4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its overall great. I would do it again.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The cost is very high for anything comparing it to its sister school BYU-Idaho. However, it is either very old and gross or super new and really expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different places to dine with differing costs, styles, and popularity. Most places also offer a student discount which is great.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Housing is super close to campus and therefore it is very easy to walk to everything that is necessary. However, a car is necessary to do most fun things outside of school.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The parking is reasonable for a large university. However, the enforcement is not up to par. Parking tickets are given out like candy to everyone possible.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I like the wifi that is available everywhere on campus. It is a good speed seeing as how 30,000 people use it. Also, I like the technology in the classrooms. It is available to everyone to use if there are not classes going on and is a great tool for studying.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I like the variety of food on campus. However, the meal plan is not a great way to go because you have to spend all of the money on it and if you do not, then you lose it. Also it is much cheaper to just buy groceries and cook yourself. This is very hard to do with a meal plan.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is very old however the position in relation to campus is perfect. Also, the social atmosphere is great seeing as there are many people close by that share the same morals and have fun. The downside is that because these apartments are old, they are also not the greatest quality.

Campus Food: Most of the food on campus is great. Most of it isn't too expensive, but having to have a meal plan while living in the dorms isn't fun because the meal plans are so expensive!

Campus Housing: Living on campus in New Heritage is the best option and is amazing. It is very social, close to campus, convenient, and pretty easy to get into. It is average in terms of cost, and you don't have to pay extra for electricity, Internet, or anything.

Administration: The honor code of BYU forbids much, and the administration is very strict. It creates order and predictability.

Scholarships: While i don't drive, my friends do, and there is plenty of free parking, but it fills up quickly.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: great hours and excellent quantity ans quality. the best

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Due to price, I cannot fully endorse campus food. It is very tasty, but too expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but from what I have seen and my friends have said, BYU on campus housing is affordable and high quality.

4 College Freshman

Academics: While a very difficult school, it is manageable. Study groups, reviews, and shared google doc notes are common in nearly every class. College in general can take some getting used to but the combination of mental and spiritual growth found at BYU helps you become a better person, not just a better student.

Scholarships: ACT is everything. One point can be the difference between a half tuition and a full tuition - and they don't hand those out like candy. With a 33 one can get a full tuition for two semesters, but if you are looking for a long term, 4 year scholarship, you must at LEAST have a 35.

Local Area: Provo is nearby many other universities so students have opportunities to mingle with peers from all over. It isn't a large city but there is still plenty to do, and the proximity to Salt Lake makes it even more of a prime location.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many older off-campus housing options as well as some new living areas so students get to go with their comfort level. Prices are manageable and the social scene south of campus seems to be a lot greater than that of north or west of campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I needed more and now I stress about money constantly.

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.
