BYU is unlike other universities.Not so brightAccounting
BYU is unlike other universities. I am a transferred to BYU from Pima Community College several years ago and am now studying in the accounting undergraduate program. I have found that other reviews are perhaps outdated and/or inaccurate. For sure BYU is unlike other universities as it is a private university owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Those who are not members of the church will find that the church has a very strong presence on campus. Some non-member students enjoy this some do not - to each their own.

As far as accounting goes, BYU is one of the best colleges in the nation to study accounting. The quality of the faculty and courses is superb. Their many opportunities for internships and employment all around the world. Provo was recently named the most business friendly city in the U.S., so opportunities for experience locally are abundant. As far as reputation goes, BYU is recruited by and has a strong reputation among all big four firms as well as many fortune 50 firms.

The accounting program is grueling and hard, do not expect an easy way through. The group work provides real world experiences and helps to prepare students for their careers. Job placement is near 100 percent, better than most any other undergraduate and graduate program in the country.

It is true that some students and even perhaps faculty are a little closed minded as they live in somewhat of a bubble. It has been my experience that this is pretty much true any where, however, perhaps more evident at BYU because of the religious influence. As for the surrounding area. Some complain about Provo, sure it is not New York City. If you are active in the outdoors though there is no better place. There are hundreds of mountain biking trails within biking distance of campus. There is world class rock climbing 3 minutes away up Provo canyon. There are endless miles of wilderness to camp and hike. There are excellent urban trails for long boarding and running. There is a strong cycling community and lots of racing. There is a local water park and for anything more urbana Salt Lake is only 30 min. away. Park City is also close by with the best snow on earth. When folks say Provo is boring, all I can think is that those people must be pretty boring themselves.

I loved my time at BYU.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I loved my time at BYU. What you find there will be in large part contributed to your attitude.
If you go there looking for great people and a good time you will most likely find it. Sure there are people who are negative but there will people like that anywhere. Of course there are negative things but you have to seek them out more so at BYU.

I would recommend BYU to anyone who is looking for a college experience filled with great people in a clean environment and great teachers.

If you aren't a social type you might say people at BYU didn't reach out to me. But that would be the case at any school you attended. It's what you make of it. Being from Southern California I loved my time at BYU. I'd do it again if given the opportunity in a heart beat.
