I love BYU! It is an amazing place to get an education because you are surrounded by the best of the best. There are amazing professors in all of the colleges that genuinely care about your success. The students are also very driven-- everyone wants to become the best they can be so there is a lot of competition. This is a good thing because you will push yourself and learn so much so you can be prepared to lead when you get into your career. Lastly, I love BYU because there are opportunities all over to serve! It keeps everyone thinking about other people and makes BYU a positive, uplifting university!
Review Brigham Young University
BYU is a fantastic school with incredible professors and a great active-learning environment. Everyone that goes to school there wants to learn and do their best. It is very competitive, but the students and teachers are always nice and willing to help if you ask. I've loved the last couple of years I've gone to school here, and although it has been extremely challenging, I wouldn't want to go to college anywhere else!
This has been a great college experience - it has offered me an insane amount of options compared to other universities, as far as major selection, teacher-student ratio and involvement, clubs, fine arts, community events, service and volunteer opportunities, and research and work experience. Regular on-campus events include weekly speeches from renowned leaders from all religions, institutions, causes, fields, and industries. This is THE place to be for anyone who wants an academically rigorous, culturally diverse experience (in spite of it being attended mostly by white kids) and the local and international connections that a large university has to offer, with the close-knit feeling of a small campus. It will prepare you well for the outside world if you take advantage of all of the resources it has to offer!
