I graduated from BYU in 1996. I had a great experience there with several learning opportunities, a good social life, and great housing facilities. The more good things you look for, you can find there. I was able to go on two separate abroad programs, amazing professors that took the time for every student that needed something, and a lot of variety for majors. Although I had a great social life with many friends, I wish that there was more ethnic variety. I love learning about different backgrounds first hand. I am very happy that I went to BYU.

Brigham Young University is a great college to go to. The professors I've worked with, both in my major (Neuroscience) and out of it, have been easy to work with but expect high things from their students. I have learned a lot from the great people here.

My overall experience is a positive yet difficult experience. This university really stretches you to your limits knowing that we can accomplish great tasks if we will give it our all. I believe that from what I learn in this university I will be able to make a difference for good in this world.
