Scholarships: It's really difficult to receive financial aid when you are a middle class, white citizen and your dad still works.

Administration: Very strict on the honor code. living in dorms is inconvenient because you can't have the opposite gender over. however, there are many good attributes of the honor code (no alcohol, drugs, etc)

Campus Food: really good food, lived on a meal plan for a year and never got bored of food. lots of options for vegans

Scholarships: Financial aid is a difficult thing to acquire at BYU. Most of the students who attend BYU come from conservative families and as such, most students seek financial aid to cover the cost of their schooling. My experience so far with financial aid has been relatively easy--but frustrating as well. My parents make enough money to cover my tuition, but with the medical problems my mother has gone through within the last few months, tuition isn't something I would like my parents to have to worry about. As such, I'm trying all I can to help them out with that sector of finances. The BYU financial office doesn't take into consideration all sides to an issue before telling a student "no" of "yes" to financial aid. I am also listed as a transfer student and because of that I do not qualify for any scholarships from the school until after I have completed 2 full-time semesters. While I understand that BYU is a highly ranked and highly competitive school, I do wish the financial situation was easier to deal with.

Campus Food: The campus food is often good. At times I find the prices to be a little too high for the quality of food I'm receiving, so I tend to eat at home more so than often, but when I need something to eat and I'm in a hurry, the food on campus never seems to fail me when it comes to finding something delicious.

Campus Housing: One great thing about BYU is that they offer on-campus housing for freshman students. I feel as if by providing this housing option for new students it allows the students to enter the new school year feeling comfortable and at ease as the campus can sometimes be a little overwhelming. For older students, on-campus housing is an option as well, but most students opt for off-campus housing as it gives these students a sense of independency. While the LDS Honor Code is a code implemented and held to a high degree by the school, as all housing facilities are contracted with the school in order to ensure safety for students, it is not something new that hinders the overall quality of the housing for BYU students.

Health & Safety: Admission to this university requires following an honor code; no alcohol or drugs; sexual intercourse outside of marriage is strongly discouraged and a violation of the honor code. Overall, a private school with some rules and restrictions, but a good school nonetheless in health and safety.

Athletics: Football team has had rough patches, but decent. Men's Rugby are many-timed champions. Men's and Women's Volleyball are huge; Soccer for both teams are big as well.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: It doesn't necessarily focus on the Greek Life, but is nonetheless a great school.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Costs are pretty high but again I'm not sure how they rate to other places. Living conditions are alright and I figure it just kind of comes with being a college student. You have to start looking quickly because they do get taken pretty fast. Again it just depends on the place but you can find a decent one.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There's lots of cool places and lots of diversity so whatever you're craving you can most likely find. There are usually student discounts so that's nice. Lots of great places to visit and friends are always telling me about a new place to check out.

Administration: I feel this is completely based on who you're asking. Personally I like the strictness that BYU has and the standards it upholds. It's a perfect fit for me.

4 College Student

Campus Food: I haven't eaten too much food on campus but what I've had has always been good. No real complaints. Nothing spectacular either but just good food. Usually pretty clean and not too bad lines. Good stuff.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: It's pretty nice. There are some great people and recently my university has been building new dorms which are extremely nice. The problem is the newer buildings are typically meant for freshmen. The off-campus housing is typically pretty nice. There's always the few places you never would think of going but you can find some pretty nice places still. Cost is always up there but again if you're smart you can find a good affordable place. The campus atmosphere is great at BYU. Lots of great people and because most of the students are members of the LDS Church the standards are fantastic. Personally, I love not having to worry about alcohol or drugs on campus. Of course there are always those students who go against the rules but they are few. Really campus life is just great.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to find something comparable to the on-campus dorms.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There's actually a lot of variety and ethnic options, which you wouldn't expect. And theres a huge mall about 10 minutes away from campus that has a lot of restaurants surrounding it!

4 College Student

Administration: It is definitely strict, but it keeps us safe and I appreciate that.

5 College Student

Scholarships: I received a full tuition scholarship!

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.
