BYU campus is really pretty and the buildings and ground are well kept. There are always activities going on and lots of clubs to join. There is really something here for everyone. My favorite part of BYU campus though is the atmosphere that the students bring. Our campus is clean and lively and just a great place to be.

I love the English program here at BYU. The major is very open as to what classes you can take for certain requirements. It usually comes down to what interests you and you can usually find some really fun classes with some funny teachers. The workloads can be on the bigger side because all the homework is reading, analyzing, and writing, but those are the parts that I love so it works for me. The teachers are willing to help you improve your writing and analytical skills and the better you can write, the better to get internships or jobs in an English field. I love the diversity of English options for classes: British and American literary histories, rhetoric and persuasive writing, creative writing, folklore, literary theory, literature and film, and more. It's great.

The English major is really easy to get into. There are no prerequisites and you just go to the Humanities Department Office and talk to them. There is no abnormal application process. If you are interested in this major, I can tell you that it is really fun to be in it and it is easy to apply.

Guys & Girls:
In general the people here are pretty good looking (I'm a guy so I'm mostly talking about the girls). They are mostly LDS so they have good values and are pretty nice as well. Relationships can be a little weird because marriage is so big here, so people can either be a little bit over excited to date and get married or they are afraid to date because they think everyone just wants to marry them.

Most people are white and are LDS. There's not a ton of diversity but in general everyone is nice and fun to hang out with.

BYU offers a lot of help on finding scholarships, both those offered by BYU and by other institutions or organizations. Many of the scholarships BYU offers (especially to high school graduates) can be difficult to maintain, requiring a fairly high GPA or other things. This is what happened to me; I received a 4-year full-tuition academic scholarship from BYU, but after two semesters, I came up just short of the necessary 3.6 GPA to maintain the scholarship. I can't regain that particular scholarship, but BYU offers scholarship application opportunities each year so that students can at least regain a partial scholarship. Individual departments and colleges often offer scholarships as well to students involved in their programs, and BYU has a very effective research grant system known as the ORCA.

I love my major! I'm a geology major. All of my professors have been outstanding and incredibly helpful. They love taking us in the field and doing hands on research, not just memorizing facts in the classroom. Pretty heavy workload, but that's how you learn.
College Senior 2012-10-22T02:03:23Z
I'm a geology major at BYU. The department is fantastic. Professors are always available to talk with you if you have any problems, and TAs are pretty accessible. Lectures are really helpful, and there is lots of application involved in the learning process (not just memorizing facts).

If you like the outdoors, Provo is great. The mountains provide unlimited activities (hiking, skiing, swimming, fishing, boating, rafting, etc.) for any Saturday afternoon, which is awesome. The city itself isn't huge, but you can usually find something going on. Salt Lake City is just 45 minutes away, as well, which provides more to do.

Fairly easy process, just wish the aid would've covered all education needs- tuition, rent, and books. It covered most of it, but left me scambling at the beginning of each semester to get everything covered.

The BYU Honor Code is a policy that is enforced to make sure that everyone is following the LDS moral standards. Although it can be a nuisance at times, the curfew in particular, it keeps people from being sexually active or doing other activities that are inappropriate at BYU. If someone is found to have been a part of inappropriate activities, he or she could be in danger of being withdrawn from the university all together.

Off-campus housing can be a bother to get a hold of because the "good" housing goes quickly. All that is left after those are gone are the apartments that are ridiculously far from campus, have terrible management, and uncomfortable living conditions. For people who walk to campus, like me, location is a big deal. It is very difficult to find a reasonably priced apartment that is nearby that does not have problems with mold, leaks, etc. On the other hand, the "good" apartments are rather nice. Some are roomy with great parking conditions and a perfect walk to campus. Others have a great price with decent rooming conditions. Let's just say... you get what you pay for.

The library on BYU campus is extraordinary! It contains every type of book one could ever imagine. The accessibility and top-notch organization makes finding any book relatively easy. Not only is this building functionally fantastic, but aesthetically as well. The entrance of the library has beautiful glass walls along with a glass ceiling which lets in flattering natural light.

The Honor Code requires students to uphold a high standards, but they know this when they apply. If they want to uphold it, they come here and no one is forcing them to attend this school.

BYU is an excellent school with over 90 majors to choose from and many internship, study abroad, and other opportunities to that you can gain experience as well as an education. Professors are willing to take the time with you if you are willing to work with them, and that can make all the difference.

The environment at BYU is what drew me in: the Honor Code is followed by most students on campus and keeps a positive atmosphere. In my art history program, the classes were small and you got to know your professors well, which helped me to succeed and learn.

The parking is very limited, especially considering the number of enrolled students. There are not enough student parking spaces, and the ones that are there are too small.
If you want to find parking then you need to show up to campus early in the morning. Or be willing to sit and wait a while during the afternoon and hope that a spot frees up.

There are a lot of outdoor things to do around campus, though a car is needed. You can do everything you need to do on campus such as dry cleaning, bike repair, and even watch movies in the Varsity Theater. The BYU creamery is top notch and is also our local grocery store. Going off campus is also fun to do activities such as hiking, mountain biking, and snow boarding. Provo is considered a bubble within a bubble, the other bubble being Utah County. It is a lovely place to be, especially in the fall with Sundance being so close.

I think one of the best things about BYU is the fact that they give students the opportunity to do be around peers that have the same religious beliefs and moral values that they have. It truly is a very special experience. I also enjoy the weekly devotionals we are able to attend here. Every Tuesday at 11 the whole school shuts down so that everyone can attend devotional. It is always spiritually uplifting. Also a good college for anyone who wants to uphold their moral values.

Brigham Young University is very strict. Not only do they have an honor code but it extends to every part of your college life including nightly curfews and and even the way we dress. Though they are very strict, it creates a very good atmosphere for learning even though sometimes the rules don't make sense.

Pretty uncomplicated. Just fill out the appropriate forms

It is fairly good. I am a Theatre Arts Studies major and I just wish that I could go on more trips and research activities to see different cultures performing arts as well.

Athletics at Brigham Young University are some of the best! The coaches are quality, and students are very devoted to the teams. The whole city comes for games, and most games, especially around football and basketball season, are packed. It makes it easy to have school spirit when you love the athletes and coaches so much, and it makes games fun and rewarding.
College Senior 2012-10-16T16:45:50Z
I came to BYU because I wanted to be around people that had the same religious beliefs as I do. Not only did I find that, but I've been able to meet so many different types of people of all different types of beliefs, backgrounds etc. The professors I've had have always shown they care about their students, and encourage participation. It is a big workload, but totally doable.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
