4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love eating out. Usually it's below $10 and close to campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great education, great teachers, great students. It's awesome being surrounded by thousands of the countries best and brightest.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: BYU, a private school run by the LDS church, and drugs, just don't go together at all. Nearly all the students have really high morals. You can probably find drugs if you try, but, good luck...

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Since BYU is a church school, most everyone is a member of the LDS church. Some student are not. For the most part, BYU is not very diverse.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Very attractive students who are hard working and very religious, as BYU is a religious school!

3 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: lots of clubs to join and activities to go to. Never bored.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Good academics and social atmosphere. Also very friendly students.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: applying for scholarships is super easy. Applying for FAFSA is more tricky, because you have to deal with the government's policies as well as BYU's.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The Honor Code outlines the rules and what will happen if you break them. Rules are strict but still okay.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is good. Prices are okay and the dorms are good. They're in the process of tearing down all the old buildings so new, bigger buildings can be built!

3 College Sophomore

Parking: not a huge need for a car on campus. Parking spots fill up fast and the student lots are far away from everything!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: New Heritage dorms are amazing. Tons of room. It's very social if you talk to the people in your ward. There's a great family atmosphere in those dorms.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: With many roommates that are athletes I have seen a lot of the athletic life. It's great. Students are supportive and athletes are given lots of help to succeed.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm often confused about what's going on. I also had a great high school GPA and didn't get a scholarship. It's very competitive.

3 College Freshman

Technology: There are lots of computer labs. Campus wifi can be slow. Printing is kind of pricey. 7 cents per page adds up.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: A large majority of the students are smart, attractive, and well put together. Most people are up for a good time and are willing to get to know people.

2 College Freshman

Parking: For freshman living in the dorms parking is hard to find and the permits are confusing. My roommates have gotten several parking tickets for parking in the apparent "wrong spot."

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There are lots of events in Provo. Nearby there are many places to shop, east, hike, and ski.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: All I've been on is the Frontrunner to SLC. It's nice, not too expensive, but you have to get a ride to the station in the winter or walk when its warm.

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.
