3 College Senior

Campus Housing: My apartment is definitely worth what I pay for it. It has been around for decades so it's a little old.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Most students are big fans of college sports, especially our own football team. They will flood the campus store to get their face tattoos, hats, shirts, etc. Many get a ROC pass so they can attend all of the games at any time of the year for a lesser price.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience at school has helped me discover what area I belong it. It has taught me valuable skills that can be used in my major but also in life in general. It has encouraged me to be better and to work harder. It has made my goals possible. They have many sources as options to help you see where you are at and how to get to where you need to be. The experiences I have had here and am currently having are helping me to be a better me so I can go out and be an honest influence and an excellent employee.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The students who attend help make it safe - security itself seems quite strong and effective. Its rare to hear of crimes and there is a phone/email alert system in place to notify students if something has happened, or just to give warnings, updates, or news. We've received at least several news updates in the last year regarding campus safety.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel that I'm very likely to get a career because of going to this school. It is high quality and respected in the world.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I've especially gotten involved in club athletics such as karate, one of their oldest ones. It's really fun - I was afraid at first but found it really fun and I felt very welcomed. Football especially is much bigger here, and all of my family is interested in it. Everyone I know seems to love it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If i could do it all over again, i would have sought better grades. But the fervor for learning, the plentiful resources, the good people attending, the kind and wise staff, and feeling that I'm in a good place make it great!

Health & Safety: The BYU police department takes their job very seriously and can often be seen on campus watching over students. The emergency telephones located around major walkways on campus make it easy to call for help in time of need. Campus crime is very low, and the only thing anyone here is worried about is whether their bike is going to be stolen. I feel very safe on campus.

Overall Experience: GE courses are in high demand, and it can be difficult to find the classes you need to fit around your schedule, especially as a freshman. The professors work very hard to ensure that they are teaching to the best of their abilities. Most classes are 50-100 people, with the occasional GE class that has upwards of 400 people.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Especially around Utah, BYU grads are often given extra consideration when applying for internships or jobs. Because of the high standards we adhere to, future employers know the standards we hold, and know that we are honest, clean and intelligent people with a strong work ethic.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Heritage Halls is the most luxurious option for on-campus housing. Although it is a little bit pricey, you get what you pay for. It's a 5 minute walk to campus, very spacious, great kitchen and enough bathrooms for everyone to get ready in the morning. Signing up for housing is a bit of a stress case. The student is assigned a housing selection date based on the time they submitted their application. Because of the limited housing options, getting a spot at heritage halls is almost impossible if you don't have the first two selection days.

Athletics: Since BYU is a D1 school, sports are very important to almost everyone on campus. In order to get good seats in our student section, students often camp out for days in advance. Coaching staff and athletes are all very involved with the public, and do many things to get the community involved with the sports programs.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: BYU provides many activities sponsored by BYUSA that are available and fun for all students. The professors expect a lot from each student, but it has pushed me to be a better student and to work harder than I did in high school. The sports here are excellent, and being apart of The ROC gives me a huge sense of school pride and excitement for where I am.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: BYU Police and security do a great job of maintaining a safe environment on campus. I have always felt safe and like campus is a nice place to be even late at night.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: BYU isn't an Ivy League school; however, it can go up against students from those prestigious schools and win when it comes to internships and jobs. The clubs and organizations on campus are extremely helpful in preparing students for career success.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Honestly, I wasn't very impressed with campus housing. It is an extremely difficult process to even get housing, and then it is not all that great.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: We don't have Greek Life at BYU and I think that is a great part of the learning environment. The campus has been voted the top sober campus for decades now, and I think that is really valuable. I come from another state where I saw how important Greek Life is to the students of public state schools and it honestly consumes them. I think Greek Life distracts from the learning experience that we as students are intended to have at university.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The students really rally behind their school's teams. In some sports, BYU is top-notch, and it is not so good in others.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: BYU has a very unique learning environment that really creates a great place to be and grow in knowledge and understanding. It is an incredible institution with a powerful brand.

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.
