4 College Freshman

Academics: My major, European Studies, has just recently re-opened, so the program is small, but this allows for multiple opportunities for those few students in the major.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are many majors and programs offered at BYU with wonderful professors, a large library with many study options and advisors, and many student employment and internship options available.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: BYU offers a discounted UTA pass and has pick-up locations on and near campus. Most housing is in walking distance of campus, and the university allows students to drive their own vehicles as well, with decent parking available.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People have my same standards so campus is safe and you don't have to worry nearly as much about your safety or quality of the teachers and the teaching

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing amazing but not awful

5 College Freshman

Administration: Again, BYU, It's a private school and they will inforce their honor code.

5 College Freshman

Academics: It's the best, but expect to spend the time to get the best

3 College Freshman

Academics: In general very good teachers and good courses.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's Utah. Lots of things to do, just expect to remember it and not get drunk.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You drink or do drugs you get kicked out, that simple.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's pretty average, if you want nicer housing off-campus you will need to pay more. But it is still very possible to find an average and acceptable place for a decent price

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The on-campus housing has some older buildings, and some brand new buildings with a lot of nice touches.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: No one drinks, does drugs, or even thinks about them. Awesome, clean place.

4 College Junior

Administration: The Honor Code office works hard to make sure everyone follows what they signed on to be admitted to the school. It keeps it a great place to live/work/study.

3 College Junior

Parking: Do not park in a spot that is reserved for a specific group. The police is just out to get you. You will regularly pay a fine.

4 College Junior

Academics: Some of the professors are annoying, but you get that at any school. It is generally easy to get into the classroom of a good professor.

5 College Junior

Academics: There are plenty of research opportunities, and they really push to get you into a good internship as well.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Good, clean fun all around. Teachers in the specific program classes are really awesome.

4 College Junior

Technology: Some of the buildings on campus have dead spots for wi-fi, which gets annoying. Otherwise, for the most part, you can get a connection.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very helpful and nice. Most everyone loves to have a clean, good time!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Get it done early! Even if the deadline isn't until March, do it early so you won't rush the process. If you have contact information for any departmental scholarships, go meet them in person or at least email them. They are so willing to help you sort through information that you shouldn't include in the essay, or help you figure out what's missing. They'll help you know your chances of winning the scholarship, and anything else you might want to know. If it's general university scholarships you're trying for, still go ahead and talk to someone. It's so worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: For the most part, I feel fairly safe on campus. There is some theft, as in all larger cities, but for the most part the people on campus are fairly honest and will turn in lost or forgotten items to the Lost and Found. And as a girl, you always have to be cautious when walking alone at night, but the pathways are very well lit, with call boxes placed frequently along them. And, if you are feeling especially nervous, for whatever reason, you can call campus police and they will happily escort you home.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: We have an Honor Code that the school takes very seriously. There are no drugs or alcohol on campus, and everyone is very happy about that. If they are used on campus or in campus-approved housing, the student can get suspended or expelled depending on the severity of the honor code violation.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On-campus housing, with one exception, is very close to classes and the library and the student center. There's a very social atmosphere, and you get to know those in your building very well. Though the cost varies, you tend to get the most bang for your buck.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school, from everything to the atmosphere to the classes offered. And there are so many opportunities to branch our and try new things - clubs and campus-wide activities. We celebrate the Chinese New Year and there are culture nights, and there are always opportunities to find out about comedy shows and sports clubs. And because of the Honor Code, you don't have to deal with drunks in class or anything like that.

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.
