What Students Are Saying

4.21 Average Rating
Remember that college is different from high school - you'll have to work harder and longer than you ever did before, but the opportunities here are totally worth it. Live on-campus your first year - you'll meet so many people and be with students your own age. Enjoy your college years - you'll never get these years back.
Christina from CA
Some advice I would give to BYU hopefuls is to do your homework as soon as you get out of class. This way you can open to do activities in the evening. Since you have to live on campus in the dorms, students around you will be very distracting. Take advantage of tutoring labs, teaching assistants and review and you’ll be in good shape. Get to know as many people as possible and make many new friends by accompany those who are alone. Finally, be open to spiritual change.
Carol from Provo, UT
If you want to get in, I would suggest working very hard. Starting yesterday. Seriously, it is pretty competitive. But it is so worth it to have the environment available here.
Brandon from Vancouver, WA
Come to BYU ready to have fun and make hundreds of life-long friends, all while learning and growing. It is truly a unique place, with thousands of incredible people. The sports are incredible. Get yourself a sports pass and you and I will watch Jimmer slam the Utes next year!
If you are going to be a Freshman, live at Helaman Halls. It is the best quality dorms on campus and has the delicious Cannon Center right in the middle of it. It has a great square in the center that is incredible for lying out in the summer with your friends and getting some sun while studying. You are going to love it here!
Joshua from Las Vegas, NV
Work hard and write good application essays. Also, apply for BYU scholarships!
Annie from Cedar Hills, UT
If you take two years of AP history classes you can get out of American Heritage which is a really difficult class. Make sure you go out of your way to meet new people and make friends so you can enjoy some of the fun stuff along with academics.
Courtney from Kansas City, MO
Take advantage of everything there is to do on campus. There are so many different clubs, like Premed club or Salsa dancing club or the medieval club practicing sword fighting, and intramural sports and fantastic music groups like the Cougar Marching Band or Living Legends or the BYU Young Ambassadors. And there are so many campus events, from football games to career and internship fairs and dances. Don't focus too much on getting your education finished that you miss out on all the exciting experiences you can have along the way.
Merridee from Redding, CA
Don't take an early morning class, especially your first semester! You'll be doing a lot of adjusting, and even if you have early-morning seminary now, you won't make it to class sometimes or you won't be able to concentrate.
Michelle from Provo, UT
Don't slack, don't stay up late, don't procrastinate, don't be stupid. Basically the same as any school, but do follow the honor code.
If you're like me and a cook, you'll avoid the Cannon Center like a toad on a kabob. The Cannon Center is the All you can eat food court for anyone, but mainly Freshman eat there. If you don't cook the meals they cook the food tastes amazing, but I do cook the foods they do.
Exercise in the morning, the FDA recommends it plus it is a good way to meet people in the weight room.
Do eat, do sleep, do do the work, do attend every activity possible, do go to the dances, do go to the amazing presentations in the Eyring Science Center, and do explore campus.
Tyler from Highland, UT
Be open-minded. Make friends. Study hard, work hard. Pay attention in class. Take advantage of the free activities on campus. Make the best out of the time you have at this great university!
