4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's a give and take between money and quality.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are smart, hardworking, and have a special spirit about them which makes this university unique.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The accounting school is one of the top in the nation.
The film school is one of the top in the state of Utah.

2 College Freshman

Parking: The parking lots are simply too small.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I love the strictness at BYU because it provides a safe community.

3 College Student

Party Scene: The school doesn't have many "parties" as in drinking and clubs because it has an honor code that students must keep to in order to sty enrolled which includes not drinking. But there are great non alcoholic parties and places to dance and have fun.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places for dining off campus, and the cost ranges from low to high. There is a great variety of restaurants in a ten mile radius, so you never have to travel far to have something different or new.

5 College Student

Local Area: There are many places to see both on and off campus. There are museums, large fields for ball games, shopping centers and malls, and many events going on all year ling. There are many cultural activities ranging from dance and music performances to art shows, and cultural events in town and in towns nearby. The general attitude towards students is a friendly attitude.

5 College Student

Guys & Girls: Everyone adheres to the honor code, making the dress code more enforced. Many people make up for the dress code by finding their own style to go with their personality. There are many clubs and activities to join for almost anything you can think of. The social life is upbeat and fun.

4 College Student

Campus Food: Dining halls are available, but are usually full around lunchtime. The menus stay the same most of the time, but there are other restaurants to choose from in the food court area. The value of the meals if like any other place, you get what you pay for.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: The campus police are always available and easy to find. The campus is well light at night making it safer to walk alone. Emergency phones are all over campus, making it easy to get assistance if you ever don't feel safe. Police are willing to walk you to your car or from your car to the building by just a phone call. I feel extremely safe.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Food is ok, and the flex dollars work conveniently. Dorm food is not bad.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. It's well lit and there are emergency phones.

5 College Junior

Technology: It's best to have your own laptop and at least one computer between you and your roommate. Network reliability is good, speed good. You can always get tech support, and it provides a lot of employment for students as well.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There is a curfew at the dorms, and girls and guys are not allowed in each other's apartments. Most stay in the dorms only one year. Since BYU is the stone cold sober champion, night life consists of partying without alcohol, and ends earlier than most universities.

4 College Junior

Majors: Criteria for admission into the art program are grades and a portfolio. Acceptance is maybe 50 per cent. I was encouraged to apply early, and I'm glad I did, because it got me accepted sooner, and I had more talent than I thought I did.

5 College Junior

Majors: I have worked at the very nice art museum on campus. Although the pay is very low for my level of responsibilities, the experience is fantastic. I hope to find an internship at a larger art museum as well.

3 College Junior

Transportation: You basically walk to and from school, but there are many housing options close enough to the campus. There is a new rail system that stops at the city, but not the campus. People take shuttles to the airport, or buses. Buses travel between cities.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The foreign presence in this town give a few more dining options for ethnic food, but not a ton.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Tons of school spirit,m among students and community members. Great football and basketball teams. Men's and women's volleyball are huge here, with national championships the last several years.

5 College Junior

Academics: Academic standards are rigorous, more difficult than many universities that my peers attend. My major, art education, requires acceptance into the program. The workload is huge, and we are expected to produce a high level of academic achievement. We do research and make presentations to our peers. We go into the public schools as part of my major, and teach art. I also teach art to children as part of my job at the Museum of Art.

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.
