3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Disadvantage to housing for BYU students is the requirement for the housing to be BYU approved, which creates costs of rent to increase and availability more difficult to find. Many of the places are older in date, so quality isn't amazing. However, there are some nice places to stay, they're just harder to find.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is plenty of variety. Not many places are open late, not even on weekends, which I find strange being in a college town.

3 College Junior

Administration: Most of the things that the campus is strict on (like no drinking, drugs, etc) is appropriate and seems fair. The parking and attendance is more strict than I believe necessary.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: There are limited scholarships available for BYU students. However, there are some available.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: For the most part, many of the party scenes around BYU are clean, fun and comfortable.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Decent food. Not the best, but food is still food!

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: New on-campus living is great and spacious! It's a little expensive, but the services are great!

5 College Student

Athletics: There's enormous support of our teams, but it's not an overwhelming part of campus. If students are indifferent to athletics, they can avoid them easily.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There is a considerable amount of off-campus housing located very quickly to campus. It's not new, but it's clean and well maintained.

Administration: We have an administration that is concerned not only about enforcing the rules, but turning out good men and women. They truly care about the student body.

4 College Student

Scholarships: The merit-based scholarship applications are so easy to apply for, and you can get a half-tuition scholarship with a pretty normal GPA. I imagine that talent or other types or scholarships are just as easy to apply to.

Campus Food: The Cannon center is decent. Some food is fantastic, in quality, presentation, and taste, but others are unbelievably horrific. However, there are lots of options. The CougarEat is also a great option, but the dining hall isn't terribly well maintained. It gets pretty busy, but it's good. The pricing across campus, including at the Creamery, is ridiculous. I don't understand why, but food is sometimes up to 50% more expensive on campus than it would be at a normal grocery store. That just isn't right.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: I absolutely adore my dorms! They're a fantastic combination of apartment-style living and dormitories. These buildings are brand-new, fully furnished, well-designed and spacious. The standard of living here is very high. Since the dorm is designed as an apartment, the social life is a bit restricted; there's not much of a reason to leave! It's very close to campus and to university grocery stores. The problem is the parking: there is almost literally none. It's aggravating, but that's a campus-wide problem.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is tough getting any type of reasonable normal housing. It feels like everything is really nice or really bad. No middle ground.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I like eating off campus a lot. It is nicer overall and the places are better to eat at.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness is extremely high, but it keeps us all focused on school and not the other stuff that can distract us.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't receive anything. It is hard to get scholarships.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is no party seen. Enough said.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Really I would say it is average. There aren't a ton of options to choose from. It is ok food, but it does get a little pricy. The meal plans are terrible. I would never in a million years buy one. They are such rip off. I am a starving college student, why would I need all of that food?

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The on campus housing at BYU all depends on where and what type of housing you have. I was fortunate to stay in the New Heritage Halls and it was extremely nice to be in them. I have seen others that are not so nice though. The social atmosphere is great and it is really encouraged at BYU in general.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The off Campus housing is good. Closer to Campus is more expensive and not as nice, further from campus is better quality and less expensive, however, you are not close to campus.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is good. There are enough restaurants to go to a different one almost every time you go out to eat. It keeps things interesting.

Administration: The Faculty really want you to be successful. They enforce the rules because they are helping. You accepted to live the Honor Code by applying to BYU. Now it is your turn to follow up on that commitment.

Party Scene: If you are looking for a party with Drugs and Alcohol, then you won't find it here. But if you are looking for a party with Friends, Good music, And a good time, then you can find it anywhere on campus. It all depends on what you are looking for.

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.
