Brigham Young University Reviews
Review Brigham Young University
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!
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!
I love BYU because it offers a safe environment to learn and stretch yourself. The academics here are top notch, the campus is beautiful, and the price of tuition simply cannot be beat! If I had to do it all over again I would take better advantage of the great academic counseling system that they have here. You can basically go in on the first day of your freshman year and get all of your classes mapped out for the duration of your major. It’s so stress-relieving and in my experience all of the counselors have been kind and helpful.
