4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love BYU, but I would want to change a few things. The classes are taught by some of the most brilliant people, but the general ed. classes and most prerequisite to major courses are very large. There are no options for smaller classes for the students that learn differently. The variety of individual courses is very expansive which makes for a fun course load.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU is iconic. The networking of the school could get anyone a job right after graduation. Internships and job recruitment happen in different majors almost weekly which provide for lots of opportunities for students to be placed early on in their college career.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Although I've never had to use the health services, I do know that there are lots of safety precautions implemented and I feel entirely safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I liked living on campus, but at times it was difficult. Some housing is far from campus, and other housing is just too small. The newest housing has cozy apartments, but doesn't allow for much of an open, social atmosphere amongst people on the same floor. The dorm housing is very social, but doesn't have enough storage space, and is less clean.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm a large advocate for sports, and BYU helps me with that immensely. The fanbase for athletics is immense. Intramurals are all encompassing, and occur almost every night with choices for anyone.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to go to a school like Brigham Young University. The classes are tough, but I have been able to learn a lot and grow academically and spiritually while on campus. The environment is stimulating and social. It's a good place to have a wholesome college experience. Professors and peers expect big things from students which creates a competitive and motivating element to learning. BYU is definitely a place for the studious and perseverant, but is exciting and fun too!

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.

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.
