5 College Sophomore

Administration: They are very about a lot of things, but it's all for a good reason. That's why this is such a prestigious and safe school.

Weather: Inversions are the only thing to complain about. The mountains trap the pollution and it can get pretty bad, but otherwise it's usually pretty sunny and nice

Off-Campus Dining: Whether on or off campus, there's always a bunch of places to choose from. I've had some of the best Mexican food ever next to campus. If you're not into that, there's plenty of places ranging from Asian cuisine to a good old American burger.

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of options for single students ranging in prices. For married couples its a little harder, but I commute 10 mins to school and I don't mind it at all. There are always plenty of basement suites.

Weather: It sometimes gets cold and slippery to walk or drive. It bothers me a little bit, but, overall, its not bad.

1 College Junior

Party Scene: My school is the most stone-cold sober school in the nation; we don't party by normal standards. We watch movies together and play games. Most other social activities are centered around church-life.

Transportation: Students who live farther away have the option of the campus shuttles which leave twice every hour. Its about $100 a semester; overall, a good value. Public transportation is good and will get you to almost any place you want to go. Finding out bus schedules and the right bus to go on can be difficult and confusing.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe here. People who decide to go here sign an honor code. They agree to live by certain standards. Generally, I almost always feel comfortable on campus and with the people here.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Its hard to get financial aid. There is so much competition or scholarships and financial aid; its hard for an average person to get them.

Scholarships: I feel like everyone receives financial aid but me. So many people are here on scholarship and I have applied for many but received none.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus yet but everyone seems to love it!

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: It's just normal, nothing to special

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Plenty of fun and cheap things to do off campus!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am always being challenged, nothing is ever too easy. At the same time, nothing is ever unbearable.

4 College Sophomore

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.)

5 College Junior

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.

2 College Junior

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

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.
