5 College Senior

Overall Experience: A degree from Brigham Young University is one of the most valuable possessions anyone can have in his/her life. It is incredibly outstanding to see a BYU degree on a graduated student's resume. In fact, some major companions even come to BYU to recruit BYU students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I loved almost every single one of my professors. They have done more than teach me a list of facts. They have taught me how to apply what I have learned.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are plenty of opportunities to make connections and find internships throughout the school year.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: When I was a freshman, I lived in on-campus housing. I lived in the old dorms, but since then, they have been knocked down. The new dorms, however, I have seen and they are very nice-looking places.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life, therefore it is the best.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed going to BYU. It has pushed me academically to be better. I would do it all over again if I had to.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics are great, but sometimes I think it's overrated. Football, for instance, is incredibly overrated, but I have to admit that it is always a great time to cheer for your own team. There is more emphasis placed on football here than any other team, but the same goes for most universities anyway.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Brigham Young University was the school I always dreamed of attending. Now that I'm here, I realize that it far exceeds my expectations academically, socially, and spiritually. It is a place where students not only grow mentally, but also in honorable attributes that set them apart from other candidates for jobs they may want to acquire. BYU really sets up its students for success far beyond the college years. It is a great place to obtain an inexpensive, yet valuable education.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and even walking home at night back to my apartment two blocks away. The campus police are always accessible. There have been reports of gropings by a strange man on campus and the campus police sent out an email warning everyone and giving tips. They are very proactive and I never feel that there is any real danger at my school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors and courses make living in Provo totally worth it. They are all brilliant professors that do everything in their power to give students every resource they can. They are all very knowledgable and able professionals. There are a wide variety of classes available, from ballroom dancing, to hundreds of different languages. Class sizes range, I had some classes with 500 students and some with only 30 once I was further in to my major.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are plenty of career prospects from BYU. There is a great alumni network. Recruiters love to come to BYU to find good professionals with integrity. There are lots of opportunities to get involved in clubs and other job fairs. Professors have lots of connections within the business world that will pay off. Many big companies such as Google, Walmart and Adobe recruit at BYU.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics at BYU are always exciting. I didn't go to very many sporting events but the ones I did attend were very fun. The teams are pretty good and win often, it seems. School spirit is awesome and lots of people go to games all decked out or have parties where they watch the away games together.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU is a campus filled with brilliant minds. The professors genuinely care about their students progression and are incredibly insightful, helpful, and knowledgable. Even my big classes have the feel of a small school because the professors are so available, interactive, and motivating. Being at BYU is different than any other college experience because it is a private LDS school. It is something definitely new to get used to living in Utah and being surrounded by LDS people. Some people love it and some miss the diversity that comes with moving to new places and experiencing new things. For me, I was one of the latter. Overall though, BYU is an excellent education that opens up endless opportunities for internships and jobs. Also it is very affordable and in a great location.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus housing is great because it is so close to campus and the social life is incredible. However, it is expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: BYU does not use the Greek rating system or way of life. I enjoy that.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Brigham Young University athletic program is wonderful, but I am not too interested in sports.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Brigham Young University is a wonderful school that is built around high moral standards. Students and professors at BYU are very friendly and intelligent and always seeking to learn and teach others. I enjoy the atmosphere on campus as everyone is happy and welcoming.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I greatly enjoy attending this School.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The MBA program is in the top ten.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: We are actively encouraged to be healthy.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's all recently rebuilt. It's okay.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love being close to the ski resorts.

4 College Senior

Athletics: All sporting events are widely attended.

5 College Junior

Academics: The academics are very good. The programs are competitive and there are many of them. They are quite rigorous.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many possible options and schools, many college s. I'm satisfied. Sometimes it's almost distracting because there are so many options.

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.
