5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Generally very safe. It could be dangerous if someone is not smart about where they go at night, but I have never had any problems walking home late, and neither have most people I know.

Overall Experience: Professors have always been friendly and open when I needed help with things. Some classes, especially freshman classes, are really large, so there is less opportunity for individual help, but they have many teaching assistants who are helpful most of the time. There are many course varieties depending on your major and interests.

Overall Experience: They offer a lot of help for those who want it. There are frequent career fairs. There is actually so many opportunities and help, that it can be overwhelming. Definitely talk to career and academic counselors if you feel off track.

Campus Housing: I know friends who enjoyed it. I have always lived off-campus in apartments.

Greek Life: It's great because Greek life does not exist at BYU. It is an achievement-based system more where those who work the hardest get the most reward.

Athletics: The athletic scene is great for those who are interested. I'm not into sports, so I do not attend them.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am able to study in many different areas and even had the opportunity to study abroad with a lot of financial help. They have excellent opportunities for humanities students to get involved in other areas, especially business, and come out with skills they would not have learned otherwise. I would choose BYU again for the undergraduate experience, but I do not plan to do graduate school here because it is very undergraduate-heavy in their programs.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many resources that the faculty is teaching its students to prepare and receive jobs and internships. They work with hundreds of companies to do online internships so that all may receive some experience so that they may grow. The career counselors are dependable, certainly if one does their part as well.

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus, but I have heard that it is pricey

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The BYU blue spirit is amazing! I have been able to see a couple BYU Men's Volleyball games this past semester and I would definitely agree that we have one of the best teams in the country, and that we have the best cheering section in the nation. There are generations of cougars that are there to cheer; whether that be at volleyball, football, soccer, swimming or even tennis.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have loved the atmosphere thanks to the Honor Code. Many give a bad rap to the honor code for being too restrictive, but for me, it has given me the biggest security ever that I can trust others and always know that the standards will not change, and are preparing me to be a solid, secure member to society, being willing to follow rules, laws, etc. I love the attitude here, generally, there is an attitude of kindness. The professors love to teach and I am sure that if I were able to be more organized and dedicated, I would have an even better time. I would definitely go to this school again and would recommend it to other, whether of the LDS faith or not.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I realize that BYU has been on the news recently for safety, but I have never had a problem. I have never experienced campus crime or sexual assault personally, and none of my friends have ever told me of experiencing sexual assault or campus crime.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have lived on campus for a year now, and I have enjoyed living there. The rooms have lots of space, and the community is very welcoming. I had a full kitchen with a fridge, stove, and microwave, which was really nice.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are a big part of campus life, but because I enjoy the arts more, I tend to go to the concerts on campus rather than the sports events. However, the school spirit is contagious, and everyone will find an excuse to wear our school colors.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are so many opportunities to do awesome stuff with your major while in school! I can do actual projects that I normally would not be able to do until after Ive graduated, but instead I'm receiving real, professional experience. I love going to this University!

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It needs to improve its athletic teams to a very much higher level.

5 College Student

Athletics: BYU has a huge fan base and the school spirit and energy at sport events is always very large.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I love BYU! It has so many wonderful students and helpful faculty members that have contributed to my wonderful BYU experience. There is so much school spirit, especially at sporting events. It's a great, wholesome atmosphere centered around education and service.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security on campus is great. The university has it's own police department, and the officers are approachable and friendly. They can be seen walking or biking around campus, making sure everything is safe. There are special emergency phones all over campus to use if one needs assistance, has an emergency, or simply feels insecure and would like a companion to walk home with.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are plenty of class choices, and lots of sections in the popular classes, so most of the time, you can get into all the classes you want and need. The GE classes tend to be large, but that is inevitable. I think if students really want to get to know the teacher, really care about it, class size is irrelevant. The professors are very open and enjoy having students visit during office hours. They are very willing to help with assignments, talk about grades and most are open to second chances.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in on-campus housing was fun. The dorms I lived in are apartment-style rooms. They are very spacious, close to main campus and provide plenty of opportunities for socialization. They are a bit expensive, but because new freshmen are required to live on-campus, there are not many options.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I personally am not a huge fan of sports, so all I know about athletics at my school is what other people have told me. Everyone who attends the games and events come away pleased, so I would say if youlike sports and athletics, this school has good programs.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school because of all the opportunities it provides. Attending this school had led me to new friends, new education and new exploration opportunities. The teachers and professors are engaging and eager to help students learn. If I had to choose my college again, I would choose this university in a heartbeat.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many different on campus systems that are there for students. There's even a police station on campus, with police that ride their bikes around to catch people breaking the rules and riding their bikes in between classes. I don't think it's a huge problem, but I could also be oblivious.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the important classes are big because a lot of students are required to take them, but the others are pretty decent sized with about 20 students. There are a lot of different courses that are offered, such as STAC (student activity) classes. There are some unique ideas with a lot of variety for students to mix up their schedules. It is difficult to get into your most desired classes, though. It's always a competition.

The professors are very knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects and they seem all knowing in their subjects. They use their TA's to help students excel.

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.
