Not So Much – The atmosphere at byu/Provo doesn't include a lot of bars or clubs though you can find a few if you're interested and look hard. A lot of the shops close early, but restaurants and house parties are pretty common and run late.

Good Variety, but a Little Pricey – There is a good variety of food to be found on campus, including: a nice cafeteria, a food court, a few nicer small places, and one extremely nice eating place. All of these are a little pricey though. I found the meal card to be a waste of money also. More often, I frequented the small corner food mart on campus. The food off campus is great though! So many options!

Health & Safety:
Use common sense and you're fine. There are a few remote paths on campus that are not safe to wander down by yourself at night, but these are marked pretty clearly. Lock doors to avoid petty theft. I always felt safe on campus though.

I haven't had an internship yet, and frankly haven't become very well informed yet. However, from research and talking with Professors and other students I do know that internships are plentiful and highly encouraged.

Depending on the time of year, Provo can be both great and miserable depending on the weather. Summer is blisteringly hot and extremely dry (the humidity is almost non-existent). Fall is perfect, and winter is extremely cold & snowy which is exciting at first, but gets old after a while. Spring is also pretty pleasant. The perfect time of year is the transition between Summer & Fall when everything is perfect.

Provo Utah is a fantastic location for a University Student. Like most college towns, local businesses and entertainment centers cater heavily to students offering low prices and availability. The opportunities are endless. Also, with the Wasatch Mountains literally in our backyard there is great hiking, camping, fishing, skiing & snowboarding all within 20 minutes of driving from campus. The Pizza Pie cafe is a must visit in Provo.

I love it here. There are always things going on, but places to study when you need to. The staff is the best I've ever met. Just last week I showed my professor I bubbled 2 test questions wrong, but had it right on my paper. He gave me full points back without even questioning. They trust you here. I love it!

It is hard to get cheap housing near campus. I was lucky and got into Regency, which chooses its tennants with a raffle. There is plenty of housing if you want to live further away or have a little more money. There are some very helpful websites that will show you the availability of BYU housing.

Provo is a great city if you are the type of person who likes a safe neighborhood where strangers feel comfortable talking to eachother. There are always free events (and often free food) going on. One problem is the driving conditions. People here are kinda dangerous and there isn't much parking near campus unless you are BYU staff.

No cost for permit which is good, parking spaces are hard to come by if you come after 8 am.

There is no drinking, no clubbing, parties are mostly just hanging out with friends.

Night Life – There isn't much of a night life here. The most fun that you will have is at house parties but as far as actual clubs or bars there aren't any. Its illegal to watch movies in public places on campus and visiting hours in the dorms are such that you can only be in a member of the opposite sexes room twice a week for two hours. So having a night life at the dorms is also difficult.

Due to its dress code and stance as a religious school, BYU, contains little to no acceptance of people with differences. While it requires students to fill out and agree to its honor code those students whose beliefs do not align with that of the school find it difficult to do so. Also the campus is primarily white and so has little to no ethnic population.

Morality Centered Fun – Lots of clean comedy shows as well as musicals and drama. Lots of good, clean fun activities sponsored for the students by individual clubs, committees or departments.
College Senior 2011-10-25T01:19:21Z
Great School – Our student body is incredibly diverse ethnically. We have many students from abroad, speaking many different languages. There are many socio-economic levels represented, and many students receive student aid, while 15,ooo work on campus. There are many students who do not belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints which operates the school. There is no issue of sexual orientation because to attend BYU one must sign the Honor Code. Sexual immorality is not permitted.

They are somewhat helpful, but it is not really clear cut. They assume I am already aware of things when I am not, and so the process takes longer as I find the missing paperwork and links.

Football and basketball are the main two sports that our school takes pride in, but basketball is more important to us as we are better at that.

Though predominately white, here are many cultures involved on campus. Nearly everyone know at least two languages and many know more. Each student brings the culture of their known language to campus.

The BEST Campus on the Planet! I can't think of a better campus to be on or student body to be a part of' and I've tried a few.

Great LDS Community With Lots of Activities – There are always good wholesome activities going on in and around Provo - both for the individual and for the family. Everything from sports to seeing top LDS music artists perform at a house concert.

Car Not Needed. BYU is all in one place and the state buses are everywhere.

Finding Housing – BYU has a housing mag that advertises for local housings and a easy to use off campus housing search online.
College Junior 2011-10-15T21:21:32Z
There is no parking on campus. Luckily there is a bus that picks students up.
College Junior 2011-10-15T21:20:56Z
The rules are strictly enforced at BYU and sometimes seem quite ridiculous. I feel like I have more rules here than I did living with my parents.
College Junior 2011-10-15T21:19:10Z
At BYU there is really no night life unless you go into town.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
