3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: People are generally loving and accepting, but you do see some who forget to practice what they preach.

5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Kids drink, but it is not socially accepted, so you rarely see it. In my four years, I only knew a couple of students personally who drank while students at BYU.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I love BYU, but as with anything, there is definitely room for improvement.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I think career prospects are good overall; however, my particular degree (psychology) has left me few job opportunities.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Overall, safety is good. However, the honor code can serve to further victimize survivors of sexual assault. The honor code "police" can also be used to attack people-- it seems to be "guilty till proven innocent" instead of the other way around.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I am still best friends with the girls I met in my freshman dorm. My biggest complaint is that there needs to be more married student housing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I had a great experience at BYU. I would choose it again for value and quality of education.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletics are a huge part of school pride at Brigham Young University. Games are PACKED.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: There is very little diversity on campus. This goes for race (almost exclusively white), political beliefs (almost exclusively conservative), religion (almost exclusively Mormon), and sexual orientation (almost exclusively heterosexual).

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Due to the high population of to-the-book Mormons, alcohol and drug use is almost non-existant.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: "Traditional" crimes such as theft, robbery, assault, etc. are generally not a problem on the BYU campus. However, sexual assault is a serious problem that is addressed in a severely inappropriate manner by this school's administration. I hope they remedy that soon. As a man, I feel quite safe on campus, but in the name of solidarity I can't claim that BYU is absolutely safe for everyone.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't had an exceptional experience with a professor on either side of the spectrum (good or bad) but they provide a high-quality learning environment.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Heritage Halls buildings are relatively new and very nice. I'm planning on spending another semester there again.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Beautiful campus, but a little too zealous for my taste. The nearly-completely white (and absolutely Mormon) student body can sometimes give off vibes reminiscent of a hive mind. Not very accepting of LGBT populations at all. It's a safe and clean campus with high quality education, but its social element is off-putting to say the least.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the classes and teachers are great and enlightening. I've had three teachers that I couldn't stand because they were on their high horse, expecting everyone to make their GE class the focus of their education. It shouldn't be that way, but the majority of classes have been fantastic.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The college will help me get a great internship when I finish my program, which could lead to a job in New York or LA.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Sometimes the honor code office can have skewed views and those views bias their opinions about victims of sexual assaults. Sometimes in an unfair, negative way.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: This is based on rumors I've heard. I've never lived in on campus housing, but it's ridiculously hard to find a place off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't think we have the greek life you're referring to except for the National Honors Society group.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great school that provides a high end education. I am a much better photographer than I ever could have been (in this amount of time) had I tried to learn on my own. The school makes who you are as a person extremely important, and I appreciate that.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics have a huge following among BYU students and members of the LDS church. I struggle to be interested in it, I feel like it's just hype.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on campus

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived there and liked it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have greek life. And it doesn't bother me that we don't. I could care less. Actually, I'm really glad we don't have it. I don't want to be around that kind of atmosphere.

5 College Student

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol really aren't a part of the social scene at all.

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.
