There are no drugs on BYU campus. If there are, it is extremely limited usage, and you won't find drug deals going on anywhere on campus. The Honor Code and religious environment pretty much insures there won't be much drug use or drinking, if any at all.

Everyone is pretty much the same: white, middle class, LDS, straight, and Republican. We do have a lot of international students but it's less than 10% of the entire school.

Provo is a college town so there are some things to do on campus. I come from a big city so the downtown area isn't what I'm used to but there are a few things to do (Velour, Communal). There is a wicked sweet laser arena across from Smith's that you must go to.

Provo is a medium sized town but has lots of fun activities. No matter what season it is there is always something to do. The best time of year is in the spring and summer; everyone seems to be coming out of hibernation at this point. You can go hiking, ride bikes, or stop by any park and there will be a sport going on. Everyone is really friendly and ready to make new friends.

I love the fact that we are an LDS school. It's a wonderful blessing to align our schooling with our greater purpose in life.
College Sophomore 2013-02-19T05:24:20Z
Well we have this wonderful thing called the honor code that we all signed. And part of the honor code is not to partake of harmful substances, including drugs and alcohol. So there's not really a problem with drugs and alcohol, because we know that it's harmful and detrimental to our learning.

The English Program here requires large amounts of reading, writing, and retention of facts. Also, there is a foreign language requirement.

Guys & Girls:
You will find many, many, many LDS folks at BYU. If you find a person living their religion attractive, then this campus will be full of eye-candy. If you are looking for a party scene, you can probably find it, but it will not be the mainstream whatsoever.

For the English Teaching Program you must first take the appropriate prerequisite courses. Following those, you must apply, submit writing samples, and film yourself teaching. Following your interview and acceptance you can begin to take the upper level courses.
College Junior 2013-02-19T01:40:52Z
There are many opportunities connected with the BYU Alumni Association.
College Junior 2013-02-19T01:37:49Z
My program require additional applications and interviews besides the general application to BYU. My goal is to become an English Secondary School teacher.
College Senior 2013-02-18T23:41:04Z
There are a lot of places, and a lot of variety from fast food to sit down. Some more expensive than others.
College Senior 2013-02-18T23:38:38Z
Honor code. Wont let you in the testing center or play sports if you aren't following it.
College Junior 2013-02-18T23:24:22Z
The dining halls are for the freshman and have a decent variety of foods. There is also the Cougar Eat in the Wilk where students can go in between classes and pick up food from different fast food places like Subway, Taco Bell, etc. The Twighlight zone in the Wilk also has quick food or supplies.

Provo is a small college town where there is always fun parties/activities going on with students. There are several small venues in Provo where local bands play, and there are other types of attractions like tumble gyms, hiking the Y, a mall, running trails, etc. However, Provo is very close to Orem which has other options for activities as well.
College Junior 2013-02-18T23:11:42Z
UTA buses are running all the time around Provo and Orem so you can get to places easier and cheaper.
College Junior 2013-02-18T22:44:06Z
There are plenty of labs around the campus and normally are a few computers available whichever you go to first. The entire campus has WiFi and it is reliable. During the weekends, they are never crowded. Through the various departments you can learn plenty of programming languages if you invest yourself. You don't need to bring your computer to school, but you should get one for yourself (you may also rent decent computers from the school for about 10-30 a month).
College Junior 2013-02-18T22:39:53Z
There is the sun, and then there is the snow.... The snow can get old fast, unless you really enjoy snowboarding. It destroyed my shoes last term. Besides that it is great. Don't have to worry about rain unlike the northwest and you get the extremes between the seasons, so it is fine to stay all year round.
College Junior 2013-02-18T22:30:46Z
There is stuff to do, but it sometimes takes a care to get there or a little too much money. Most of the time hanging out with friends can be great without going places just because of the beautiful mountains and the great job that grounds does. During the winter, the inversion browns the atmosphere. If you have the money to ski or snowboard, there are plenty of places close by to do that (only costs 40-50 bucks at the closest for a 4 hour run at night). The arts, theater and dance departments keep things happening on campus also, so you don't have to go elsewhere for that type of entertainment.
College Junior 2013-02-18T22:21:35Z
The social atmosphere is great at the on campus housing, but the costs can be up there also. Free WiFi is provided at most now. Parking may be difficult, most of the students are freshmen, and you are far from most grocery stores, except if you live at Wyview.

Guys & Girls:
There are bubble babies, jacks and everything in between, plus the variety from UVU up the hill helps shake things up every once in a while. Dress...well, expect leggings, long polyester black skirts, knee high boots with legwarmers, your occasional photoshoot hipster, and lots of perfectly curled hair.
Lots of people looking for serious marriage here, but there are a few who do want to finish school first. Lots of tall girls and short boys.
College Junior 2013-02-18T17:25:25Z
There's a lot of different places to eat, but good luck finding someone to go out and enjoy it with. Festival of Colors in SF is pretty great in the spring, and there's always something going on in SLC, if you don't mind a shock of overprocessed reality.
College Junior 2013-02-18T17:23:36Z
The library is great, lots of study rooms and space available.
I like the free gym and indoor running track.
Food in the Cougareat is pretty good.
There's lots of grass space, too; in the summer, everyone is out lounging or throwing frisbees on the grass.
College Junior 2013-02-18T17:19:11Z
There's a lot of really good internship and career placement programs.
I also love that there's a free gym and indoor running track.
Campus life isn't that great.
College Junior 2013-02-18T16:56:20Z
Yeah, it's white, white, super white. That being said, people are extremely tolerant of all races, even if they can't help being a little ignorant sometimes because of the bubble, and a lot of students have served missions in foreign countries and grown to love the culture and people they taught.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
