It is a difficult school to get into, because of the many more who want to come here. My professors have been very knowledgable and professional. The registration process is easy, but many classes are hard to get into. There are great study options. I participated in a study abroad program based on literature which was centered in London, but included continental Europe for a month. Many languages are taught here, and foreign study is offered to several countries. Political and business internships are popular as well, in Washington DC.

3 College Junior

Parking: We are encouraged to walk, because there is not much parking available.
Permits are cheap, however, and the parking police are strict.

5 College Junior

Facilities: BYU has great physical facilities. You can be involved in intramural athletics or work out on your own with a great gym. You can pretty much do any sport on a team level or just with small groups. Thy campus is beautiful, with a lot of green spaces. The buildings range from over a century old to those being built currently, so there is a variety of architecture. The grounds are very well maintained, with flowers, bushes, rock formations, waterfalls, hills, duck ponds, etc. The campus is very large so there are plenty of places to hang out or study.

4 College Junior

Weather: We definitely have four seasons here. It gets pretty cold in the winter and since I walk everywhere, it can be pretty brisk. The seasons are pretty.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a very friendly atmosphere here at BYU. Because it is a church school, everyone is looked out for socially, emotionally and spiritually. People dress trendy, but we have a dress code that requires modesty and no sloppiness. There is a lot of emphasis in establishing good dating relationships.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is a large religious community at BYU, which provides social activities. There is plenty to do in the surrounding communities while not studying. The mountains and canyons provide a beautiful setting with plenty of recreation.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: you have old run down places that still charge a whole lot and then find ways to get more money out of you or you are stuck in the richer developments that are way too expensive unless you are getting into a lot of debt, working a lot or have outside help, parking in many areas is a nightmare and many contracts are year round only leaving a lot of students in a bind trying to sell contracts during the spring and summer terms, and then charge extra to sell them

4 College Sophomore

Weather: ok so being from Arizona i am not too good with the cold but it could be a lot worse! (and a ski resort is close if you want to get in the sun during winter)

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: late night and you are out of luck, but the food is pretty good and there is a mix of chain restaurants and school run restaurants

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: lots of the school has been updated and renovated and many of the facilities are state of the art. approved off campus housing is either very new, farther away and very expensive or closer, cheaper and really really old and run down...the campus itself is very nice though

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU has its quirks but it was a very good choice for me to get my start in school and had a field i really am interested in, its a difficult university for sure but many of the different colleges are ranked very high nationally. there are some things i don't like (still cant fully participate in "no shave November"...) but after finding my major, overall its been a good experience so far.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a scholarship but still it was hard to get and complicated to find resources that didn't involve debt

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: pretty much non existent, which if that is your kind of thing then this is the place for you, there are parties obviously but more low key dance/DJ kind rather than bars, raves etc.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: School seems sometimes like it will last forever but the food I can find is great and I will miss the restaurants if I leave the area

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: still single so i will have to let you know how that turns out but it's a lot of fun on campus still

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: no fraternities or sororities, lots of problems potentially avoided i think

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: it's a very strict honor code but it does help provide a pretty safe environment and helps avoid a lot of the consequences of drugs, alcohol abuse, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: economically diverse, pretty ethnically diverse

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: for a guy it's ok around campus to walk around

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: buses, feet and bikes great but many still drive

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The general ones are ok department ones are great

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.
