  • The Best for Less

    May 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent education, beautiful surroundings, caring and loving teachers and staff
    Cons: My daughter and I found no cons

    Summary: I have the good fortune to be the mother of a Brigham Young University graduate. When my daughter decided to attend a university after high school, she knew exactly which school she wanted. The first thing we did was schedule a trip to the University ... read more

    Oct 11, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Prestigious, Good Professors, Relatively low tuition
    Cons: Large Class Sizes

    Summary: I attended Brigham Young University my freshman year of college, and I absolutely loved it! I have since transferred to a different school only because I got married, so I transferred to where my husband was going to school. There were so many things ... read more

    Mar 20, 2002 by

    Pros: Sports program, clean living, low tuition, Honor Code
    Cons: Honor Code (for those who don't want to live it)

    Summary: This is a wonderful university! I graduated in 2000, and I loved it. Here are some great things about BYU: It's one of the few universities that effectively balances religion and secular studies. The tuition is low (although you ... read more

  • Brigham Young University - where you don't have a name, just a social security number.

    Nov 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low cost, creative social life, motivational teachers, located in a beautiful state with outdoor diversity.
    Cons: Lots of hoops to jump through, competitive, strict honor code, students struggle with self-righteousness.

    Summary: I will begin by telling you that I loved my experience at BYU where I graduated in Elementary Education (the number one major for size). What did I love about it? -- Devoted, Motivational teachers... once you get into your program. My ... read more

  • BYU - It's Not Just For Mormons Anymore...

    Mar 12, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Outstanding institution, LOW tuition, excellent faculty, great sports, friendly campus, Honor Code.
    Cons: Honor Code (if you don't agree with it), Provo, lack of diversity.

    Summary: Coming to Brigham Young University from a far more liberal school like University of Oregon is probably something akin to moving from mid-town Manhattan to a monastery... the change is almost alarming at first, but you really get to like the peaceful ... read more

  • BYU is a great place to learn

    Feb 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Honor Code, Great Faculty, Religious Education, Setting
    Cons: Honor Code, Housing

    Summary: Face it, nowhere is perfect, but BYU makes learning a lot of fun. I personally enjoyed the religious education aspect of it. It developed my testimony so much. The faculty are always nice and considerate, and seem to care about the students unlike ... read more

  • BYU vs. University of Utah

    Feb 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fantastic Student Body, Honor Code, Religious Education, Great Social Life
    Cons: Honor Code, Off Campus Housing, Provo

    Summary: I began my education at the University of Utah, left on a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and completed my education at Brigham Young University. BYU's Pros are the University of Utah's Cons and vice-versa. ... read more

  • BYU: Not for everyone...

    Jan 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent library, reasonable tuition, they never kicked me out
    Cons: Ultra-conservative, controlled environment

    Summary: My opinion is in the minority here, but I would not recommend BYU to a friend or a younger sibling. BYU has its upsides, but those who value their independence are likely to be disappointed. Academics: BYU attracts a number of ... read more

  • Heritage Halls - the other on campus apt

    Sep 1, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Save $ by cooking your own meals, close to neighbors without living right on top of each other, and it is fun!
    Cons: If you don't have a car, it's hard to get groceries. Kent's Market is almost on campus but it is expensive.

    Summary: Heritage Halls is the only on campus apartment that actually feels like an apartment - not a typical dorm. Each building is 2-3 stories high and has (on average) four apartments on each floor. I lived in Heritage my freshman year because I ... read more

  • A little known secret about BYU

    Jul 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Learn more about business, meet new people that can help further your career, social benefits, a trip to RENO!
    Cons: People may associate you with being in a stereotypical fraternity

    Summary: BYU is not known for any fraternity affiliation. But a huge secret on campus is that a few do really exist. I am currently a member of Alpha Kappa Psi, a Professional Business Fraternity at Brigham Young University. We are a co-ed frat, that plan events ... read more

  • BYU

    Jul 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: atmosphere, cost
    Cons: none

    Summary: I will be attending BYU this fall, and I plan on majoring in business. A lot of mormons go to BYU, but a lot don't. I know parents try to influence their kids to go there. Mine did, but when it can down to it I decided to. So parents or kids out ... read more

    Pros: beautiful campus
    Cons: winter

    Summary: I believe it was the fall of 1992, when San Diego State went to Prove to play the cougars in football. I had been to the campus of B.Y.U. on a couple different occasions But what I would really like to talk about is how gorgeous that football ... read more

    Jun 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Free, Fun activities and dances, lots of eligible people to date, people with high standards
    Cons: ??

    Summary: Where else can you get a very good education and find many eligible people to date? I'm sure some things have changed since I graduated, but I know for a fact that BYU is still a place where people can find other quality people to date and ... read more

    May 23, 2000 by

    Pros: kitchen in apt., close to campus, great for freshman year
    Cons: no living room--just a couch in the kitchen area

    Summary: I lived in Heritage Halls both my freshman and sophomore years at BYU. I enjoyed both years, but by the end of my sophomore year, I was ready to move on to off-campus housing. Housing at Heritage Halls is more like actual apartments than ... read more

  • Shiny Happy People

    May 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Happy, Clean Atmosphere
    Cons: None

    Summary: You won't find a cleaner, better maintained campus anywhere. I've been to other schools where the floors are always dirty, the weeds run amuck, and graffiti decorates the bathroom walls. The BYU campus practically sparkles compared to most ... read more

  • Soccer Studs or Soccer Duds?

    May 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of fun- good times, new friends... cool stuff like that!
    Cons: You have less time to do homework?!

    Summary: Soccer- now there's a great sport! I love soccer tons. Just as much as I like hockey. Soccer was one of my first intramural sports at BYU. It was indoor soccer, which is quite fun- even if you don't know what you're doing, because you can use the walls ... read more

  • So you think we have no fun, eh?

    May 4, 2000 by

    Pros: We usually have our brains intact...
    Cons: ... if we don't- we don't have any excuses!

    Summary: Why would you- how could you.... think a thing like that for? That is horrible! Who says I don't have fun, cuz I do! eh... I don't have any proof, but do I need some? Just kidding on that! I'm the photography queen! I have pictures of everything! Even me ... read more

    Pros: pros to what? a meal plan? uh.. well- you'd get to eat... if you didn't have any money in the first place... of course...
    Cons: uh... you might not like what you get?!

    Summary: Hm... trying to decide if you want dining plus or open door? Well... it's a tough decision, I know. I don't know how I came up to the conclusion of picking Dining Plus, but I did- and it was a good thing, too. Dining Plus gives you about $10 a day. Maybe ... read more

  • Food: the good, the bad, and the ugly!

    May 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: There are a lot of places to go...
    Cons: Hm... the good ones aren't always open...

    Summary: Food- yum, yum...Or - isn't that the way it's supposed to be? The beginning of the year wasn't like that for me at all! It was a of the worse things that could ever happen to me- almost. See, I'm the kind of person ... read more
