When it's good it GLORIOUS. But it's pretty fickle...very subject to change. Summers are usually really good but winter is rough.

Rise and Shout – If you're a fan at all, odds are you're a superfan. We're talking the kind of fans that paint themselves blue, follow a team cross country, and end up on the cover of magazines. Why do we care so much? Our cougar sports teams just plain ROCK.

Guys & Girls:
Just Good People – The people here, guys and girls, are generally just good, kind, awesome people. There are so so so many hilarious people here too. We have our fair share of crazies too. But everyone needs those.

It's Pretty Great. I don't usually have to worry about it, because it's convenient for me to walk, bike, or drive, and all of that works really smoothly!
College Freshman 2012-04-11T05:31:22Z
It Could Be Easier – Sometimes it gets a little bit crowded, and there aren't quite enough parking spots, but they're working on getting that fixed. I wouldn't say it's a terrible problem.
College Freshman 2012-04-11T05:30:03Z
So Unified – I love the athletics at our school because everyone is so unified, and we're all there for each other. We always have good sportsmanship, and we try to never do anything that we would regret. People are just so nice!

BYU is a wonderful place to be. There is safety and charm. The Honor Code is a great thing.

Melting Pot of the World – BYU has one of the biggest and most prestigious world languages program throughout all of the US. So with that comes a large population of people throughout all the world coming to this school looking to take part of the program. Nearly 75% of the 30,000 students here at BYU are bilingual and so the ability to find someone to communicate with is very easy and the students are very friendly here. Nearly all the people here are of the LDS faith and so they live to a very high standard of conduct, which translates into a very organized and strict university. The standards are what have made this university so powerful in its commitment to academic excellence. The gay population is welcome here at BYU just as long as they do not participate in homosexual behavior. Many say that the students here are intolerant of gays but they are actually welcoming despite their opposing views on certain aspects of life.

There is a lot of off-campus housing. Mostly it is very affordable because most of it is fairly old. Landlords range from responsible to horrible. There is parking and Provo is fairly safe. There is an Housing Office which will help you with off campus housing.

There are many, varied activities, events and attractions to attend in Provo, Utah. There are many sports activities associated with the school and a great many recreational opportunities in the Utah Valley Area. Local attitudes towards students swing from appreciation to only viewing them as a means of income.

Rec Management – The Recreation Management program is great. The professors are very willing to give extra help and guidance toward internships, graduation and employment. The workload is doable even with employment. The program includes many business classes as well as recreation classes to help graduates be more employable after graduation. Available internships are daily posted by the department to student emails. The recreation classes are incredibly varied.

Although most students live relatively close to campus and are able to walk most anywhere, bus schedules have started to become synced with classes in order to help students more efficiently navigate around campus from their dorm or apartment.
College Sophomore 2012-04-10T18:57:28Z
Drugs. Not a Huge Issue. Like I said before in the other question, because BYU is religion based, the Honor Code strictly prevents illegal drug use as a student. I am sure, though, that there may be a few students suffering with this problem, but the majority of students are sober and drug free.
College Sophomore 2012-04-10T18:53:38Z
Night Life – Due to the fact that BYU is a religious school, the night life is basically non-existent. There are occasional dances, movies and parties, but all are without alcohol and typically end around one or two in the morning. However, because of the religion that we live, we're perfectly okay with this. We don't drink, we don't do drugs, we live chaste lives and yet our kinds of parties are filled with good company, good laughs and the things that matter most.
College Student 2012-04-10T16:23:42Z
Safe but Still Fun – the honor code at BYU protects agains any illegal activities at parties and other events. some of the land lords are pretty strict about curfue but you don't need to stay up all night to have fun.
College Student 2012-04-10T16:21:50Z
Huge Sports Following – BYU sports are awesome. the entire studentbody is involved and the teams are always good. going to the games is a lot of fun and the facilities are great. itramural sports are really fun and almost everyone participates in atleast one activity.
College Student 2012-04-10T16:13:14Z
living on campus is a blast. there are so many interesting people and the social activities are so much fun. living in the dorms is great, especially with the new buildings being so close to the classes. it seems a little expensive but that's just because this is the first time i've every had to pay for housing.

Health & Safety:
Home and Safe – I don't think I have every felt unsafe at BYU. Everyone there looks out for eachother and reaches out to anyone. the close-nit atmoshpere makes you feel safe and at home.
College Student 2012-04-10T16:08:40Z
Extremely Spiritually Oriented – there is so much to do on campus and most of it is very spiritually oriented. the people are all really friendly and outgoing and the school activities are lots of fun.

Don't Procrastinate! There are plenty of scholarships, but many of them require the FAFSA to be completed before the school's scholarship deadline. Get it done early so you don't get left out in the cold. Also look up the Office of Prestigious Scholarships; it's the best kept financial aid secret ever!

Crap on Wheels – Cars aren't necessary, thank goodness, because trying to find parking within your permit allowance is a major hassle. They're always doing construction somewhere, and they always take up so much space doing it. If you want parking, you have to go to the stadium lot on the other end of campus.
College Junior 2012-04-08T21:19:02Z
Nonexistent Drug Scene – Due to BYU's Honor Code, students who attend do not participate in any drugs or controlled substances. Nobody on campus drinks, either. Off campus, I hear it's a little prevalent, but on campus and in the areas surrounding it (up till downtown), there is no problem with drugs.
Recent Alumnus 2012-04-01T22:42:37Z
Normal. Don't park where there are signed for certain permits.
Recent Alumnus 2012-04-01T22:41:05Z
Religious school - no alcohol. Various activities, dances, sports, games available.
Recent Alumnus 2012-04-01T22:38:18Z
I always lived off campus as it was cheaper and I liked my own rules and to cook myself.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
