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!

Brigham Young University or also referees to BYU has been a influential in my progression in my higher education.

All of my classes push me harder than I desire at times but at the end of ever semester I appreciate the experience and knowledge I received from that class.

The student environment is highly respectable. The unity and school pride makes campus life exciting and gives campus a homey feeling.

The price for BYU's tuition isn't very high, it being one of my cheapest options, for a well accredited education it is a steal of a deal.

Brigham young may not be for everyone, but as for myself I couldn't ask for anything more!
The school is definitely difficult but very rewarding. The people you are surrounded by are hardworking and good examples. The campus is absolutely beautiful! They always have fun events and activities happening on campus and they make all of the sporting events fun for all of the students by providing a roc section and letting them participate in half time games. Each of the professors are unique and their lectures are very entertaining and interesting. I feel completely safe while on campus and Provo is a fun city with a lot going on and activities to do. Overall, BYU is a great school academically and socially.
