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.

I love being at BYU! The students and faculty here are dedicated to what they do and what the university is all about: entering to learn and going forth to serve. I have always wanted to attend Brigham Young University since I was little. I would visit the campus every time I came to Utah, and each time I fell a little more in love with it. There are always things going on on campus, from sporting events to stage productions to club meetings. There are multiple opportunities for people to find their niche and where they truly belong on campus. I would not trade my experience here for anything.
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!
