5 College Student

Health & Safety: There are police cars everywhere in case of emergencies and the campus student force is always on watch. Alcohol isn't a problem at our school but you can never be too sure since just about anything can happen. Nevertheless I feel safe being there and never had any troubles or problems from anyone.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: BYU is rated as a high quality school and a degree from them is viewed in high regard. Since the job network in the school is very good it's often very easy to find a good job that fits your career or an internship in a job you're pursuing.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus. I couldn't afford it but from the people I that I know I've heard it's great. We just had some new buildings constructed and the perks of living there are great. Best part is that it's close to school so you can go home and rest.

5 College Student

Athletics: I'm not very big on sports, but I know that BYU students are passionate about their teams. It's such an integral part of the school and everyone is proud of it. There are so many fans that sometimes you get tired of hearing about it but it's never annoying or off putting. Team games are a part of being a BYU student as well as being in a club. That's where you make the most friends.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: BYU is an excellent choice of school. I love it there. I've just started and I'm already seeing how different college is from high school. Even though the classes might get hectic and busy, the teachers are always there to help. The grading system is great and really the only reason you aren't doing well is mostly cause you're not doing your part in all this. I should know. The atmosphere around the school is relaxing and the focus on high standards makes this a great school to be in.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Drinking, drugs, and premarital sex are against the honor code.

Campus Housing: Good bang for your buck. I ended up paying partial of the price of housing and lucked out into getting a single room.

Athletics: RAWR, RAWR, RWAR, RAWR-RAWR-RAWR, RAWR, RAWR, RWAR-RAWR-RAWR, GO COUGARS!

Overall Experience: Good school, cheap, religious, plenty of majors, 10/10 would do again.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Some of the on-campus housing is new and nice, but some of it is old and gross, and there is usually construction going on. The New Heritage Halls are nice and new and clean, but they have somewhat of a hotel-feel to them, which I didn't like, but they are actual apartments and you can cook your own meals and you have a bathroom. Helaman halls housing is more like a real dorm, and with it you have to have a meal plan because you don't have you're own kitchen. You can eat at the Cannon center, and the food is alright, but it can help you gain your freshman 15. Personally I prefer cooking for myself. Maintenance was good. A lot of fun social things happen on on-campus housing.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I love BYU athletics because it really unites the school. Our sports teams are good, and the provide a great rallying point for students to come together and support their school. Most of the time the student sections at games or meets are full, and there are traditions the fans have and traditions the athletes have, and it makes for a fun atmosphere.

As far as athletic facilities, for a non-athlete, they are not great, but they are good. I haven't used them a ton, but I do like that there is a specific work-out room for only women.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at BYU has been great. It's been hard due to some personal circumstances, but it's been great. One thing that makes this school unique is that it provides opportunities for undergraduates to get experience in their chosen field of study. I am a Molecular Biology major and I've been working in a research lab for 4 years. I have two publications in a reputable scientific journal, I've presented posters at many conferences and conventions, and the research experience I have had is invaluable. BYU has helped prepare me to have better chances of getting into a good graduate school, and doing well in graduate school through its unique opportunities for undergraduates.

The other thing is the professors. There are many professors here who are willing to help you with content, with special circumstances, and who can just be your friend. The professor for whom I do research is a great man, and I am lucky to be a part of his lab and learn from him not only about the research and the science, but also about life.

I would choose BYU again, definitely. If I were doing things over again. My research experience is something I couldn't get at other universities, the professors and students are friendly, and there is a good atmosphere at BYU.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professores want to help you suceed. they do not lower their expectations but help you to rise to the expectations.

3 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms and the social scene are very good, the apartments are expensive.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: As far as I know the Greek life on my college campus does not exist.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The teams are always good but never great. The fans are passionate and cheer loudly.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel that the professors always provide a means for you to suceed if you are willing to work for it.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not once have I ever felt in any sense of danger here at BYU or even in Provo. It is a very safe environment.

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.
