Majors: I majored in Exercise Science. It is perfect for those on the pre-med track. During my time there, this program was perfect for me. It aligned with my goals and provided interesting and useful coursework. Because my interests have since changed, however, I would do a different major if I could do it all over again. I no longer want to go to medical school and would choose a more technical major that could get me a quality job right out of college.

Majors: Exercise Science requires no formal application process. You simply register in the program and you're in!

Administration: To attend Brigham Young University you must sign and Honor Code. The policies covered in the Code are definitely enforced. The Honor Code is one of my favorite things about BYU. The Code aligned perfectly with the way I already conducted my life and made it easier for me to be who I was around fellow students.

4 College Junior

Weather: There are all four seasons and it's great. Snowboarding, golfing, boating are all close by.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: You get what you pay for and they don't charge much if you want really nice housing you have to act fast and it will cost more but compared to the rest of the country it's not bad at all.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is no drinking or smoking on campus and we like it that way. You will be hard pressed to find it anywhere on school grounds.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: BYU is very competitive to get into and consequently has a very desirable academic and social scene. You will never find a school quite like it anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I love the housing around BYU it is very friendly. landlords do tend to give you the short end of the stick and you are most likely going to live in older housing because there isn't much else.

4 College Junior

Technology: I love having my laptop, there aren't very many labs but they are available when you need them. I've never had a problem with computers here.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are no fraternities or sororities. We don't give preference to Greeks more than any other culture. I'm sure there is some foreign student housing for them like any other culture.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat out, so I'm not the best person to ask but on the rare occasion I do, I can typically walk to the restaurant of my choice.

5 College Junior

Athletics: BYU, BYU, BYU!!!!!! Sports and recreation is a popular way to take a break from studies.

3 College Junior

Transportation: There is plenty of student housing close by so transportation isn't an issue. But if you happened to live far away it would be.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The values I hold for society are supported by much of the student body while still trying to accept but not accommodate to the minority. This does not apply to ethnicity or race as about 1/2 to 3/4 of the students speak more than one language fluently.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: If you're looking to hardcore party BYU isn't for you.

5 College Junior

Administration: I am fine with how strictness of the school because I understand the principle they are trying to instill in the students creating a safe and friendly environment for all.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: They are very efficient at keeping the student body feeling safe. Even the smallest problems are resolved quickly. for example there was recently a man who was groping random women on campus. An email was sent out to all the students and the police tracked him down and sent him to jail.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a typical stereotype about those of the Mormon faith, and for the most part it holds true. The honor code is great aside from not being able to have a beard its awesome.

Parking: There aren't enough parking spots allocated to students

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The psych department is great, super helpful for the most part, although the PSYCH 101 class everyone's required to take is kind of a waste of time in my opinion. But other than that, the major has a lot of options and is designed to help you get into grad school.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Not as cold as I thought it would be. Winter semester was very manageable coming from a warm-weather climate.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of affordable off-campus options close to campus.

1 College Sophomore

Administration: The visitation rules for the dorms are ridiculous.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is virtually no drug use at BYU.

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.
