"Brigham Young University is a great school, despite some of the discriminatory experiences I had there. Administrators/employees and students are generally conservative in their points of view; however, the professors provide a wide range of perspective and encourage students to make conclusions themselves. I have now been accepted to graduate school on my first try at Arizona State University and feel prepared. We will see if that feeling stays!"

"BYU actually helped me gain a diverse view of the world around me and gave me extremely valuable experience with internships and employment that proved extremely important during my grad school application process. The blend of general requirements and mix of sociology, psychology, and social work that I pursued truly helped to get me to where I am today. After my freshman year when I decided to change my major and not pursue my original career choice I had the option to take a for-credit class that allotted time to explore and learn about other options."

"BYU - Provo is the home to the Marriott School of Management. Nowhere else in the world will you find a better business school experience that is top notch! I not only received the education I came for, but one that is competitive in the business world today. Most of the programs within the Marriott School are top ranked in the nation. More than the educational experience, BYU offers the unique spiritual, religious aspect of learning. I learned early on to have a true balance in my life - more than just business skills, but life and family skills. I regret nothing by attending BYU and highly recommend it to others."

"I attended Brigham Young University. I attended 2 other colleges before this and ended at BYU. I would say that my time here was a time of growth and learning. I loved the professors and the quality of teaching. I did find I got a better education here than the other 2 schools I attended. Where I struggled was the competition at this school. I work hard at school, but am not the best test taker. It was hard with the competition being so high it ended with me feeling discouraged quite a bit. It isn't a bad thing necessarily that it is a competitive school, this was just something I struggled with. Great professors though."

"I loved going to Brigham Young University. It was a fun and uplifting environment. The professors were attentive and well-versed in their fields of study. Though I loved most of my program professors, many of them have recently retired and I don't know much about the new professors there. I highly recommend this school and program to anyone!"

"I have really enjoyed my time at BYU. I have been able to interact and work with many great professors who have influenced my education and future career ideas. My professors have pushed me and supported me throughout my time at BYU and I have always felt that I could talk to them about any education or career related questions I had. BYU has given me many opportunities to do study abroad programs and join the Honors Program. I have attended conferences and met people from across the world because of these experiences. I have also had great employment opportunities on campus that have influenced my future education and career."

"Brigham Young University is an excellent school with a safe environment and a multitude of incredible educational opportunities. Because the university is founded and funded by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints the campus is clean and free of drugs, alcohol, and most dangerous behaviors. The students that attend are beautiful and full of kindness and intelligence. The prfessors and other teaching staff truly hope that the attending students succeed and will do anything within their power to support you as an individual. There are also so many amazing resources for struggling or disadvantaged students and I highly recommend taking advantage of these. Go to your professors and get to know; they will help you so much. This is a great school to get a world-class education."

"Brigham Young University is an incredible learning environment. The teachers and other school employees are friendly and willing to help. The other students on campus are all driven to gain knowledge and skills. The cost is much lower than almost any other university and the quality of education ranks high nationally."

"Brigham Young University is a university sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and has extremely strong ties to the church. In light of this affiliation, students are expected to live in line with the standards that the church has set. This can clash with the college party life style. However, because the standards are held high students here have much higher expectations of themselves and the university. Employers know this too and come to BYU for the high caliber students that it produces."

"It was a privilege to attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. The environment and culture of the university is wholesome and welcoming. Students come from all around the world to receive an education that is subsidized by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Professors approach all learning with a perspective based on the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ and with the intent to better the lives of their students. The campus grounds are well maintained, beautiful, and easily accommodate the 30,000+ students who attend. The education program prepares teachers to enter the classroom with knowledge that is gained from practicum experience and direction from leading educator professors."

"Wonderful university and program that's really one of a kind. The people you will meet there will change your life for the better. BYU is a school full of professors who actually care about you and people that have a positive influence on your life. There is no university that I would have preferred attending over BYU."

"BYU was a very lively campus with a lot of students. Professors and students are friendly, kind, ambitious and take learning very seriously. I did not find a very diverse group of individuals either in the academic faculty or within the student body, resulting in a frustrating experience and difficulty in expressing my own professional and personal aspirations that did not fit a very specific mold."

"BYU was the perfect place to get my undergrad degree. The price was right, the environment was amazing, and the teachers were dedicated to the success of the students. I loved it! Everyone who knows about BYU has an idea for what the campus environment is like, and it's not for everyone, but if you go there intending to have a true BYU experience, you won't be disappointed!"

"The most useful part of the elementary education program was the two consecutive semesters that combined regular campus coursework with field experience in public schools. For one month out of each semester we were assigned to a classroom at an elementary school that participated in an ongoing partnership with the university. The responsibilities in real classrooms made the textbook knowledge actually meaningful and applicable. This helped to prepare me for my own entry into professional teaching."

"Brigham Young University is an excellent school that is committed to serving its students. There is no better school to do undergraduate research, and it's also one of the most affordable schools in the country. The school also offers a different college experience from most other schools with it Honor Code. The school is a great stepping stone to other graduate programs."

"Receiving my Exercise Science major at Brigham Young University was extremely enriching and rewarding. The classes were challenging but the brilliant professors helped me to grasp the difficult concepts needed to succeed. I finished my undergraduate career with a great understanding of the Exercise Science. The best part about it was that it gave me an even greater desire to learn more about the field. The fire for learning that BYU gave me will be a great benefit as I continue my education at Physical Therapy School."

"I loved my time at BYU. The English Department is full of really helpful faculty who genuinely care about educating students. You do have to be focused as an English major as to what kind of job you'll have after graduating. I wanted to edit so I took all the editing and grammar classes and set myself up nicely as a freelance editor. The program gave me the knowledge I needed to do my job."

"I studied the Bachelor of Music in Music Composition at Brigham Young University. The faculty focus on expanding the musical influences of each student to include contemporary composition techniques and to push the envelope with what can be done to achieve a new, original sound. The faculty are all very skilled in composition and each have their own unique insights. I am pursuing a career in composing for games, film, and television, and while this program did an excellent job expanding my compositional toolkit, I find it necessary to pursue a graduate degree in film scoring to fully prepare me for the media music industry."

"BYUs English Department is chock full of educators with a passion for teaching and helping those in their classes see the importance of their studies. As with many liberal arts degrees, the soft skills taught do not correlate with dollars and cents the way a degree in the sciences might, but the skills I picked up along the way have been invaluable for my current career in marketing"

"My time at BYU has been an outstanding example of true educational value. Students and professors are all of the highest caliber and raise the bar for academic and behavioral excellence a little higher every year. For the amount that the average student pays in tuition and fees, I have a hard time imagining another institution that provides as much by way of resources and high-quality learning experiences for the price. The party scene definitely isn't typical of other universities around the nation since, but what BYU lacks in greek life and raves it makes up for in adventurous outdoor activities. Personally, I have loved being able to drive 20 minutes from my apartment up the canyon with a bunch of friends from class, ski at Sundance for a few hours and be back in time for afternoon class in the winter. On the other hand, summers leave hundreds of miles of trails open for day trips to nearby waterfalls, summits and hot springs, a welcome relief from the rigorous study schedule of a typical BYU student."
