3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Lots and lots of housing - you're sure to find one. And there's pretty much always a place to park. The landlords around here tend to be terrible but I can't be sure how common that is. You can find really cheap and expensive but it honestly doesn't get much higher than 500 a month, and that's the classy places.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Drug violations can get you kicked out immediately, there's really not much mercy on that front. Sexual violations can also get you kicked out but apparently if you're an athlete you get more mercy. There are warnings if you are found with the opposite sex in your room, but if you are caught doing something bad, the chances of getting out of it are slim. However, we do have an honor code so there's a reason why you come to BYU and you make a promise to obey the rules.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There isn't much diversity; There are many white people but I think the campus does a good job of making sure ethnic minorities are able to share their heritage and make friends with people from many countries. Politically, there's a decent population of liberal people but they aren't politically active so it's hard to notice that they really do exist. Economic backgrounds are hard to see because most people look well on the outside but i've met plenty of people who don't have their college paid for as well as many who come from wealthy families. Religously- we are a mormon school, so there's no more than about 2,000 students who aren't mormon out of 36,000.

4 College Senior

Computers: There are always a ton of computers open everywhere. They are super easy and convenient. Sometimes they have new programs installed that take awhile to work but once they do, they are super fast.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: We have an Honor Code that we agree to live by to come here. The Honor Code is fairly strict compared to other schools, but for the most part it consists of things that people at BYU wouldn't/shouldn't be doing anyways. I actually enjoy the Honor Code. However, sometimes authority on campus is unneccessarily strict.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: BYU campus is fairly diverse with international students and even minority groups. Obviously there is still a majority of caucasian students, but they come from all over the US not just Utah.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I fit right into the BYU stereotype, so obviously I will think that the students deserve this grade. We are generally focused and determined to succeed, unlike some other campuses that I have either been a part of or visited.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Religion classes are required. I realize that most people don't agree that this is a good thing, but it is something that everyone must study during the week, not just on Sunday, to maintain a good lifestyle.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: They are quality computers, but there are so many students. It's sometimes hard to find an open desk.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Many assortments of restaurants for decent prices, all in close vicinity of campus and off-campus housing.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking at BYU is nearly impossible! Especially in the winter when all the bicycle riders start bringing their cars because it's too cold. That and you need to have a parking pass, which isn't always easy to purchase as a college student.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: During the summer it's usually nice outside, but on many occasions it can get super hot! Not really a hunid kind of hot, but a really dry heat. It is absolutely GORGEOUS in the fall though, all the leaves change colors on the mountains and it just makes everything look so warm. Then there is the winter. Oh my goodness, it snows eight to ten inches in one day. That and it's freezing all the time! It does look really pretty though.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining hall has a wide variety of foods to choose from. Many of the more popular foods such as Subway and Taco Bell, and then there are the other, more healthy options such as the salad and soup bars. And it's all located in one hall so you don't have to really go searching for what you like to eat.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: Brigham Young University is an LDS college and is funded by the LDS church. The nightlife here consists of flashlight tag and movie nights where we watch the RM. Bars and clubs here are next to none, unless they are dry clubs or alcohol-free.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's very much a college town, with lots of places to eat. There are millions of restaurants to go to. The outdoor life is also gorgeous, lots of hiking, sking, and very pretty scenery.

3 College Freshman

Parking: In old heritage, where I live, there is not nearly enough parking for the need that is presented.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation is available, but somewhat confusing.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It's hard to take advantage of the resources if you work part-time. That's why I want a scholarship.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I walk home alone at 10:30 at night and I feel safe. It's well lit

5 College Freshman

Computers: There are a vast amount of computer labs on campus and printing is very accessible. The internet is in all buildings and has been very reliable. Many students do use their own personal computers more for convenience of location; to be where they want to be instead of having to be in a computer lab or library.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Buses pass by in many locations and it allows students to travel for long distances if desired.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The Honor Code that all students have to sign when accepting admittance to BYU expressly forbids any use of drugs or alcohol, so no one uses any, and if they do, there are VERY few. If anyone is caught using them, they risk suspension for breaking the Honor Code. It's really nice.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Many of the professors are very willing to work with you when you have questions in class. Some of the workloads are a bit much sometimes, but this is a very prestigious school, so that's to be expected. I also appreciate how easy it is to register for classes.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I can count the number of unlit walkways around campus on one hand. As a girl, and sometimes needing to walk home alone at night, I feel very safe. Lit walkways, police callboxes, and an escort program for when you do feel uncomfortable walking home at night, all create a sense of security.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of fun restaurants! Sammy's, the Malt Shop, Brick Oven, Pizza Pie Cafe, Panda Express, lots of incredibly delicious mexican food restaurants... and that's only in the very close vicinity. Get into the Salt Lake area and possibilities are endless for foodies.

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.
