Health & Safety: I haven't heard any bad things happening. It seems pretty safe, and I think students are mostly respectful of one another.

Health & Safety: Because we are at BYU I think that students don't think much about crime on campus. Being in the "mormon bubble" we feel like nothing bad happens, which I think is sometimes a dangerous mindset. I have never felt unsafe though.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've only lived in 2 different places, but I have really liked the places I have lived so far.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Sometimes I have a really hard time with the workload. Especially with the reading required for the general classes. We are expected to read so much! Especially considering some of them are lower level classes. Also, I think that sometimes they make the religion classes much harder than they should be. I have enjoyed a majority of my classes though.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've only lived in one place that is off-campus housing, but I've really liked it so far. The one thing that I absolutely hate though is parking! It is terrible!

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: I actually really like the atmosphere. There are a lot of things around here that you can do and there is always something going on.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I'm actually not very aware of all the off-campus dining as I generally get things from the grocery store and cook. One complaint I do have though is that there are not many options later at night. I get off work after 10 three nights a week and there are probably only 2 places you can go to to eat after 10.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I don't mind most of the things they are strict on, but there are a few things that bother me. One of those things is the policy on the opposite gender being in your dorm/apartment. The university has approved housing and as far as I can tell they all have rules on the opposite gender not being allowed in the apartment after 12:00, or 1:00 on weekends. They are pretty strict on it too, which can get a little irritating.

4 College Junior

Academics: There is a lot of workload and the expectations are high. The education you get is amazing though and totally worth sitting in classrooms for hours on end.

4 College Junior

Majors: I really liked being in the Family and Consumer Science program. All of the professors were really nice and they start to actually care about how you succeed. There is a lot of help along the way to help you finish as fast as possible and get you on their way to a career that you care about.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The school is really involved in the sport teams that they have. They have a ton of fan support and school spirit at all of the football games.

5 College Junior

Local Area: I love the local area! There are a ton of things to do around town and everyone is so nice!

Off-Campus Dining: They could have a few more places to eat. The variety of different types of food could be better. Also a lot of places don't show that they have a student discount.

Party Scene: It could be better. The school doesn't have a lot of party scenes but different places off campus do.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I love all the choices I had for living off campus. The added freedom is so worth it and you meet people that go to different schools besides just BYU.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The honor code is pretty strict, but most everyone on campus is a member of the LDS Church so following the rules generally isn't that difficult. Some things can be seen as annoyances, such as the beard ban and certain clothing limitations, but generally campus strictness doesn't hugely interfere with campus life.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I'm still a dependent under my parents, but I get very little money from them for school and want some or any kind of scholarship or grant or loan to help me out with school.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My major is an open major so getting in was no problem, but the music program and business program I know are much more difficult to get into. Those two programs were ones I was interested in, and the application process is long and difficult, but the colleges are generally good at getting back quickly to their applicants about whether they were accepted or not.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For the best freshman experience, living on campus is a great idea. Housing is clean, spacious, affordable, and very close to inner campus and campus jobs. The social atmosphere is fun and friendly, just an overall awesome time.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are a huge part of campus life! Almost everyone participates in intramural sports, and varsity sports games are a huge deal and very popular.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police take their job very seriously, even though there aren't very many incidences of crime on campus. When there are issues, the police are almost always immediate in their response and investigation.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think people may invest more in varsity athletic than they should. It seems unfair that athletes are not expected to work as hard in school. Its all about them doing well in whatever sport they're involved in. Not all of us have that luxury.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is very little campus crime. The most common crime is theft. Campus police and security do a really great job at keeping our campus safe.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It's pretty good! They are pretty good about trusting students to do the right thing and except the consequences if they don't. They let us be adults. Some people really take advantage of this and don't follow the rules, but they are given the opportunity to make their own choices and suffer the consequences.

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.
