The learning environment at Brigham Young University is incredible! The professors are so passionate about their fields of study and are dedicated to helping students find that same passion. With frequent campus events and collegiate athletic events, the social life at BYU is amazing. BYU has a very high standard of conduct. Among other things, BYU's honor code prohibits students from substance abuse and consuming alcoholic beverages and tobacco. Students must live an honest life, use clean language, and obey the law of the land. Brigham Young University fosters excellence and provides an environment that encourages students to excel in their field of study, no matter what it may be.
Review Brigham Young University
It's my freshman year, and everything about college has been amazing! There is a culture here on campus that welcomes even the freshest of the freshman! I'm making tons of new friends, and really stretching my brain in ways I never imagined! Campus is beautiful, and walking everywhere gives me plenty of exercise. The professors all really care about what they're teaching, and how they're teaching it: they want us to learn! It's been amazing so far, and I can't wait to see where it goes!
I love BYU! The classes are challenging and they prepare you for grad school and other upper education courses. Not only are the professors, and TAs willing to help you, but your fellow classmates are also so kind. There were many times that I was sick and not one but SEVERAL of my classmates sent me notes from the lecture. The tuition is also so affordable. BYU gives you a great education without students having to graduate with an overwhelming amount of student loans. If you want to go to a great school, with great classmates, at a reasonable price, BYU is the place for you.
