Guys & Girls: You'll find all sorts of guys at BYU: from both and out of the country. The girls as well come from all over the country and are very attractive for the most part. Both guys and girls are really religous as the school is a private university.

Guys & Girls: Some if the girls tend to seem a little vain sometimes, but everyone is generally really nice. I have encountered cliques here; something my high school didn't have. But BYU cliques aren't stereotypical and mean, they're just there. The football And rugby players are hot! ;)

Sometimes I wish there were more small-town kids here and less city slickers.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: BYU is great.going to school here can sometimes have the ability to make you feel really dumb because expectations are so high.

Nightlife: Nightlife is pretty good. There is a really good music scene and there is a lot of really good restaurants.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: The computer labs are pretty good. There are plenty of Mac labs but they are usually crowded. During crunch times labs get busy.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I'm a guy and I like places where I can get big portions without dropping a ton of money; Cafe Rio, JCW's, Chick-fil-a, DP's, and J-Dawgs, and Brick oven pizza, are your top choices but the quality drops off pretty quickly from there

Campus Dining: The Cannon Center is really good, and the Wilk is alright; but I feel like they could have way more choices

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: BYU has some of the best people in the world. For the most part, everybody is friendly; there are a lot of really intelligent kids around. If you like good clean fun, then you'll love BYU

Majors: Getting into my the Psychology major was easy. There is a lot of competition, but over 80% of BYU psychology graduates that apply for graduate schools get in. You just have to keep on top of things and be involved.

Weather: It can be pretty extreme both during the winter and the summer. It is usually really pretty no matter what weather is outside. Classes aren't too far from one another so I don't feel that the weather really affects the experience that much.

Nightlife: If you know where to go, nightlife can be super fun. The people at BYU are great. Everything is within walking distance and if it isn't, there are bus stops along the way.

Campus Strictness: When you agree to attend BYU, you are agreeing to live by the standards of the LDS church. It is really strict, and pretty serious if you break the rules. But if you agree to live by the policy, you should hold up to your agreement anyway. The parking is strictly enforced, and that can be a pain. But I love the strictness of BYU.

Computers: There is usually a line to print papers between classes. Occasionally the computer labs are full and you are unable to get a computer. The wireless network has problems in certain areas on campus. However, the quality of network is good once you get access.

Facilities: I think the most important part about BYU is the social environment and the religious classes which are required. Almost every time when begging a class at BYU the teachers will start with an opening prayer to invite the spirit so the students can better understand the subject being taught. Also, for those who enjoy snowboarding there are three ski resorts very close which is one of my most favorite things about BYU. The school is overall great for anyone who is looking for more of an education than just partying.

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.
