Multiple options available and open whenever the campus is open. Vending machines located everywhere.

The housing is good quality for dorm rooms. Cinder block walls are never appealing, but they make it affordable and really close and are always helpful.

Buses run every ten minutes or so and pick up and drop off from multiple locations around campus.

Athletics are a huge part of student life. And the sports teams are ranked pretty consistently.

The library is the best place to study. It is quiet and has a good environment.

Guys & Girls:
All of the students are focused on their education, they are all motivated and very driven to do well.

I'm in the BYU psychology program, with an emphasis in Neuropsychology. All of the professors are very interested in your progress, and they all focus on our learning. I really enjoy everything about this program.

There are so few people from diverse cultures at BYU. It's kind of ridiculous how rare it is to see people from minority cultures. It also promotes a culture of ignorance amongst the rest of us because we don't interact with a diverse group of individuals while attending BYU.

Getting into the accounting program at BYU is tough. You have to take a lot of prerequisite courses. Your GPA used for getting into the program is one third your prerequisite scores, one third your last 30 credit hours, and one third your overall college GPA. It also requires a 500 word essay. Entry is very competitive and not everyone who applies gets in.

Everyone in the accounting program is required to have a laptop. Therefore, there isn't much in the way of computer labs. Printing on campus is pretty straight forward, but it might take some help to get it set up the first time. The internet is usually good, but there are times when it is spotty. I've had some troubles with the network and windows 8.

There is a lot of housing available. However, the housing options are almost all incredibly old and run down. In general, it's pretty ghetto. There are a few nicer places but they are far more expensive. It's really easy to find somewhere to live though.

I love BYU athletics. Watching basketball and soccer are definitely my favorite. I really like that the fans are generally very courteous and the school spirit is great!

I'm an accounting major and I have not had an internship yet. I'm only a sophomore and most of the internships are meant for the summer between your junior and senior year. I fully intend to do an internship next summer though. I think they are definitely a must to be able to find a good job out of school.

I'm doing accounting and I love it. It is very rigorous at BYU, but it teaches me so much and I feel like I get a lot of real world experience. Every professor I've had thus far has had extensive experience with one of the big 4 accounting firms. The big 4 actively recruit from BYU and all of them even showed up to give free stuff away at an information session for students in the very beginning accounting class.

Health & Safety:
Not a lot of things happen on campus. The security workers are all really nice and I can't think of anything horrible happening, but the campus police can be a bit silly in what they find to be unacceptable.

Great fan support and school spirit!!! However the actual sports teams aren't the best. Except the rugby team. WOOT WOOT.
College Senior 2013-04-26T02:51:38Z
The campus is beautiful. Library is very nice. The athletic center is very nice, the weight room is somewhat tiny but doable.
College Senior 2013-04-26T02:50:24Z
Love it! It's hard but helps you realize you can do anything!
College Senior 2013-04-26T02:46:58Z
The network is very slow in the business school. Printing is usually good and there is usually an empty computer in the computer lab.
College Senior 2013-04-26T02:41:16Z
There are so many opportunities for internships in this program. Last summer I had one, learned a lot, great experience. It paid well and paid for my housing. It was just a regular 40 hour job.
College Senior 2013-04-26T02:38:34Z
I had a hard time deciding on doing Accounting. The program is very intimidating. But it is such a great program, I would definitely do it again. It's SO hard, but I learned so much and made great friends.
College Senior 2013-04-24T16:07:11Z
Theres a lot to do here and at BYU there's plenty of traditions. The BYUSA puts on light up the Y on the mountain every fall and there's a blue foam party that goes on as well. The campus is very beautiful aside from that. However the biggest issue is this isn't really a hang out school and more people are interested in studying.
College Junior 2013-04-22T22:15:44Z
I am in a specialized major, Geographic Information Systems. The teachers have all had experience in the fields and they have personal stories which can help us. They do a great job in placing students in internships and the workload is not too severe. They have a great computer lab which makes work on projects easy, quick, and fun.

BYU is home to many different programs which are built to help you succeed in not only your career, but in your life. By taking the focus off your grades, and more into the joy of developing your own personal skills and attributes, you become more prepared for the job market and the rest of your life. The grades you receive usually coincide with the effort you put into your classes. The professors are fair and work with you. They have a great job placement program as well.
College Sophomore 2013-04-18T21:39:00Z
The various programs throughout the school are very well supported. All of the professors in the various areas are genuinely interested in educating the students and they want to help them in any way possible. The workloads can be a little heavy but they are not unbearable. Outside resources are very readily available.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
