3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: See above. There are your typical Red Lobster, Cafe Rio, In-and-Out Burger, Olive Garden, Panda Express, etc.

4 College Senior

Local Area: But you will definitely need a car to get to SLC for shopping, restaurants, professional sporting events & shows. Its ply about 40-45 min away. Provo, doesn't really have much to offer outside of campus. Heading to the nearby ski resorts and mountains is a great escape, however!

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Strict honor code curfew reduces after hours loitering; no alcohol or drugs allowed on campus either.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: If you start looking early enough, you can find something close to campus for a reasonable price.

4 College Junior

Majors: For Public Health I didn't need to apply to get into my program. I just declared and that was that. My academic advisor (Farris Child) is pretty phenomenal.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love my program! Public Health allows you to get involved in SO many things. Public Health is a huge issue right now! It includes personal safety and healthy lifestyles. I have the health promotion emphasis, so I basically get to get the word out about good lifestyles, and anti-drug campaigns, and being active, etc. It's so much fun. So many opportunities to get involved in things you're passionate about.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Loved living on campus my freshman year! I suggest living off campus after freshman year. Wyview is awesome, but is far from classes. The New Heritage buildings are SUPER nice and close!

5 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics play a big role in student life. Especially football, basketball, and women's soccer.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: What's great about BYU is that the students don't need drugs and alcohol to enjoy themselves. We have a one-up on those who participate in substance abuse because we have a blast, and then we remember it the next morning.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Many majors are very competitive and difficult to enter. I think it is good because it gives the students who have passion for that major the motivation to work hard to enter.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am currently applying for the Business Management program. So far I have loved it. I think there is a lot of competition and requires lots of work but overall it is great!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a lot of support from students to NCAA sports. There is also a great amount of intramural sports that students can participate in as well.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are many options for those who do not feel safe on campus. An example is a police escort for those who have to walk on campus at night and don't feel very comfortable.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There aren't any fraternities or "Greeks" on campus as far as I know.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options. It may be more difficult for those who do not have cars, but if you have the option to dive you have many options within 10 minutes.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is fairly average. All of the different apartments are nearly the same, some may be better or worse but there isn't a huge difference. It is nice having them so close to campus, but pricing becomes high very quickly due to the fact demand is high, so prices are quickly raised as a result.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I think the strictness is great. Due to the honor code, we all agree to abide by the rules before attending school. I therefore believe nobody should have a problem with the University enforcing the code we agreed to abide by.

5 College Senior

Academics: The business programa is inspiring.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Everyone looks out for everyone else

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't know much about on campus housing as I've always lived off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I don't have any specific examples, but I always feel safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wish there were more scholarship opportunities. But the tuition is very affoardable.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Small class sizes, great instruction, excellent job placement.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Cost of living seems too high. An apartment of 6 guys will be as much as 2000 a month!

Party Scene: Social life is very prevalent, but not a lot of communication as to when or where.

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 ( 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.
