College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have yet to live in off campus housing, but my answers above reflect how the process of picking out a place for next semester was for me. I am excited to see what my new home will be like!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants here vary from chains to unique hole-in-the-walls. Most places are affordable and delicious, and only offer delicious choices. Many of these choices are also healthful, which is great because I tend to eat out more than I should.

5 College Freshman

Administration: It is easy to understand why all aspects of life are enforced to the extent they are. I came to this school because of the environment that thrives here, and it would not be possible without the rules some people deem impossible to live with.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties here are fun yet sober. They always have the best food and the hottest guys, and despite what most people think, BYU does not have a curfew. It is also nice to feel safe on campus and at parties, knowing you are surrounded by good, trustworthy people.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I don't blame BYU for any financial problems I have had. The scholarship program is competitive and I know if I want one I have to work a lot harder. I do have some problems with my financial aid because I got a loan that I am paying interest on already, simply because my dad has a good job. Sadly, that does not mean he's giving me anything so I will have plenty of debt when I get done here.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I rarely eat out due to lack of money and the fact that I have a full kitchen at home, but when I do, I have never chosen wrong! The Creamery on Ninth East is delicious, anywhere in the CougarEat is great, and the BYU food to-go is amazing! Especially turkey cranberry sandwiches.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the new Heritage Halls, ranging between 0-2 years old, and they are insanely awesome. They are close to campus, completely new, have a full kitchen and living room, and nice bedrooms. My only wish is that they had bathtubs for those stressful post-test nights, but the showers are still nice. They are a good price for the amenities, and it's going to be hard to get used to living off campus in cheaper housing next semester after being so spoiled!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love it here! The people are the best. students and instructors alike. I love how much they want to get the undergraduates into research labs. I wish I could have done a program where you get a bachelor's and master's at the same time... Oh well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes here are great. Sometimes they are pretty big, but once you get into your major, they are small. There are so many interesting class you can take! I wish I could be a student forever!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most places are super expensive or affordable and falling apart. There is limited on-campus housing though, so everyone lives off-campus. Management is usually a pain.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places to eat: Belgian, Peruvian, Japanese, Singaporean, etc. You name a country, you can probably find a very authentic restaurant here. I wish I had more money so I could try them all!

5 College Junior

Administration: BYU is very strict in comparison to other school. I love it. Some people complain, but you agree to live by these standards when you decide to come. If you are not willing to live by such strict rules, maybe you should be at a different school...

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The best advice I have is just apply even if you think you won't qualify.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I think it is pretty good, but eating out in general is more expensive than just buying and cooking my own meals.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: 3 places-mostly freshmen. Too far or too expensive

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of the off-campus housing that I've seen has some pretty great pricing, and usually it's within walking distance of BYU campus. The parking is a bit of a hassle sometimes but I haven't heard a lot of complaints about it. The main annoyance is that if you're attending BYU you either have to live in BYU contracted housing, or you have to sign a waiver.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't been to a lot of off-campus dining, but it looks good. Everyone talks about how good Tucano's and Café Rio are, and there are plenty of options for pizza.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Yes, I'm saying that BYU's strictness is the best. One of BYU's main objectives is to bring the students closer to Christ, and part of the way to do that is to set strict academic and social policies that not only protect the students from themselves, but protect them from other students and their mistakes. Last year BYU was the top alcohol-free school in the country, and it's great!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: This is just my personal opinion, because I don't much like parties with a bunch of people. I think the parties that BYU throws are good and creative, but I do wish there could be options for people with, say, a fear of large crowds. However, not in terms of dances. Whenever I see a dance they're throwing (not the fancy ones) there aren't usually a lot of people, so I'd actually feel more awkward joining in than if they had a larger crowd.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid pretty much paid for all of my tuition, and the process getting there wasn't bad. Just fill out the FAFSA as best as you and your parent(s) can, when you can, and then if your parent(s) find things out about their taxes that are a little different than they put on the FAFSA, they can go into the FAFSA and change it. It's really convenient.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I love how many options they have for people like me who need gluten free meals, though I do wish they had a few sugar free desserts thrown in more often. The prices aren't too bad, though they could be lower. The food itself is top notch.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I actually live off campus, but what I've seen of on-campus housing looks good. New buildings vs. more "antiquated" buildings--you can choose. The social atmosphere is great because everyone has similar religious beliefs and values. The cost isn't too bad, and most of the housing is only a few minutes' walk from classes.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are readily available to students, and intramural sports are very fun and welcoming.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of BYU approved housing off campus, and as such, have pretty high living standards.

4 College Freshman

Administration: BYU takes its honor code very seriously, but it is in the nature of the students to obey it naturally anyway.

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.
