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.

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.

Its Good for Families, but This Is College – Students are always involved in sporting events and the school does a great job making tickets available its students. The teams perform well, but this is the mountain west, not the SEC. The competition is good, but i wish it was better. The fans do a great job supporting and there is a good amount of school spirit on campus, but only when the team is performing well. The facilities are good and they accommodate the athletes well.

A True Blessing – BYU is constantly renovating and building new buildings for its students to use and enjoy. The library is top notch and has 5 whole levels to study on. There is never a day where the library is too crowded. The science facilities are beautiful and always kept well. There is never any problems with bathrooms and there are paid student janitors who clean the buildings everyday. The student center is clean and there are always activities going on for younger students looking for on campus activities.

I really like Utah weather. It is really nice in the spring, summer and fall -- It's still 80 degrees outside and it's nearly October. Winter I love because I love snow. If you don't like snow or dealing with snow, then you probably won't like it here. But snow doesn't usually get in the way on campus, the grounds crew is really good about clearing the walkways.

Parking for students is extremely limited and entirely inconvenient. While in the spring, summer, and early part of fall walking isn't out of the realm of possibility, in the winter, walking is an absolute nightmare. Yet, parking is even worse. There are no restrictions as far as who can register their car to park in student parking, but there are no parking lots actually convenient for the students, despite several large parking lots and a parking garage for faculty on campus in a nice location. It just plain sucks, but if you don't want to feel trapped in Provo, a car is pretty much necessary.

Honor Code – BYU has an honor code that prohibits any drug/alcohol use on campus, any sex outside of marriage, any immodest dress (as defined in the honor code), any cheating or plagiarism, etc. This honor code is required of every student that attends BYU, even those that aren't Mormon (which is the religion affiliated with the campus.) Although these "rules" may seem strict and can get you kicked out of the school with just one offense, generally speaking the counselors will work with you before just kicking you out. So it is very strict (D-) but at the same time I think it is a good thing to have in place (B+)

Networking Is an Emphasis – I am a Business major at BYU and the program is phenomenal. The networking opportunities are unbeatable and the professors are very helpful. You have to be motivated, but if you are, this program enhances your desired career. Getting a job is made more of a convenient aspect of your education rather than a burden.

Guys & Girls:
GUYS AND GIRLS – Both are quite snootty. However, there are some who aren't that way and who are quite generous and humble.

Great Environment – The main difference is the campus life. It has a very high moral and ethical standard of living. The education opportunities are very good.

The weather is great. There is a variety of weather conditions. In the Winter it's cold with snow. Springs are pleasant and summer are hot and dry. The variety seems to please a variety of students

On Campus – The social environment is very good. The price and convince is not as good. Costs are generally higher on campus then off. Dorms are old and need remodeled B

I haven't seen any of it going on at BYU. That's not to say it's totally non-existent, but I could hardly imagine anything of the kind going on. I have full confidence it would be immediately reported an dealt with.

Pretty Good, but Too Slow – The Computer labs are pretty great, although sometimes the computers are a little slow. The printers are also sometimes very slow, and it can be difficult to enter my student id or swipe my card.

Housing Is Moderate – There are nice places to live and the prices are really cheap, but sometimes the landlords are SO strict.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
