So I know I told you guys that I was applying for Winter 2011 at BYU (hope I get in!)  But I was considering doing the Visiting Student program and coming for the Summer term.

So my question is: Would you recommend it? I was thinking of trying to get into a religion class or something. If I can get in that is. 

I was wondering if any of you had stayed for the summer term and how the campus is different during that time of year, if there are still a lot of people on campus and such.

Or would you recommend maybe doing the Independent study instead and stick to my hometown's summer school?

Thanks for your input!


  1. I Say DO IT!! :) I've been at BYU the past two summers. I highly recommend it! It's definitely very different from fall and winter. Summer evenings on campus are honestly the best. During the day it's a little bit insane because there are typically a few thousand EFY (basically, mormon summer camp) kids walking around. But there are not nearly as many students around, so I felt like I got to know the campus way better before I was all of a sudden 1 person in a crowd of nearly 30,000!

    Also, if you come out for summer, and just stay out here through the fall, it will give you a great chance to get settled in an apartment and find a good job. Jobs are more difficult to come by in January because there isn't as much turnover during the year. :) Feel free to email me if you have ANY more questions at all!! I"ll tell you all about it! :D

  2. My mom went to BYU! And she loved it, but I'm not sure on the details :)

  3. I got your comment. I wasn't actually going to school during the summers I lived there, I was working with the dorm housing/efy. I started there the fall after I graduated. I don't really know timing as far as getting in for summer, but you should be just fine!! I wish I would be here, and we could be face-friends instead of just internet friends! :) you can email me at and we can chat!

  4. My sister started in the summer - there are definitely less people there! Good luck with your decision1

  5. GUESS WHAT. I don't know really if this is how it works, but I'm going to be a Y group leader for spring/summer term and that means I take new students around campus -- which means I might just be able to meet you this summer if you came!! We'll have to figure this out if you do, or if that's even what I do - haha.

    But I'd have to say...I hear campus is fun spring/summer terms - I've never done it before, but I'm taking spring classes this year and will let you know!!

  6. I'm so glad you led me to Steoffrey Language by the way...I'd never head of them :)

  7. I've never spent summer here, but I hear it's a blast!


Leave some love! (I'd love if you did)
