4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Admission to this university requires following an honor code; no alcohol or drugs; sexual intercourse outside of marriage is strongly discouraged and a violation of the honor code. Overall, a private school with some rules and restrictions, but a good school nonetheless in health and safety.

Athletics: Football team has had rough patches, but decent. Men's Rugby are many-timed champions. Men's and Women's Volleyball are huge; Soccer for both teams are big as well.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: It doesn't necessarily focus on the Greek Life, but is nonetheless a great school.

Off-Campus Housing: Costs are pretty high but again I'm not sure how they rate to other places. Living conditions are alright and I figure it just kind of comes with being a college student. You have to start looking quickly because they do get taken pretty fast. Again it just depends on the place but you can find a decent one.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There's lots of cool places and lots of diversity so whatever you're craving you can most likely find. There are usually student discounts so that's nice. Lots of great places to visit and friends are always telling me about a new place to check out.

Administration: I feel this is completely based on who you're asking. Personally I like the strictness that BYU has and the standards it upholds. It's a perfect fit for me.

4 College Student

Campus Food: I haven't eaten too much food on campus but what I've had has always been good. No real complaints. Nothing spectacular either but just good food. Usually pretty clean and not too bad lines. Good stuff.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: It's pretty nice. There are some great people and recently my university has been building new dorms which are extremely nice. The problem is the newer buildings are typically meant for freshmen. The off-campus housing is typically pretty nice. There's always the few places you never would think of going but you can find some pretty nice places still. Cost is always up there but again if you're smart you can find a good affordable place. The campus atmosphere is great at BYU. Lots of great people and because most of the students are members of the LDS Church the standards are fantastic. Personally, I love not having to worry about alcohol or drugs on campus. Of course there are always those students who go against the rules but they are few. Really campus life is just great.

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to find something comparable to the on-campus dorms.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There's actually a lot of variety and ethnic options, which you wouldn't expect. And theres a huge mall about 10 minutes away from campus that has a lot of restaurants surrounding it!

4 College Student

Administration: It is definitely strict, but it keeps us safe and I appreciate that.

5 College Student

Scholarships: I received a full tuition scholarship!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options for off camus housing and they are pretty close to campus. Next year, I will only be 5 minutes walking distance from campus.

Party Scene: I'm not really a partier. BYU had some fun parties though. They had great comedy groups that were fun to go to.

Off-Campus Dining: I didn't eat out much, but Costa vida was very close and it's one of my favorite restaurants. I loved the french toast at Kneaders. The Pita Pit, Panda Express, and Baskin and Robins were all close by and I love all of these restaurants. There was also a malt shop that has very good fries, burgers and milkshakes. There were interesting local restaurants downtown that I would like to try sometime.

Administration: I liked being at a school that shared my same standards and wanted people to live up to those standards. People agreed to the honor code when they applied to BYU, so they should be willing to follow it. It's not hard to follow the honor code because I have been following it all my life.

Scholarships: I got a full ride last year, and I am getting one this year too. It was a pretty simple process because to get the scholarships, they just looked at myessays that I wrote when I applied to BYU.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food was great. The Blueline had good soups and sandwiches and the moa cafe had great panini sandwiches. The Cannon Center had good food, some of the food did get a little old after eating it for 8 months. The Cannon did have many different options that changed everyday. The meal plan was very convenient and it was nice to be able to access vending machines anywhere on campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Dorms are great. They provide a wonderful social atmosphere where you can get to know everyone in your hall. The dorms aren't huge, but they are more than big enough for a college student. The rooms are clean and well taken care of.

5 College Junior

Administration: The strictness didn't bother me at all. Too much police work on parking tickets, but beyond that, they were great!

Scholarships: If you don't stay on your toes, you will miss the deadline and end up having to find other ways to get scholarships.

Campus Food: Food was ok, but like all fast food, it would cost so much less if you just packed a lunch you made yourself.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Great, clean, and fair housing. Loved the proximity to campus!

3 College Junior

Party Scene: You're not at BYU to party. Sure we like to have fun, but we know why we're really here.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
