3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is good for being social and for academic activities

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The college I am apart of is advanced in it's field. The professors expect more from the students than any other BYU cerriculum. There are many opportunities for employment with counselors designated to make sure the students find those opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the education Brigham Young University provides. They offer rigorous courses that push you to become the best student you can be. This school is unique in that religious content is tied in to the curriculum. It has been the most fulfilling educational experience for me because it has allowed me to not only gain temporal knowledge to be successful in this life, but an eternal appreciation for education and it's beneficial impact on my spirit.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love being at Brigham Young University. My experience so far has been fantastic. I am a member of the swimming and diving team. The coaches are wonderful and so supportive. I can really tell that they care about us as individuals and want us to reach our full potential. The professors are also amazing. They do their best to engage the students in the lectures. I've been able to receive great help from tutors whenever I have needed it. The study groups before every exam have been very helpful. I also love being surrounded by peers with great morals that encourage me to do the right thing.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU is full of great teachers and students. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help. BYU offers great classes and its large student body allow for more diverse classes and majors. The religious environment is one of my favorite things about BYU. No matter what class you're in, you can look forward to hearing inspirational connections between the class topic and God or some other religious point. And the religion classes themselves are some of the best classes at BYU. The teachers know a lot about their subjects and want their students to succeed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think BYU does a great job at combing in religion and education all into one. It helps keep you focused on the most important things in life. Not only this but the schooling is great. A good staff and a good courses make for a very nice learning environment here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of my favorite experiences at my school have involved my classes and what I have learned. I have also made great friends, some which I will stay in contact with my whole life.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU is unique in that it acts as the LDS Mecca for young adults. The curriculum is getting increasingly harder with each new class of incoming freshmen, and staying with your studies must be your first priority if you want to succeed at this school. You have to be willing to sacrifice loafing or socializing in order to get good grades and keep learning. It's hard, and sometimes you get lost in "the bubble," so it's important to remember who you are and represent yourself correctly, even if it seems like being you isn't the coolest option. This is a school that will challenge you in all aspects of life. This is a school that might rip you apart, but if you let it, it will rebuild you into something glorious and unstoppable.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Everyone is so focused on learning and becoming better. While the school could use more diversity most people are helpful and friendly. The staff has always been very helpful and really want you to succeed. I struggled at the start of one class and my professor saw it. He reached out to me and invited me to meet with him. He talked to me about how we could help me catch up and gave me ideas that helped me be more successful.

Overall Experience: BYU is amazing! Not being from Utah, being around many other people - both LDS and non-LDS - with high standards is extremely refreshing. I would encourage serious students from any religion to apply to BYU if they want to focus on scholarship without the problems many other universities encounter due to the distractions of alcohol, drugs, etc. That is not to say that we don't have fun! We find many other ways to have a good (wholesome) time. Sporting events are amazing and very participatory, even for the audience. Overall, BYU is a wonderful place to get a great education!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love BYU!!! It is such a clean campus. I love the "honor code" which keeps drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, premarital sex, or any of that stuff away from the student body. Everyone here is pretty smart and fun and nice. I mean, of course, there are some exceptions but I love BYU. The professors are nice and caring and this university is very affordable if you are a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I didn't even apply and they gave me a full tuition scholarship just because of my academic standing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One of the things that makes my school unique is that it is owned by my faith. This is part of the reason I would choose it all over again because I know that I am going to be in a safe and nurturing environment. This is important to me because I want to further my education but also have fun and meet great people which I know on campus will be safe and clean. I am visiting the campus for the first time later this week but even though I haven't been there I've already had lots of contact with different students and staff who have been very helpful as I've tried to figure the whole college thing out. Even though I still haven't set foot on the campus I know it's going to be an amazing experience from what I've heard about my school and college in general. I'm really excited too for our two-day orientation and homecoming because I've looked at what they have planned and know it is going to be awesome.

Overall Experience: Brigham Young University is considered a private school and has strict standards. Because there are so many things you can get into trouble for, there are a lot of different activities that don't break the law or their honor code. Sometimes it's fun, other times you wish you had just gone to a party school. It also has a strong Mormon background. If you are not of the religion you may find it hard to adjust to just how intense it is. One great example is that they require students to have at least one religion class each term. Oh! They also pray before every class, that was a strange experience. As far as the difficulty of the work I'd say it's pretty rigorous. It's pretty much every Mormons dream school so you have people from literally around the world applying for a spot. Just to get in you have to have a decent gpa and resume. Because you have some of the smartest minds they don't fall shy when it comes to the amount of work you have to do and how much time you put into each class. I will say that the teachers are always willing to work with you and they are interested in helping you pass. I never had a problem going to a professor and asking them to review my paper or give me hints as to what to study for the final.

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed attending Brigham Young University. I really like how my religion is incorporated into my learning experience because it helps me look at educational things with a spiritual perspective. I would definitely choose to go to BYU again if I got to because I like the environment, the professors are awesome and make class fun, and it is affordable.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved my experience at Brigham Young University. It has been incredibly challenging. My limits have been pushed, my ideas have changed, and much of how I used to look at the world has been shifted. My professors have all been brilliant. They truly are masters of their subjects, and so much more. They have cared for each student. The student body has inspired me. Living the honor code has contributed to a climate of respect and strength. It has been a remarkable opportunity to be studying at this university.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: You attend BYU because you want to. This is not a school for the feint of heart or spirit: you will work harder here academically than you ever had to in your life and be required to live up to a high standard of morals. If you fear exposure to a party ridden society full of booze and lack of chastity like I did, then you will feel the most comfortable here. You will meet the most incredible people among both students and professors. The bonds you build with them will last for years to come--for that alone it is worth it. There will be plenty of unpleasant experiences along the way; to name a few: curfew, no beards, difficult religion exams, and lack of girls in the engineering department. But it is all part of the ride! There are plenty of unforgettable activities around town and a universe of people to date; you will find fun in all places. If you have completed four years of school here yet still haven't found what it is to be happy among hardships of all forms, then you are not a true BYU Cougar.

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.
