3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Although it was fairly easy to find housing, people are crowded into housing. We had 6 ladies sharing 1 bathroom. Six people to an apartment was uncomfortable, loud, messy and it was hard to study there.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: Since this is a religious school with strict policies, there really is none of the parties and nightlife found at other schools. Not everybody wants this.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The only thing I remember is that the bus system was available, but that was all. It was hard to get around other than that.

4 College Junior

Administration: It's nice to have standards and not have excess partying of others ruin your studies.

3 College Junior

Technology: I am answering these questions based on my attendance at this university years earlier.

3 College Junior

Academics: It's pretty nice to be able to have this program at our school. They are allowing me to finish my degree via the internet, which I believe is nice that they work with their students to accomplish their goals.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football seems to be very important here.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Winters are hard to go through and make it difficult to want to leave your apartment to go to class. Spring/Summer/Fall is beautiful though.

Transportation: I usually catch a ride to school in someone's car but a bike, skateboard, or walking would get me there in a fairly decent amount of time. I don't think there's a need for campus transportation.

Off-Campus Dining: Cost of food isn't to bad. I'm originally from Hawaii where prices are way higher than they are in Provo, Utah. Most things are convenient.

Drug Safety: Very religious school so less problems with alcohol and peer pressure in comparison to secular schools. Policy enforcement is strict and respected.

Administration: BYU requires its students to live by an Honor Code where they promise to not do any drugs or alcohol, have sex outside of marriage, and dress modestly among other policies. Offenders of the more important aspects of the Honor Code have disciplinary action taken against them and may even be kicked out.

Diversity: The majority of students are Mormons, and there is a very high percentage of white people, although there are still non-Mormons and people from different countries and cultures.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: BYU has limited parking spaces for student parking, but there are lots of bike racks on campus, and many apartments are close enough for people to walk to campus. BYU also has a bus called The Ryde that runs three times an hour and only costs $100/semester. The public transportation also provides discounted bus passes for students.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Provo is a very Mormon place, and so it can be a little bit boring. Although there is a lot of diversity and lots of different cultures, there aren't very many non-Mormons here.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The night life on campus is basically non-existent (except possibly in the freshman housing). But they have club night once a week, and people are always doing fun things like game nights, movie nights, or going dancing. There is no/very little bar scene because it is against BYU's Honor Code.

Academics: There are classes for every class imaginable from stage make up to world dance. The professors are great and really know their stuff, although a lot of the time there is a large work load.

Technology: You can print on campus for 7 cents a page for black and white and 14 cents a page colored. There are printers in every building, and you use your student ID card to print.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Because of BYU's honor code that all students agree to live by, virtually no one drinks or does drugs. It would be shocking if someone did.

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus and when walking to and from campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Living in the trees area allows one to walk to the campus in under 15 minutes.

4 College Freshman

Technology: I have my own laptop at college, but there are computer labs everywhere on campus readily available for use. The library is great for those wanting to work and may even have laptops, but just left them at home. The wireless is pretty great, just not as good when you go down to basements for classes.

Campus Housing: I live in the freshman dorms at Helaman Halls. I LOVE the social atmosphere, and the wards are super fun. It's great as far as location to campus, and the fact that we're almost forced to be social and outgoing really helped out my freshman year, and from that I've made copious amounts of friendships; ones that I think will last a lifetime. They keep the dorms very clean, and the size may be a little small, but it's a great started freshman dorm.

Off-Campus Dining: Lot's of places that are close enough to walk from campus, great choices, and lots of variety.

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.
