This has been a great college experience - it has offered me an insane amount of options compared to other universities, as far as major selection, teacher-student ratio and involvement, clubs, fine arts, community events, service and volunteer opportunities, and research and work experience. Regular on-campus events include weekly speeches from renowned leaders from all religions, institutions, causes, fields, and industries. This is THE place to be for anyone who wants an academically rigorous, culturally diverse experience (in spite of it being attended mostly by white kids) and the local and international connections that a large university has to offer, with the close-knit feeling of a small campus. It will prepare you well for the outside world if you take advantage of all of the resources it has to offer!

I absolutely love it here at Brigham Young University. Throughout this year, I've come to see what makes it so unique from other schools. Here, we have a rigorous honor code which contrasts from other schools and makes us stand up on a higher platform as examples of the religious background of this university. Even students not of Latter-Day-Saint faith apply because the morals and honor code rules are so high in standard compared to any other university. It demands a discipline of respect to the university, staff, and ourselves. Yes, college is about experiences, and the ones I've gained while studying this past year here have made such an impactful difference in who I am; the various people from such different places have made me see that there are people everywhere who don't have to conform to society and the pressures we face. We should be able to live in a world where we aren't ridiculed by our faith and what we believe in, and although we don't see ourselves as better than others, it's a wonderful feeling to know that I'm not judged or looked down upon because I'm a mormon. The atmosphere here is so positive and inviting; it really is a great place to want to study and to learn. Not to say it's exactly peaceful all of the time - we do get pumped for our extracurriculars (such as our sports game events)! Which, I have to say, are awesome. The students have such a love and respect for one another because we are all seeking to attain higher learning and growth. We come together to learn from each other and our professors through this journey into further adulthood we find after graduating from high school that is so unique from any other experience of education I've ever had. Coming to Brigham Young University has, if nothing else, made me inspired and excited for the rest of my life because I know this is just the start of me refining my abilities to change the world and make it a better place.

I love BYU. It's very difficult at times to stay on top of everything I need to do for my classes and extracurricular activities, but I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. The student life is awesome, there are always things going on, just about everyone you pass on campus is friendly, and the overall atmosphere is uplifting and positive. The students get very involved in sports and other events, and the school spirit is off the charts. I've had so many life-changing experiences here, made lifelong friends, and learned more than I ever thought I could. I can't imagine choosing any other school!
