4 College Junior

Majors: It is fairly good. I am a Theatre Arts Studies major and I just wish that I could go on more trips and research activities to see different cultures performing arts as well.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics at Brigham Young University are some of the best! The coaches are quality, and students are very devoted to the teams. The whole city comes for games, and most games, especially around football and basketball season, are packed. It makes it easy to have school spirit when you love the athletes and coaches so much, and it makes games fun and rewarding.

4 College Junior

Academics: I came to BYU because I wanted to be around people that had the same religious beliefs as I do. Not only did I find that, but I've been able to meet so many different types of people of all different types of beliefs, backgrounds etc. The professors I've had have always shown they care about their students, and encourage participation. It is a big workload, but totally doable.

4 College Junior

Academics: I'm at Brigham Young University, and I'm an Exercise and Wellness Major with a minor in Communications. I love my major, especially because everyone in that department is very nice and easy to work with. We all have a passion for the same thing, so it makes school not seem so tedious. They are very good at providing opportunities for internships, jobs, etc. It is a great major, and makes me excited to work in health promotion when I graduate!

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Provo isn't a big town, but it is very popular. It is filled with people that come from all sorts of different countries, states, and backgrounds. Everyone is very nice and welcoming. There are a lot of fun things to do, and the honor code keeps the atmosphere clean and pleasant. It is a great place to live.

1 College Junior

Nightlife: There are always activities going on, but if you're looking for parties or clubs, BYU is not really the place for that. You can travel relatively short distances to get there, but on or near campus is very dull at night.

4 College Junior

Diversity: As far as diversity, BYU is getting better, but there's still a vast majority of Caucasian and Mormons. However, acceptance is normally very well among students and faculty for any race, religion, or politcal belief.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are lots of open-availability computer labs, with wireless access pretty much all over campus. The network quality is good.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There is a pretty large variety of on-campus food and it's all pretty decently priced. You can always find something that you're in the mood for at least

College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is no nightlife at BYU. If you want to go to parties you have to go to UVU or the U.

Weather: There is snow and rain during winter but the cold is not that extreme because there is hardly any humidity here. The winters are definitely tolerable. Fall and Spring are really nice. Summers are hot and dry.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There are no drugs on campus, it's also against the honor code to use

1 College Junior

Parking: Parking is the worst. There are never any spots open, and the parking police are Nazis

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: You can find pretty much any type of food you could possibly want if you know where to look for it.

1 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in Utah changes every thirty seconds. It will be sunny and warm one minute, and the next it's snowing and the wind is blowing, and then the next minute everything is fine and sunny again. Be prepared for all types of weather at all times. You never know if you're going to need your coat and umbrella or not!

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: BYU offers very little financial aid, and so many students apply for it that it is nearly impossible to get anything. It's much easier to find financial aid from other sources.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Brigham Young University is fairly ethnically diverse, with students from all over the globe. It has students with every economic background imaginable, and differences in political beliefs are fairly small. Most BYU students are LDS, which is great, but it makes it difficult for students who are not LDS to feel accepted. It also means that the student body as a whole is definitely heterosexual. There is a strong prejudice against homosexuals due to a combination of religious beliefs and a lack of tolerance.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I think there is a pretty good variety of types of students. I do feel there is a majority of preppy people and the typical sales guy stereotype. There are also a lot of people who have caught on to the "hipster" look. Everyone is fairly attractive though and you can find basically any type of person if you look.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus is very congested and usually fills up really quickly. Although parking may be difficult though, walking is an easy replacement as everything is fairly close by. I walk everywhere and have not had a problem.

4 College Junior

Weather: The weather is usually very decent throughout the year. It does snow and get icy during the winter but besides that, it really is great!

1 College Junior

Diversity: We have people of all sorts of ethnic background but the majority is white LDS people. Because of this, it is hard for mixing to occur and BYU has a reputation of being all mormon kids that are wealthy snobs. Although there are a majority of white kids, there is also a diverse community of students within Provo and on campus.

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: At BYU becuase of the Honor Code, there is very low visible drug use. You still here of some people that do but it is so low that it is not likely you will run across it unless you actively seek it out.

5 College Junior

Computers: There are many computer Labs of different types of computers .
In the library they are HPs and they work great.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Love the weather. Sun in the summer, snow in the winter. So beautiful.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Endless discussions about author intent... The Shakespeare class was great.

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.
