College Freshman

Greek Life: At BYU, there is no greek-life. The University got rid of Sororities and Fraternities a long time ago because they caused lots of clique-yness. The administration thought that it would be best to get rid of them, because even though the service projects that they did were great, BYU is a service-oriented University, and lots of service still got done.

Athletics: I don't play sports or anything, but I absolutely LOVE going to the games. They are so much fun, and everyone gets so into the games! It's something that the entire campus unites about! The Smith Fieldhouse, Richard's Building, and Student Athletic Building, as well as the Levell Edwards Stadium and Helamen Fields are amazing! They are super nice, and the staff is super friendly. One thing I really love about BYU is how nice the players are. At some colleges, the players are cocky and full of themselves, and consider themselves better than everyone else, but not here!

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options when looking for off-campus housing. There are super cheap places to live, but also some pretty expensive places to live. It depends on what you're looking for. There is always something for everyone. They are all fairly close to campus, and they all require that you follow the honor code that BYU has. That is super nice, and it makes them all pretty safe places to live. I come from a pretty unsafe place, so for me, that is a huge plus! Everyone is super friendly, and when you are researching places to live, the managers are super helpful!

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat off campus that much, but whenI do, there is a great variety. You can go to the chain restaurants, such as Wendy's and McDonalds, but there are some real authentic restaurants on Center Street. There are also things that are very "typical Provo", such as Swig or Sodalicious. I think there is a good combination between what you're used to eating and adventereous food.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The administration here at BYU are incredible! They are super nice! Even though they are strict, you signed a contract when you applied to BYU saying that you would follow all of the guidelines in the Honor Code, including visiting hours, alcohol use, and drugs. They are not allowed on campus, and the administration is very strict about that, but it comes with the fact that you agreed to follow those rules when you applied to go here.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received some financial aid, and it was super helpful. Applying for financial wasn't necessarily a hassle, but it was definitely confusing. I didn't really know where to go to apply. I went and talked to the financial aid office this year, and it makes more sense. It was confusing to apply, but honestly, I think any school is going to have a confusing way to apply for financial aid. I don't think that this is only applicable to BYU.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties at BYU are super fun! I like them because they are pretty clean! Where I come from, the parties were dirty and raunchy, and I'm so glad they aren't like that here! That's one of the things that I love about BYU! The people here are so nice and have similar values to me, so I don't feel out of place at the parties!

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I eat at the CougarEat a lot and I've really grown to love it! I really like that they have lots of restaurants, but they also have a "Grab-n-Go" and the "CougarExpress" where you can just pick out pre-made food! That is the best because whenever I am in a rush, I can still get something to eat! The employees at the CougarEat are so friendly and helpful! I spend a lot of time there!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really like living on campus! It's super close to all of my classes and the library! It's close to my work and it's pretty sociable! I live in a really nice dorm, with a kitchen, living room, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms. It's been really nice having a dorm with a kitchen, so I can actually cook food and not have to always buy from the cafeteria and fast-food (even though I do tend to do that a lot!). The people in my building are super nice and easy-going! The only down-side to living on campus is the walk to most social events. Lots of parties and get togethers occur off campus and it's a pretty far walk from the dorms. Other than that, I really like living on campus!!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food choices on campus are excellent. There's a wide range of pretty much anything from boiled eggs to chicken sandwiches to ice cream. There's even Chinese food. It's great and I've never been let down.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in campus is great. I did so my freshman year. I met so many new people because of the activities and dances that we had within our living residence. But at the same time, I have enjoyed living off-campus as well. Provo is a college town so every apartment isn't more than a thirty minute walk. I haven't been in a bad area and I've lived in five different apartment complexes. Each one has had very good social aspects, amenities and free wifi, and low costs.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus, and its really nice. It's cheaper than living on campus. There are tons of options, but most places aren't anything fancy.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: My roommate and I try to go to a new restaurant every two weeks. It's really fun!

College Freshman

Administration: BYU has a strict moral code, but the people who attend here know how to have fun while still following it. If you are looking for the typical college party scene, this isn't the school for you. However, there are a ton of fun and creative things to do, just don't plan on a lot of drugs, alcohol, or sex.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't have to pay any tuition!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Its kind of hard to find the scholarship process, but once you do the task is simple.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always something going on around campus you just have to ask and you will find something to do

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are a great environment with great amenities and a lot of wonderful people

Off-Campus Housing: The housing process seems daunting but once you get through it once its very easy. If you call them directly, it is very easy to get help with the process.

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.
