5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, this was not my first choice of schools to attend. Things changed just before fall semester was to start and reluctantly had no other choice but to attend BYU or not go to school at all. The cost was a big factor in this decision. I must say that I have been pleasantly surprised. I love the school, love the people and love the atmosphere. I think it was the best thing that could have happened for me.

Off-Campus Dining: My favorite place is Zuppas! The food is fresh and healthy. Wish I could eat there for every meal!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have my own apartment and usually cook for myself. I have noticed there are many options for students though. Occasionally I enjoy breakfast at the student center.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I think it's similar to most anywhere you go. Meaning there are some who are exceptionally good looking and some who are very homely. However, I do feel there are more attractive people at my school. I think it has more to do with the type of people they are. They are clean, well dressed and well mannered. The religious influence plays a big part in this area.

Local Area: There are lots of things to do in the area! Hiking, snow skiing, water skiing, mountain biking, bowling....and list goes on and on. If you just get out the possibilities are endless.

Weather: It has been a very cold winter. Coming from the south it has been a nice change of scenery. So far it has not been a negative factor in my experience. If anything it has enhanced it.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am only in my second semester so my knowledge is limited regarding my major. To this point I have been very impressed with my classes. Professors are excellent, curriculum seems challenging but good, facilities are excellent and the workload is about what I would expect from a great college.

5 College Freshman

Academics: See previous comments. I think I have covered most of these already.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I'm pretty sure there are drugs used by some of the students. I would be foolish to think otherwise. But it's not something you see in the open. I have not witnessed use at anytime and have never felt pressure to participate.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I think most of the students who attend BYU have school spirit. We take pride in our school and love to support our teams.

5 College Freshman

Parking: My apartment is right across the street from the campus. I mostly walk to all my classes. Be careful not to park in someone else's designated spot though - the fine is $200!

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The library is awesome! Students love to hang out there. It's a great place to meet new people. The atmosphere is quiet, but not boring. If you stay until closing they have a tradition of blaring the most obnoxious music!

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The school is well maintained and beautiful. The social life is exceptional. It's easy to make new friends because most of the students have high moral and academic standards. I love the professors. They are personable and funny and make learning interesting and fun.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I thoroughly enjoy going to BYU. It is a fantastic university with much diversity in its students and teachers. By being involved in the community, I have been able to learn so much about the world around me just from the people I have met. Because I go to a religious university, education is coupled with spirituality and has facilitated my learning greatly.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It's so nice to live off campus. It's really easy to find good housing and is relatively cheap.

1 College Student

Diversity: There is pretty much no diversity here. Pretty much everyone is white middle class.

Administration: The strictness of the campus honor code helps students to keep them from getting into bad things (i.e. drinking, drugs, etc.)

4 College Student

Campus Housing: I love my apartment and have loved living in campus housing. My apartment has a lot of space and gives all of us roommates our personal bubble. People in my apartment complex don't really come out of their apartments a ton because they are so nice, so the socialization aspect is not as good, but I still love being here.

3 College Student

Scholarships: Because there are so many students here, it's hard to get a scholarship, but the application process is easy.

3 College Student

Technology: The internet is super slow, but you can almost always find access to a computer and a printer on campus. It's nice to have your own computer because you can take it to class with you and you also don't have to worry about finding a computer on campus if you're in a hurry to get something done. Plus you can have it at home so you can use it whenever you'd like.

3 College Student

Local Area: There's stuff to do off campus but we often end up doing the same things over and over again.

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: Everyone is super friendly here. Strangers will talk to you like they've known you your whole life and it's nice. However, people can often be judgmental and fake. Sometimes it feels like everything is a competition.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: There are plenty of places on campus for students to study and get together to hang out. There is a huge gym that anyone can work out in and there are tons of facilities for staying healthy. The library is huge and super helpful- easy to get lost in though.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: Teachers are amazing here. They really care about each individual student. They try to focus more on students learning the information and not just getting an A, but still make getting an A achievable. We also have a really good Honors Program that some people participate in to challenge themselves. I love the wholesome atmosphere here and how positive people are.

4 College Student

Party Scene: Everyone has good clean fun. We do party, but it's not the kind of partying most college students would do. We go bowling, play board games and watch movies instead of get drunk and do drugs, etc.

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.
