Latter-day Saints Business College is awesome. I am so glad I decided to come here, the culture is amazing. It is so well rounded.
Tips for prospective students
Go into something at this school that will lead you on the right path when you move on to a 4 year school.
What to do for fun
There are so many clubs and the classes are so tight knit that it's impossible not to make new friends!
Bang for the buck
It is so affordable, the professors are awesome and the curriculum is perfect for the setting and for moving on.
Great for these types of students
Latter-day Saints Business College is definitely awesome for all types of students, there are so many different people that attend here and there are variations of learning approaches for everyone.

Am learning a lot
The teachers at this school not only know how thier stuff, but they know how to teach it to all types of students who want to learn. Even if you don't know the subject very well, if you desire to learn, they can teach you.
Am enjoying being here
The teachers are great, but the students are just as good, if not better! They are fun and have great activites for all types of students.
Bang for the buck
Its one of the least expensive schools in the state of Utah, and probably in the west. This truly is a great school where you can learn things about the world, and the things above this world.
Tips for prospective students
Be humble, willing, and wanting to learn. This is not just another school to go to. You need to have a desire to learn, but if you do have this desire you will be able to thrive.
Great for these types of students
Students who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (see Mormon.org for more information), those learning anything in the field of business, and those who are desiring to learn.

LDS Business College is perfect if you are looking for a small college to start off at if you need to establish good educational basics in your life. It is large enough that it will give you a feel for and prepare you for a 4 year college. It is small enough that your teachers know you and you will not get lost in the crowd.
Tips for prospective students
Come visit the school! I think that anyone who is looking for a small, personal school will love it!
Food and Dining
There is food very close to the school.
What to do for fun
Lots of outdoor activities.
Bang for the buck
Because it is a private school and owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, half of the tuition is covered by the school/donations.

As I prepare to graduate, the full cost of a 4 year college is what I fear the most when I leave the LDS Business College.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Because this is a school owned by a church classes are often started with a prayer.
Great for these types of students
Ones interested in a more personal learning style. Religious. Looking for a quieter education.
Greek Life
None.

Latter-day Saint Business College is just that, it has a diverse community of many, hundreds of countries and states that are represented. The LDS faith is 99% represented and there are over 50% Return Missionaries that are here. You don't have to go into Business to attend here, you just need the faith to be in a great, rich, spirit affected atmosphere!
Tips for prospective students
Get involved! Go to new student orientation, get to know all sorts of different types of people. Join the choir, go to the temple, attend your local church. Get to know the President of the college, he's a really neat guy! Join Mentors & Ambassadors, that will change your life.
Academic Rigor
Most of the classes are pretty easy, the deeper you get into your major, the harder it will become, of course!
Dorm Life
The dorms are... okay. It is an awesome way to get to know people, since they live right next to you. If possible at all, look for local housing instead. Both the guys and girls dorms are not impressive, make sure to get a bunch of quarters to do laundry.
Food and Dining
Lots of different place to eat. It's Salt Lake!! The taco stands are incredible, they are all over the city. Crown Burger, located adjacent to the BC; In n' out is a must, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, The Pie (located up by the U), Moochies.
What to do for fun
Shop at City Creek center, Gateway. Hike, Temple Square, etc.
Bang for the buck
The BC is amazing! If you have not drawn closer to God, Christ, the gospel, then you have taken the school for granted. Get involved!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
After new student orientation we hike to Ensign peak and wave a banner. Every Tuesday there is a Devotional & someone speaks about gospel matters to us, we dress professionally and take notes. Before class starts each day, there is a prayer that is said.
Great for these types of students
You don't have to major in Business to attend here!
Clubs and Activities
There are clubs and activities, basically any kind of club has the chance of getting started. There is now a Latin dance club, hip-hop club, Soccer Club, among many others.
Greek Life
Not here.
Campus Safety
I left my backpack in the Commons & came back 2 hours later and nothing was stolen from it! It is very safe and nothing bad happens.

Am enjoying being here
I love the smaller classes(max class size is 40). You get to know people so much faster and make so many more friends than at a larger school.
Bang for the buck
Most schools you will most likely need to take out a large loan to go to but not for here. If you get scholarships/work part time you probably wont need a loan at all.
Great for these types of students
This is a great college for kids who so well in smaller classes with more personal attention. You actually learn your teachers names and they learn your's. You're not just a number here.

