4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is unique because its a private religious school so everyone here shares the same religion as I do which offers me personally an amazing experience! I love being around people who have the same morals and standards I do!

Overall Experience: I love BYU; really for the money there is NO better option. Great teachers and students, a spirit of ambition and learning on campus. And tons of fun, there are plenty of groups and activities outside of school where you will find friends and family.Professors that really care about your education.

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!

Overall Experience: I love BYU!!! It is such a clean campus. I love the "honor code" which keeps drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, premarital sex, or any of that stuff away from the student body. Everyone here is pretty smart and fun and nice. I mean, of course, there are some exceptions but I love BYU. The professors are nice and caring and this university is very affordable if you are a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I didn't even apply and they gave me a full tuition scholarship just because of my academic standing.

Overall Experience: One of the things that makes my school unique is that it is owned by my faith. This is part of the reason I would choose it all over again because I know that I am going to be in a safe and nurturing environment. This is important to me because I want to further my education but also have fun and meet great people which I know on campus will be safe and clean. I am visiting the campus for the first time later this week but even though I haven't been there I've already had lots of contact with different students and staff who have been very helpful as I've tried to figure the whole college thing out. Even though I still haven't set foot on the campus I know it's going to be an amazing experience from what I've heard about my school and college in general. I'm really excited too for our two-day orientation and homecoming because I've looked at what they have planned and know it is going to be awesome.

Overall Experience: Brigham Young University is considered a private school and has strict standards. Because there are so many things you can get into trouble for, there are a lot of different activities that don't break the law or their honor code. Sometimes it's fun, other times you wish you had just gone to a party school. It also has a strong Mormon background. If you are not of the religion you may find it hard to adjust to just how intense it is. One great example is that they require students to have at least one religion class each term. Oh! They also pray before every class, that was a strange experience. As far as the difficulty of the work I'd say it's pretty rigorous. It's pretty much every Mormons dream school so you have people from literally around the world applying for a spot. Just to get in you have to have a decent gpa and resume. Because you have some of the smartest minds they don't fall shy when it comes to the amount of work you have to do and how much time you put into each class. I will say that the teachers are always willing to work with you and they are interested in helping you pass. I never had a problem going to a professor and asking them to review my paper or give me hints as to what to study for the final.

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed attending Brigham Young University. I really like how my religion is incorporated into my learning experience because it helps me look at educational things with a spiritual perspective. I would definitely choose to go to BYU again if I got to because I like the environment, the professors are awesome and make class fun, and it is affordable.

Overall Experience: I have loved my experience at Brigham Young University. It has been incredibly challenging. My limits have been pushed, my ideas have changed, and much of how I used to look at the world has been shifted. My professors have all been brilliant. They truly are masters of their subjects, and so much more. They have cared for each student. The student body has inspired me. Living the honor code has contributed to a climate of respect and strength. It has been a remarkable opportunity to be studying at this university.

Overall Experience: You attend BYU because you want to. This is not a school for the feint of heart or spirit: you will work harder here academically than you ever had to in your life and be required to live up to a high standard of morals. If you fear exposure to a party ridden society full of booze and lack of chastity like I did, then you will feel the most comfortable here. You will meet the most incredible people among both students and professors. The bonds you build with them will last for years to come--for that alone it is worth it. There will be plenty of unpleasant experiences along the way; to name a few: curfew, no beards, difficult religion exams, and lack of girls in the engineering department. But it is all part of the ride! There are plenty of unforgettable activities around town and a universe of people to date; you will find fun in all places. If you have completed four years of school here yet still haven't found what it is to be happy among hardships of all forms, then you are not a true BYU Cougar.

Overall Experience: I have only completed one full year here so far, but overall I am enjoying it. I dislike the huge size as i feel it takes away from the ability to make learning individualized and personal, but the teachers and students are very nice and the campus is beautiful.

Overall Experience: I love BYU. When I was getting ready to apply for colleges I just had no idea what I wanted. My mother had me apply to many schools and BYU was one of them. I am so glad I did. The campus is beautiful. The professor want you to succeed. There are many resources and opportunities provided to students getting ready to graduate. The school has accredited and the students are hard workers. The atmosphere is very good and conducive to success. It is a sober school. They have an honor code that set it apart from most schools. It is a religious school. It take an interesting approach to learning. In the majority of the classes offered, the professors include how God is present in the subject matter. I took Biology my first year and it was every interesting to learn about evolution through the eyes of someone who believes God exists in all things. I have really enjoyed attending this school. It is a privilege to be attending here and I highly recommend BYU.

Overall Experience: I don't know how I would do if I didn't get to learn about spiritual truths alongside with the many other truths of life. This school not only gives us high goals and standards to achieve, but it also enables us to achieve them by excellent, affordable services and resources.

Overall Experience: I loved attending BYU. It is not for everyone. You have to decide to live by the honor code. If you can be happy doing that, you will receive a quality education with wonderful peers and amazing professors. Also, the value is incredible for the cost.

Overall Experience: I have only experienced a small portion of college life and I love it. BYU is my dream college and I honestly cannot believe that I am able to attend this wonderful university. The classes are challenging, however, they push me to work hard and always aspire to do better. I am so excited to experience the rest of my time here.

Overall Experience: I have wanted to attend Brigham Young University my entire life, so it felt incredibly good to be accepted to that school and know that everything I have worked for has been worth it. I love the environment of BYU--the people, the high standards, how hard students work. I get to be surrounded by thousands of people who share my same religious beliefs, I get to take classes that study different aspects of my religion--there's a great feeling of love and understanding that I really appreciate.

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.
