4 College Junior

Greek Life: It's great bc it's almost nonexistent

3 College Junior

Athletics: They're doing away with sports soon

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU Hawaii is definitely laid back. Even the teachers.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus my freshman year, and this was before they had finished construction on the Heritage Halls project. Though my building was a few decades old and there were six of us to one bathroom and a rather tight kitchen/living room, I loved the relationship we had with each other and roommates and the others in our building. Now, I have had a chance to see the improvements made as other friends have lived in the new housing options. They are extremely spacious, clean, close to campus and still have a pretty strong community about them.

5 College Junior

Athletics: One of the greatest ways to see the school spirit in a BYU student is to ask them about the next game coming up. Students are extremely aware of the athletic achievements their fellow students make in a great variety of sports, all year round. The student section is always packed at the football stadium and pushing full at each basketball game I've been to. Also, BYU athletics bring back alumni and their families every year.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Brigham Young University is wonderful at opening doors for its students. Its high standards recommend both undergraduates and graduates for exceptional internships and careers. Beyond simply preparing students to be contributing members to the work force, students are encouraged to build up their communities and be a light to those around them through service and leadership.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Since all students commit to living the honor code, problems caused by alcohol consumption are very rare.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: The Residence Halls Association puts on incredible activities that are a blast!

4 College Senior

Athletics: Students love intramural sports. Student activity classes (volleyball, basketball, tennis, racquetball, soccer, jogging, flexibility, etc.) are also very popular.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Attending BYU has brought countless opportunities into my life.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU is an awesome school with some very dedicated and inspired professors. It has a very competitive environment, which can push you to succeed, but can also be discouraging depending on the class and your personality.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are kept at appropriate sizes. The professors are interested in helping the students. Courses are intellectually enlightening.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from BYU is very valuable because the school is known for producing high-quality, honest workers. Career prospects are generally very good.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I would rather be on this campus than any other.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Heritage Halls dorms are excellent. They are clean and have all the amenities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic events are well-attended. Students enjoy going to support and show school spirit.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: BYU's environment is safe and uplifting. The students who attend all have similar standards and goals. The majority of my classes have been intellectually enlarging. My professors astound me with their ability to teach and encourage understanding.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: All of the professors are highly interested in their subjects, so they teach with passion

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU is known by several large companies as producing highly dedicated, innovative and hard working leaders

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: One of my favorite things about campus is that at any time you can call a police officer to walk you anywhere you need to be so you feel safe

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms lend themselves to socializing and making friends. Helaman Halls has a set up such that girls can easily socialize with girls and guys with guys. However, the way visiting hours are set up in Helaman, it is less than easy to make friends with those of the opposite gender

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU Provo is an excellent school, where the students all hold a very high moral standard. Because of this, the students are obviously more focused and invested in their education. I would choose my school again if given the chance because i feel that the students and teachers are unified in their goal of creating a great generation of leaders.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is extremely monitored. The BYU police will be there instantly if there is any suspicious activity at all. Some say that it is too much, but I feel that it is better to be safe than sorry.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think that by graduating from BYU will look good to lots of employers, but not as good as BYU would hope. The classes are very hard on purpose and the school tries to be close to a Harvard level but I don't feel that it is. I have learned from people who went on to graduate schools that BYU was harder and more stressful. The expectations put on the students who go here is extremely high.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: When I lived on campus in the "New Heritage" complexes I was able to enjoy life comfortably as well as be social and have a good time with others. Loved every second of it!

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.
