I have not yet been involved with an internship, however I have attended a number of seminars on Social Work which have helped me understand what it takes to be part of the internship program at BYU. I have to complete my prerequisites and then while applying to the program at school they will help me to look and get a well paying internship.

The campus simply can't be compared with any other. The students are--for the most part--very friendly and full of love. The teachers and staff are also ready to help anyone who they can and through their TAs are able to help so many students in need. During each semester there are so many events and seminars which help students who are looking for further knowledge on any subject they plan on perusing. Also the athletic facilities are awesome! Perfect for anyone who wants to play hard with their friends or just hang-out.

Fun to study, careers are somewhat limited

All I know about the financial aid process at BYU is what I read in my E-mail once a semester, "You've been denied another scholarship" or something along those lines. However, it should be noted that BYU's tuition is considerably lower than other schools of it's caliber because it is subsidized by the donations of LDS church members throughout the world and I can be nothing but grateful for that.

I think BYU is known widely throughout the United States for being an institution and campus made up of people who are all the same. Everybody is Mormon. Just about everybody is white. And just about everybody comes from the stereotypical well-to-do, politically conservative Mormon family. Of course, with any generalizations, there are exceptions but BYU fits it's mold pretty well.

I think BYU stands apart from other schools because of the culture and opportunities that come along with being a church sponsored school. Because nearly all of the student body is made up of LDS members, we are offered some unique experiences. For example, many campus buildings double as locations for weekly church services. Additionally, because of the church's widespread global presence and networking within the faith, we frequently get to hear from or are visited by notable members of the church who stand out in their professional field or the academic programs that students are interested in.

I don't know how very many students could give an adequate grade to their university's campus life unless they are all transfer students. I've only ever been a student at BYU so I don't know how it compares to others, but I think it is great. I enjoy walking through campus and as far as I'm concerned, it has everything that a college student could ask for (except caffeine I guess, but that's another story). Overall, I don't know how I could give BYU anything other than an A.

BYU doesnt have it's own system. The Utah Transit thought is state wide and very accessible. Considering you have to live within two miles of campus, transportation is not a big issue. BYU offers a student discount for a UTA bus pass, but It's still pricy, especially when you take a look at the deal UVU has with UTA.
College Junior 2013-10-02T17:24:34Z
It's BYU, a mormon school. That being said, of course people are doing drugs, but no where near the amount of other schools. And it's kept very much more low key.
College Sophomore 2013-09-30T19:26:48Z
It is a very hard program, but very rewarding.

I'm a English Major and I've loved all my classes that I've taken. I've taken the first three for my major and the professors have all been very good and always willing to help students with questions they may have. Being an English major, there is always plenty of reading to do, and depending on the professor there could be a couple of papers. Most of the time they only have you two huge papers and smaller ones throughout the semester. The advisement center is also a really great resource.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe at BYU. One of the things that I really like about BYU with safety is that if you're ever anywhere on campus and it's dark out, you can call the BYU police and they will send an officer over to walk you back to your apartment or wherever you need to go. Also you just need to keep your doors locked. Even though it's relatively safe, people can sometimes take advantage of that and steal things.
College Sophomore 2013-09-27T19:41:23Z
Sports are really big at BYU. School spirit is really big especially at football and basketball games. Our head coach of football also recently told BYU that the student section helps give our team a big home field advantage. Football and Basketball are the biggest sports on campus, but Women's Soccer and Men's Volleyball are also very well attended events.

Guys & Girls:
People on campus are all really cool. You'll see like every type of person on campus. The only thing I'm not a fan of is that everyone always seems to be in a crazy hurry and a lot of people have headphones in, so it's almost impossible to make new friends just walking to class. In class everyone's usually great about making friends, but in between classes? Forget about it.
College Junior 2013-09-25T23:56:12Z
The bus system works really well actually. I'm living within walking distance this year, but freshman year I would take the bus every day and it passed right in front of my apartment and would get to campus on time so I was never late. The only reason it's not perfect is that during the winter everyone rides it and it gets really really crowded.

You will probably never see drug usage - it will get you kicked out of school if you are caught, and people will tattle. The surrounding area contains a lot of people who might be more into the drug scene than BYU students, and there are places to find drugs if you go looking for them, but you ought to be safe overall.

The weather is bipolar. It's like that little girl - when it's good, it's very, very good, but when the weather is bad it's horrid.
Actually, it snows a decent amount, and it's really just because of all the people from California and Arizona and Vegas who aren't used to it.

Sports Are Great – School Spirit is huge. Everyone knows the Cougar Fight Song. The campus gym is a bit small, but they have Yoga, Pilates, Meditation, Zumba and Swimming classes, among other things. Football is big, and the biggest part is the rivalry between BYU and U of U.
College Freshman 2013-09-24T22:11:03Z
There is no drugs on campus. Its against the honor code and drugs are not permitted at this school.
College Freshman 2013-09-24T22:10:13Z
There is a cafeteria area inside one of the central buildings that offers a variety of food options ranging from fast food to healthier foods such as subway. There is also a dining center for students that have a meal plan which offers all you can eat for up to three times a day. Also around campus are stores that serve as mini grocery stores and provide fresh burgers and ice cream at your convenience. I would say that the best place to eat on campus is the Chick-fil-A in the cafeteria area. They have the best fries ever.
College Freshman 2013-09-23T19:43:11Z
There are no drugs or alcohol at BYU. It is against the Honor Code that you sign upon being accepted to the college. Because of the Honor Code there is no drug or alcohol paraphernalia on campus or in campus housing.
College Freshman 2013-09-23T14:18:27Z
There is little to no drug use and alcohol use because it is against the honor code to consume these products.

From everything to the incredible rescrictive dress code to the curfew, the campus strictness here boarders on unbearable. Even though it is a religious instituion, I feel that sometimes the students are treated as children instead of adults. I think that there is far too much focus on the "letter" of the rules/honor code than the spirit of it. The diciplinary actions here seem to be very subjective and unjustly harsh. I have heard of students getting suspended and even expelled for things like going on a camping trip with the opposite sex (when boys slept in one tent and girls spent in another, seperate tent).
College Senior 2013-09-14T03:26:04Z
The majority of students on campus are of the same religion (LDS) since this is a religious institution. There are, however, a rare few who attend that are not of the LDS faith. Also, the majority of students on campus are caucausian.

Generally parking is a nightmare near the south and west side of campus! If you don't mind walking a little further you can always park in the Lavell Edwards parking area (there's always spaces open there)
Sorry, there are no reviews.
