5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school offers a wide variety of programs and activities to help students and alumni to find employment.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a great social openness among campus housing units. The social life is very open and stress free.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone on campus loves the sports teams and there is a high sense of school spirit and school pride.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Brigham Young University. It has a beautiful campus filled with faculty that is freindly. The students are very friendly and open with one another.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Teachers are very involved with the students. Most of my classes are small, and even in the ones that have had about 20 students at the largest my teachers have known my name and have taken a personal interest in my academic success. I think they could be a little bit more proactive in letting students know about research and writing opportunities to supplement classroom education, though.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU is very well-connected as far as internship and employment opportunities go. It is a large university with a lot of connections, and the new online BYU Bridge program is a great resource for filtering options based on major and activities, as well as listing recommended jobs with a percentage indicating the quality of a match based on your resume and academic record. Great resources. On-campus employment is also good, with many opportunities that look great on a resume. They seem like they really try to employ as many students as they can, and give worthwhile opportunities for growth and career preparation.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have loved my time here.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: All my friends got jobs right out of school.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: BYU is very safe. In general it is safe because of the culture, but also because of preventative measures taken by the university. BYU police has a SafeWalk program where you can call a security guard to walk you home, and they have emergency call buttons all around campus and on the most sketchy walks to off-campus housing. Not very safe if you have a bike that you don't want stolen or broken, though. I think it has gotten better in recent years. BYU Police seem to be pretty good, but I don't know of much else that they do. There are certain housing complexes where I would never live though, just because most of the off-campus crime (usually sexual assault) has happened there (pretty much anything along the Provo River trail area - like the Branbury apartments).

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: All the buildings are old and overpriced.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I felt like numbers were a big part of my acceptance.

5 College Senior

Athletics: The students here bleed blue, they are born and raised as cougar fans. There is always enthusiasm for the sports here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This has been a great college experience - it has offered me an insane amount of options compared to other universities, as far as major selection, teacher-student ratio and involvement, clubs, fine arts, community events, service and volunteer opportunities, and research and work experience. Regular on-campus events include weekly speeches from renowned leaders from all religions, institutions, causes, fields, and industries. This is THE place to be for anyone who wants an academically rigorous, culturally diverse experience (in spite of it being attended mostly by white kids) and the local and international connections that a large university has to offer, with the close-knit feeling of a small campus. It will prepare you well for the outside world if you take advantage of all of the resources it has to offer!

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics and school spirit are a huge part of campus life. Alumni remain involved in college sports at my university, sometimes even more than the current students themselves! For many people, it is a way to reconnect with the university. Sports are very well-attended by current students and alumni and their families.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't seen any problems with safety, and nobody I know has been a victim. I will occasionally hear about an incident, or receive an email about an offender, and those worry me. I feel safe walking home unless it's dark, and I definitely feel safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved and admired most of my professors. I did not feel taken care of in my Chemistry 105 class...but that's the exception. My biggest class was 600, and my smallest now is about 20 people. I think they are appropriate sizes for the type of class.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know many of the resources available. I just have not had time to participate in them.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live off-campus, and never lived in the dorms because they filled up too quickly.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I really don't see sororities and fraternities. I'm almost positive they don't exist. We have lots of awesome clubs, however.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Team performance and student involvement is through the roof. As for facilities, they aren't bad either. I use the swimming pool, dance studio, weight room and gym regularly. They're exactly what I need even if they're not amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have learned high-level thinking in topics I never thought about before, and my classes are so interesting that I often look forward to going. Outside of the classroom, the workload is often overbearing, but I'm learning that I'm capable of more than I thought I was.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I would walk around in the middle of the night all alone and feel totally fine and I'm a girl. I mean if you were worried you can even get a police officer to walk you home if you wanted if it was late enough, but BYU is about the safest place you can get.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's the best. Enough said.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They have recruiting fairs all the time, an online search engine, and lots of alumni connecting opportunities. Basically anyone gets a job after graduation. You can't get a better value for your degree than at BYU.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On campus is for freshman girls and pre-mis. If you are one of these two groups you'll love it. The rooms are small but the atmosphere is good and you are super close to campus. The meal plans are a struggle because you can never eat all of the food that it gives you.

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.
