I'd say the size of the school is just right, but then I meet people, in another place, and they're also from BYU and I've never even seen them before. My bad for practically living in the HFAC (^^; ). lol It is definately in a "college town," but it's beautiful. Plenty of things to do, at school and in Provo. I wouldn't say that there's too much school pride, but it does get a little irksome when I want to park at my complex but the football fans have taken over. Yeah, that really stinks. The whole BYU vs the U is way overrated. Needless to say I'm not much of a sports fan. The walk to school is usually nice except for the blizzard-like conditions. lol. It is Utah, and we are next to mountains. Ah the lovely mountains.
Hahah, study? While as most of my classes form around art and the HFAC, I know people that live at the library! One time I even stayed there til 1am because of a test that week. Yes, there is a lot of studying at BYU. College might be kicks and giggles for some people, but the rest of us have to study hard to get through to life. There will always be that one professor that you totally loathe, and you think they do too, but the simple fact is that sometimes you will have a conflict of interest, but you can usually tell yourself that "this too will pass" because you won't have that teacher again if you can help it. Just think of the brighter side of your class and get through it will all gusto! I'm a visual arts major (non-specific at this point), so it is very competitive, in my opinion. Especially the animation majors, that are my friends. That is one of the hardest majors to accomplish, because you must have drive, endurance, and patience. lol
Yes, BYU is run by LDS people. It is very rare that I meet someone on-campus that isn't. And when I do it's fun to talk to them, but usually it's about classes or some such thing.
