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.

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.

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.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a great fan base and supportive alumni.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Certainly not perfect, but it is the most well rounded school there is.

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.

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.
