4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I am able to have clean fun with friends who keep my standards.

Administration: Even though it can be strict, I think it is such a good implementation. Many schools have rules and then don't enforce them. People here know the rules and they are enforces and so people follow them, making the campus experience better.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love Thai/Indian food, and there's a lot of that around. But it's almost impossible to get decent Mexican/Chinese food. (Cafe Rio and Costa Vida don't count, although I love Costa Vida's burritos. They serve Southwestern food, not Mexican food. There's a difference.)

Administration: The honor code is rigorously enforced. But that's literally what you signed up for when you decided to come to BYU. As in, you signed the honor code. But parking enforcement is predatory, and that sucks.

Weather: I really hate the snow. And the inversion during the winter is brutal.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: If you're a single student, you have to live within 2 miles of school, which stinks. This allows landlords to jack up prices, but wince the cost of living here is so low, it ends up being okay. Most rooms are shared rooms, which I know isn't typical. Most of the housing is pretty old, but there are some newer, nicer, more expensive places. They tend to have a reputation though.

Academics: I love studying economics! The faculty here are really great. And they all speak English, which in my field is very nice.

Scholarships: BYU already subsidizes our tuition, so it's difficult to get more funding. Most people lose their scholarship after their freshman year, and once you lose it it's almost impossible to get it again.

Local Area: Provo is a nice town. The fact that we have a temple just up the hill is great, and student wards are usually a lot of fun. But it could be more diverse and if things were open after midnight, that would be great.

Drug Safety: Drinking and drug use are against the honor code. The honor code is taken very seriously here. Almost all of the student's are LDS, and it is against what we believe to drink or use drugs.

Campus Housing: I lived in Heritage Halls, which is the apartment style on campus housing that was available when I was a freshman. They've torn almost all of them down, and I'm pretty sure the last of them are being town down by the end of the year. New Heritage, which they're building where Heritage Halls used to be is supposed to be very nice, although I've never been. Mostly freshman live in the dorms.

Weather: Coming from Austin, TX I am not a huge fan of the snow but I am managing!!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know what this is honestly.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Most of the people that attend BYU are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints but there still are some that come and are not but we welcome everyone and have a great atmosphere.

Majors: I had an internship before I came to college and it was wonderful! They liked me so much that I was hired on the spot and worked in the Kids Club there for many months before I left for college. I will definitely do internships in the future.

Majors: I love kids and I want to help them. I would do anything as long as involved those two things. Although jobs don't pay well with childcare, I love it so much that it doesn't even matter.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I have participated in many athletic classes and in intramurals. They are always full and a huge hit! Lots of fun!

Local Area: Provo is a great city and there are always different activities going on!

4 College Freshman

Technology: For the most part I have great wireless access and there are printers all over campus to use and it is not very expensive either. Great system.

5 College Freshman

Administration: BYU follows a very strict honor code that keeps the students looking and feeling their very best. The honor code keeps us all safe and helps us live healthy and happy!

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am a pre-special education major right now. I get to apply the beginning of my sophomore year but the pre-requisites that I have taken so far have been awesome and I have really enjoyed them and have learned a lot. I volunteer through BYU with different organizations and clubs that work with kids with or without special needs and they are all wonderful opportunities and great experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm life for me was very nice and convenient. BYU has some pretty nice property that is well taken care of.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are better choices than others. The best choices always fill quickly.

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.
