About BYU

The mission of Brigham Young University--founded, supported, and guided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints--is to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life. That assistance should provide a period of intensive learning in a stimulating setting where a commitment to excellence is expected and the full realization of human potential is pursued.

All instruction, programs, and services at BYU, including a wide variety of extracurricular experiences, should make their own contribution toward the balanced development of the total person. Such a broadly prepared individual will not only be capable of meeting personal challenge and change but will also bring strength to others in the tasks of home and family life, social relationships, civic duty, and service to mankind.

The university is supported by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) and has branch campuses in Laie, Hawaii, and Rexburg, Idaho. It is composed of eight colleges, the J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott School of Management, the J. Reuben Clark Law School, the David O. McKay School of Education, and the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies. Master’s degree programs are available in most areas of study, and doctoral degrees are offered in more than 50 programs. Important research facilities include laboratories for atomic, plasma, and condensed matter physics. The university is also the site of the Ezra Taft Benson Agriculture and Food Institute and the Center for Family History and Genealogy. Total enrollment is approximately 29,000.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

I really like attending Brigham Young University. The college is clean, and is very fair to the academic system. However, I sometimes do not like the fact that there is not a wide diversity of students here. Mostly everyone is a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which definitely has its pros and cons if you think about it.

Former Student - Last Attended 2005

Overall Rating

BYU is a great place to get a good education in a safe, clean atmosphere. If you're LDS, it will fit perfectly into the standards that you hold, if you're not, it will lack the typical college party/social atmosphere. Provo is a pretty standard town with nothing exciting happening, but there are a lot of outdoor activities nearby.
