We had lots of fun. I haven't been to a college football game in years. This was well worth the trip. I look forward to getting season tickets next year. I really wish the game was earlier though but ... read more »
We took our kids to their first BYU football game. It was a great venue, game, and experience. The people were mostly friendly. The game was great. The entertainment was well planned. There are lots o... read more »

amazing education at a an unbeatable price. Students are happy, friendly, and helpful. The university does a lot for the surrounding community and holds world class entertainment.
Pros: * You can graduate debt free with a world class education. Can that be said of many other institutions? * Professors by and large care about their students. I had one professor who saw a significant portion of the class was struggling and taught a two hour remedial course at night to help those who needed it. When I told him it was after the busses ran and couldn't make it, he offered to take me home personally. * There is no rape culture. Rape statistics show it to be among the safest campuses in the world. Most years there are 0 rapes. Don't believe the press. Could rape response be better? Yes! But don't think that you are at a higher risk of getting raped if you go there. That's just not true. * The honor code. For as much bad press as it gets, it truly keeps the place a nice place to be. Draconian? Maybe. Not being able to shave is a small price to place to escape the pervasive drinking culture on every other campus I've ever been on. Are there drugs? Are there people doing bad things? I'm sure of it. But if you want to be good, you can. Cons: * Parking * Guidance counselors I interfaced with were not good. Most of the negative votes are from people who never actually went there. I never experienced overt homophobia while I was there. Maybe I just got lucky? I don't think so. By and large people at BYU are good, honest people who make mistakes.
I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and I enjoyed having the Honor Code. I learned a lot and grew a lot. My only problem was with the bureaucracy in the teaching department. Not many counselors were interested in me or my needs/wants, but if you are looking to just get told what to do, not a problem.
This is a wonderful place. If it's not your cup of tea, then don't come here, because it definitely isn't a perfect fit for everyone! I adore it, but then again I don't drink alcohol, tea, or coffee, I don't smoke, I don't engage in premarital sex, and I didn't even like having boys in my apartment past midnight (you know, until I got married. I guess my husband can stick around). I also like wearing clothes that actually cover my body. If this sounds like you too and you like freely applying spiritual (especially Christian) learning to academic learning and you love to study and work hard (and don't want to go into debt for it), then this is the place for you. If not, you would probably rate this place one star and say something nasty about it. ;) The social life for Mormons is great! If you're not willing to attend church, though, or at least church activities, your social life will probably be somewhat lacking unless you're a ridiculously bubbly person. Just being honest.
I got my undergrad from BYU. Unbeatable quality education for the price. Even if you aren't a member of the LDS Church, tuition is inexpensive. Administration and bureaucracy can frequently become very tiring and bothersome, but they do their best. Rivalry with Utah is fun, but way overblown. Great social scene, loss of fun activities and lots of opportunities.
