Local Area: Provo is ok, though I'm not a huge fan. The mountains are spectacular and if you are an outdoorsy person, you'll probably love it here. Campus is very close to some great hiking trail-heads, running trails, and not too far away from ski resorts. In terms of culture and the arts, professional sports, and nightlife, Salt Lake is better, though only about an hour from Provo by car and about 1:30 by train.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I'm a grad student so I'm kind of removed from the undergrad party scene. However, most of the parties I've been to were fine. Can be a good place for meeting new people and/or strengthening friendships. So yeah, by and large parties have a positive impact on the student experience.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of incredible people at this school and I have made a great deal of friends. However, if you are interested in diversity, BYU is super bland. Everybody looks, dresses, and acts the same. Much of the dress similarities come from the dress code, but honestly the lack of diversity gets boring sometimes. So if you are all things Mormon and interested in others who are the same as you, this is a great school.

In terms of social life and relationships, BYU is deemed the marriage Mecca of the Inter-mountain West. I'm not going to bother commenting beyond that.

Campus Housing: I'm a grad student and did not attend this school as an undergrad. I live off campus. Admittedly I am biased, but I am so glad I didn't have to deal with campus housing. I'm not a huge fan of the regular cleaning checks that are required in campus housing. I'm sure it's a good idea when dealing with freshmen and/or irresponsible students, but I prefer a housing style where I am allowed to take care of myself, clean up after myself, and generally regarded as an adult rather than a teenager away at summer camp.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am a fan of a rival school and therefore have absolutely zero interest in BYU sports and athletics. However, if you are a runner, the campus is located near some great running trails and has a pretty decent indoor track.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: The department I'm in gives a scholarship to all grad students accepted to the program. Super helpful.

3 College Senior

Academics: Depends on the program. I am studying Linguistics as a grad student. As far as that program goes, it's phenomenal.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Provo is a pretty safe place, however some people can form the mindset that because it's a safe area there is nothing to worry about. Not true. There have been several sexual assaults on and off campus in the last 10 years. It's best to always be on your guard. Even here.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: If you're looking for variety, center street has some good options. Otherwise it's mostly fast food places. In terms of overall variety and student discounts off-campus, the University of Utah is way better.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in wyview as a freshman it is very far from campus and wasn't the most social, but it was a good value Off campus is the way to go!.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is a lot of outdoor activities such as hiking in the summer.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I wish there were more student discounts, but there is a nice variety

1 College Junior

Party Scene: Not too many parties in this area, you will find something to do with your ward and things

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.
