4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The engineering college is focused on helping students get experience and jobs.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: They have plenty of fitness facilities and the campus is always so well kept. It smells like flowers everywhere.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Student body is, as a whole, friendly.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Tons of people get half tuition scholarships based on academics. There are also lots of options for sport or talent scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Heritage housing definitely better than Helaman Halls, if you are looking for space and newness. But the communities in both are really great.

College Sophomore

Academics: There are tons of great majors at BYU, but I can't comment very much on any of them since I am still exploring.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is very little crime at BYU because of the honor code and the high standards of living everyone adheres to. This creates a very safe feeling throughout campus, since most people share the same standards.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Lots of people get involved with football and basketball games. Some of the other sports are less well attended, but they still get a decent turn out.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Because of BYU's honor code, everyone is required to dress modestly and relatively conservatively. Most of the students are pretty straight up Mormons, but still enjoy having good, clean fun.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The Cannon Center has a lot of options and seems really great for the first month, but after that you get really bored with the food.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life whatsoever at BYU. Although there are lots of clubs and ways to get involved, there are no sororities or fraternities.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU is a great school for people with high standards who don't want to be persuaded to go against what they believe.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety of off-campus dining in and around Provo. The costs vary and the distances from campus also vary. It's easier to get a larger variety if you have a car.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: In the summer it's super hot and dry, and in the winter the snow makes it hard to walk to campus, although the roads are pretty good because of all the snowplows.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Provo isn't a big city, but it's a college town. There are plenty of things to do, sometimes you have to go look for them.

Guys & Girls: BYU has been ranked #1 for being the SMARTEST and MOST ATTRACTIVE college in the U.S. Tis true. You can find someone who shares similar beliefs and morals or there are people who just want to make-out because they think you're hot. You can usually find who you are looking for. Don't be surprised if a freshmen gets married after a semester of knowing their spouse. It happens all the time. Some people go to BYU to get married and that's what they do. Don't think you want to get married young or fast? Be careful, I thought the same thing...

Campus Strictness: It's the best in that it is very strict. But the Honor Code is there for a reason, and it's not like there are Honor Code Police Officers everywhere patrolling the place. People make their own decisions, right or wrong, because they want to.

Academics: Nursing is the best and the worst. It is one of the best programs BYU has to offer but it is HARD and COMPETITIVE to be accepted into. They turn away lots of applicants every year. You already know that BYU only take the best of students. Well, BYU Nursing takes the best of the best, with honors.

5 College Junior

Academics: You cannot get the education you get at BYU anywhere else. The professors know their stuff and make sure you do too. There is a heavy workload no doubt, academics is a huge part of BYU. But the thing I like the most is that you learn secular as well as spiritual aspects. The library is a magical place. Great places to study, quiet or not.

Campus Housing: Freshmen dorms are nice. Probably don't want to stay more than 2 years. There are plenty of options. Get applied or sign contracts early though, housing goes pretty fast.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are definitely places to go and things to do at night or on the weekend, but they don't include a bar or club scene. If you walk inside an apartment, you'll see a group date of people watching Disney movies and drinking root beer/chocolate milk. That's the BYU way.

5 College Junior

Athletics: LOYAL STRONG AND TRUE, WEAR THE WHITE AND BLUE. AS WE SING, GET SET TO SPRING! COME ON, COUGARS ITS UP TO YOU! SO RISE AND SHOUT THE COUGARS ARE OUT ALONG THE TRAIL TO FAME AND GLORY! RISE AND SHOUT OUR CHEERS WILL RING OUT AS YOU UNFOLD YOUR VICTORY'S STORY! ON YOU GO TO VANQUISH THE FOE FOR ALMA MATER SONS AND DAUGHTERS. AS WE JOIN IN SONG, IN PRAISE OF YOU, OUR FAITH IS STRONG! WE'LL RAISE THE COLORS HIGH IN THE BLUE, AND THE CHEER THE COUGARS OF BYU! RA-RA-RA-RA-RA-RA-RA-RA-RA GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COUGARS! (cougar growl)

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Find housing in February!!!! If not, all the spots you want will be taken. Yes, you can find housing in the summer, but it won't be your first choice place. Most Off-Campus housing is close to campus and a plus (at least for me) is that you don't have RAs (Resident Assistants) bugging you all the time.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Provo is a college town so there are plenty of nice places to go to within walking/biking distance. The farthest dorms are in Wyview Park and it is about a 20-25 minute walk (if you use the shortcut). The city bus is good and everyone knows a friend who has a cat that they can ask for a ride.

4 College Junior

Computers: There is usually a computer available for you to use, but you have to know where to find them. Most people only know the labs in the library but there are so many more on campus in other buildings.

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.
