Very Strict, but Necessary – There is an honor code, if you do not comply with the Honor Code you will be subject to disciplinary action. It is absolutely necessary.

Guys & Girls:
The people are wonderful, the most friendly I've ever met. And they have very noble interests, dress, the social life is very reserved and they maintain themselves focused on why they are at college

There are great places to eat, especially the Creamery on 9th, a grocery store as well as a great place to eat a quick hamburger or ice cream cone

There are no costs to students to receive a parking permit, but parking is horrid. Also, public transportation for those who do not have cars can be VERY expensive.

We Abide by the Honor Code – As part of admissions into BYU, you are to commit to the Honor Code. Smoking, drinking and drug use are NOT allowed to students and if caught, are grounds for expulsion. The Honor Code makes for a great learning and social environment where everyone can feel safe, happy and healthy.

Student Life – There are many opportunities to serve around campus, which I appreciate. There are plenty of free activities, like dances and the International Cinema. Sporting events are very popular, as well are the various comedy troupes: Divine Comedy and Humor U.

This is a very religious campus. Most of us are of the same denomination. We have weekly religious devotionals, most of which come from faculty. A lot of students attend. It is a private school owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Because of that, things trickle into almost all aspects of campus life. I love it.

If you like seasons, it's great. hot, mild, cold, mild, hot. That's the way it goes.

My Experience Might Be Diffrent – I lived in on-campus housing my freshman year, but it was a different set up- they changed married housing into dorm apartments. We were fairly far from campus and had to ride the bus. This made this housing cheaper than the other dorms and it was in really good shape compared to the others. Very tailored to freshmen and nice place to live.

Almost every building on campus can be considered beautiful. Very nice facilities and well kept grounds. Any of the facilities are open to the students. The Library is one of the best in the world. There are always students activities and help available for anything one would need.
College Senior 2010-10-14T23:41:40Z
Computer Space Is Good – There are many labs that any student can go to. There are usually open computers epically if you avoid the library and find a different building. There are also a few 10 min. computers that help for quick things that one might need. Most students have their own computer and WiFi so it is easy.

Apartments Are Old – Most apartments are old and not in the best shape, and the parking is terrible. There is never enough parking for residents and the Provo police make most of their revenue from parking tickets.

Lots of White Students – I think I looked it up before and BYU is almost 90% white. Out of 30,000 students only 400 aren't LDS. But it is an LDS private school so I'm not surprised.

Cannon Center – The Cannon Center is amazing. I miss it so much. It did seem repetitive but now that I'm living in and apartment and cooking for myself I would kill to have the variety of choices the cannon center offers.

Health & Safety:
Bored Policemen – This campus is so safe. I think the policemen here are bored so they have to come up with things to do, so they pull people over for riding their bikes to fast, or give people tickets for throwing a snowball, or for having a hammock.

School Is Awesome – School is awesome. The quality of the education is great, and the cost is just what a college should be, nothing ridiculous. Campus atmosphere is great, and I love being here. Go cougars!

Prices Are High – Prices are high in Provo. Especially south of campus. The neighborhood is ok in the south, and it is close to campus, but it is expensive. West of campus is better in my opinion, that is where I live, and it is cheaper too.

Personally, I don't know any Greeks? But I would assume that they would be treated as equal as every one, due to the fact that there are all sorts of nationalities attending our school, and everyone embraces everyone like a brother or sister.

Guys & Girls:
Guys and Gals – They students here at BYU are generally very friendly, and very social. There is a lot of good, wholesome activities going on all the time, and foster the perfect enviornment for dating and building friendships. Dress is modest, and casual normally. The students love to have fun and have millions of ideas that are spread around of great things to do.

The local atmosphere at Brigham Young University is one one where you can feel safe, encouraged, and accepted. It is friendly, free of cussing, drugs, or tobacco. The moral code is high.

Living on Campus – It's pretty nice to live in Wyview. Not a very social place to live, and it's a half hour walk to get to the main campus, but for the price, it's really nice living space. It's nice to only have to worry about 2 or 3 other roommates.
Recent Alumnus 2010-10-08T17:03:41Z
Off Campus – There are a good variety of places to eat off campus near school. they aren't very close, but they are very tasty. Zupas is pretty good, a little pricy. As is Olive Garden. Cafe Rio is pretty good too.

Not applicable. Everyone at BYU has signed the honor code, promising that drugs and alcohol will not be a part of their lives. It promises academic honesty as well.

The computers at BYU are extremely available and useful. There are open use computers in almost every single building on campus. Most have printers attached. There is wireless internet available across the entire campus. Bottom line, you need a computer, you've got one!

You Need a Car – You need to have a car if you want to have any kind of social life here in Provo. Gas and parking are fairly inexpensive. Walking to school is more convenient because parking during Fall and Winter terms is a pain. The bus is a good option if you don't have a car but not very convenient.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
