Health & Safety: I only heard 1 rumor of sexual assault on campus, and it was many years ago. It just doesn't happen here.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I don't really know what Greek Life is, so we probably don't have it.

Guys & Girls: Attractive student body. People take care of their appearance more than most, and since academic standards are very high nearly everyone is very smart.

Campus Quality: The campus is beautiful, the only downside to it is that construction never seems to end. Creating a beautiful and effective environment is important to the school, so they are always tearing down old buildings that have outlived their usefulness and building newer, more beautiful ones.

5 College Senior

Majors: I love my major and my department. There are so many opportunities to participate in research, work individually and in groups with professors, and assist other students. I'm an astronomy major and I can't think of another university which would allow me weekly access to an on-campus 16'' telescope.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Okay, so it doesn't have the largest variety, but I've always felt it is a very accepting school . Despite being a religious university, I've met several students who are not of the same religious beliefs who enjoy being here and felt included at the school

4 College Senior

Campus Food: The Food Court has a large variety which covers a large range of value and quality. I have always been able to find something I want regardless of my mood. The Food court is in a pretty good location for most classes, but several other buildings on campus also have dining available, so you never have to walk to far for food.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Some of these questions are not very well written because I don't know what to answer. There is no form of Greek Life on campus and the university doesn't allow fraternities and sororities and its a good thing because I think they only cause problems.

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on or around campus even when I am walking home at midnight. There is nothing in provo, at least the area around the campus, that would make me at all afraid to be outside even at night time.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: The school is subsidized by the tithing of faithful members of the church and so the buildings are used as much as possible before they are reconstructed. Therefore there are a lot of old buildings on campus that are pretty ugly but I don't really care.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I am only entering in a response here because I have to but I have never actually lived on campus. My wife lived on campus and she said that she loved. The social scene in on campus housing is supposed to be really great.

4 College Senior

Majors: I am just now starting an unpaid internship which are easy to find and the process for enrolling is very simple. The paid internships are a little more tricky to find but they are definitely still available if you look for them. The professors do a good job at announcing different opportunities.

5 College Senior

Majors: I am an exercise Science major, so there was no program that I had to actually apply for. I just applied for the exercise science major and got in without any difficulty. There are some programs like the nursing program and accounting programs that are very competitive and hard to get into.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Students are very friendly because they are all (for the most part) trying to become more christlike. People are super helpful if you have a question and will go the extra mile to help you out. People are very competitive academically on campus.

Scholarships: If you have an eligible GPA you can apply for either a full academic scholarship or a half academic scholarship. The application process is super easy and takes very little time at all. You can also apply for FAFSA which process is also made super simple by the school.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: This university is deferent than almost all other universities because students are all members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Nobody drinks alcohol or uses drugs and if they do they are definitely the exception. Night life is more of just hanging out with friends and going to different places to eat or going on night hikes.

4 College Senior

Local Area: I really enjoy Brigham Young University Provo, because it is right next to the mountains which are very beautiful. Being right next to the mountains lends itself to providing a lot of awesome hiking and camping opportunities. We are only about three hours away from Arches National Park which is amazing.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of housing for single people and the quality is typically pretty high as long as your are willing to pay around 300 per month sometimes cheaper. Married housing is usually harder to find a good deal on. If you want to pay less that 700 per month on housing, just expect to live in a dumpy apartment.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: There are many fast food restaurants available on campus that are reasonable priced. Some of them include Taco bell, Chick Fil A, and Subway. Those are my favorites. There are fewer options at the fast food restaurants on campus in the food court but the important options are definitely there.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Tons to do and lots of outdoor activities.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: The schools so competitive. I still need financial aid and can't find any.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: There's not really alcohol and any of the events off campus that students go to. The entertainment is usually of high quality because people are actually listening.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: You have a lot of fun when you are a Freshmen. After that, off campus housing is great.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: A lot of wonderful teachers and opportunities for learning.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: People love BYU graduates when higher because they are known for high moral ethics and for being hard working.

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.
