4 College Freshman

Weather: Wintertime is cold!! Walking to classes is not super fun. However, you're not usually outside longer than 10 minutes since the parking lot isn't too far away and the buildings are all close together. Just be sure to bundle up!

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Multiple options available and open whenever the campus is open. Vending machines located everywhere.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The housing is good quality for dorm rooms. Cinder block walls are never appealing, but they make it affordable and really close and are always helpful.

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Buses run every ten minutes or so and pick up and drop off from multiple locations around campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are a huge part of student life. And the sports teams are ranked pretty consistently.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The library is the best place to study. It is quiet and has a good environment.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: All of the students are focused on their education, they are all motivated and very driven to do well.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm in the BYU psychology program, with an emphasis in Neuropsychology. All of the professors are very interested in your progress, and they all focus on our learning. I really enjoy everything about this program.

1 College Junior

Diversity: There are so few people from diverse cultures at BYU. It's kind of ridiculous how rare it is to see people from minority cultures. It also promotes a culture of ignorance amongst the rest of us because we don't interact with a diverse group of individuals while attending BYU.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Getting into the accounting program at BYU is tough. You have to take a lot of prerequisite courses. Your GPA used for getting into the program is one third your prerequisite scores, one third your last 30 credit hours, and one third your overall college GPA. It also requires a 500 word essay. Entry is very competitive and not everyone who applies gets in.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Everyone in the accounting program is required to have a laptop. Therefore, there isn't much in the way of computer labs. Printing on campus is pretty straight forward, but it might take some help to get it set up the first time. The internet is usually good, but there are times when it is spotty. I've had some troubles with the network and windows 8.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of housing available. However, the housing options are almost all incredibly old and run down. In general, it's pretty ghetto. There are a few nicer places but they are far more expensive. It's really easy to find somewhere to live though.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I love BYU athletics. Watching basketball and soccer are definitely my favorite. I really like that the fans are generally very courteous and the school spirit is great!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm an accounting major and I have not had an internship yet. I'm only a sophomore and most of the internships are meant for the summer between your junior and senior year. I fully intend to do an internship next summer though. I think they are definitely a must to be able to find a good job out of school.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm doing accounting and I love it. It is very rigorous at BYU, but it teaches me so much and I feel like I get a lot of real world experience. Every professor I've had thus far has had extensive experience with one of the big 4 accounting firms. The big 4 actively recruit from BYU and all of them even showed up to give free stuff away at an information session for students in the very beginning accounting class.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not a lot of things happen on campus. The security workers are all really nice and I can't think of anything horrible happening, but the campus police can be a bit silly in what they find to be unacceptable.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Great fan support and school spirit!!! However the actual sports teams aren't the best. Except the rugby team. WOOT WOOT.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is beautiful. Library is very nice. The athletic center is very nice, the weight room is somewhat tiny but doable.

5 College Junior

Majors: Love it! It's hard but helps you realize you can do anything!

3 College Junior

Computers: The network is very slow in the business school. Printing is usually good and there is usually an empty computer in the computer lab.

5 College Junior

Majors: There are so many opportunities for internships in this program. Last summer I had one, learned a lot, great experience. It paid well and paid for my housing. It was just a regular 40 hour job.

4 College Junior

Majors: I had a hard time deciding on doing Accounting. The program is very intimidating. But it is such a great program, I would definitely do it again. It's SO hard, but I learned so much and made great friends.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Theres a lot to do here and at BYU there's plenty of traditions. The BYUSA puts on light up the Y on the mountain every fall and there's a blue foam party that goes on as well. The campus is very beautiful aside from that. However the biggest issue is this isn't really a hang out school and more people are interested in studying.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am in a specialized major, Geographic Information Systems. The teachers have all had experience in the fields and they have personal stories which can help us. They do a great job in placing students in internships and the workload is not too severe. They have a great computer lab which makes work on projects easy, quick, and fun.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: BYU is home to many different programs which are built to help you succeed in not only your career, but in your life. By taking the focus off your grades, and more into the joy of developing your own personal skills and attributes, you become more prepared for the job market and the rest of your life. The grades you receive usually coincide with the effort you put into your classes. The professors are fair and work with you. They have a great job placement program as well.

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.
