There are plenty of activities to keep the students busy. The students rarely have to venture off campus to find what they need. There are plenty of on-campus restaurants, stores, activities, help, library, etc.

The parking on BYU campus isn't horrible but it isn't the best either. You have to get to school a little early to get a good parking spot. If you live close to campus then it is better to walk than use a car. Permits are nice to have and make it easy to find a good parking space. The campus police are strict about parking permits and are not afraid to give tickets.

Decent Housing – The housing around campus is pretty decent. The cheaper apartments are usually older apartments but they're clean and safe to live in and the rent is much better compared to newer apartments.

Health & Safety:
Definitely Safe – I feel safe on campus. There are always so many people around and the campus police are always nearby in case you need them. Students are really nice and are not too rowdy or obnoxious. There are basic honor and safety codes for students to follow to prevent dangerous situations. I feel safe going at my school.

Four Seasons – Utah is fortunate to have all four seasons, with none of them being extreme. In the fall, it gets cold, but not so cold that it is really uncomfortable to walk to school. When the winter term lets out in the spring, it is beautiful weather. Students like to lay out on the lawns and do their homework.

Dorms, Apartments and Church Groups – The dorms and many of the off-campus housing complexes regularly plan parties and get-togethers. Church groups are big at this school, and they are always planning activities for the students as well.

BYU is a beautiful campus and strives to keep things as up-to-date as possible. There are several great places for students to gather, a state-of-the-art library with a large genealogy center. There is also the 20,000 seat Marriott Center where basketball games and many other programs are held. There are always many activities going on at any given time for students who want to really be involved and get to know other students.

Campus Food – I've never really eaten on campus so I'm not sure. Okay variety by the looks of it.

Elementary Ed – I LOVE my major. I think it is the best program at BYU. The teachers are experienced and willing to put in extra time to help you. The books we read are fascinating. The assignments are worthwhile. They assign you to a school your entire time in the program, that way you are more likely to find a teaching position upon graduation--great system!

The Athletics Department is awesome! Every event you go to is entertaining and very successful. It's so much fun.

There are lots of housing options if you act quite and they are all pretty decent. The trick is that you have to make sure its BYU approved housing so you have to be on top of it to get the places you want at a reasonable prive.

Breath of Fresh Air – Being at BYU has been like taking a vacation from the world. I feel completely comfortable here, knowing I won't be persecuted for my religion or beliefs. I don't have to be around drugs, alcohol, foul language, or other things that make me uncomfortable. I know those things are prevalent in the world, and I'll be around them again when I graduate, but it has been so nice to have a break from it for a few years.

Strict Is a Relative Term – BYU is an excellent place for students who want to be around others with the same values as they cherish. There is an honor code that each student must sign and abide by, but the types of students who typically aim for a BYU education will live those standards, anyway. If someone doesn't want to abide by the rules, they are welcome to attend another university. If you are someone who doesn't want to be forced to be around inappropriate sex, drugs, or alcohol, BYU is a place where you can be completely free from it.

There are always computers available in the Harold B. Lee Library computer labs at Brigham Young University--it's really nice for students undergoing financial struggles who can't find the money for a laptop. Easy access to technology is important in any university course (be it for research, essays, etc.), and BYU does a great job providing its students with the necessary resources.

A Higher Place – as a private school it has stricter rules and standards, it makes it wonderful not to have to be around drugs or alcohol and to know people around you have high standards. Religion is incorporated into most classes in some way. There are a lot of service opportunities and ways to be involved on campus, and our sports teams are awesome

most of the times its pretty much walking distance for most students, parking is horrible so you try to use a car to campus as little as possible. some do use the bus, but unfortunately at the end of this year the school discount will be no longer available

Never see any, haven't heard of any drug incidents or usage, no one uses it that i know, if people are found to use drugs or alcohol they are expelled

BYU is up in the mountains so we get four beautiful seasons. The summers are warm to hot, but not bad. The spring and fall can be just beautiful. The winter is not too cold and we get wonderful snow. We have weather here for people of all seasons.

Guys & Girls:
Beautiful People – The people here are wonderful. You will find very few places where you find such friendly and happy guys and girls. The is a great diversity from all over the country and the world so if desired one can get exposure to just about every culture. Dress is the best you will find anywhere else in the country. The women are very attractive. There are many married couples here as well.

BYU athletics are fantastic! The football, basketball, volleyball and all other sports games are so much fun and the student body is very involved.
Recent Alumnus 2011-02-18T01:52:52Z
Friendly and Fun – There are tons of activities on and off campus - lots of performances in the arts, plenty of sports, and abundant dating opportunities. Almost everyone is friendly and helpful, just really nice people. There are a few malls you can get to with a car, and Salt Lake City is about 45 minutes away. Provo's really Mormon, of course, but that means there's very little crime, almost no drunks wandering around, and lots of food.

There is a campus bus system if you have a pass, but most people walk or have a car. You can walk a lot to get around, but it is doable.

Campus Life – The campus is absolutely beautiful and sitauted at the base of the mountains. Although the school is old, the buildings are kept up very well. The student body is very friendly.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
