3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There's a wide range of good and bad quality apartments, managers, and prices.

5 College Freshman

Academics: It's so fun for me, I don't even mind the workload.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm happy with my program. I would do it again. I want to be an editor. I don't currently have any concerns about finding a job.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love playing these sports, almost everyone does them. The hard part is they aren't well advertised, so unless you are going out of your way to keep yourself up to speed you'll miss it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard to say more. Really housing is alright price-wise. But because there is a housing monopoly (I.E. BYU students can only lived in approved housing) it feels like land lords don't really care to make the place attractive.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: If you're looking for diversity, this probably isn't the place. But at the same time BYU campus offers lots of opportunities for those of different background. There are opportunities to learn and immerse yourself in lots of different cultures.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My program is really good. Great professors that have open door policies of letting me come to their office and discuss my concerns. They really want us to succeed.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: All Chemical Engineering scholarships are paid, and BYU gets recruited by companies all over.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It really is good, I like that I can rely on a clean great atmosphere for study and learning. My one issue is I'm pretty cops only look for parking ticket violations and don't really do anything else.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Lots of social activities going on, for the most part, people love hanging out with their neighbors.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Seriously, everyone has a scholarship.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most places you feel ripped off for what you're getting. Lots of old places run by people who just want to suck all the money they can from you while doing as little as possible to make living there comfortable.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: I really don't see any option of public transportation.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a nice selection of different types of food. Not a lot of ethnic food, but lots of niche type restaurants that are really good at one thing.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Honestly, I feel pretty safe on campus

5 College Sophomore

Academics: BYU is definitely an awesome place to learn. I am constantly busy writing papers and studying for tests, but I feel that all of the professors truly care about their students in that they really want them to learn. I have never had a bad encounter with a professor that I honestly tried to communicate with.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My parents mostly deal with this, but I recently applied for a loan for a study abroad program, and I didn't receive what I applied for, when my roommate did. This was frustrating, because now I am having to deal with figuring out other ways to pay for it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of really cool places that are very specific to the Provo area that I love. I am vegetarian, and I feel like there are enough options for me to be able to enjoy myself and still have the pleasure of eating out.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus housing is generally the freshman dorms, which have extremely strict and unreasonable rules. As a BYU student, you are required to sign the Honor Code, in which you agree to abide by certain moral standards. Since students sign this, I feel that the dorm rules, such as visiting hours only twice a week, is very unrealistic. If students want to participate in inappropriate behavior, they will find a place to do so. All students should not have to suffer extreme housing rules for these reasons. The social atmosphere of on-campus housing is good, and there are always plenty activities to participate in.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Although BYU is a religious and conservative school, most of the students I come in contact seem to be very open minded and understanding towards people who do not have the same beliefs, whether they are religious, political, or ethical. Maybe I have this perspective since most of my friends are in the arts, since I am an Acting major.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Living in off campus housing is a real struggle, mostly because, unless you are married, you are required to live in BYU approved housing. If you want to live in off campus housing, you have to apply. If you are declined, you then have to pay a fee.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: I have a laptop, so I rarely have to use an on campus computer. The main problem about campus is the wifi situation. It is often very spotty, and hard to find even in places that should have full service, like the library and classrooms.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are always a lot of opportunities to go to music shows, dance parties, and dessert parties if you have the time to. At times the social scene just seems to be very repetitive.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: People at BYU are extremely supportive and positive when it comes to sports. One of the best things about sports at BYU is the sportsmanship of the fans. They are not only supportive of BYU, but never seem to be negative about the opposing school. It is a fun environment for me to be in when I have the opportunity to.

Local Area: Not a ton of cultural variety, but there are a lot of options. My favorite part is that we are so close to the mountains.

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.
