5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone has a lot of school spirit. They work hard and are all very nice too.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a happily married man with 6 kids and a full time job, going back to school seemed a little crazy! But I am so glad I made the decision to return for my EMBA at BYU. It is difficult juggling family, work, and school, but I have learned its not really about time-management, but self-management. Work responsibilities are intense right now, requiring many hours. Fortunately, my employer is covering most of the cost of my education. It makes me want to give my best work when I am there. My family understands that when I lock myself in my study room I will emerge when I can. There has to be exceptions, of course. Just the other night my wife and teenage daughter were having a 'budget discussion' about how much her homecoming dress should cost. I had to stop studying to engage and help resove the budget situation with our dramatic teen. My studies suffered that night. The hardest part about returning to school is finding balance to be successful in all these important areas at the same time.

The best part about school is that I have an amazing group of professionals to work with. Our team works well together and we will succeed together. The instructors are great, classes are great, I am enjoying what I am learning.

Overall Experience: BYU has been an incredible experience for me this past year. The quality of education is remarkable. I enjoy going to classes I'm interested in. The social environment is really fun. I've made so many friends who share my same standards, which is important to me. Provo is such a fun town and we go hiking, to concerts, and go for endless soda runs. Overall, college has been so unique and special to me because I've chosen the school, my classes, and my friends. BYU is a great fit for me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy going to BYU because, for the most part, the students are hard working and that helps to push me along to be better, while at the same time, I'm sure that I help others out. Usually people are kinda aloof until you get to know them, so I often joke about electron orbital method for seating. If there's no one that you know, you find an empty table. If there are no empty tables, you pick the opposite side of a table with a single occupant. People are generally nice, but breaking through that first barrier is the hard part.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU combines secular learning with spiritual learning. Prayers are offered before many classes and the campus environment is uplifting. Students share the same high morals and standards that I hold to be important. And its not just an I-have-to type of thing. The students want to learn, want to have fun, and want to be a part of this unique campus. I love attending this college because I am not only gaining an education but I am gaining skills for life.

Overall Experience: I love BYU, honestly coming to this school is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I feel like it has helped me become the person that I am today. The campus life is very fun but it is also clean. There are a lot of people with the same values as me here so the living environment is very satisfying. Yes classes are hard but that is college for you! Professors are awesome. There are a lot of opprotunites to serve others as well. Clean campus!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love being at Brigham Young University. My experience so far has been fantastic. I am a member of the swimming and diving team. The coaches are wonderful and so supportive. I can really tell that they care about us as individuals and want us to reach our full potential. The professors are also amazing. They do their best to engage the students in the lectures. I've been able to receive great help from tutors whenever I have needed it. The study groups before every exam have been very helpful. I also love being surrounded by peers with great morals that encourage me to do the right thing.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU is full of great teachers and students. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help. BYU offers great classes and its large student body allow for more diverse classes and majors. The religious environment is one of my favorite things about BYU. No matter what class you're in, you can look forward to hearing inspirational connections between the class topic and God or some other religious point. And the religion classes themselves are some of the best classes at BYU. The teachers know a lot about their subjects and want their students to succeed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think BYU does a great job at combing in religion and education all into one. It helps keep you focused on the most important things in life. Not only this but the schooling is great. A good staff and a good courses make for a very nice learning environment here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of my favorite experiences at my school have involved my classes and what I have learned. I have also made great friends, some which I will stay in contact with my whole life.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU is unique in that it acts as the LDS Mecca for young adults. The curriculum is getting increasingly harder with each new class of incoming freshmen, and staying with your studies must be your first priority if you want to succeed at this school. You have to be willing to sacrifice loafing or socializing in order to get good grades and keep learning. It's hard, and sometimes you get lost in "the bubble," so it's important to remember who you are and represent yourself correctly, even if it seems like being you isn't the coolest option. This is a school that will challenge you in all aspects of life. This is a school that might rip you apart, but if you let it, it will rebuild you into something glorious and unstoppable.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Everyone is so focused on learning and becoming better. While the school could use more diversity most people are helpful and friendly. The staff has always been very helpful and really want you to succeed. I struggled at the start of one class and my professor saw it. He reached out to me and invited me to meet with him. He talked to me about how we could help me catch up and gave me ideas that helped me be more successful.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU is amazing! Not being from Utah, being around many other people - both LDS and non-LDS - with high standards is extremely refreshing. I would encourage serious students from any religion to apply to BYU if they want to focus on scholarship without the problems many other universities encounter due to the distractions of alcohol, drugs, etc. That is not to say that we don't have fun! We find many other ways to have a good (wholesome) time. Sporting events are amazing and very participatory, even for the audience. Overall, BYU is a wonderful place to get a great education!

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.
