3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek Life.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletics program gives students/alumni reason to be proud of being a BYU fan. They are talented and successful. The student involvement at games is fun and it is great to be a BYU Cougar.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I had to choose what school I attended all over again, I would choose BYU in a heartbeat. Although it is extremely academically rigorous, the environment is incredible and the experience has exceeded all expectations. I love the people I've met and had the people to work with. I feel like there are phenomenal opportunities afforded me and I am given the chance to succeed. I do not love how sometimes the workload is ridiculously difficult. It sometimes feels like I am made to fail, but I am learning a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There's not a lot of diversity; most of the student population falls into the "moderately wealthy white person" category, but despite the lack of diversity, it is increasing, and whatever differences there may be between students, it is never a means of discrimination. Everyone is very kind and accepting.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's very safe. Most people that attend are people with high standards, but there is still a presence of police. I feel perfectly safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It's great. Courses are difficult, but there is enough help if you seek it. The professors are excellent and care about the students. Some of the GEs seem unnecessary though.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are plenty of activities to do. It's not necessarily your typical party scene, seeing as there is never any alcohol or drugs, but there is definitely fun to be found.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is a very high moral standard required by the school to attend. Nobody does drugs or alcohol. The policy enforcement is strict, and the students hold one another to the high standard.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some classes are very large, and it's very difficult to get personal help from the professor, but there are plenty of TAs that can help you. Overall, I found that professors do care about their students though.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm in the business field, and the BYU business school has excellent connections and high job placement.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Because of the culture on campus everyone should feel safe all the time, there are very very few issues with sexual assault and other things like that on campus and when it does happen, the school police is very quick to make kids aware of the situation.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: General class sizes are large so it's hard for the professors to help a lot but the TA's are generally very helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are next to limitless options, and in each department they are very helpful in finding internships and job opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've had good and bad experiences with the housing around BYU. There are always going to be nicer places than others, but they will always be more expensive.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There isn't really any greek life at BYU...

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: BYU does a great job of making it an exciting part of being a student. Supporting you fellow students as they try to help our school look better.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a great school and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Of course it has it's struggles but there's not going to be a school that has everything you could ever want or need.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's cheap, relatively close to campus, and there's a free shuttle service. I love living on campus.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Parties are great. There's no beer or alcohol or illegal things.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Dances can be fun. I don't really go to a lot of parties.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The teams are great and most students have a lot of spirit, but game days can be a nuisance for students who live near the stadium.

5 College Junior

Academics: BYU is a very competitive school with high expectations of it's students. There are many great places around campus to study and the library is an incomparable resource.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There've been a few incidents, but overall I feel pretty safe on and around campus and our campus security is friendly and reliable.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love this school! The atmosphere is positive and everyone is hardworking. It can be intimidating at times, but it isn't too difficult to find friends to commiserate with. The professors are generally helpful and concerned for their students. I've had a couple who don't care about students as much, but for the most part they're pretty fantastic.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU is very reputable in the career community but that also means there are a lot of expectations as well.

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.
