5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I walk home alone at 10:30 at night and I feel safe. It's well lit

5 College Freshman

Technology: There are a vast amount of computer labs on campus and printing is very accessible. The internet is in all buildings and has been very reliable. Many students do use their own personal computers more for convenience of location; to be where they want to be instead of having to be in a computer lab or library.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Buses pass by in many locations and it allows students to travel for long distances if desired.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The Honor Code that all students have to sign when accepting admittance to BYU expressly forbids any use of drugs or alcohol, so no one uses any, and if they do, there are VERY few. If anyone is caught using them, they risk suspension for breaking the Honor Code. It's really nice.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Many of the professors are very willing to work with you when you have questions in class. Some of the workloads are a bit much sometimes, but this is a very prestigious school, so that's to be expected. I also appreciate how easy it is to register for classes.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I can count the number of unlit walkways around campus on one hand. As a girl, and sometimes needing to walk home alone at night, I feel very safe. Lit walkways, police callboxes, and an escort program for when you do feel uncomfortable walking home at night, all create a sense of security.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of fun restaurants! Sammy's, the Malt Shop, Brick Oven, Pizza Pie Cafe, Panda Express, lots of incredibly delicious mexican food restaurants... and that's only in the very close vicinity. Get into the Salt Lake area and possibilities are endless for foodies.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Provo is a fun place to be. There are great movie theaters, salsa and country dancing clubs, restaurants and cafes, music scenes and concerts, and shopping around. The area is also very very safe. I know people who hardly ever remembered to lock their front door and were not worried. Honestly. Super low crime. Also, there are so many BYU students that most of the population surrounding BYU are students! And non-students either want to go to BYU or are alumni.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Ever since I got here, I've never even smelled a cigarette on campus. It's extremely anti-drug and anti-alcohol here. There's really strong peer pressure against doing anything like that. It's not perfect, there are incidents, but generally, this is a drug-free school.

Local Area: It seems like there's always tons of stuff happening on campus. but if you're looking for something off campus, there are plenty of things to do. Plus, if the BYU crowd isn't always to your liking, the University of Utah is really close by and Salt lake is only 45 minutes away. The people in Provo love BYU.

5 College Junior

Administration: Its a religious and private school so its very strict

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: They keep the grounds beautiful but they need better and more parking as well as more food selection and cheaper

4 College Freshman

Administration: Technically, BYU isn't very strict about any of the rules that we are required to follow - unless you are an athlete - but that's because it is supposed to be on your honor. And for the most part, I don't think we have any problems.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation around BYU is pretty good - they have buses that run about three times an hour, plus a shuttle that goes straight to and from certain housing areas at convenient times.

3 College Junior

Majors: If I could do it again I'd get higher grades to get into a more competitive major.

4 College Junior

Majors: My major had no application process getting in. It was very simple.

4 College Junior

Technology: Computers are good. There are PC's and Macs, in a lot of locations. There are some times when they can be scarce - During Tuesday Devotionals. But usually you can always find one.

5 College Junior

Athletics: There are tons of opportunities to participate in or watch sports on campus. There are many different physical activities classes offered each semester as well.

4 College Junior

Technology: There are plenty of computers on campus if you know where to go. There is a computer lab on most levels of the library and in various buildings across campus. Both black & white and color printing are the same price.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There is no Alcohol or drugs on campus. There are no strip clubs or anything like that either. Its a mormon community. There are clean parties with fun and clean games, etc.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There are good places to eat on campus that provide a wide variety of food. If you live off campus, there are plenty or restaurants near by. There is a lot of foreign food around as well.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: BYU is a religious school and the students that go there agree to live by an honor code. It is a very clean and respectful environment.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was straightforward and simple to apply for the BYU scholarships and in my Financial Aid account I got some loans to cover the rest of my expenses.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am in the Economics major and I love it. It is hard work, but rewording. There is always help available at the labs for when one blanks on a question or has trouble grasping something discussed in a lecture. After one is finished with the beginning courses, one is able to become a teaching assistant, research assistant, or find a decent off-campus job that looks well on a resume. Because of these opportunities and the quality of the teachers, it prepares one well for graduate, law or business schools. The professors are also great at helping one network and find the right people to get to the right places.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I usually feel very safe. It is a nice campus with enough people and security to feel comfortable. Most crimes are bike robberies, so lock yours up! The people are healthy because of the high standard of living. Although you may think it is Utah and super safe, never walk alone at night or early in the morning...chances are not worth taking.

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.
