4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: very few people drink or do drugs. great study abroad. generally nice and loving atmosphere

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Walking around the campus day or night is safe for almost anybody. The campus police are always driving by the school and ensuring our safety. There is very little crime or theft happening throughout campus or its apartments due to the honor code which students abide by. Police are always quick t respond when they are called upon

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Student life is excellent and one of the most united due to the LDS church having influence throughout the campus and its teachings.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Aside from being the most sober school in america, it is also full of opportunities to advance as a person as well as your career. The LDS church has a great influence in the way the Honor Code is instilled in the heart of the school. The school also helps to mold men and women to aspire to great and new heights.

Scholarships: If your grades are good enough, you can keep full tuition scholarship. I do well on tests, so that worked for me. Others in more difficult programs like who have to take Organic Chemistry or upper level math classes have a more difficult time getting the GPA scholarship. There are other scholarships available. Also tuition is subsidized by the church so tuition is so much cheaper than at other universities.

Campus Food: I didn't really eat in the dining halls, but shopped at the Creamery. It was pretty small, but it provided the variety of groceries I needed. I really didn't eat out much.

Diversity: There isn't a ton of diversity here. There are a lot of Caucasians, and mostly Mormon/members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have found everyone is accepting of those of other race/ethnicity when they do happen to come in contact with them, as well as socio-economic status. Most people are Republican, and some Democrats get a hard time. With regards to sexual orientation, as a church we are not pro-same gender marriage, but overall people are accepting of those who come out.

Campus Housing: I only lived in on campus housing freshman year. It was fun and social, the buildings were a little old but they've redone them since I moved out. The cost wasn't too bad. It was a little stressful making sure I had a spot.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I love the religious atmosphere, helped by students as well as teachers. It's not just about getting the grades, it's about lifelong learning. I also loved being in Women's Chorus - the sense of sisterhood in there is full of love as we work to make beautiful music.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I would totally do it again. In fact, I'm going to grad school here in the same field of study! I want to be a health coach or work in corporate wellness.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: All I had to do was talk to the adviser and they changed my major in the computer.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I feel like I learn a lot in my classes as long as I apply myself. Professors are often researching and performing studies so I don't feel behind the times.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I love my major. It is all about being healthy as an individual and having that kind of lifestyle. Everyone in Exercise and Wellness seems to be friendly, and professors care about us and our lives.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: I love the BYU fan culture, it's super fun. I also like lawns on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: I love that there is the religious connection. So many people here are LDS/Mormon, so we all connect super well.

5 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Most people here are very friendly, and very focused not only on school but on progressing as an individual. I also like the focus on spirituality/religiosity.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: Live the campus! New buildings and renovations are constantly being built. It's so nice

4 College Student

Campus Quality: Again, because it's a private religious school there isn't much partying, but more wholesome activities among students. It's fun to get to know everyone without them all being drunk.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Living on campus in Heritage Halls has been an excellent experience. The buildings themselves are brand new and thus very clean, nice, updated, etc. I absolutely adore all the students there. Everyone is so kind and willing to help fellow students. There is a strong comrodere and fantastic community. While it is quite expensive to live here, it's worth it! I love having my own kitchen and large living room and dining room to spend time with friends and roommates.

2 College Student

Diversity: Because BYU is a private religious school, there is a great lack of diversity regarding religion, sexual orientation and general beliefs. BYU does, however, make an effort to vary race and ethnicity and provide an accepting atmosphere in that regard.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Campus is well kept. As such, it's easy to want to be outside when the weather is good. The atmosphere is good and welcoming. It's easy to meet new people in the library and the Wilk because they are almost central points that most people go through or to.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Because this school is run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it has a great and welcoming atmosphere. Many classes begin with a prayer and gospel topics are introduced into most classes. In addition, the academics are top-notch. It's easy to tell how invested they teachers are in our learning.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: There is wide variety of food on campus. Since they got Chic-fil-a, things have greatly improved too. I don't eat on campus often, but I'm not disappointed when I do.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletics are great! There are discounted ticket options for students so it's easy to support our teams. School spirit is readily available and athletic facilities are maintained well.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Campus itself is pretty safe. However, people are too trusting and can be easy targets by running or walking alone late at night.

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.
