The Psychology program here is great! All of the professors are willing to assist in any way they can to help you get research experience. They also help you to know what steps you need to take in order to look good on your grad school applications.

Parking on campus is ridiculous. You have to get there really early in the morning to find a spot, and if you park where you're not supposed to you're almost guaranteed to get a ticket. It's better to walk/ride a bike or the bus.

Sports are a pretty big deal at BYU, and our teams generally do pretty well. It's a fun environment to hang out and meet people, and we have a pretty active student section as well.

I don't really pay attention to sports so I can't really say anything.

There isn't really a "drug scene" at BYU. When you apply you have check that you will abide by the Honor Code set by BYU which includes respecting others, abstaining from alcoholic beverages and substance abuse among other things. Most of the students as well as teachers are LDS (Mormons) so there really isn't that much of a problem with regards to drugs.

Parking on campus is almost impossible, and a lot of apartment parking garages cost a lot. There is free street parking, though, but it is very hard to find a spot often.
College Junior 2013-03-04T22:02:19Z
There are actually a lot of great places to go to eat in Provo because that's what we do. There are also many grocery stores in the area.

Health & Safety:
BYU is really pretty safe, but not as safe as everyone seems to think it is. There are sometimes theft and sexual assaults, but probably much less often than other schools. I think the students here feel too comfortable and fail to lock their doors and protect themselves at night. Usually if a girl was assaulted she was walking alone very late at night in a very dark area of campus.

The school has very large lots. Parking permits are required, but free to obtain. The only issue was that when there would be large events, they would close many of the student spots and it would be impossible to find a spot.

It snows there, but I love it. The campus and the mountains towering over it are beautiful in the winter. Summer and spring are warm and nice though

BYU is a very clean school. Most don't do drugs because student who are caught will be kicked out. The school has no tolerance for drugs or alcohol.

Main mode of transportation : walking.
There are some buses for public transportation and you can get an unlimited 30-day pass. Cons: waiting a while.

Most students are caucasian. However, most people speak at least more than one language.

For years now, BYU has been the most stone-cold sober university in the nation. That about sums it up!
College Senior 2013-03-03T23:04:45Z
Brigham Young University is a church-sponsored private institution, so it only makes sense that there is very little religious and political diversity. I do know a handful of people who belong to a different religion, or who support a different political candidate than most, however. The racial diversity here is close to zero, which bothers me.

There is a great nightlife at BYU but it is a different kind of nightlife. There are always great concerts on the weekends and there are comedy groups that perform at the school. There is just no drinking and hard partying.

They just redid the scholarship application that is online and it is very easy to use. The scholarship money is automatically applied to your financial center account. To receive a scholarship you must have a pretty high GPA so always try to get the best grades possible.

I love BYU because everyone there is so dedicated to education. The professors really wants their students to excel and the students are there to learn. There is a variety of majors to choose from and some of the programs are the best in the country.
College Senior 2013-03-02T17:09:03Z
I am an English major. It is a great major and all of the professors are really knowledgeable and you build a camaraderie with your fellow students.

I love Utah weather. The summers are beautiful, but can get pretty hot. I love the fall and spring season, both are gorgeous and great weather. The part that people complain about constantly is the snow and cold. It basically starts snowing in November and doesn't stop until the end of March, and it can get really, really cold. School is almost never cancelled because of the snow or cold, so you have to layer up and make the best of it.

Parking on campus is a nightmare. Unless you get there at 7:00 in the morning, you'll have to park really far away from campus. There are free spots on the street, but those fill up quickly as well. The best chance of getting a parking spot after 7:00 in the morning is coming at a time when classes end and following students to their cars. Creepy, but effective.
Recent Alumnus 2013-03-02T05:50:51Z
I gave BYU a D- not because people there are not tolerant of different races and religion, but because it is not varied. It is mostly comprised of white, LDS students. There are people of other races, and even a few of different religions, but not many.
Recent Alumnus 2013-03-02T05:46:39Z
I'm going to assume that if you're looking into BYU, you have LDS standards. If you are coming to BYU expecting to have crazy parties, drinking, and clubs, you've definitely come to the wrong place. But as a person with LDS standards, the nightlife is great! You can always find something to do, whether it's on campus or around Provo. There are lots of great restaurants and activities to do. Driving and parking is probably the best transportation, but busses are available, or there are a lot of things within walking distance.
College Sophomore 2013-02-28T21:53:32Z
They are new, in good condition, and work perfectly.
College Freshman 2013-02-28T18:54:57Z
The nightlife scene is much different compared to other colleges. If you aren't used to a Mormon environment which is free of alcohol, drugs, and other things we think of as immoral, then you would find it hard to fit in. The students at BYU follow a strict honor code. We have many activities that go on nearly every night and parties. They are different parties than those at other colleges however. They are still fun though.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
