4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people are fairly attractive. BYU is a hipster school. Lots of hipster style. Colorful clothing is everywhere. You won't find a lot of facial hair because of the honor code at BYU. BYU is also very social. There are activities around campus every day.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is quite nice and sociable and attractive! Mormons are just naturally hotter :p There is a sense of snootiness and holier-than-thou attitude that really bothers me sometimes, so I just brush it off.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: BYU was recently rated in the top five colleges with the most attractive and intelligent AND kind students and that's incredibly accurate. The guys and girls at BYU are incredibly Christ-like and attractive. Dating is always a constant annoyance but I feel like that's the same for all emerging adults.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

BYU students are well known as being uncommonly friendly and inclusive. Although they may look intimidating at first, with their seemingly uniform blond hair and Abercrombie & Fitch clothing, the majority is surprisingly nice, and, if you look hard enough, you may even notice that not quite all of the students are from Utah. Cultural diversity on campus is not big in the common sense, but students are amazingly receptive and knowledgeable about other cultures, as most have lived abroad for anywhere from six months to two years (BYU has great study abroad programs that lots of students take advantage of).

Although most students seem to be cut from the same mold (white, Utah, LDS), this is not a bad thing, since the majority are very upstanding, ambitious, and just plain nice. Most people are outgoing, although the dorms can be a little cliquish. Student wards offer a lot of social interaction, so even if you can't seem to make eye contact with that cute boy in chemistry, there's a good chance that someone knows someone who is in his ward and could set you up with him. Dating is not uncommon at BYU, and some would even claim it gets out of hand (those returned missionaries looking desperately for their eternal companion). All in all, the student body at BYU is just plain amazing.

Social Scene
BYU is a very social campus. A lot of interaction occurs within the student wards or apartment complexes. Even in classes, people are very talkative. Don't be surprised if your first day in class involves at least one person asking about your major and your hometown. People are very outgoing, and dating is a high priority among students.
Hookups or Relationships?
Dating is one of BYU's campus pastimes. A lot of people get married while at BYU, although by no means is this group the majority. Campus Devotionals, given every Tuesday, always seem to mention and urge dating. Places on and around campus often offer discounts for Friday night dates. However, not everyone is serious; NCMOs, or non-committal makeouts, are a popular campus joke and occur more frequently than some students would like! As freshmen, students get very creative in their dating and tend to avoid serious relationships as most of the guys are getting ready to leave for two years.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
The majority of social interaction occurs off campus in student wards and apartment complexes. It seems that at the beginning of the school year, with the prospect of a new ward and new faces, most people are single, although there will be a huge wave of engagements at the end of semesters. By spring, the number of couples multiplies exponentially, and it seems that there is nowhere to go where handholding PDA couples can't be seen. Classes are a good place to meet people, although you do have to do a ring check, especially in upper-division classes-a lot of the good ones are already taken! At the beginning of each semester, each ward will do a ward directory; also known as "the ward menu." It is not uncommon for people to mark the guy or girl that they want to `accidentally' run into at the next ward function, so make sure to look good the first few Sundays of the semester!
Dress Code
The Honor Code includes a section on dress. The dress code is very strict and includes: no tank tops or sleeveless shirts, no shorts or skirts above the knee, no exposed midriffs, no funky hair colors (blue, green, and so on), no facial hair or long, shaggy hair on men, and no offensive clothing. Basically, BYU students are expected to look clean cut and well dressed.
