What drug scene? What alcohol? It really is almost non-existent. I say almost because there are rumors of some people using pot, but you'd really have to look hard to find them. Everyone at BYU signs an honor code saying that they won't drink, smoke, or use drugs. If someone does, they are kicked out. While some might think this is harsh, I support this. The environment at BYU is great! I wouldn't have it any other way.

BYU just built brand new freshmen dorms right next to campus and they're really nice! They're a 5 min walk to the heart of campus and right next to the BYU Creamery. Ice cream, school, great social life... what more could you ask for?

I received enough financial aid and the process went smoothly. The government's side was a bit slow, but then again it is a government bureaucracy. Scholarships are harder to keep here since the classes are hard, but tuition is low enough that it's not the end of the world. Overall, A+!

There are plenty of minority students at BYU, but the majority are white and LDS, so most tend to be politically conservative.
College Junior 2013-07-08T03:05:45Z
The food itself on campus is pretty good, but a little pricey. The "cafeteria" food in the dorms is good, but gets old fast once you realize it is on the same 2-week rotation.

There are so many different options for off-campus student housing, for all budgets. The nicer the place and the closer to campus it is, the more expensive it will be. However, the cost of living is comparatively very low in Provo, and it is not too difficult to find housing that suites your lifestyle.
College Junior 2013-07-08T02:55:41Z
Provo is close to everything, and has everything in it. It is a large college town, so there is plenty to do. There is also a variety of restaurants and shopping within 5-10 minutes from campus. It is also very easy to get outside the college scene, with Salt Lake just an hour away.

Their are multiple computer labs and printing stations and BYU. They are usually crowded in the mornings and right before class starts, but teachers usually understand a possible delay to class. The WiFi is sometimes unreliable--depending on which building you're in. Overall, if you own your own computer and a printer, you're alright!

Health & Safety:
Being that BYU is an LDS (Mormon) school, and it's community is predominantly LDS, campus and the surrounding town feel safe and secure for the most part. There are some areas on campus that could use better lighting, but the University Police has a strong presence on campus, and I usually see a police car/officer almost everyday when I'm on or around campus.

BYU is consistently ranked #1 in being a stone cold sober school, meaning there is little to no alcohol on campus. This being said, the same goes for drugs and other illegal substances. It is an LDS (Mormon) school, so many of the students/faculty/community are very religious and abide by their church's standings on alcohol and drugs.

If you want the "college experience" this is not the school for it. A lot of the activities revolve around the LDS faith and there really isn't anything to do in the town itself.
College Junior 2013-07-03T16:39:37Z
I think that since most of the student life revolves around the religion it's harder for those not of the LDS faith to find something to do. A lot of people go to football and basketball games and hang out off-campus. The school doesn't organize a lot of activities unless it has to do with freshman orientation.

Computer labs do not accommodate the student body well at all (you need a campus computer to print on campus) and the machines don't run as fast as you need, especially if you're in a class that uses a large program.

BYU is a pretty old school and you can see it in the buildings. Some are slightly renovated and there is a new life sciences building being built (finishes in 2014 I believe). The student center is the most modern. The laboratories are decent though they could use a makeover.

Cold and Snowy – It's cold for most of the year and dry. Not a lot of snow yet, but when it comes it stays. Be careful when it ices over. Campus is a slippery mess and don't think that they do a good job salting the ice.

The Wilk has an excellent food court, and it's pretty affordable. The dining halls have pretty slightly above average food for a dining hall; however it doesn't come cheap.
College Sophomore 2013-07-01T19:18:06Z
We've got a wide variety of restaurants around the campus. The businesses where smart to locate themselves nearby. On all sides of the campus you can find some sort of restaurants from fast food, buffets, to higher end restaurants. It allows a dining experience for almost any situation.
College Sophomore 2013-07-01T19:16:18Z
The social life is very good. I felt included by others. The cafeteria food had a good variety. We had a lot of activities and clubs to help us stay involved. I highly enjoyed the campus housing.
College Sophomore 2013-07-01T19:14:38Z
We're a Mormon school so the majority of the students are. There are few people of other races. The majority are white. Other than that I feel like the students are very accepting of the diverse cultures. Sometimes there can be cliches, but that's normal. I don't see hardly any racism at the school.
College Sophomore 2013-07-01T19:11:40Z
The Honor Code is strict, but in a good way. I'm glad that we've got it because everyone has the same standards and it makes the school have a better atmosphere.
College Sophomore 2013-06-27T17:14:06Z
Well, this is a mormon school so the nightlife is... PG. Fun but usually more FHE and ward parties than anything student organized.

I haven't completed the application process yet, so I am not sure.
College Sophomore 2013-06-27T17:06:16Z
I haven't had an internship yet, but I will definitely be applying when I can. Classes are great but nothing prepares you for actual work the way actually working does. Internships are invaluable, even if you don't get paid.
College Sophomore 2013-06-27T02:04:44Z
Assuming i get into the animation major, there are some seriously great internship opportunities with companies like pixar and dreamworks. But seeing as the major itself is really competitive, I'll just have to wait and see!
College Sophomore 2013-06-26T18:28:55Z
BYU has so many majors to choose from and they will all train you extremely well for what you want to do with your life after college.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
