4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There's a great commuter rail system that runs between school and home, to make it very easy to travel anywhere I need to go.

Campus Quality: There are many activities for students to participate in, many places for students to hang out, and a lot of fun planned activities.

Campus Quality: Some of the buildings are very new and state-of-the-art, others are old and in need of renovation or replacement.

Administration: The school enforces the honor code, which all the students signed upon being accepted, and they're very strict about it, but it makes for a very great campus atmosphere!

Health & Safety: I am really not scared at all on campus. It seems very safe and most people are very pleasant.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Provo is essentially a college town, so there is not too much around. It is in "Happy Valley," so it is rare for anything "bad" to happen.

The attractions are the ski resorts in the winter time and 7 Peaks water park in the summer time.

Most of the sports related events are the BYU games. There is a train that goes from Provo to Salt Lake, so students can also see Utah Jazz games.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Violent crime is very low on campus. Drug and alcohol use is also very low, so drug related crime is also low. I feel very safe from violence.

Non-violent theft can be a problem. People in Utah in general and BYU specifically are more likely to be overly trusting, so thieves often have an opportunity to steal things easily without too much fear of getting caught. I keep my stuff secure and close to me, so I don't have much fear of my stuff getting stolen.

The most dangerous thing I have seen on campus is the sidewalks in the winter. The roads are usually clear of dangerous ice long before the sidewalks. The grassy areas are generally much safer than the sidewalks, but the college officials seem to care more about the safety of the grass than the safety of the students.

3 College Junior

Technology: There are several computer labs throughout campus. There are also printing kiosks in most buildings.

The school uses a system to allow printing to most of the printers on campus. One problem with the printers is that they eat money if you try to print the wrong size.

The wireless network is adequate in most parts of campus, but it flaky in the Jessee Knight Building and part of the Tanner Building.

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 ( 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.