Am learning a lot
After attending this college my first semester, I've learned a great deal on subjects such as the economy, computers, communicating, just to name a few. These skills make it more likely that I will find a great-paying job, as well as staying up-to-date with this ever-changing world. There are great instructors, along with fellow classmates, that will aid you if you are struggling with a certain concept, as well as the great tutors. I have found myself more educated on what's going on around me and owe it to this school.
Am enjoying being here
I love being here! There is no other school that I would rather be at, right now. I didn't get accepted to Brigham Young University--Provo, but I feel that this school is better suited for me; it has small classes (40 students max), it's in the capital of Utah, offers great career workshops, everyone is friendly, the temple is only a couple of blocks away, and the instructors are willing to go that extra mile for you.
Bang for the buck
LDSBC only costs $2800 a year, whereas most colleges are charging five-figures a semester. Then there's the fact that one receives great instruction on a subject, as well as these beneficial career workshops--which I believe that we should pay for, since they seem to give us an edge.
Tips for prospective students
To you prospective students out there, have your FAFSA done by the time you've graduated because you could get everything taken care of quickly and won't have to wait along with everyone else. Also, make sure that you meet your high school's requirements to graduate because you could receive $500 extra. Lastly, make sure that you bring clothes that will keep you warm through the cold winter, especially if you're from a warm-weather climate like me. Take a tour of the school and I can almost guarantee you'll enjoy your time here.
Great for these types of students
LDSBC is great for people that want to be respected, have fun, make great friends, save money, and get a great education. I think that this applies to everyone, so this should be the perfect school for any type of student to attend.

Will learn a lot
I haven't yet attended, but when I was looking at the class list, there were so many amazing classes that were specific to each major, and classes for everyone to take. There was a wide variety of classes--not very many fun electives, but definitely some great learning opportunities. Also, just by talking to some of the staff, I can tell how dedicated they are and I'm very excited to go there.
Will enjoy being here
Although I wish they had more fun electives, I think the classes they have will be very enjoyable. I'm also excited to be around so many students with the same beliefs and values as me. :)
Bang for the buck
The tuition is such a great price compared to pretty much every other college. There are lots of colleges whose tuition is $10,000 or more per semester! However, at LDSBC, the tuition is less than $5,000 for a full year. Plus, it teaches marketable skills for people who want to earn more money while they're in college.
Tips for prospective students
1) Make your essays original/creative when you apply.
2) Make sure you know what you want from your college experience before you make a final decision.
3) Take initiative to call/e-mail the school and find out everything you can!
Great for these types of students
This college is for people who want to be surrounded with other people who have high values/standards and who want marketable skills. My admissions counselor told me that it's also a good place for people who don't necessarily know what they want to do yet--a good place to find yourself.

Am learning a lot
The Latter-day Saints Business College is amazing because the teachers there make all the difference. In every class my teachers have memorized and know every student in the class. I am called by name and they are willing to make time to talk to me. What is great is that they remember what we talked about. It helps motivate me to be the best student I can be in my classes
Am enjoying being here
I really love attending the school. The atmosphere and people are great! The layout of the school is very simple and easy to understand. There is a lot of fun things to do around the campus for dating and personal downtime. The only downside is that there is a lot of construction work going on around the school building which can be a little confusing and annoying.
Bang for the buck
The costs of attending this school is low. I personally will not have to take out any loans while attending the LDSBC because of it's low tuition costs. It is very relieving and enjoyable to have full range of my income for whatever I should desire.
Tips for prospective students
Taking a tour of the campus could help you to really see what the school is all about. The tours are conducted by students themselves who are within the Mentor and Ambassador Program so you could the inside scoop and perspective from those who are themselves attending school there.
Great for these types of students
If you like to get involved then you should definitely attend this school. There are so many different ways you can get involved within the school. Anyone from any level or degree of personality can get involved in a positive and meaningful way. Whether you have ever had any past school involvement or not you will not feel swamped or lost on how to participate. It also a really good place to go for out-of-country students. More than half of the student population are not from North America. Very diverse place.
