All the food is very delicious! They have so many different options all around campus from Subway, to italian food, to Taco Bell! If I didn't have time to go grocery shopping at my own apartment, I was always excited to eat on campus because the food was always delicious!

The campus police is really good at their jobs. If they catch you drinking, doing drugs, or having any sexual relations, you will get sent to the Honor Code Office and most likely get kicked out of the school. Almost 95% of the times you park in a parking spot that is for faculty or guests, they will know you are supposed to be in student parking, and you will get a parking citation. Dress code is very strict as well, and you know to always follow the honor code perfectly!

Varsity sports here are so much fun. The atmosphere is very sport oriented during football and basketball season. Our Women's soccer team did extremely well this year and had a pretty big following. Sporting events are a lot of fun. So are the intramural sports. Whether it basketball, water polo, kickball or softball the intramural sports are always popular.

BYU does not represent a lot of diversity ethnically. It is a primarily white university. However, there are many Polynesians that attend as well. BYU does a wonderful job of representing and celebrating different races. People here for the most part are very kind and accepting. The school is a Latter-day Saint run organization and therefore the majority of religious activity and belief is Mormon. You will run into people who are not as kind or accepting as others, but you will find those people at any university.

I would do my major over again in a heartbeat but would be much more involved with the extra activities that they always had going on. They just started pushing internships for English majors after I left, which I wished had happened earlier, but I was still able to find a job. The growth in knowledge and thinking ability from the program I felt was amazing.

The English major program at BYU is phenomenal. I studied English at Cambridge University, and while that was great, I loved the curriculum and professors at BYU. The have some outstanding faculty that all excel in their particular fields. Some are extremely famous poets, some are known for their exploratory research. The workload was stretching, but never dooming.

Many of the professors I had were top notch (I have studied at Cambridge University in England and loved the experience with the professors here at BYU a bit better). I feel like every department is constantly trying its best to be better, more engaging, and to leave students with the best knowledge and skills to make them successful in their career paths. The classes are great, and many of the departments I was associated with have gone to extra lengths to make sure that outside class projects, study abroads, and internships were of the utmost quality.

BYU has such an array of sports that we are all at least decent in. Our volleyball teams our great, our soccer teams are amazing, our football fluctuates a bit (sadly), gymnastics, hockey, track (we won some nationals recently), etc. They all have a ton of support to. You can always go to a sporting match and expect a good amount of students and other BYU fans to be there having fun.

Varsity sports at BYU are very popular. Going to games and cheering on our peers is a very big and exciting part of campus life. Our players are very well supported and games are fun for everyone, players and fans! IM sports are also really big at BYU they are open to anyone who wants to and they are fun and a great way to stay active.

Drugs are not popular at BYU. If there is any drugs at all it is kept a big secret because getting caught with any drug at all will cause you to be kicked out of the college all together. at BYU you never have to worry about drugs.

Off campus housing is very good at BYU you can find reasonably priced housing easily but it is more for students that have been attending college for a while. I recomend on-campus housing for your first and maybe even second year.

UTA Provides a great bus system and it is accessable through the wilk but their website is super confusing.

Thanks to the Honor Code's expectations of students to live a clean and healthy lifestyle, drugs and alcohol are non-existent and so is the pressure to do them.

Basketball and football games are a popular weeknight and weekend activity for the majority of students. While we do not have the best teams in our college league/division, the students take a lot of pride in individual athletes and in the spirit of the Cougars.

Lots of majors, good classes, Interesting professor

There's not very much diversity here as far as: religion, race, economic background, sexual orientation, or political beliefs. There are clubs for both Democrats and Republicans. There can be bad stereotypes about people here not being accepting of other races or sexual orientation; I don't think that people are actually that unaccepting, and not any hostility at the least.
College Student 2013-03-28T08:08:03Z
There is a wide variety of classes to choose from, and usually a variety of teachers within that specific class. The registration process is pretty smooth, though it can understandably get bogged down the night registration opens. Workload is pretty average for college, and some classes can be huge. There seems to always be special study options available, undergraduate research, club activities, opportunities to publish, etc.

Health & Safety:
I've never felt threatened in any way at BYU. There are police around and good Samaritans if anything were to go wrong, but if something did it would probably only be a really small problem. The biggest danger would be the drivers here. Buildings are locked down for the night and people are almost always respectful of the campus rules and laws in general.
College Sophomore 2013-03-28T05:00:52Z
So many people think BYU is just super strict and it won't be fun going to school there because of it, but honestly, the Honor Code is set for the benefit of BYU students and their safety.

The dorms are wonderful, the social life on campus is amazing; I have met so many amazing people that will be lasting friendships. Brand-new freshman dorms are being built right now and they are beautiful and great places to live. Costs are low and BYU gives grocery stores and the Bookstore that has everything one could possibly need. The housing process is a little difficult to incoming freshman because the website can be confusing, but overall it has been a good experience.

There is absolutely no drug scene at Brigham Young University. It is seriously non-existant.
College Senior 2013-03-27T05:27:19Z
There are great bus systems in place and convenient bike paths to ride to school on. Parking is tough to get, but most students either walk or ride bicycles. Motorcycles are hard to ride in the long winter months in Utah. Cheap and easy.

Internships at BYU are great. They are tough and require work, yet enable students to enjoy and learn from them. Although unpaid, a lot of the time they are subsidized to help students with real intent go abroad or get a prestigious scholarship. The Cambodian international development internship took a lot of daytime but left night times free.
College Senior 2013-03-27T05:16:12Z
Surprisingly, there is a lot of ethnic and cultural diversity at BYU - more than people give it credit for. Although there are a lot of white, conservative Americans there are quite a few foreign students come to study and participate here. However, there are a lot of stereotypes due to the fact that, looking around, it does not appear so.
College Senior 2013-03-27T05:09:29Z
The process of getting into my major was relatively easy. There was no special application process and one could apply anytime, before or after applying to the school. Personally, I went through two years of school before declaring my major at which time I went into the academic advisor, meet with her, and, after a brief interview, was an international relations major. No essay, no requirements, no hassle.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
