Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid,but I was awarded a full tuition scholarship. Scholarships however are rare, and limited due to the already low cost of tuition.

Academics: The academics at BYU are amazing, especially for their price. Professors are all well trained and skilled in their teaching areas. Classes are challenging no doubt, but that is why the school is considered so prestigious. The social scene may not be for you, but the academics make up for it.

Guys & Girls: Students are very religious and mostly closed minded. If you are coming to school for a purely academic experience then this is the place for you. If you want to get married then this is the place for you. The dating scene is huge. The social life however is very different from most other colleges. There is no drinking. There is a curfew. There is a dress code. If you are not prepared to follow these rules then the social life will be really hard.

Administration: I feel like the rules and regulations at the school are made for a reason, and that they have been put in place for a reason. I feel that the policies that are enforced are for the protection of the students and that they are there to enhance the college experience and atmosphere. I feel like the policies that are given are very fair and some are strictly enforced because they need to be for the safety and protection of the community.

Campus Housing: The campus housing department is in the process of renovating and rebuilding the current on campus housing. From what I have heard from the students who live in the newly build on campus housing it is very nice. It is updated with convenient plugs and WiFi. I have also heard there are lots of common areas for people to gather. It is fairly priced for students. They are placed in very great locations that are easy access to campus, so students who live there don't feel the need to have a car.

Local Area: There is a very good feeling here both for college students and for families. There are lots of different opportunities to serve, learn, and do activities. There are many places for shopping and to participate in sports. The city is very excepting of the college students, and I even feel like when school is on break the city misses the fun excitement that college students bring. So it is a great experience for students and then once they graduate from college many students find a house here and begin their families. It is a very family friendly environment that people really enjoy. There are many great attractions very close such as water parks, but it is also close the bigger cities that have more opportunities for activities and experiences.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options to choose from when deciding where to live when you are at college. There is a good price range so that all students are accommodated. As long as you begin early to search for housing there are usually plenty of options to choose from. But if you wait until the last minute you are definitely more limited in your options. In the older apartment complexes it can be tough to find parking because they do not have very big parking lots. I have personally experienced this problem during this current school year. There are more cars then there are parking spaces. Just in general in Provo there is a problem with the parking availability. If you live at a newer apartment complex you usually have a specific parking space assigned to you, so it is not as big of a problem to find parking. I also feel like the different places to live are very safe. You can talk with the housing department on campus and they are available to help with finding apartments for students to live in.

Party Scene: There are many activities to participate in. There are activities that are put on by the school student association and also by students having activities or parties at their apartments. When there are parties there is always good mingling and opportunities to meet new people. There is also always a good variety of activities to choose from that you can attend. The activities that are available have a positive influence on others by the atmosphere and it also helps people create a bigger circle of friends that they can do other things with.

Athletics: I feel like the athletic facilities work very well for both students and athletes. I also feel like there is good advertisement for sporting events. When I attend games I also feel like there is a good fan support system of both students and alumni. I feel like there is great school spirit at the games too that is brought on by the players of the team, by students, or by the cheerleaders.

Off-Campus Dining: I feel like there are a good amount of options in choosing food. There are places for all kinds of people to eat according to their health needs. I also feel like the food is decently priced so it is not going to be hard for college students to afford buying food.

Majors: I really enjoy my program. I really feel like the teachers care about the students. I feel like they are very educated about what they are teaching and are willing to learn new things about the topics they are teaching. I feel like the homework that is assigned is very worth while and even though it may be a big project, it is worthwhile because it is adding to my knowledge and experience of my major. I also feel like there are ample opportunities for internships.

Health & Safety: I feel like the security on campus is very safe. I feel like there is enough safety services available that if there was a problem there would be people there to help solve the problem. I also feel like the students are aware and willing to help if there is a problem. I am confident that if someone asked for a student to assist them the students would be more then willing to give the help needed. I feel safe walking across campus and being in my classes.

Local Area: Living in a small city calls for us all to be creative with what we do on the weekends! With that in mind, downtown Provo is filled with a variety of restaurants, shops and venues where there is almost always something to entertain us with.

Party Scene: Depending on where you live and who you associate with will expose you to the social scene that you are seeking for. There are always parties to attend on the weekends if you know where you look!

Campus Housing: I love on campus housing, at least as a freshman. I will not stay on campus after my freshman year, but for a freshman on campus housing is great!

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.
