Degree: Dietetics/Dietitian
Graduation Year: 2011

I loved my experience at BYU. It is a private/religious college so most students are LDS and it was wonderful to be around so many people who do not drink alcohol or do drugs and had similar standards and ideas as myself. All of the professors that I had were intelligent and helpful and wanted their students to do well. I really loved going to school here.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2013

I had a great experience at BYU. It is a campus that fosters a positive learning environment and really allowed me to grow and develop as an individual. More than just getting a degree, I made insights, relationships, and a way of analysis that will enrich my life for years to come.

Degree: Geography, Other
Graduation Year: 2006

My time at BYU was irreplaceable in my life. It became an essential part of helping me to become the person I am today. The school has a good balance of competition and support from both faculty and fellow students. I felt I was stretched and supported all along the way while I was there. I would recommend BYU to anyone looking for a good, supportive environment where morals are upheld. You do not need to be LDS (Mormon) to attend, although most of the students are. If you do decide to attend, I hope that BYU will be as instrumental in helping you find yourself as it was for me.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2011

I am glad I went to BYU because the campus is clean, uplifting, and there are many majors offered. I was not glad I went to BYU because of the required religion courses that affect your GPA and the strict Honor Code specifically related to hair and clothing.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 1988

Brigham Young University provided an excellent large-scale university experience. The academic programs available to me were diverse and interesting. Once into my major, I had the opportunity to work closely with professors on real-life projects that were meaningful.

Degree: Illustration
Graduation Year: 2007

Had a great time. The school is full of motivated students and professors, and there's a real professional quality about the approach to education. I definitely give it a five star review, but with one caveat: it's not a place to go if you want to doubt the "Why" behind why we're here on Earth (if you're already a member of BYU's religion, LDS Christian). People are told to accept certain answers, and even if I believe them, I do dislike not being able to come up with other answers for myself.

Degree: Geography
Graduation Year: 2003

For the price the school is the best bang for your buck you are going to get. It is a very respected school that has a very good reputation. The problems that I had with the school were class size, the limited amount of space in the programs of study in which you had to apply to get into, but if did not get in what are you supposed to do?! Then you end up wasting your time at a school hoping to get into your program of study. The campus is beautiful, and well maintained.

Degree: Teacher Education and Professional Development, Specific Levels and Methods, Other
Graduation Year: 2007

I loved my undergraduate experience at BYU Provo. It was ultra-challenging yet deeply rewarding. I felt like I was exposed to great literature and ideas and taught by brilliant professors. I felt safe and made lots of life-long friendships. Ideas were discussed and debated in class. I greatly enjoyed the LDS-standards culture. It is a great place for someone that doesn't drink and believes in sex after marriage because there are a lot of people there with similar views. The tuition is super-reasonable. The cost of living is fairly inexpensive. There are also a lot of extra-curricular activities, sports, live bands, comedy, dances, art exhibits, etc. Lots of fun positive things to do.
