Brigham Young University Reviews
I absolutely loved my experience at BYU Provo! I have stayed there for about a week at a time over the past few years at one of their Youth Camps. Fantastic experience every time. The physical campus was pristine, as every college campus should be. The student body, (or whatever kind of student body you can get during July,) was not exactly ecstatic at our prescience, but they were friendly. I think most of them were really stressed out. The sense of community at the Student Center was wonderful. Felt like a classic High School cafeteria, with everyone talkin, laughing, doing homework, that sort of thing. My personal favorite part of campus is the BYU Creamery. It’s a pretty famous place for its size, and it seems to be a standard supermarket style store. My entire time there has been very pleasant. I loved every moment of it. I highly recommend BYU to anyone looking for a clean and principled college environment.
I am a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The school is a private university owned and sponsored by this church. Thus, the culture, standards of morality, codes of conduct, and faith integration are all very appealing to me. It's also a beautiful and well-kept campus! Everyone is really nice. Less diverse compared to other schools due to its location (Provo, UT - highly caucasian area), admittance standards (have to sign an honor code to attend saying you will live a conservative lifestyle), and students it attracts (clean-cut, sober, etc). It's not an Ivy League school, but it is tough! Great credentials and impressive merits. You can find a major that will be a little easier, but generally, the university is rigorous.
Brigham Young was the perfect choice for me! The quality of academics is competitive to those of prestige universities. The professors and staff are helpful and want to see you succeed! Also, for the education you are receiving no other university out there can beat the price. The campus is beautiful, and in an area with many post-graduate opportunities. You'll never feel homesick either, because the social life is huge there! I highly recommend this school to anyone!
