This has been a great college experience - it has offered me an insane amount of options compared to other universities, as far as major selection, teacher-student ratio and involvement, clubs, fine arts, community events, service and volunteer opportunities, and research and work experience. Regular on-campus events include weekly speeches from renowned leaders from all religions, institutions, causes, fields, and industries. This is THE place to be for anyone who wants an academically rigorous, culturally diverse experience (in spite of it being attended mostly by white kids) and the local and international connections that a large university has to offer, with the close-knit feeling of a small campus. It will prepare you well for the outside world if you take advantage of all of the resources it has to offer!

Brigham Young University of Idaho is a wonderful school! The teachers there are always willing to help and explain things if you do not understand. It is a school focused on helping students not only excel in academics but also gives students opportunities to learn to excel as leaders and learn how to serve in communities. The school does not have sports programs, but has intermural teams and that allows everyone to participate. Also, there is a no drinking and no drug policy for all students and professors giving you people that are focused on getting an education.

I love BYU. It's very difficult at times to stay on top of everything I need to do for my classes and extracurricular activities, but I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. The student life is awesome, there are always things going on, just about everyone you pass on campus is friendly, and the overall atmosphere is uplifting and positive. The students get very involved in sports and other events, and the school spirit is off the charts. I've had so many life-changing experiences here, made lifelong friends, and learned more than I ever thought I could. I can't imagine choosing any other school!
