Student & Graduate Reviews

Brenton McCrea - 9/30/2016
Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012
"The experience at BYU cannot be compared to any other. The combination of intellectual enrichment with spiritual enhancement makes BYU unique and invaluable. My time spent at BYU gave me the preparation and skills needed to be successful in the real world. When I began working my first full-time job post-graduation, my employer commented frequently of how impressed he was that I was able to apply what I had learned to the actual practice of engineering. I also left BYU with unforgettable memories of the experiences I had, both social and educational, that shaped me into the person I am today. Perhaps the worst part about landing a job on the east coast, 2000 miles away from BYU, is that I don't get to go back often to visit the place I grew to love. I will forever be grateful for what BYU gave me."

"Brigham Young University provides a good atmosphere to engage in quality study at a low cost. It is very possible to graduate with little or no student debt, as tuition is remarkably low. Instructors are good and most courses have a low student-teacher ratio, except for some few required lecture classes. Instructors strive to provide academic support to students, and students are also responsive to other peers. In most programs, students support each other and form study groups to help one another succeed. It is a wonderful place, and a lot of that is due to the high moral expectations that students are required to uphold. If you want a more liberal college experience, this is probably not the place for you. If you want economical, quality instruction with the opportunity to meet some Christians, look into this school. Most of the demographic consists of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but that is not a requirement to apply."

"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: Business
Graduation Year: 1992
"This is one the best private schools in the west. The staff is very professional, the curriculum is outstanding and the campus amassing. The School of Management taught me the skills I needed to make it in the business world. It prepared me to deal with different types organizations and different types of people. It game me the insight a business person needs to success in society today."

Cordelia - 6/16/2016
Degree: Liberal Studies
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."
