4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my professors. The class sizes are big so it's hard for them to get to know all the students, but if you make an effort to reach out to them they are willing to help you with whatever you need.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Every day you will find booths for jobs/internships! Always so many opportunities to be apart of.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: BEST HOUSING EVER. So many options! You can definitely find whatever you're looking for here.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: No Greek Life. Instead there are lots of clubs!

4 College Junior

Athletics: Lots of athletics to get involved in, but they are very competitive! Seems like you have to be the best of the best. The good news is that there are lots of intramurals--plenty of things for everyone to do! School spirit is AWESOME.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love BYU. Such a clean, safe, service-oriented campus filled with tons of activities ALL THE TIME. Everyone seems like they know what they're doing here, and everyone is really friendly.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek Life............................

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: BYU has great athletics programs and it is exciting to be a part of such a spirited and united school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school. I see a level of excellence that I doubt I can find anywhere else. The hard work of students combined with the honesty and integrity everyone strives for makes studying here an absolute pleasure. You will never hear classes are easy at BYU, but they increase your knowledge and make you work harder than you ever thought you would.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Always felt very safe on campus. I always left my stuff in the library and knew it would be safe. I knew there were a lot of resources for my mental and physical safety if I needed them.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I got into a top law school and got some great internships during my time at BYU. I'm not sure how much my degree would have helped me get a great job.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I love Helaman for the social aspect of it. It was pretty pricey but it was great as a freshman. It's been 6 years so I don't remember it super well.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I'm not a big sports person but it seemed like people enjoyed watching them. The student gym could be better.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Granted, I don't have anything to compare BYU to (yet), but I loved my experience. BYU cares so much about its students and is full of opportunities in so many fields. The professors are intelligent and kind and truly care about their students. The post grad resources are very helpful and the outside opportunities for enrichment and growth are vast.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I think the biggest crime on campus is parking in the wrong spot.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit and involvement. The teams themselves are not very enthusiastic when training, and off the official playing field. A lot of merchandise available revolves around the sports. There is a bombardment of advertising for the purchase of tickets. There is a lot of fan support. The facilities aren't as impressive as what is available for other students at other universities within the state.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The environment is good. Some fellow students feel that they are above you and are sometimes unwilling to help. The computer programs constantly lose your information and one must meet the departments in person to fix all of the errors. The people that one might call for help, often don't believe that he/she has tried the suggestions given.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far, I've only had one or two professors who I felt had a different teaching style than what works for me. They have all been very understanding and helpful when it comes to issues with grades or confusion during lectures. They genuinely care about their students' success and work really hard to make sure we have the best chance possible of doing well in their classes. They are also cool and friendly so it's not awkward when you see them around campus!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU is nationally recognized for several of its programs and their huge value in the job market. For example, I'm studying computer science with an emphasis in animation - and while computer science is a rapidly growing field already, BYU's animation program is one of the best in the country and its students are often recruited by major film studios even before they graduate. There is also a career center on campus where students can get connected with employers and alumni in their field, have practice job interviews, and learn how to write standout resum├ęs.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: From my experience and what I've heard, campus crime and student safety issues are extremely rare at BYU. Campus police are quick and responsive, and can often be seen around campus. In the few years I've been a student here, I have never had any issues with things being stolen or any other problems. I'm sure things happen once in a while but it's so rare that when it does, everyone hears about it.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in the newest dorms (Heritage Halls) my first 2 semesters and loved it! I had so much space for everything and the apartments were very nice. I had awesome neighbors and roommates, and the whole complex was generally very social and fun. On-campus housing is a bit more pricey but worth it to be so close to your classes and to have such a nice, fully-furnished apartment. Those apartments are also in high demand, so if you don't apply there early you most likely won't get in. Other than that the housing process is straightforward and simple.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are a huge part of student life at BYU.The student section is completely full at every game I've been to, and we all get super loud and into the game. Almost all sports are very well advertised at our school, so everyone knows about upcoming games and events. The varsity teams here regularly compete in conference and national championships, so fans are well rewarded with lots of wins and exciting games. I wasn't interested in sports at all in high school, but coming to BYU got me going to every game I can!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love BYU. It's very difficult at times to stay on top of everything I need to do for my classes and extracurricular activities, but I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. The student life is awesome, there are always things going on, just about everyone you pass on campus is friendly, and the overall atmosphere is uplifting and positive. The students get very involved in sports and other events, and the school spirit is off the charts. I've had so many life-changing experiences here, made lifelong friends, and learned more than I ever thought I could. I can't imagine choosing any other school!

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I'm not very active in the nightlife, but I'm sure it's there. I do know that people are always planning get together's, or going out to concerts or places to dance.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I feel like parties that are well known only really emerge around big events like Homecoming and Halloween. But individuals throw their own smaller parties all the time as well.

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.
