5 College Junior

Local Area: I love the local area! There are a ton of things to do around town and everyone is so nice!

Off-Campus Dining: They could have a few more places to eat. The variety of different types of food could be better. Also a lot of places don't show that they have a student discount.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It could be better. The school doesn't have a lot of party scenes but different places off campus do.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I love all the choices I had for living off campus. The added freedom is so worth it and you meet people that go to different schools besides just BYU.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The honor code is pretty strict, but most everyone on campus is a member of the LDS Church so following the rules generally isn't that difficult. Some things can be seen as annoyances, such as the beard ban and certain clothing limitations, but generally campus strictness doesn't hugely interfere with campus life.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I'm still a dependent under my parents, but I get very little money from them for school and want some or any kind of scholarship or grant or loan to help me out with school.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My major is an open major so getting in was no problem, but the music program and business program I know are much more difficult to get into. Those two programs were ones I was interested in, and the application process is long and difficult, but the colleges are generally good at getting back quickly to their applicants about whether they were accepted or not.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For the best freshman experience, living on campus is a great idea. Housing is clean, spacious, affordable, and very close to inner campus and campus jobs. The social atmosphere is fun and friendly, just an overall awesome time.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are a huge part of campus life! Almost everyone participates in intramural sports, and varsity sports games are a huge deal and very popular.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police take their job very seriously, even though there aren't very many incidences of crime on campus. When there are issues, the police are almost always immediate in their response and investigation.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think people may invest more in varsity athletic than they should. It seems unfair that athletes are not expected to work as hard in school. Its all about them doing well in whatever sport they're involved in. Not all of us have that luxury.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is very little campus crime. The most common crime is theft. Campus police and security do a really great job at keeping our campus safe.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It's pretty good! They are pretty good about trusting students to do the right thing and except the consequences if they don't. They let us be adults. Some people really take advantage of this and don't follow the rules, but they are given the opportunity to make their own choices and suffer the consequences.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I actually don't really know. I never lived on campus. But it sounds good from what I've heard.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I can't get financial aid cause my dad has such a high salary. But what they don't consider is that there are 11 kids in my family and my parents are trying to help each of their kids but there is only so much they can do. They can't afford to support us all so I pay for housing, books, food, clothing, etc. by myself. Its very difficult and stressful.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There's a lot to do in Provo! Everyone is super social and there are parties and events all the time. My only problem is the "Mormon Bubble" we live in. I was raised outside of Utah, so its been a cultural difference for me.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many places to choose from! If your price is high, there are really nice places and if its low, there a places that are definitely less expensive, but not a trashy place to live. Parking is ridiculous though. There always seems to be a shortage and because of the curfew, its hard to have visitors over cause their car will get towed or booted. They places are safe and fun! I love living off campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are very good at what they do but are very lienant on things that should be strict

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very safe environment but still feel unsafe about anything that could happen

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Helaman halls can be noisy but it's cool.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Never liked the honor code but live by it anyway.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't really know much about it.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I came as a top student, spend most of my time shopping and dating, and still do well in classes.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Not much going on but very safe.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Very tame but you can go off campus.

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 ( 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.
