Brigham Young University Reviews
Brigham Young University is a great school. It's really hard to complain! I have met some of my lifelong friends here and learned so many valuable lessons. There are just a few reasons stopping me from giving BYU 5 stars. First, the culture in Provo. If you go to school here, prepare yourself for a highly competitive culture. This affects not only schooling, but every aspect of life. Dating, extra-curricular, spirituality. People put up walls and try to appear perfect more than any other area I've ever seen. However, when you take the time to get to know them, they are great people with normal, human weaknesses. It's just an intimidating place to live in if you're not prepared!
BYU offers an uplifting, rigorous environment that isn't found anywhere else on earth--especially for the price! Professors are genuine and care about the big-picture education. Opportunities for research, study abroad and internships are plentiful. With the mountains nearby and countless events both on campus and in Provo, it's guaranteed that you will find good, clean fun!
BYU's atmosphere is friendly, uplifting, and fun, and its academics are excellent as well. I have always felt challenged by my coursework but have also always had plenty of help available from professors, teaching assistants, tutors and others who work with me patiently until I understand. My peers are considerate and helpful, and activities on campus are fun and frequent. I have very much enjoyed my time at BYU, and I have grown so much, too!
