This school will get you your bang for your buck. It is affordable, it has many of the top programs in the Nation and has great resources, learning opportunities and is in a great area. The students are ready to learn, serve and there is a great amount to do outside of class.
Awesome school. However, it is extremely competitive. If you are interested in business, accounting, finance, foreign language, or area studies its hard to beat. If you are concerned about keeping you GPA up good luck! Lots of super amazing study abroad opportunities that can take you wherever you could possibly want to go.
I absolutely love Brigham Young University. There has never been a place where I felt like I belonged there as much as I feel being at BYU. There is such a good community at this University. You will always be surrounded by a good community whenever you step foot on campus. It is really such a good place to be. I feel like my education has really excelled from my time at this university.
For those that are NOT geniuses (nor have photographic memories) there are two options, go to a top tier school (like an MIT in STEM, Harvard in Law, etc.) and cram the stuff into our brains, just long enough to get the 'A' grades or come to BYU and have a more pleasant college experience where the information has a chance to sink in. This choice will cause you to not be exposed to quite as much information, but will allow you to develop more life wisdom and it may take you 5 years to get your engineering degree at BYU vs. 4 years at a Carnegie Institute of Technology program, but around 9 semesters of tuision at BYU will be less than 1 semester tuision at CMU. It is hard to justify the "ivy league" decision based on ROI, meaning only go there if you really want to and if they have a project you really want to work on: AI at CMU or Robotics at MIT, versus ACERC, Egyptian Genetics, etc. at BYU.

Katherine, take college seriously but don't take yourself too seriously. Study hard, play hard, and live life to the fullest. Your potential is eternal and with God you can achieve any and all of your dreams. Enter to serve; go forth to learn.
White Mormon kids from California who don't necessarily know a ton about the real world.
The constant change in weather since it is never predictable and can change at the worst times.
Brigham Young University provides a clean and uplifting environment for learning. We are encouraged to become better people while preparing for our future lives. BYU men's basketball has had an extremely great year and this publicity has drawn attention to the honor code that we sign upon acceptance to this school. The honor code is a huge part of what makes this school so unique and wholesome.
It's a well rounded school, but also has a stong emphasis on religion and how it can apply to your life.
The best thing about this school is definitely the curriculum and the people here. The curriculum sets you up for a successful future. Employers respect BYU graduates and we leave well prepared for the real world. The people here are extremely kind and genuine. We care about each other and usually go out of our own ways to assist each other.
I wish I had better understood about general education classes and when I should take them. My reccomendations is when you first get to school go and talk to an academic advisor!
If you're looking for a religious college setting, a fabulous social life, and a lot of hard, worthwhile work, BYU is the place for you. A person who attends this school need to be dedicated. This dedication is not only regarding academics and a career path. I'm speaking of dedication to making life in every aspect the best it can be. BYU encourages setting goals socially, morally, physically, and mentally. Improvement and lifelong learning is the ultimate goal here and if you want to grow, BYU is the college for you.
I brag about the environment. Brigham Young University is known very well for it's high expectations regarding moral standards. Because virtuous living is promoted here, there is an uplifting feeling on campus and in the off-campus housing for BYU. I grew up in Las Vegas, and can say that the feelings I experienced there were much different, much more negative, than what I have felt here. I feel that I have matured more not only spritually because of the environment, but academically. BYU is a friendly, moral, and happy place to be; it's the place for me.
BYU is best known for the fact that it is an LDS school. Another thing BYU is famous for is its business school. The Marriott School of Business is constantly ranked among the best business schools.
Sometimes the feeling of jumping into a relationship is annoying. Most people here want to get married and it's common for people to assume you want a serious relationship with them if you act interested as a friend, which isn't true lots of the time.
The general classes everyone is required to take are usually the least favorite course. Even then, they aren't too bad! Everyone participates and students are competitive yet willing to help each other. Professors are easy to reach outside of class.
I love BYU. Lots of people dont. People that come to BYU do so because they want to be around other people who share their morals and standards. We dont want to have the temptation of drinking and partying that exists at other schools. This is a huge reason people come here but then a lot of kids complain that Provo is a boring town...which its not at all. We are 20 minutes from 11 incredible ski and snowboard resorts. There is tons to do in Provo. Bowling, iceskating, tons of sports, concerts, tooons of places to go out to eat, dance parties all the time, etc. Dont complain if you come here. YOU chose to come here.
Students love going to basketball, football, and baseball games. The dating scene is very involved. People are rarely found drinking or partying on the weekends; movies, hiking, and dances are more common.
yes. all true.
Thier goal is to get you married before you get your undergraduate degree.
Students are stereotyped as 'goody-goods' which is mostly accurate! More positive stereotypes are driven, focused, and giving.
Almost all students love to support BYU football! It's kind of a big deal. We also have an avid fan section for our women's soccer team.
