4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There is a strict honor code at the school, but I think sometimes it is not implemented as strict as it should be. However, it's based on your honor.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Students sign an honor code and then abide by it. Everyone knows what to expect and, as a whole, lives up to those expectations. The school's strictness is just holding students to their agreement.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It really is good, I like that I can rely on a clean great atmosphere for study and learning. My one issue is I'm pretty cops only look for parking ticket violations and don't really do anything else.

Coming into BYU, you know should know what you are getting into. By signing your name to the Honor Code, you are saying that you will live by strict rules, and BYU will not let you forget it. The Honor Code Office is the biggest threat on campus, and no one wants to be called by them. Students will most definitely be kicked out of school for drug and alcohol offenses, as well as possibly suspended for things such as curfew violations and being found in the bedroom of someone of the opposite sex.

Cheating is never tolerated, and plagiarism is another offense that will not only get you in the Honor Code Office, but the dean's office as well. Students undoubtedly have fun, but they also play by the rules. Again, due to the Mormon culture, things such as cheating and lying are looked down on by peers and not tolerated by authority. If you are looking for a school where you can get away with things, be advised, this one is not for you.
