3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat out very much, so I'm not the best person to rate this, but when I do eat out, there are a lot of different places to choose from. A lot of people in Provo are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have served missions for the Church in various places throughout the world. We have a lot of smaller, ethnic options because many of these returned missionaries start small restaurants with options from the places that they served in. Lots of these smaller restaurants pop up every year, so it definitely keeps the off-campus dining scene interesting and new!

Off-Campus Housing: I'll be honest and just say that I've had problems with a couple of apartment managers in the past, but for the most part, it's very easy to find great off-campus housing. Prices are usually within a reasonable range. It's easy to find places with good contracts for great prices. There's a lot of housing really close to campus as well.

Athletics: I'm not a big sports fan, but I have been to a few basketball and football games in the time that I've been here. The fans are awesome and really make the games so much fun! We have lots of fans that will camp out in front of the Marriott Center (Gorgeous facility!) during basketball season and tons of people have the student (ROC) passes to go to the games.

Administration: I love the safety and protection that comes from following the Honor Code. The Honor Code itself is a big part of the reason why I chose to come to school at BYU. It has been very well enforced in all of the apartment complexes that I've lived in. I've heard of places where it isn't as strictly enforced, but I prefer to live in places where it is. I think it really does contribute to BYU being the third (?) safest university in the nation and I love it!

Campus Housing: I lived in one of the New Heritage buildings last year and the quality was great. It was super spacious, clean, and livable. However, the arrangement of he buildings and the rooms within the buildings is not conducive to a social atmosphere. There is not enough incentive to get out of your room unless you already know people.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't had the opportunity to really experience much of the off-campus dining. But from what I have experienced, there are a lot of options, though not entirely cost-effective. I'm excited to be able to try more things soon.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Though there is a lot going on on campus, just about everyone seems to find time for some sort of sport, whether is be a varsity team or a lower division intramural team. Athletics are super important to a lot of people on campus, and the school spirit is awesome. The athletics atmosphere is what really gives us an edge.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've only lived in one location off campus, so my view is a little different than those who have had the opportunity to live in multiple locations. I love my apartment complex though and the landlord is awesome. It's pretty close to a bunch of things, but the walk to campus can be a little long and will probably continue to increase in difficulty as the weather worsens.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: I love the feel of Provo and the surrounding cities. People are usually very friendly and there is quite a bit to do around town. The proximity to the mountains is awesome for outdoor activity. There could be more/better restaurant and shopping options, but the lack thereof is probably better for my wallet.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Many of the restrictions set forth by BYU are there to protect students from danger both spiritually and physically. However, some of the rules, such as the ban against beards, has no logical purpose. I think that the honor code restrictions, though overall helpful and positive, could use some revision based on cultural changes over the past several years.

Health & Safety: BYU is number 1 Stone Cold Sober school and it's very safe. Violence, drugs, and other things are unacceptable.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There's plenty of housing available, you just have to sign up for it. BYU has a standard that off campus housing must meet in order to qualify for housing BYU students.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: BYU works hard in every way to give all students the best college experience for everyone in a clean, safe environment.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: There is always something happening in Provo and the nearby cities. There are amazing restaurants, great nature adventures, and if you honestly can't find something to do, you should get out of bed and do something.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a half tuition scholarship my first year. All I did was click a button that said, apply for scholarship and within a few weeks before the start of school they gave me the ok.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: BYU offers a wide variety of social activities for both on and off campus students. On campus housing is located near campus diners and grocery stores for students' needs.

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.
