3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Academics are amazing, especially for the cost. As far as mentoring goes however you are not going to get much help. It is also solely a school for academics not for social living.

Local Area: Provo is nice. It's enough of a city that you can find things to do but it is heavily influenced by Mormon culture.

Administration: It is very strict. If you plan to follow the rules then you have nothing to worry about otherwise don't come here.

Party Scene: There is none because of the Honor Code. Partying will get you kicked out of school

Off-Campus Housing: It all depends on how far off-campus you are willing to go. Married off-campus housing that is close to campus is very expensive for a little shoebox. But, move 5 miles away or more from campus and you can find places twice the size for the same price. Singles, off-campus housing can be pretty good, but can be quite expensive.

Administration: It all just depends on your attitude. If you want to live the honor code, which you signed up for, then it is fantastic and don't complain. But if you don't want to live the honor code, then don't go to school here or else you will be miserable and bring everyone else down.

Scholarships: Scholarships were SUPER easy to get and added to my account. Loans, on the other hand, those are an absolute headache. I hate the fact that I might have to ever again take out even a $50 loan, because I know it'll be a hassle to actually get that stupid check.

Party Scene: If the students you are partying with live the honor code, you do not have to worry about the alcohol and drugs, which is a huge plus to me! Everyone just likes to have a good time.

Campus Food: There are a lot of options, and that is always really nice. The best spots are usually the ones that aren't well known. Personally, I would NOT ever have a meal plan, because then you are able to not be stuck at the same old places all the time.

Campus Housing: Depends on what you're into. If you don't live rules, it would not be so great. If you do want to live the rules, it can be absolutely amazing!

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing has kind of a monopoly here and so the prices really are not that great. Especially if you are looking for married housing or....anything really nice. I did have some apartments I really did not like, were bad quality and had terrible management. But most were okay.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I love the life in Provo. There are a lot of different restaurant options from Mexican, to really good burgers, to Wendy's and McDonald's types, to Thai and Chinese cuisine, etc.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: There is the Honor Code at BYU which helps in keeping your own standards as you know that everyone else chose to abide by them as well. You can't have a beard....which is odd among other things but I read it and agreed to it. That's how it works.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: It's difficult to get scholarships because the students at BYU are all very qualified and intelligent. However, financial aid was really easy to get and you can't beat the tuition price here for the quality education you get.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: There is a really great atmosphere around BYU. You can have a lot of fun but still stick to your values.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: The food that is available on campus is stellar. You have a lot of different options with a lot of different types of food. The Canon Center is great for just a smorgasbord of food buffet style. On-campus fast-food joints are great because you have Taco Bell, Teriyaki Stix, Subway (Great option - my favorite), and recently Chik-File that many people are really excited about. There is a great variety there so you don't have to eat the same thing all the time.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Housing at BYU is really great. They have a lot of options that are close to campus and some really good cheap housing that is a little farther away - maybe a 20 minute walk. I also really appreciate the married on-campus housing they have as they do maintenance for housing there. They also allow for month-to-month rent payments in married housing which makes it really easy to look for other housing when you graduate. The new Heritage housing for freshman is really, really nice and affordable. Great atmosphere.

Campus Food: I wish there were more options, because it gets really old, really fast.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living within two minutes of my classes. The people are great, the place is awesome, and I just love it.

Off-Campus Housing: I like living off campus in byu-approved housing. the wards are great and people are nice.

Off-Campus Dining: There are some chain restaurants but also some great local places.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: I love how strict my campus is, it makes campus a safe and fun environment.

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.
