4 College Freshman

Administration: BYU takes its honor code very seriously, but it is in the nature of the students to obey it naturally anyway.

Party Scene: Everyone is very nice and welcoming. Due to the honor code of the university, no alcohol or drugs are tolerated, thus making for an uplifting, yet fun environment.

Scholarships: The process of receiving a scholarship from the school is very smooth and easy. It's automatic: if you attain a certain GPA, then you are eligible for a scholarship, and if not, then you are not eligible.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I thought that there was plenty of variety for on campus dining. However, the only thing is that living in the dorms, there is only one available meal plan that everybody has to purchase, and it is way more money than nearly anybody needs.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in the dorms for one semester and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I met many great, nice people and didn't have any worries about living there.

Administration: the administration places a lot of emphasis on having integrity, so students mostly monitor themselves, but police and administration will step in if things get out of hand

Scholarships: You have to jump through tons of hoops to get a scholarship

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's mostly just regular fast food, but BYU icecream, brownies, and other treats are pretty amazing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: New Heritage is beautiful and very nice and new. There is currently a lot of construction which is a little loud sometimes, but that's set to be finished in less than a year. I will be returning to live in the same place Fall 2015

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We only go out occasionally, but there are a lot of options. Provo has several ethnic restaurants

4 College Junior

Administration: BYU has specific rules. Know them and follow them and you'll do fine.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Apply on time. The deadlines are earlier than you might think. I have a high GPA, so it was easy for me.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The most unique thing about BYU is the combination of spiritual and secular topics. I love it. We are not afraid to live our religion. Another great thing is that not all BYU students are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We aren't forcing our religion on the other students, but the come to understand our religion really well because they are surrounded by it.

Also, BYU gives great education for low cost. This is one of the lowest tuitions in the country.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors tend to be outstanding. The courses that are usually not as great are ones taught by Graduate Students. Class sizes and styles vary greatly. Size can be anywhere from 10 to 800. Style also usually depends on the school and the professor. The business school has very different teaching style than the school of life sciences. The variety of courses offered is amazing. This is a fantastic university.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU is loved by employers. They value a degree from BYU extremely high. The employment rate for BYU is extremely high, especially for the business school (which I am a part of). Recruiting on campus is non-stop. There are always networking opportunities.

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.
