4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: We do pretty well! Our football team is a disappointment. But, basketball does pretty well and we have recent national championship lacrosse, baseball, and rugby teams! Sporting events are a lot of fun and there's always a lot of student support for our teams.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I'd be lying if I said that there are no drugs on campus. As an RA in on campus housing I've seen it. However, it's not out in the open and a very small population of the campus actually does drugs. And usually it's more often than not marijuana or steroids.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There is plenty of variety and they really cater to students. You can find anything you want. It's not San Francisco, but its still fun. You can even drive to Park City or Salt Lake City to get better food if you want (less than an hour away).

5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: There are very, very few drugs at BYU. We commit to complete abstinence when we accept our spot at BYU, but unfortunately some break that commitment.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: They are getting considerably harder and harder to get, but they are generous and fair with the scholarships that are awarded. They try and be transparent about the requirements.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: To be 100% honest, I don't purchase food on campus frequently. When I have, the food has been fantastic. The venues run by the university are focused on fantastic food in a comfortable environment. There are fast food franchises in the student center.

5 College Junior

Academics: BYU has state of the art facilities for my major!! Also, there are a lot of people to help you with your projects.

BYU is full of opportunities in any major. I have been very impressed with the computer majors, such as mine.

The other students are very helpful as well as the professor assistants.

Love my major and love the school!

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Love the students at BYU. The students are very nice and helpful.

Religion plays a big part of student life here at BYU. They are trying to be like their Savior, Jesus Christ. With that mindset everyday, the students are upbeat and positive.

Social life is great! Because of the Code of Conduct, one can freely participate without the concern of inappropriate activities.

4 College Junior

Parking: BYU is a walking campus. It is really nice that the buildings are so close together.

Most of the students attending BYU, live on or near campus. So the most you need to get around campus is a bike.

A lot of the students just prefer walking.

Since the buildings are so close, there isn't much room to add to the parking. But it would be nice if they had more student parking close to campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I love attending BYU, because it is a safe campus for everyone. Everyone signs a Code of Conduct contract, that includes no drinking or drugs.
The Code of Conduct contract is included in approved BYU housing. So, there is just a lot of good clean fun!
Love it!

5 College Junior

Athletics: BYU really has team spirit! Love going to watch the football and basketball games!

The fan support is fun and exciting to participate in.

Love being a part of BYU sports ! No matter where we play we have a fan base there. Who are just as excited to watch BYU as the students.

5 College Junior

Academics: BYU has one of the top quality professors in this country. realistically, 8 or 9 out of 10 are extremely qualified and teach very effectively

4 College Junior

Facilities: It is old, but they are constantly remodling and making the facilities up to date

College Junior

Scholarships: I transfered into BYU but I am not eligible to receive any for about 2 years

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are veriety of food stores and every one has an option

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: All students must abide by the honor code set by the school. Students who will smoke or drink of consume any kind of illegal drugs are kicked of of the school.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: BYU is a private University and is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and therefore there is a large concentration of LDS members. Not a lot of religious diversity, but there are many people from other faiths or backgrounds that come for the strong educational, and environment. Because of the LDS beliefs at the school there is definitely a different culture to experience.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are 4 On CampusHousing complexes at BYU. First, Wymount: married housing, so i don't know too much. Second, Wyview: apartment style dorms. Very private. They're small, and secluded, and far from campus. Third, Heritage: 6 to an apartment, and close to campus. Forth, Helaman: small dorms that require a meal plan, but close to campus and very social. All of these places are ran very strictly due to our honor code, but you can still be social and have fun.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: It's difficult NOT to find an open Computer at Brigham Young University. Provo has now been hooked up with Google Fiber; therefore, no problems with internet speed. Yet, I would suggest a personal laptop. Provo is very spread out, and depending on how far away you live from Campus, you could be traveling 20 minutes until you're in front of a computer.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: BYU has one of the best business programs in the Country, which peeks my interest as a Public Relations major. But no matter what you study in Provo, it will be tied to LDS Doctrine (not that I'm complaining). It's a beautiful campus, so you honestly can study anywhere when the weather permits. If it's too cold, I would suggest the second floor of the JFSB for the view. I feel like I'm able to find all the help I need. When class sizes are large, my TA is able to assist me in achieving the grade I want. Great school.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am only beginning in the linguistics program here, but I have heard nothing but good about the professors. The few classes I have taken have been very informative about every aspect of linguistics and everything that can be done with this degree. The options are wide open for post graduation careers.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Because BYU is such a desired university to attend it is difficult to get in, and all the financial aid is merit based. You practically need a 4.0 GPA from high school and at least a 32 on the ACT to even be considered for financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: BYU has the highest standards among universities causing the social scene to not only be safe but also productive to the development of the students. There aren't many attractions or public activities, but there are plenty of things going on if you meet enough people

Weather: The weather is beautiful but can change quickly. We had a day in March where it was 72 but the next day it snowed! More commonly, the weather can change from sunshine to rain pretty quickly. It's a beautiful area though and when it's sunny it's a great time for hikes or swimming.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit. We have several teams that do very well nationally and those games tend to be the most popular. In addition to student support, there is a lot of community spirit as well. In addition to the varsity sports, there is also a variety of intramural sports available (innertube water polo is one of the most popular) and sports equipment that full-time students are allowed to use at the Richards Building and Smith Fieldhouse.

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.
