4 College Sophomore

Academics: In general, I've had a selection of excellent professors who would give you the shirt off their backs if they thought it would help you. I really felt connected to them, even in the larger classes. The workload can honestly be a little insane sometimes. Registration was very easy. The curriculums are pretty good, although I really dislike some of our GEs, as all classes at BYU tend to have a moderate to rigorous load, and so it felt rather unfair to be forced to study something you had no interest in that could potentially destroy your GPA. But I imagine all colleges that teach such a wide variety of subjects are like this.

Diversity: Considering this school is designed to contain mostly LDS students, it's not surprising that we lack religious diversity. Ethnic diversity is there, but not as much as some places. Political beliefs are widely diverse, as are economic backgrounds. I have met four people with alternate sexual orientations over straight, so I think that's a pretty good amount, considering I don't know very many people anyway.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have yet to see anyone doing drugs. No one here will pressure you into drugs at all.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is no drinking and any sort of drugs are not allowed on campus and students sighn a personal honor code that explains that they will not drink or do drugs, steal, or any other misconduct. It the honor code is broken they have to talk to the school dean.

Overall Experience: If you go and ask ad visors and career centers they will help out in anyway possable.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My school does not have dorms but rather has housing and apartments very close to campus. I had free parking, free laundry, and in my apartment complex we were always doing stuff together.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Brigham Young University of Idaho is a wonderful school! The teachers there are always willing to help and explain things if you do not understand. It is a school focused on helping students not only excel in academics but also gives students opportunities to learn to excel as leaders and learn how to serve in communities. The school does not have sports programs, but has intermural teams and that allows everyone to participate. Also, there is a no drinking and no drug policy for all students and professors giving you people that are focused on getting an education.

Party Scene: we have people over for dinner and there's ward dances and stuff, but we don't have drinking parties or anything like that. BYU will sponsor some fun dances though

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: They are fun, with great food and awesome decorations

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It's challenging yet, very rewarding. I learn a lot and feel accomplished

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I am accepting of anyone and I hope others are the same. I've seen people be very accepting and people who aren't so much, so I see it both ways

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You sign an honor code coming into BYU, and it's expected that it will be followed. We hold ourselves accountable to that and , in turn, hold other students to that standard as well

5 College Sophomore

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at this school is great. Each sport team represents our school and our values very well. The school spirit here is huge! I love being apart of this school's teams.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's against the honor code to even have sexual relations before being married so it is not a big problem at BYU. Also, they do take sexual assaults very,very seriously. There were people who we inappropriately grabbing women who were running and an email was sent out to everyone to warn them as well as to advise not running in certain areas and to be with a buddy.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, my overall experience at this school has been great. There is a great environment that keeps the student focused on their goals and help is always their to help them succeed. I would choose to go to my school again because I truly feel like I can and will succeed here if I utilize all that this school offers.

Health & Safety: You're basically surrounded by people who love Jesus. There are a few wackjobs but they mostly don't do anything. You don't hear about much crime, and when anything happens, it's big news.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Heritage Halls apartments are the best! I've never had an apartment I liked more

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.
