5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Very Pleasant – Provo is an extremely carefree and happy city. All businesses cater towards students and make sure we're pleased.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Nice Apartments Are Expensive! Most apartments are old and fading. If you want a newly renovated apartment you have to pay a lot more then the usual price for off-campus apartments. Most are close to campus or have a bus system to get you on campus quickly. There are many to chose one and no one goes without.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Great Environment – BYU is full of students who love to learn and want to succeed, but even more so they want to serve each other. Everyone at this school is friendly and helpful, it is a great environment for learning and growing.

4 College Junior

Parking: BYU is great for parking because you don't need to purchase a permit, just register your license online. There's always places to park, but they're far away. The great part is, it's free!

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: I love BYU! There's a fabulous library and tons of places to study and hang out around campus. The sports facilities are great and there's almost always some sort of event going on that's hosted by campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Social Life Without the Trouble – As you know, BYU is notorious for no sex, no drugs, no alcohol. Even though a lot of non-LDS students would be totally turned off at this idea, there are a lot of fun things to do on and off campus. BYU really puts forth effort to entertain the student body with concerts in Brigham Square and different dances.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Science at It's Best – If you take the time and effort and get to know the staff in the Science Dept., it really makes a difference. The staff is very willing to help you learn what you need to do.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: May Seem Dull at First, but Give It a Chance – There's not much partying to be done in Provo, Utah, but head up to Salt Lake, and you're good to go. There's little fun things to do around BYU like bowling, movies, malls, live music, and jumping gyms.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: BYU is the most well-rounded school I have ever heard about or attended. Learning and progressing is a vital mission of the school, whilst religion and social events are actually required. An atmosphere of complete balance in the progression of every individual defines the quality of Brigham Young University and the life I have experienced there.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: As a female student at BYU, I have never felt threatened or unsafe on, or anywhere near the campus. Police are constantly on patrol around dorm parking lots and many ride bikes around campus. When there is something questionable going on, a program is used to alert students via text and email.

4 College Senior

Majors: Open to Everyone – The Chemistry department is open to anyone who wants to be a chemistry major. There are no program entrance requirements, but the first several classes are very difficult-not on purpose, but just that's how chemistry classes need to be.

4 College Senior

Academics: Knowledgeable and Friendly – Most of the professors at Brigham Young University are great. Sure, you can find the occasional one you don't like, but by and large the faculty is warm and willing to help. The quality of the education is amazing

4 College Senior

Local Area: Good People at Their Best – Provo isn't the largest city, but it is a very friendly and safe area. The people are almost always kind and willing to help and while there isn't always a great number of things to do, there is a safe environment to make up your own fun.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Mechanical Engineering – Always fun and entertaining. There is always someone willing to help you. If the work gets tough, it's easy to ask for help. Everything is convenient. Usually lots of internship opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Mechanical Engineering – My major is tons of fun with hands on projects and great classes. The workload isn't bad at all. There are also plenty of opportunities for internships.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Beautiful and Safe – The atmosphere is wonderful! I have never seen anywhere so maintained and gorgeous. It is the perfect setting for a high school students with many places to hang out in and around campus. I have also never seen a more safe place. Not being from this area, I actually feel safe walking on the sidewalks. The University Mall is right down the road and the home football games are always CRAZY! Students are respected and, likewise,the community expects the same respect.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Excited to Be a Part of Neuroscience – I am going to be a surgeon and my department turns out the most and the best. I am really glad that I am here and headed into this field.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Top Professors – BYU has always been a leader in research and instruction in the medical field, there is always some project in the news that is starting a new way to help people.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: World's Greatest Snow – Skiing in Utah is phenomenal, BYU is only 20 minutes away from Sundance Ski Resort, so after a day of classes and work, I hit the slopes to enjoy the greatest snow on earth. Hiking in the summer is incredible too, we are right next to the tallest mountain in Utah, hiking it is a favorite of students and locals alike.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Lots of outdoor activities to do. Authentic ethnic foods in downtown Provo. Go Disco Skating at the classic skate deck, or go to the tumble gym! Provo and Rock canyons offer lots of adventure, right down the road. Or BYU itself has plenty to do.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Tough Stuff – BYU is known for its great academics and quality. Some programs are difficult to get into because they demand the best students and the best work. The work here challenges students to be the best they can be and to progress. I have only been a student for one semester and have not selected a major but I have heard very good things about most of the programs.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Picture Perfect – There is never a short supply of things to do in Provo. The majestic mountains and landscape provide an endless amount of outdoor activities for students. The University also offers many free activities and opportunities for students. The campus is never a dull place and has a certain buzz in the atmosphere. No matter what your budget there is always something to keep you entertained.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The Y – Out of the colleges I've seen, BYU has a special ability to make its students feel at home despite its large campus. The local people are very kind to students and there are plenty of activities to keep students busy. It is a nice place for outdoor people; there are beautiful hiking, biking, and whitewater rafting centers within reasonable distance. On campus there are many clubs and activities including dancing, ballroom dancing, stand up comedy, and occasional outdoor movies during the warmer seasons. Oh, and the football stadium is right there too...the basketball team is pretty nice too. It's fun.

4 College Junior

Majors: Excellent Career Services – The staff here are really good at helping every student that wants to find an internship. I did an on-campus internship with a local non-profit and an unpaid internship with a local city. As an undergrad it is hard to find a paying internship in local government but there are plenty for graduate students.

4 College Junior

Academics: Overall Great Professors – I have only had a few professors that I didn't like but even they were always willing to meet with students and to help us out. The professors here really challenge me and even though that means spending lots of time on my homework, I love it.

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.
