Greeks Wait What? As uncertain as I am about what 'Greek life' is supposed to mean is how much there is at BYU. I know basically nothing - there is, so far as I know, basically none.

The campus is gorgeous. The staff works hard to keep it green and well-kept, and there are always flowers except during snowy winter. There is so much space, but all of it is well-used, whether in grass or trees, bushes or flowers, benches or artful decorations. Even in the winter, campus is incredibly pretty, though the walkways do get icy. In such a well-kept environment, it makes a student proud to be at BYU.

There are a lot of off campus places to eat nearby. Unfortunately most of them are fast food places.

English Language Majors – It's very interesting to be an English Language Major because we juggle between English and Linguistics, both other majors at BYU that we have a lot of interaction with. Most people in this major have the same minor, though we have a large variety of career goals in mind.

This school is obviously unique because the majority of students are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Students are required to dress modestly and keep modest appearance in hair styles as well. Everyone is pretty friendly and there's a lot of pride about sports. The ASB tries extremely hard to have campus activities and there's always something going on. There are tons of clubs and it's very social. Academically rigorous, but the teachers are also the kindest and most forgiving. There's always construction going on and they're very competitive. You usually have to have a 3.5 or above high school or transfer GPA. It's definitely an impressive educational institution. They strive for excellence in everything and students have tons of opportunities in any field and with internships, etc.

Guys & Girls:
Clean Cut – Most of the population is young and fit and clean cut, so the girls all look healthy and the guys are all required to be clean shaven. There tends to be a lot of concern with looking good since everyone is looking for a spouse 24-7.

It's Very Versatile! If you stay for the summer, it gets really hot, but it's a dry hot. The winter months are full of snow and very cold days. Bring an umbrella, snow boots, a warm coat, a windshield scraper, a light jacket, and flip flops. The weather is all over the place and it changes quickly and often.

Not as Nice as on-Campus – Off-campus isn't as nice as on-campus housing, and it's more expensive. But it's worth living off-campus to be away from the freshmen. On-campus housing really caters to a freshmen audience.

Mono-Personality Social Life – My only complaint is the social life. It's a little limited. BYU sometimes has a problem of accepting the same kind of person- it's extremely homogeneous. A lot of people try their very best to fit in and refrain from breaking any social norm.

Your Worst Nightmare – Parking at BYU is a huge hassle. Parking spaces available for students are limited, far from classes, and usually all full before 8 AM. If you park where you shouldn't, you're guaranteed to get at least a $20 ticket, usually more, which is hard for starving students. The campus is big so a car can be helpful...if you can park it.

BYU does not have any Greek Life. It is a private school and has chosen not to for its own reasons.

Attracts a Certain Kind of Person – BYU is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church). As such, many of the students are members of that church. Surprisingly, the next highest denomination here is Muslim because they share many of the same standards as the LDS. There are people from countries all over the world, but most students are white Americans with very similar values and worldviews.

School Uniqueness – I love attending BYU because it is a predominately LDS campus. Going to school with students who have the same standards and religious beliefs as me is such a comfort. I love that BYU is such a fun school, but people are having fun in positive ways and not by drinking.

Student Center – The food court needs a bigger selection. Healthy food is hard to find and the quality of the other food is not very high. As a student I would like to see more quality healthy food that I could grab in a hurry.

Printing on Campus – It is difficult to find a quick place to print on campus. Usually you have to wait in long lines. And a lot of the time there is a problem and the printers aren't working.

There are lots of opportunities of transportation. If you choose to drive, plan on an hour to find a parking spot. Too many cars for not enough spots.

Events Galore – Most of the time it is easy to find something to do on a Friday night. Between shows, local sports, and museums there is always an activity in the community going on.

Sports Are Awesome – Varsity sports at BYU are great. We have great teams who are usually ranked nationally. I also know that each one has great fan support.

Keeping It Clean – The area is clean. Most "parties" involve food and dancing. You'll be hard-pressed to find alcohol around here and we like it that way.

Decent Options, Not Too Thrilling – The Cougareat has some pretty good options. I usually prefer to eat at home, though.

Health & Safety:
A Safe Environment – We have a very safe and healthy environment. Campus police do a good job of stopping campus crime. There are services such as the "safe walk" that allow students to stay safe on campus even at night.

BYU offers plenty of amazing programs and low costs. Study abroad is cheap and scholarships are often awarded.

Buses Are Best Option – public transportation is very convenient as it comes about every 15 minutes and the cost is low. There are several bus stops through out town.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
