Academics: I feel like I learn a lot in my classes as long as I apply myself. Professors are often researching and performing studies so I don't feel behind the times.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I love my major. It is all about being healthy as an individual and having that kind of lifestyle. Everyone in Exercise and Wellness seems to be friendly, and professors care about us and our lives.

Campus Quality: I love the BYU fan culture, it's super fun. I also like lawns on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: I love that there is the religious connection. So many people here are LDS/Mormon, so we all connect super well.

5 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Most people here are very friendly, and very focused not only on school but on progressing as an individual. I also like the focus on spirituality/religiosity.

Campus Quality: Live the campus! New buildings and renovations are constantly being built. It's so nice

4 College Student

Campus Quality: Again, because it's a private religious school there isn't much partying, but more wholesome activities among students. It's fun to get to know everyone without them all being drunk.

Campus Housing: Living on campus in Heritage Halls has been an excellent experience. The buildings themselves are brand new and thus very clean, nice, updated, etc. I absolutely adore all the students there. Everyone is so kind and willing to help fellow students. There is a strong comrodere and fantastic community. While it is quite expensive to live here, it's worth it! I love having my own kitchen and large living room and dining room to spend time with friends and roommates.

Diversity: Because BYU is a private religious school, there is a great lack of diversity regarding religion, sexual orientation and general beliefs. BYU does, however, make an effort to vary race and ethnicity and provide an accepting atmosphere in that regard.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Campus is well kept. As such, it's easy to want to be outside when the weather is good. The atmosphere is good and welcoming. It's easy to meet new people in the library and the Wilk because they are almost central points that most people go through or to.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Because this school is run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it has a great and welcoming atmosphere. Many classes begin with a prayer and gospel topics are introduced into most classes. In addition, the academics are top-notch. It's easy to tell how invested they teachers are in our learning.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: There is wide variety of food on campus. Since they got Chic-fil-a, things have greatly improved too. I don't eat on campus often, but I'm not disappointed when I do.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletics are great! There are discounted ticket options for students so it's easy to support our teams. School spirit is readily available and athletic facilities are maintained well.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Campus itself is pretty safe. However, people are too trusting and can be easy targets by running or walking alone late at night.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: BYU uses the honor code system so the responsibility lies within the students to live an honorable life. Since students must sign the Honor Code in order to attend the university, they are expected to maintain the principles outlined on it. If they don't, there are consequences that require school involvement.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: It's readily available. The only downside is that because there is such a high demand for BYU-approved housing, landlords are able to charge higher prices. Some of these landlords are very good at keeping the apartments in good shape, but others are very hard to reach and seem reluctant to help fix things.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: It's important to do it ahead of time. There is one general scholarship application that students fill out and the eligibility is determined for all scholarships.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Although it may feel like there is nothing to do sometimes, the city is great. There are tons of little shops that are fun to explore and Provo has a great music scene so there are a lot of bands that are usually performing on the weekends.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Although most classes are difficult, they are reasonable. The academics are great and registrations is pretty easy. Since I enjoy the business classes, my favorite places to study are in the Tanner building. This is not only a quiet place, but it's also a great place to meet new people who are studying the same thing.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: My major doesn't really provide many opportunities to get help after college. Although they may be there, they don't advertise well. Most of the events are announced a couple of days before they occur and they tend to be at inconvenient times. The classes are pretty easy so some teachers feel the need to provide unnecessary assignments to make their classes seem harder. A lot of the classes are also very repetitive.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The cost is very comparable to off-campus housing. Although it's not as nice, the social atmosphere is great because everyone is so close together. It's also pretty easy to find housing just as long as you meet the deadlines and don't procrastinate.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: I find that it is cheaper to bring food from home rather than buy everyday.

2 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There isn't much ethnic, economic, political, religious, or sexual orientation diversity that I have seen.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I received a scholarship from the department every year I applied for one (2 years applying.)

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: The most interesting places are overpriced (Mostly basing this off of an experience at The Tortilla Bar).

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.
