Health & Safety: Because of the honor code and high standards of students, campus is generally very safe. Of course walking alone at night is not the safest, but there are options you can take advantage of such as a police escort if you are seriously worried. Campus police are usually near by and very accessible, and campus crime is low.

Overall Experience: My professors have been very good. They are passionate about what they teach and have a real expertise in their areas of study. The courses I have taken, even those I was not initially interested in turned out to be very rewarding. Class sized vary a lot. Many General Education classes have hundreds of students, but more major specific classes are much smaller.

Campus Housing: My experience with campus housing has been very positive. I lived in Heritage Halls which are so nice and new! I got along well with my roommates, and I liked being able to cook my own food. Heritage Halls have a less social atmosphere than Helaman Halls.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love attending Brigham Young University. It has such a friendly, uplifting atmosphere and campus is beautiful. I was challenged by my classes but enjoyed them all. My professors were kind and passionate about what they taught. Be ready to work hard, make friends, and grow spiritually and intellectually.

Health & Safety: Plenty of police. The Honor Code is enforced very strictly and this keeps incident rates down.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the school. I will not claim that it is the best school in the world, however I believe there is a majority group on campus that is converted to the idea that they are the best, and are not well-aware of the achievements of other colleges.

A very warm and friendly environment. However, despite working with the administrative staff is a pleasure, it can be frustrating that they frequently make mistakes, and forget to do what they said they would.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It depends on what you want to do. There's hype.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great. But I am an international student who found myself arriving late, and unable to find accommodation despite guarantees from the college that there would be something available. The help they had to offer in their offices was very limited, there are two. But both offices asked me to just search the internet for a place to live.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our school has a special word for Greek life: Apostacy.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: To be honest I am brand new here so I am still getting into the sports scene. I do know that there is a huge amount of enthusiasm state-wide for our college football team, the Cougars.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm brand new to the school so I am still getting used to it. So far it has been a pleasure.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There are some generals that have a huge grading curve because of how difficult they are for all students. On the other hand, there are some classes I've had that i was super interested in because of the application and enthusiasm included by the professor and/or TA.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: In every program I've considered joining, I've heard that finding a job/internship is relatively easy because of the quality of education offered and the help given by the program to find opportunities after graduation.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: On campus is quite safe, there are security officers that patrol campus. Any reports that I've heard or read about are off-campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life but there is a great social atmosphere with great student involvement, volunteer opportunities, and student activities.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I enjoy the things that make BYU unique, with the high standards and expectations. The Honor Code that is held in high regard is why I chose to attend and love to return after breaks.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletics at BYU works to involve all the students and provides many opportunities for a student to learn and grow in athletics. Fan support and school spirit is very encouraged and made easier through apparel give-aways.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: As a male, I feel safe around campus, but there are times where I worry for my friends who are female. There have been reports of women being groped, or men peeping into women's apartments at night, but these are all off campus. On campus there are call boxes everywhere, and I have not heard of things happening on campus. Everything that I know of has occurred off campus, but in town.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: There are a good amount of courses offered, but I do not feel like they have enough classes of each course. There are a lot of students here, and they all have to take the same GEs yet, a lot of them do not get in to the GEs they want because there are not enough of each course. For a student who needs to work and study, it can be hard to create a class schedule that allows you to have the hours needed to work.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: There are a good amount of internships that are offered at BYU, and a lot of jobs look at BYU students with a high standard because of the honor code we follow.

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.
