4 College Student

Majors: Difficulties were just being an freshman with little on my resume to qualify myself for admission.

The important criteria were relating to diversity and display of a good work ethic.

all my tips would involve joining different clubs and learning diff languages to make you diverse and unique on paper.

2 College Student

Party Scene: You have got to really look for good nightlife parties, no restaurants except for ihop are open.

4 College Student

Local Area: good place to live, cheap and good for college life, terrible drivers, everyone drives like they're gonna die if they don't put a dent in the next car.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I've found a few fantastic restaurants, Guru's is my favorite, and a couple bad Chinese ones but there's always a good option in fifteen minutes drive.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing I hear is better, I've never lived in the dorms but you can't beat being close to campus and close to the store.

4 College Student

Administration: Lots of focus on the honor code, which is a great environment. Terrible parking, almost always get a ticket if you park in the wrong spot.

4 College Student

Weather: Sunny when I'm in class and sunset when I get off work, good weather not to cold and never to snowed in.

4 College Student

Diversity: Lots of cultural diversity, people from other nationalities etc. For values and political orientations the mix is a little homogeneous.

3 College Student

Athletics: It's popular for many students, but for the group I hang out with we only hear about the sports happening we never go to see the games

4 College Student

Scholarships: It's important to talk and ask questions so people that have done it before can let you know about good tips, seeing as they've gone through the same process. Make sure to talk to the counselors on campus because they know all the "ins and outs" of applications etc..

4 College Senior

Majors: I love my major. I have learned a lot from many different professors.

5 College Senior

Majors: I have loved my internship. School very much encourages them and helps with contact information.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: There are some good opportunities.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Its pretty good. Especially affordable.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Everything in Provo closes extremely early, so shopping isn't always a good option. There's not much to do specifically in Provo, but there are lots of things relatively close by.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Sometimes there are TONS of things happening, and sometimes nothing is happening. BYU sponsored activities are usually fun.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I don't often use public transportation myself, but I don't hear complaints from others.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There is always financial aid if you're looking for it.

4 College Freshman

Weather: As with anywhere, you have to get used to the weather. I love it here.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There will always be people who break the rules, but it is not very prevalent or obvious at BYU.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel very safe on campus. I follow the rules. Campus police are great about everything (except parking).

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am an English major. I love the faculty and the curriculum and the classes offered. The workload is very easy to manage if you keep up with it. The advisement staff is really good about helping you find internships and job opportunities.

5 College Freshman

Administration: There is nothing about BYU's rules and Honor Code that is meant to impede students. (Except maybe parking rules). I love being here because most people readily accept the rules and live by them, and I don't have to worry about being affected by those who don't.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The new Heritage dorms are wonderful! I love it!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: BYU is probably one of the most scrict campuses. But that's what people expect when going to BYU, it also creates a competitive antmosphere

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.
