3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The two largest factors in housing is distance and quality. There are some really crappy housing options super close that cost way more than they're worth.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If you're willing to look there are lots of cool places to eat that aren't super expensive

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: BYU is definitely not a party school if you're looking to party look somewhere else.

3 College Freshman

Administration: This is BYU expect to follow all the standards of the church and then some. A lot of the things are like yes this makes sense and then others are completely ridiculous.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Getting a scholarship here is quite hard. Tuition is cheaper than other places but getting a scholarship is beastly

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: On one hand it seems like there are quite a few different options but it's really just the same stuff slightly different.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Definitely easiest in terms of receiving a contract. The monthly cleaning checks get quite obnoxious around finals. The RA's are either laid back and let you do anything or are super strict

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I love off-campus housing. There is quite a lot to choose from and the majority of it is within walking distance of campus which is really great. There's decent variety in housing in terms of style, quality, and prices as well. It's better to live off campus in the later years because you have a bit more space and off-campus is still really social.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I wouldn't call it extraordinary, but there are some decent options. Of course you have all of the typical chain restaurants, a lot of which have some decent student discounts. In downtown Provo there are some cool restaurants. Nothing mind-blowing, but enough to keep you entertained and full.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's not your typical party scene- BYU is very conservative. That being said, there is ALWAYS something random and fun going on so you're most certainly never bored.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: It's very strict in terms of the honor code, but not any more than is to be expected because we all do have to sign it before going to the school so it's not really an issue.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not deal with the financial aid process.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Cannon Center is awesome if you have a meal plan- if not it's pretty expensive. The two Creamery stores are also fantastic. The Cougareat is great because of the options and the convenience of it. I definitely took advantage of the meal plan card working for the vending machine and I got almost 100% of my snacks and drinks that way.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus housing is awesome. I stayed in Helaman Halls and I loved it. It's a great way to ease into the college life and it is super social. It can seem a little pricey for some, but the other dorm options are pretty much just as good from what I hear. Maybe not quite as social but definitely nice and affordable and fun.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't actually lived off campus yet, but the info I have provided is what i have gathered from family and friends.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of off campus dining, it's really nice for dates, and when you get sick of the cannon center.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Our standard of party is different from the worlds standard, we know how to have a great time with out taking in alcohol or other substances that could effect our well being and memory. With that being said, BYU is a very clean social environment the facilitates meeting new people and making friends who will be a good influence on you.

4 College Junior

Administration: We all agree to live by an honor code, if we are not willing to obey, we don't deserve to study here. The honor code helps create a clean atmosphere to learn and grow, you feel at peace on campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I took out a loan, not with the school, so I have to pay it back with the accumulation of interest, so that's not very fun. I am trying now to apply for more financial aid.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a wide variety of food options on campus. The subway is a favorite but the lines are always super long, even with two stations open. Many complain about the Cannon center but i didn't eat there daily so for me when I did it was a treat, although sometimes portions were closed, limiting your options. I do enjoy how many vending machines there are to make getting a snack between classes easy, but if I hadn't had a food plan no way would I spend so much money!

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: As a freshman I lived at Wyview which I enjoyed the apartment style it was spacious but one of the oldest models. The new Heritage apartments were super nice, I enjoyed visiting friends who lived there, it's large super clean, and as expected from new amenities it had little to no problems in the apartments.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Only the best for BYU.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Can't really tell who is Greek and who is not.

5 College Student

Athletics: The athletes are amazing and very hard working.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: So awesome to be able to live off campus with friends from other schools. Great way to get to meet new people!

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 ( 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.
