"The professors are very concerned with one-on-one support for their students. They respond promptly to email correspondence and are willing to meet students individually as often as needed. Undergrads at the university have abundant opportunities to do their own research projects and grad students can teach introductory level classes. The atmosphere at the university is very well suited to education and personal development."

"I loved the college experience. It was a very safe school, I loved my classes, the price was affordable. I was able to find work on campus. I liked their honor code but can see that it wouldn't be for everyone."

"Beautiful campus with friendly students and staff. Contrary to what many may believe, the education was well-balanced in terms of conservative v. liberal viewpoints. Great "bang for your buck""

  • Degree: Economics
"BYU is a fantastic school that combines secular learning with a spiritual environment. The student life is focused on helping you have an uplifting experience without compromising any morals or values you might have. I always felt a genuine concern from each professor. The economics department is not an area for people wanting to get by. It was a challenge, but I came out knowing I could accomplish hard things. Each professor in that department is focused on helping students succeed. I am grateful for the career office and all they helped. I was able to have open discussions. I highly recommend getting into a freshman academy program if you are a new freshman. It helps you start school running without having to worry about forming study groups or working really hard to meet new people. BYU has a very strong alumni network that can't be beat. Most alumni networks have strength in specific regions around the school. BYU has alumni across the globe and has always served me when looking for a new career opportunity, regardless of my major in Economics."

"BYU is a beautiful, stretching campus, especially in the springtime. The library is impressive and an excellent resource. I found other resources on campus to be helpful throughout my undergraduate education as well: the Career and Counseling centers, Women's services and resources, the Writing Center, and college advisement centers. I loved many of my professors and found them to be great teachers and experts in their fields. I felt very lucky to learn from them, and I believe BYU employs excellent, gifted educators. Most of the facilities are clean and up-to-date, and BYU has a steady income from donors and funds that it is always improving and remodeling something on campus. Pros: -Very affordable education at a good value. Great scholarships and financial aid available. -Excellent professors and student resources. -Beautiful campus and community. -Provo is growing and constantly improving. A great city to live in. -Easy and affordable access to Salt Lake City using the frontrunner train directly from Provo. -Talented students and outstanding extracurricular/co-curricular programs. -Online independent study classes available. Classes also available at the Salt Lake center. Cons: -Lack of diversity on campus. I think this is a university that does not have sufficient systems in place to cater to international, non-white, non-Mormon, and non-heterosexual students. Some (not all) people at the university can be bigoted or small minded when it comes to inclusiveness and diversity. -The rules of the honor code can be strict and inflexible, but students know what they sign up for coming in. -Campus can be somewhat isolated from the rest of the city. BYU seems more and more to be trying to create a physical distinction between itself and the rest of Provo. -BYU is a big, growing, and sometimes crowded university. Students who like smaller teacher to student ratios will be unhappy here. Unless you are in a small program, there's a lot of anonymity in your educational experience. -Some experience difficulty transferring BYU's credits elsewhere (mostly due to the required religion credits)."

"This grad program is very competitive. Only 15% of the people who apply are accepted. The pros are an excellent faculty. They prepare you to enter the field having completed a master's thesis. Getting a job with a BYU degree is almost guaranteed. A con of the program is that there is not a lot of financial aid offered."

"This program is great for graduate students who want establish a network by making connections with professors and others. People have been very friendly and open to help. If student diversity is an issue for you it's predominantly white mid-western people but they're great. Classes are hard but I learn a lot. I would suggest this place to anyone seeking a graduate degree!"

"I think one of the biggest pros to BYU's speech language pathology graduate program is quality of professors and education provided. It is one of the last graduate programs that still require a thesis component, encouraging students to experience the ins and outs of research. Before entering the program, I would have laughed if someone suggested that I pursue a PhD. Now, after having completed my thesis in the first year of the program I can appreciate the contribution of ongoing research and would be happy to be a part of a PhD program down the road."

"I feel this program at Brigham Young University is great. The professors are not there to just teach, they actually care about you and want you as a student to succeed. The class room environment is one of success and happiness. When you attend your classes you actually want to be there. However, if I could change one thing it would be the organization of the program. It is extremely difficult to know what classes you need and the steps you need to take in order to graduate."
