3 College Senior

Diversity: If you are seeking a wide range in religious diversity, this is not the place to come. But if you are seeking a strong faith-filled community with people from diverse heritages, BYU is your school. I love the sense of unity that our faith brings to the students, but I feel that there is also a colorful palate of personality types here under that faith umbrella that keeps campus life interesting.

3 College Senior

Weather: Being in a desert-type climate, it is often very dry here. The winters can be a challenge with inversions and snow, but for the most part, we have fairly mild weather. Spring and Fall are beautiful here and the view can't be beat.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel that, in comparison to many other places, BYU campus is one of the safest around. It's not perfect, so we still have to be smart, but I rarely feel unsafe on campus and feel that campus police is always there to help when needed.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of affordable places to eat. There are many different options for different types of food, and the atmospheres are great!

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Because of the honor code we have, alcohol and drug use is non-existent on campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Easy to find housing in your price range. Lots of different options close to campus and very social.

3 College Junior

Transportation: I have never really used any of these transportation methods. I have my own car.

4 College Junior

Technology: There is really good wireless access almost all over campus. There are a couple of rooms in the basement of the JFSB where there used to be no internet, but nursing got it fixed this year!

4 College Junior

Weather: I love all of the seasons. Here in Utah, we get the whole experience. Snow, wind, sun, you name it. It's the best, and there is a huge variety.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There are a lot of different activities to do here in Provo. There are mountains super close for camping, hiking, snowboarding, and bonfires. There are also great restaurants and lots of shopping options. It is also super close to Salt Lake which have great malls and restaurants as well. Also, Utah Jazz games are a popular activity to attend.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I go to every home game there is. People are always camping out to get a good seat at football and basketball games. The environment is great, and we sure know how to get in people's heads as a student section.

5 College Junior

Academics: We have a great nursing building with simulation labs set up on one floor. We have mannequins that give birth, and can be programmed and controlled by a person at a computer. It is very helpful to practice tasks and situations on a mannequin before going to the hospital and doing it on a real patient. Workload is big, but it is definitely doable.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love nursing so much. The clinical experience is great. We have a lot of good hospitals around here to get experience from. Our teachers are wonderful! They are great nurses, but also great teachers and friends. My semester is really close. It's fun to go to classes with all of your friends.

3 College Junior

Majors: Nursing is super competitive at BYU. GPA and service hours are the main things that are considered. The process is pretty easy to understand, and the teachers are a lot of help.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Very easy to find good housing. Lots of options, lots of different price ranges! Super close to campus.

2 College Junior

Diversity: It's a Private religious school. So obviously you can expect it to be fairly low in diversity of ideas beliefs political views etc. You get what you signed up for I guess. It's been getting more ethnically diverse over the years thankfully which helps create a better environment.

4 College Junior

Academics: The workload is tough, but if you're willing to work hard you can learn a lot. There are a lot of useful tools and helps on campus you can utilize and most of it is free. I.E. Academic Counselors, Tutoring etc.

4 College Junior

Technology: There are lots of computer labs. Some of them offer the option of using a Mac or a PC which is really cool. The internet is fast, especially now that google Fiber is coming here soon, I'm sure it'll be even better. Sometimes the wifi is slow.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms and on-campus housing is extremely nice and spacious. They are almost all brand-new. Rates are relatively low, rent is over-all very low in Utah. I personally thing the dorms are too fancy for college life, so it's not my cup of tea. But I'm sure most students love it.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is very close and has very similar rules to the on campus housing. It is very cost effective and there is a great social environment

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are against the school honor code. If students are found consuming them, they can be expelled.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Everyone in the surrounding area supports the school and there are a lot of really fun activities for young, poor college students to participate in throughout the whole year.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Because this is a religious institution, the parties are wholesome. The music is still good, but this would never be considered a Party School. Drugs and alcohol are prohibited by the school. So, if you want good, clean parties, it's a great school. If you want crazy parties, choose a different school.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors and teaching assistants are amazing and will offer any help you need. They are very understanding and helpful. If you do poorly, its your own fault for not utilizing the resources they have available.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: The computers are very easy to access and there are usually computers open throughout campus. It is never really an issue.

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.
