Weather: The spring and fall are awesome. Summer gets a bit hot but warm is better than cold!

It's the long, cold winter that prevents BYU from getting a perfect score. There can be lots of snow and ice and cold. You can't bike, everyone and their dog tries to drive when it's cold so there is no parking. Lots of snow walking and rushing to get inside the building.

I guess it only gets in the 10's and 20's so it's not unbearable but it makes you long for the spring/summer.

Local Area: There are a lot of events all the time that are really interesting and a lot of fun. It totally depends on how social you want to be. If you want to be very social, there are events going on almost every night, but if you dont want to be social there is not much pressure to be. There is a free gym and recreation center on campus that is close to most off campus housing too.

Administration: This campus is very strict, but a lot of it is based on the honor code. If you get caught drinking or doing drugs or breaking the law of chastity then you can be kicked out of the school very quickly. This school trusts us a lot and because we initiated the honor code, it is important that we as students respect it and obey it.

Campus Housing: The on campus housing is better than the off campus housing in many ways. The on campus housing that includes kitchens are very recently built and they are very close to campus. There is a place where you can check out games and dishes, and many different things if you live on campus. The social atmosphere on campus is really great, and it is very nice to live so close to so many people with the same values.

Diversity: The majority of students at BYU are LDS because it is a religious school affiliated with the LDS church. There are also a lot of similar political beliefs, but they are most definitely not all the same. There is a wide range of different ethnicity groups that attend the school and the economic background can be very different as well.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of different options when it comes to off campus housing. There is also a housing guide that can be very helpful in finding off campus housing. The one thing to look out for is how much utilities will cost you on top of rent for wherever you choose to live. Also, often times a landlord can make or break the place you live. There are many options that are close to campus, but you can usually find better and cheaper housing the farther you get away from campus.

Majors: It's alright, but I just don't feel very connected to it. My advisor is wonderful and does have my best interest at heart. The quality of education is very good as well.

Diversity: Let's be real. It's largely white mormon kids. There are a lot of international students though, and a ton of students are fluent in foreign languages. It's not uncommon to hear to white boys speaking in Tagalog. It's pretty cool actually. There is diversity, but it's definitely less diverse than many other campuses.

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.
