Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

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.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 1994

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.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2014

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!

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2006

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.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2019

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.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

BYU is a great school. From an academic perspective I was intellectually engaged in nearly every class I took. I was especially impressed with the accounting major and business school as a whole. Socially, it is a large student body of over 30,000 and so there is always something fun going on.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

I loved BYU. It was a great environment where I was able to work hard and receive tons of help. The LDS church really brings a good spirit to the campus and people are happy and fun to be with. The church also helps with tuition costs so that's really nice. The professors really care and want to be there. There is always help to be found in whatever situation you are in. Classes are tough but you learn a lot. I wouldn't trade my time there for anything.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

BYU is, in my humble opinion, one of the best schools you can attend for the price you pay. The professors are there because they want to be. The campus is beautiful and very clean, nestled right up to the Wasatch Mountains. When it came time to look for a job, BYU's reputation held a very high standard in the eyes of the employers I met with, and I was able to secure a great job right out of college. BYU will definitely be on top of our list when our children are getting ready to go to college.
