4 College Student

Campus Food: Lines can be long. But great overall.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: Heritage Halls is the way to go.

4 College Student

Athletics: Very nice STAT classes, and accessibility to the gym facilities

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I'm not too sure. I rarely eat off campus

3 College Student

Party Scene: Not to much partying, mostly housing activities.Or the Wall

5 College Student

Administration: I really like how the Honor Code is enforced. I feel safer while I walk down campus. If we didn't have it I'm not sure I would've applied

3 College Student

Scholarships: As an international student you can't receive any BYU scholarships until you have been in school for a whole academic year

4 College Student

Campus Food: I really like the places on campus, great food

5 College Student

Campus Housing: I really love Heritage Halls. I've had an amazing experience. It's a beautiful place,

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.

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.
