3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't actually lived off campus yet, but the info I have provided is what i have gathered from family and friends.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of off campus dining, it's really nice for dates, and when you get sick of the cannon center.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Our standard of party is different from the worlds standard, we know how to have a great time with out taking in alcohol or other substances that could effect our well being and memory. With that being said, BYU is a very clean social environment the facilitates meeting new people and making friends who will be a good influence on you.

4 College Junior

Administration: We all agree to live by an honor code, if we are not willing to obey, we don't deserve to study here. The honor code helps create a clean atmosphere to learn and grow, you feel at peace on campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I took out a loan, not with the school, so I have to pay it back with the accumulation of interest, so that's not very fun. I am trying now to apply for more financial aid.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a wide variety of food options on campus. The subway is a favorite but the lines are always super long, even with two stations open. Many complain about the Cannon center but i didn't eat there daily so for me when I did it was a treat, although sometimes portions were closed, limiting your options. I do enjoy how many vending machines there are to make getting a snack between classes easy, but if I hadn't had a food plan no way would I spend so much money!

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: As a freshman I lived at Wyview which I enjoyed the apartment style it was spacious but one of the oldest models. The new Heritage apartments were super nice, I enjoyed visiting friends who lived there, it's large super clean, and as expected from new amenities it had little to no problems in the apartments.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Only the best for BYU.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Can't really tell who is Greek and who is not.

5 College Student

Athletics: The athletes are amazing and very hard working.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: So awesome to be able to live off campus with friends from other schools. Great way to get to meet new people!

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The food is delicious and it's nice to have variety.

4 College Student

Party Scene: They are so fun and the people/environment is amazing.

5 College Student

Administration: Both leaders and students obey and respect the honor code. It's a wonderful environment.

3 College Student

Scholarships: The scholarships are nearly impossible to obtain and very sparce. It would be nice to be able receive any scholarship, even if it was small.

4 College Student

Campus Food: The food is very delicious a convenient.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Even though the food can be pretty expensive I've never had something that I haven't liked or that has been really low quality.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only reason I give it a great instead of amazing is because I lived in Old Heritage and the buildings were extremely old and were being torn down after I was done living in them. So as a result we were surrounded by construction which was extremely loud and annoying. Though everything else was awesome. The people were great and being so close to campus is something I'm going to miss.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Therapeutic Recreation: The program has had several changes in the past few years. It changed schools within the university. My classes contain students that have had three different application processes, so it is a little bit confusing. The application process is supposed to be a little more difficult now. It is in the business school, so you have to apply with the business prerequisites, but it should still be easier to get into than other business majors mostly due to lack of competition.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The most abundant diversity is probably political. I have friends with all sorts of political beliefs. Religion is hardly diverse because this is a church school. Economic background is slightly diverse. I would say that most students come from rich families. There are a lot of students that have lower income, but I would say that the culture at the school stems from wealth.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Therapeutic Recreation: Within the major is awesome. The teachers are terrific. They love their jobs and want all students to love it as much as they do. Internship and job opportunities are almost limitless. This major requires being well-rounded. It is healthcare plus physical activity plus business training plus more. Outside of the major stinks. People think this is a dumb major. They think that it is easy and all we do is just play outside and go on hikes and stuff. They don't think it requires any brain power. And, BYU students are super smart (generally).

5 College Sophomore

Academics: BYU has some of the best professors and classes. The classes where I have to read to learn everything are occasional, but most classes are not like that. You have to do some reading. The professors make sure there are lots of examples and hands-on things to help the students learn.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The library is great. We have a lot of things that other Universities don't have. The building has many study areas. And, I love the conference rooms that can be reserved in the library.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The scenery is great. We are right by the mountains: tons of hiking, outdoors recreation, etc. You can get out of the city within minutes. Lots of people come to the University sporting events, not just students and a few alumni. The stadiums are always packed and with lots of families.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people are fairly attractive. BYU is a hipster school. Lots of hipster style. Colorful clothing is everywhere. You won't find a lot of facial hair because of the honor code at BYU. BYU is also very social. There are activities around campus every day.

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 ( 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.
