1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There aren't any fraternities or "Greeks" on campus as far as I know.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options. It may be more difficult for those who do not have cars, but if you have the option to dive you have many options within 10 minutes.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is fairly average. All of the different apartments are nearly the same, some may be better or worse but there isn't a huge difference. It is nice having them so close to campus, but pricing becomes high very quickly due to the fact demand is high, so prices are quickly raised as a result.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I think the strictness is great. Due to the honor code, we all agree to abide by the rules before attending school. I therefore believe nobody should have a problem with the University enforcing the code we agreed to abide by.

5 College Senior

Academics: The business programa is inspiring.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Everyone looks out for everyone else

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't know much about on campus housing as I've always lived off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I don't have any specific examples, but I always feel safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wish there were more scholarship opportunities. But the tuition is very affoardable.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Small class sizes, great instruction, excellent job placement.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Cost of living seems too high. An apartment of 6 guys will be as much as 2000 a month!

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Social life is very prevalent, but not a lot of communication as to when or where.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Students agree to live by an Honor Code which I think improves campus life and academic performance

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: I have not been here long enough to know, but there appears to be quite a number of activities and things to do throughout town and the neighboring cites.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have yet to get into my program, but experienced confusion when the program declared I needed certain classes but after speaking with a counselor I found that some of those were outdated. Fortunately I found out before the semester began so as not to be behind a semester with the classes I will need to take.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you're not a freshman straight out of high school, you have to live off campus. Searching for places off campus is extremely difficult. The large apartment complexes are somewhat easy to identify and look into, but townhome/condos or homes are impossibly difficult to come across though there are many that are here for off campus housing. The cost is relatively decent, but often landlords want more than its worth. Many of the homes and even some apartments are run down and not taken care of, and the furniture and appliances are extremely old and worn- especially mattresses; they need to be replaced! Landlords are often cheap and won't fix things, or greedy and suck up security deposits but don't use that for actual repairs or cleaning. Parking is a disaster in most situations- a home with 4 people and only 1 parking spot.. and the entire neighborhood has 3 guest parking spots, and no street parking.

5 College Student

Athletics: Sports are huge. Always popular, big deal. Lots of involvement, school spirit, support. Facilities pretty nice.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options, up to byu expectations.

5 College Student

Administration: They let you live your life but expect and ensure that you follow the rules, for your own safety and the safety of others. The atmosphere and quality of campus life and people is great because the rules are followed.

4 College Student

Local Area: Lots of stuff going on off and on campus all the time.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Dorms are well cared for. Everyone gets along and there's always lots of activities and things to do. Convenient living on campus. Eassy to get a space if done on time.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Campus crime is mostly innocent such as trespassing or stolen bikes. Since the honor code is in place, alcohol and drugs are barely used or an issue. Byu has it's own police force who roam campus and are always available. The school is very safe and I never feel insecure.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There are places for everyone who wants to live off campus. They are contracted through byu and abide by all their rules. They are mostly reasonable prices. Usually not a ton of parking but sufficient. Extremely safe. School helps tremendously.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus is very safe. Crime is rare, assaults are rare, the police are always around, there are emergency button poles placed everywhere.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are a lot of good local restaurants. There are dance clubs and concert halls. There are a huge number of slushie/icecream/frozen yogurt shops for students. Almost everyone in Provo is a student, so the local attitude is pretty good.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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 ( 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.
