4 College Junior

Administration: The students agree to live an Honor Code in line with standards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am so glad they help enforce and encourage this because it helps me stay focused on my studies and not be distracted by drugs/alcohol etc. etc. On campus all bikes need to be registered, which is a bit of a hassle but a pretty easy process.

Administration: As BYU is a private religious school, naturally the rules are very strict, and enforced.

3 College Junior

Administration: Very strict on the honor code. living in dorms is inconvenient because you can't have the opposite gender over. however, there are many good attributes of the honor code (no alcohol, drugs, etc)

4 College Student

Administration: I feel this is completely based on who you're asking. Personally I like the strictness that BYU has and the standards it upholds. It's a perfect fit for me.

4 College Student

Administration: It is definitely strict, but it keeps us safe and I appreciate that.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Coming into BYU, you know should know what you are getting into. By signing your name to the Honor Code, you are saying that you will live by strict rules, and BYU will not let you forget it. The Honor Code Office is the biggest threat on campus, and no one wants to be called by them. Students will most definitely be kicked out of school for drug and alcohol offenses, as well as possibly suspended for things such as curfew violations and being found in the bedroom of someone of the opposite sex.

Cheating is never tolerated, and plagiarism is another offense that will not only get you in the Honor Code Office, but the dean's office as well. Students undoubtedly have fun, but they also play by the rules. Again, due to the Mormon culture, things such as cheating and lying are looked down on by peers and not tolerated by authority. If you are looking for a school where you can get away with things, be advised, this one is not for you.
