                           OUTSTANDING STUDENT BODY
                           BYU students arrive with superb preparation. The entering class has an average
                           high school GPA of 3.76 (on a 4.0 scale) and an average ACT score that ranks in
                           the 89th percentile nationally. The University consistently places in the top 20
                           for enrollment of National Merit Scholars. In addition to their academic excel-
                           lence, students bring and share high values and ideals. Students come to BYU
                           from all 50 states and more than 130 countries, bringing many international
                           cultures and experiences to the campus.

                           Nearly half of these scholars have lived outside the United States, and three-
                           fourths are fluent in at least two languages. The variety of cultures and back-
                           grounds, coupled with an institutional commitment to the gospel of Jesus
                           Christ, adds to an already rich academic experience that challenges the mind
                           while feeding the spirit.

                           INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF LEARNING
                           BYU has been selected as a Center for International Business Education
                           Research (CIBER), a program designated to promote the competitiveness of
                           United States business through an integrated international curriculum, faculty
                           and student international research and outreach programs. BYU’s David M.
                           Kennedy Center for International Studies provides support to colleges and
                           departments in pursuing their international interests.

                           BYU runs the largest study abroad program in the United States, with satellite
                           centers in London, Jerusalem, and Paris, as well as more than 20 other sites. The
                           Institute of International Education ranks BYU as the number one university in
                           the US to offer students study abroad opportunities; nearly 2,000 students take
                           advantage of more than 50 BYU study abroad programs yearly. BYU’s motto is
                           “The World is Our Campus.”

  U.S. News and World Report gave BYU high marks in several categories in its 2002 “America’s Best Colleges” issue, ranking BYU
  in the second tier in the category of “Best National Universities,” 30th in the “Great Schools at Great Prices” among national
  universities with doctoral programs and among the top 10 with the least student-incurred debt.

  In U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Graduate Schools” issue, BYU’s Marriott School of Management ranked 29th in the
  nation, while in the “America’s Best Colleges” issue the School’s business program ranked 38th. In The Wall Street Journal’s
  2003 ranking of top business schools worldwide, BYU’s business school moved from 38th to 26th. When U. S. News and World
  Report ranked national graduate programs in March 2002, the J. Reuben Clark Law School was ranked 37th among the top 50
  law schools in the nation.

  BYU College of Nursing graduates are consistently among the top 10 percent in the country with student pass rate in the
  National Council Licensure Examination to become registered nurses, according to the NCLEX Report. Six BYU students were
  recently awarded scholarship money by the National Science Foundation. According to NSF, BYU ranks 29th out of more than
  2,000 universities in the number of graduate students who go on to receive science and engineering doctorates.

  Ranked among the top 50 of Yahoo! Internet Life’s “America’s Most Wired Colleges,” BYU has 100 percent of its dorms and
  60 percent of its classrooms wired for the Internet. BYU students have access to a wide range of technology products, ser-
  vices and support through the use of on-campus Ethernet connections and Technology Enhanced Classrooms (TEC Rooms).
  The law and business schools require students to own laptops. Prospective and current students have access to electronic
  application for admission, on-line transcripts, registration, and course schedules. BYU’s supercomputing facility houses four
  supercomputers with a total of 460 processors, 456 gigabytes of memory and 22 terabytes of hard disk storage space. About
  90 faculty members and 250 students using the supercomputers can process in days what would have previously taken a year.
  Funded by the University and donors, BYU’s supercomputers are available at no cost to students and faculty members cam-
  pus wide for projects such as 3-D visualization, molecular modeling, linguistics modeling, satellite visualization and medical
  imaging. The University also has a million-dollar virtual reality theater to enhance the output of much of the work done on

  BYU exists to provide a university education in an atmosphere
  consistent with the principles of the Church of Jesus Christ. This
  environment is preserved through adherence to a code of conduct
  called the Honor Code that reflects those ideals. Initiated by stu-
  dents in 1949, the Honor Code emphasizes being honest, living
  a chaste and virtuous life, abstaining from alcohol and tobacco,
  using clean language and other values encompassed in the doc-
  trines of the Church. The code is supplemented by additional
  guidelines on dress, grooming and housing. Students and faculty
  are attracted by the opportunity to study and work among those
  who share their faith and standards. In a survey of BYU alumni, 74
  percent cited their desire to “obtain a spiritual, religiously based
  education” as a very important or extremely important factor in
  their decision to attend BYU.
