3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There is always financial aid if you're looking for it.

4 College Freshman

Weather: As with anywhere, you have to get used to the weather. I love it here.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There will always be people who break the rules, but it is not very prevalent or obvious at BYU.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel very safe on campus. I follow the rules. Campus police are great about everything (except parking).

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am an English major. I love the faculty and the curriculum and the classes offered. The workload is very easy to manage if you keep up with it. The advisement staff is really good about helping you find internships and job opportunities.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There is nothing about BYU's rules and Honor Code that is meant to impede students. (Except maybe parking rules). I love being here because most people readily accept the rules and live by them, and I don't have to worry about being affected by those who don't.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The new Heritage dorms are wonderful! I love it!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: BYU is probably one of the most scrict campuses. But that's what people expect when going to BYU, it also creates a competitive antmosphere

4 College Sophomore

Computers: It's pretty easy and accessible to get to computers around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life to my knowledge

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It will definitely re-shape many people's definition of night life. There are lots of activities offered, however you have to get used to the dry-campus atmosphere and the early curfew.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Most people are very friendly and welcoming, it can be judgmental to some degree.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall I think you're pretty safe here. They have what you need, and it is never too far.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I think this has to be one of the most accepting places I have ever been. It's true that diversity isn't huge, but everyone accepts everyone else without question no matter where they come from.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Though it doesn't have a big city feel, there is definitely enough to do around.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I'm not crazy about the weather, but I can't say that it prohibits us from doing what we need to do.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: That kind of thing doesn't exist here. I'm almost 100% certain. It's just the the type of school this is.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The honor code is something very important here. I personally like it because it creates a good atmosphere to learn and study in and keeps the focus on what we're doing here in the first place.

4 College Freshman

Academics: proffessors are usually great, the school really tries to make it a learning experience

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Its fine to get to the airport, you can walk to the train station and get a ride straight to the airport. But its alot of walking

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Theres lots of people ready to be social and have fun, and the rooms are normal

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Very strict about lobby rules and times that you can be anywhere. Everything shuts down at 12

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: You don't need a car for most activities, and there is a bus service available, but a car is also nice to have.

5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: No drugs or alcohol in my experience at BYU. If you're looking for that you can go to almost any other school in the world.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great variety of cuisine from around the world available in town if you know where to search. The fact that so many return missionaries live in Provo likely contributes to that variety.

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.
