5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Admission into Brigham Young University does not come easy, as it is the largest of any religious university and the third largest private university in the United States. To be considered for admittance, one most show that they are serious about their academics - a strong GPA, SAT score, and school/community involvement/organization associations are certainly favorable and a plus. this schools has a high moral standard, and those that enter agree to abide by the schools honor code. This is a university that you will feel a great sense of accomplishment and pride about when you hang your diploma on your wall.

Party Scene: First of all, night life does not mean parties and beer. At BYU, there are a lot of night activities from hiking and riding bikes to dates to movie nights to many other awesome activities. This school is not the typical 'to the bar' type of school and many of the activities are fun and enjoyable but still within the honor code of the school and the morality of the individual student. I have had a lot of fun night activities here, and I have loved every one.

Party Scene: BYU has a low party atmosphere (party meaning the traditional sense with beer and drugs and sex). BYU has fun, clean gatherings where students get together and have fun and enjoy themselves without drugs and alcohol. Because these social scenes are not considered the usual party scene, I would say that BYU has a horrible party scene, but in my opinion, that is awesome. I am against the consumption of beer and alcohol, so anything where that is the normality is not good in my opinion.

Academics: In my opinion, BYU is on the more difficult side, but still within the realms of fairness. I have the opinion that if you work hard and do your best, you are bound to get a descent grade. It may not be an A, but B's in most classes are entirely possible, which for BYU is still a great grade. BYU is highly competitive but the classes and academics are renowned throughout the country and hold a high standing among most jobs and opportunities. I think BYU academics is perfect, offering the right amount of difficulty with possibility.

Diversity: Many people would say that BYU is not a diverse place, in which they are correct. However, taking into consideration that BYU-Provo is a religious university located in Utah, the religious and racial diversity is not going to substantial as it probably is in other parts of the country. However, that being said, I think BYU is very diverse because there are students here from all around the world: from places in Eastern and Southeastern Asia, Africa, throughout Europe and from practically every country in South and Central America, and from every state in the US. Although it is not numerically a diverse school, the amount of people from different locations is extreme.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Brigham Young University is a religious university, where the acts of using drugs and alcohol and smoking are not in compliance with the way we live our lives. We believe that it is against the commandments to partake of these substances, and as such, there is a strict no-drug-no-alcohol policy but it is driven more by personal morality and cleanliness. As such, BYU probably has some of the least about of drug and alcohol use on campus. As far as safety goes, I personally have not seen any dangers or felt like I was in a dangerous situation. But still, you should always be careful and cautious, but that goes for everywhere else as well. I fell very safe at BYU.

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.
