4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a cafeteria area inside one of the central buildings that offers a variety of food options ranging from fast food to healthier foods such as subway. There is also a dining center for students that have a meal plan which offers all you can eat for up to three times a day. Also around campus are stores that serve as mini grocery stores and provide fresh burgers and ice cream at your convenience. I would say that the best place to eat on campus is the Chick-fil-A in the cafeteria area. They have the best fries ever.

Drug Safety: There are no drugs or alcohol at BYU. It is against the Honor Code that you sign upon being accepted to the college. Because of the Honor Code there is no drug or alcohol paraphernalia on campus or in campus housing.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is little to no drug use and alcohol use because it is against the honor code to consume these products.

1 College Senior

Administration: From everything to the incredible rescrictive dress code to the curfew, the campus strictness here boarders on unbearable. Even though it is a religious instituion, I feel that sometimes the students are treated as children instead of adults. I think that there is far too much focus on the "letter" of the rules/honor code than the spirit of it. The diciplinary actions here seem to be very subjective and unjustly harsh. I have heard of students getting suspended and even expelled for things like going on a camping trip with the opposite sex (when boys slept in one tent and girls spent in another, seperate tent).

Diversity: The majority of students on campus are of the same religion (LDS) since this is a religious institution. There are, however, a rare few who attend that are not of the LDS faith. Also, the majority of students on campus are caucausian.

Parking: Generally parking is a nightmare near the south and west side of campus! If you don't mind walking a little further you can always park in the Lavell Edwards parking area (there's always spaces open there)

Campus Quality: Campus life is awesome at BYU! Everyone is so friendly and inviting that's it's very easy to make friends fast!

Campus Quality: Our libraries is one of the best libraries I've ever been to! Everything is very well taken care of and clean. There are tons of resources available for students to learn!

Majors: Haven't had one but I'd like to get one and I'm not too concerned with finding one.

4 College Junior

Majors: I like the major I've chosen. If I were to do it over I might have declared my major later in my academic career and explored a more wide variety of classes and majors to see what I might be interested in.
I'd like to work in marketing or advertising someday with Nike or a sports company but it's a very competitive place to work for.

5 College Junior

Majors: BYU provides great opportunities for students to do well and learn about their program and become involved in their program. I love mine because I can work closely with the professors and become involved in activities on campus.

3 College Senior

Weather: Provo can get pretty cold in the winter and pretty hot in the summer. Spring and Fall are fairly short. But some people dig that kind of weather

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus is extremely well lit and well monitored through security cameras. It has it's own police and there is a system of emergency telephones all over campus. They're blue.

Parking: Student parking is pretty limited, but most of the housing is close enough to walk, and that's even better.

3 College Junior

Weather: If you like cold and winter, this is the campus for you. A lot of the students get excited for the snow. Many love to ski up in the mountains and are offered great discounts to do so.

Campus Quality: The facilities at BYU are a bargain for what you pay. Many of the facilities were paid with subsidies from the LDS church for many years. So, they are really fantastic.

Academics: BYU is known as the Harvard of the west. It is a place where every student is challenged to do their very best. And there is plenty of help to get the best work possible from you.

Campus Food: There are some good places to eat spread around campus. But you do get tired of eating at the same places. The nicer places are pricey. I think they are meant for Campus Administration,

They do have some fast food restaurants. I just wish they would change their menu. But fast good places don't do that.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The BYU campus has to be the most beautiful campus in the country. I love how the buildings are close enough to walk to between classes.

There is so much to do and be a part of at BYU. All are wholesome activities that include everyone that wants to be a part of the activity. The students are very friendly here and know how to have good clean fun.

It is a real honor to come to BYU. It is a very spiritual school also, with weekly devotionals centered around gospel topics.

Diversity: There is hardly any diversity, but that is why people come to BYU is to be with other LDS people.

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: We agree to live by an honor code to attend BYU. Some people do not live by this, but it is a requirement to attend the university.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining can be a lot of fun when you're a BYU student. Provo and Orem cities offer a lot of dining diversity--from the affordable Pizza Pie Cafe (which is also a buffet) to The Banana Leaf, a Singaporean restaurant who's service and atmosphere is as amazing as the food they offer. For the fast food lover, you can find almost any national fast food chain restaurant in Provo alone. There are also many pizza chains that offer delivery (Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Dominos) as well as city-bound (I recommend Black Jack Pizza; they only serve carry-out and delivery--carry-out can include a walk-in--but they have amazing deals and their pizza tastes amazing!). You are almost guaranteed to find any type of food you want--Brazilian, American, Chinese, Japanese, Peruvian, Italian, Thai...all those types of restaurants can be found here! (And I'm sure I missed listing a few). There are also restaurants that specialize in serving a certain food, such as crepes (The Crepe Co.), frozen yogurt (Farr's), and hotdogs (Jdawgs). The only minor setback to enjoying all these great restaurants is that you'd need a car to travel to most of these places. They're not far away when you're driving, but sometimes biking and especially walking can turn out to be a longer trip than you planned for. Overall, I love the off-campus dining here, but if you don't have a car, try to go with a friend who does or take the bus (or bike, if the place is close enough).

Health & Safety: BYU is a safe campus, but there is always a risk, especially when people become too comfortable. I have never felt unsafe or threatened here, but it is always a good idea to lock your doors and to watch your belongings because there are some people who steal things such as textbooks or laptops. Most theft comes when students are careless about where they leave their belongings. As far as safety when walking alone or late at night, there are little blue phones on lampposts around campus, especially on the outskirts and on trails, that are there for emergencies. All you have to do is push a button and it connects right to BYU police whether there is an emergency situation or whether you just want someone to walk you home late at night. I think that BYU has done a very good job of setting up security measures to protect students.

Academics: I am a Chemical Engineering major and my experience thus far has been amazing. At BYU, Chemical Engineering majors start taking classes for the major freshman year. The faculty is wonderful and they are always more than willing to help. The Engineering department is in the Clyde building on campus, and in that building there is a large study area where there are always people studying for different classes in the major. I have found that it is a great place to go to meet other students in the major and a good place to learn from upperclassmen about the major and the classes I have yet to take. The college is very good about offering different scholarships and preparing students for internships. I have a mentorship this fall where I will be mentored by a professor while doing research in his lab. The faculty here are great resources and they help a lot when it comes to references and getting internships.

Weather: Utah weather is very bipolar. One day it is 20 degrees and snowing and the next is sunny and too hot.

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.
