5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Even though the food can be pretty expensive I've never had something that I haven't liked or that has been really low quality.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only reason I give it a great instead of amazing is because I lived in Old Heritage and the buildings were extremely old and were being torn down after I was done living in them. So as a result we were surrounded by construction which was extremely loud and annoying. Though everything else was awesome. The people were great and being so close to campus is something I'm going to miss.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Therapeutic Recreation: The program has had several changes in the past few years. It changed schools within the university. My classes contain students that have had three different application processes, so it is a little bit confusing. The application process is supposed to be a little more difficult now. It is in the business school, so you have to apply with the business prerequisites, but it should still be easier to get into than other business majors mostly due to lack of competition.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The most abundant diversity is probably political. I have friends with all sorts of political beliefs. Religion is hardly diverse because this is a church school. Economic background is slightly diverse. I would say that most students come from rich families. There are a lot of students that have lower income, but I would say that the culture at the school stems from wealth.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Therapeutic Recreation: Within the major is awesome. The teachers are terrific. They love their jobs and want all students to love it as much as they do. Internship and job opportunities are almost limitless. This major requires being well-rounded. It is healthcare plus physical activity plus business training plus more. Outside of the major stinks. People think this is a dumb major. They think that it is easy and all we do is just play outside and go on hikes and stuff. They don't think it requires any brain power. And, BYU students are super smart (generally).

5 College Sophomore

Academics: BYU has some of the best professors and classes. The classes where I have to read to learn everything are occasional, but most classes are not like that. You have to do some reading. The professors make sure there are lots of examples and hands-on things to help the students learn.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The library is great. We have a lot of things that other Universities don't have. The building has many study areas. And, I love the conference rooms that can be reserved in the library.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The scenery is great. We are right by the mountains: tons of hiking, outdoors recreation, etc. You can get out of the city within minutes. Lots of people come to the University sporting events, not just students and a few alumni. The stadiums are always packed and with lots of families.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people are fairly attractive. BYU is a hipster school. Lots of hipster style. Colorful clothing is everywhere. You won't find a lot of facial hair because of the honor code at BYU. BYU is also very social. There are activities around campus every day.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are off-campus housing options everywhere.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are TONS of restaurants in Provo. It's a very diverse city, because many people have served missions, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, oversees, and know how to prepare ethnic food.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Disney movies and root beer floats XD

4 College Freshman

Administration: BYU is strict on rules and regulations, but it's a Mormon school. Anyone attending BYU should've known that before going. I like the strict rules, it keeps things in place and in order. It makes it such a great environment to attend school.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: BYU accepted my other scholarship, and offered me pell grant.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I didn't eat campus food very often, but it was delicious every time I did.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I SERIOUSLY LOVE BYU. It's the best environment for a college student.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Lots of cookie cutter Mormons. Lots and lots and lots. There is a USGA (pretty much a Gay Straight Alliance) that is super big on campus. I love seeing even just a little bit of diversity in that way. My roommates and I used to compare how many black people we saw on campus each day because there were so few.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I'm a Communication Disorders Major. I haven't started my major classes yet (I start this semester) so we shall see how it goes!

5 College Freshman

Academics: It's awesome! There are so many options for classes and electives, and the professors I've had have all been incredibly loving and cooperative. They always want us to succeed and will help us to do so.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The only bad thing is that the desks in some classrooms are insanely small and not very nice to lefties. Beyond that, everything is pretty great! They take good care of campus. It's very clean.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There is not much to do in Provo itself. Go to Salt Lake for real fun. The mountains are beautiful, though, so there are lots of outdoorsy things to do!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I just love my school! I would suggest it to anyone and everyone! The honor code is awesome and unique, and it helps me feel confident in my standards. Sometimes the fact that everyone is similar (Mormon) can get kind of annoying, but I think it helps everyone feel accepted at the same time. It's a super conservative school, which is hard for me as a liberal, but there is a Democrat club that is actually quite large. There is an LGBT club too (I'm not gay, but I support gay rights). So even for the groups that you would think would feel "unaccepted," there is support. That definitely comes with having a big student body! I would choose BYU a thousand times over and would never go anywhere else!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love every class I've taken at BYU! My favorite course so far has been Physics 167: Acoustics of Music and Speech. Religion teachers' political views get in the way sometimes, which bothers me, but other than that, every other class and professor I've had have been great! Classes are challenging but not terrible, and you learn A LOT!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a fabulous education with lots of great connections and networking! The WILK has many offices that can help with career planning, along with the college of your major.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is quite nice and sociable and attractive! Mormons are just naturally hotter :p There is a sense of snootiness and holier-than-thou attitude that really bothers me sometimes, so I just brush it off.

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.
