4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy my housing. It's a ways from the campus, but they have a free bus system that runs to the further out apartments

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Plenty of space for the students, and the indoor track is a lot of fun. I'll be coming back here.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy the professors, and there are many things to do on and off campus. They set high standards for the students, but not overbearing.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: As with anywhere, don't be stupid and you are reasonably safe. The same rule applies here. If you are not careful, bad things can happen, so always being observant and careful, combined with a great security based team here, makes this campus fairly safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All of my classes have fun, smart, and engaging professors. Despite this being a religious school, my professors are not afraid to talk about different view points and explain controversial ideas and look at different sides. We are always encouraged to learn for ourselves, to be educated, and stay on the learning process all our lives and make informed decissions.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I was worried about it a bit, but the dorms are awesome. I have made so many friends and every night we all hang out and laugh and have a great time. The food is okay, but I am slightly predisposed to moma's cooking. The classes are great, and everything here is just plain awesome.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: I attend a religious school where drinking and clubbing is not only frowned upon, but also against our honor code. While there is no "Greek Life" here, there are so many fun, clean, and friendly oriented student activities that make up for it. I would not have it change one bit.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not super into sports. I will go to the occasional game or work out here and there, but from what I have seen and from what my friends say, the sport equipment and programs here are awesome.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have loved my college experience so far. I have not been here for very long, but the classes are awesome and I am learning a lot. The classes are hard, and the homework difficult and time consuming, but that is any university anywhere. I love it here so much.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have had some of the best experiences of my life at BYU. There are so many interesting professors with interesting experiences and ideas on a variety of topics.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: This school will help you go places. The motto is Enter to Learn; Go Forth to Serve for a good reason.

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Campus is secure. There are guards, it is well lit, and there are emergency phones. People are usually around and students are helpful and watchful.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Living on campus is the best option for freshman.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have loved my experience here!

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The games are fun and social!

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I honestly do not know a single person who does drugs or alcohol. When I was an undergrad I did hear of off campus parties where there was that kind of stuff, but I never went to any. There is also campus talk about how all the football players drink even though they aren't supposed to. But I would say you would have to go out of your way to get drugs/alcohol here.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I am not into BYU's sports teams, but there is a lot of school/campus pride for them. A lot of people are invested in BYU's athletics. There is also huge involvement in our intramural system.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I don't feel like our campus has crime, but if we do then it's being kept quiet. There have been a few times where there has been some sort of crime related activity and the university has sent out an email warning us. There are campus police that I see around. I feel like my campus is safe.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I did my undergraduate degree here and am now getting my master's degree and I love BYU. I hated it when I first got here back in 2010, but I am so grateful that I chose to go here because the professors I've had and the courses I've taken have helped me find my passion.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors in my program are really open and willing to help when it comes to finding an internship or job. They have connections in the field that they are willing to connect you with. BYU has a good reputation in the public health world from what I know. We don't have employers who come to recruit for public health related jobs on campus, which is unfortunate.

Campus Housing: It was great when I was a freshman, but I live in off campus housing now. It was slightly older and kind of small, but I enjoyed living in the dorms.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Crime on campus is nearly nonexistent. We have a police force ready and waiting to come at a moment's notice.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The courses were of adequate difficulty, geared toward learning. The professors were there to present their material, and cared about their students.

Overall Experience: From what I heard, there were lots of job opportunities available. However, due to the fact I was there only a single semester, I was unable to adequately explore the job field.

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.
