twoferThe petty jealousy that polls such this generate among the
kids on the hill is laughable.btw, I've had the B&D dollar
burger; it's okay, but nothing to write home about, unless you're a
struggling student trying to survive on Ramen Noodles. I'd have picked the
Pie Pizzaria's Calzone myself.
@ UteanymousIt's obviously escaped you that BYU students made
up the vast majority of the votes on this poll. I imagine news of this poll
made its way around to many different LDS circles through social media, and that
led to schools like BYU-I getting on the list. That in itself is hilarious
because BYU-I is not known for either of the criteria that this list claims.
I'm not upset that Utah or Oregon or whoever isn't on the list.
I'm simply pointing out to all the people here patting themselves on the
back that they need to come back to Earth. This poll is extremely weak and
shallow journalism.Also, B&D's dollar burger Tuesdays
deserves its spot on the list.
SLC gal"Is that why people go there for a "matrimony
degree"?"Finding a hot, brainiac to marry is just one of the
many, many advantages of attending BYU.That's where I found
twoferIt's obviously escaped you, but BYU students weren't
the only students who voted in the survey. USC, UCLA, and Stanford were all
represented in the survey, so don't blame BYU because Arizona, Oregon and
Utah weren't.The "Best of" list for Utah is quite
telling however:#1 - Ample green space#2 - The ASUU
"hookup card"#3 - B&D's dollar burger Tuesdayshmmm
@ UteanymousI says that BYU students should visit some other
campuses sometime. Arizona and Oregon are two schools that stand out in my
twofer"Congrats to the BYU students for thinking so highly of
themselves."Actually, the correct interpretation would be that
BYU students think highly of their classmates!Of course, what does
that say about Utah students?
Is that why people go there for a "matrimony degree"?
From the article published by Business Insider, "Our friends at College
Prowler created an exclusive list of American schools where the students are
both hot and smart. College Prowler ranks schools based on input from real
students at the schools."Congrats to the BYU students for
thinking so highly of themselves.
I attended three universities and taught at one. BYU wins hands down.
@ Wally West. Thinking outside the box is partially what BYU got the
"brains" award for! But please be grateful anyway!
Number 1 University in the Nation - Clean and Sober. Number 1 University in the
Nation - Hot and Smart.Hmmm....Makes me think that the two are definitely
connected, wouldn't you say?
D-Ruck, I think you got confused at where you were at. You must have been
walking across campus at the U.
I don't have any idea about their level of intelligence but back in the day
(last century) Utah State had the best looking students in the galaxy. Even the
girls working at McDonalds were hot.Totally agree with m.g. scott. A
smart woman with half her looks hidden behind a book is much prettier than an
@ Mountanman 1:44 p.m. March 21& we are thankful we are able to
think outside the box.
Awesome...It's very apparent to anyone who has spent time regularly on
BYU's campus recently (me) that the author of this ranking didn't
bother to come to BYU ;)The majority of students here are only hot
when they run several miles in July and August.
"Silly article. Silly comments."and yet you are here reading
and commentingThe article is complimentary
Some of you obviously would never fit in at BYU...lol
To Buford Buckley,Yours being one them.
A lot of the women at BYU think Tyler Haws is hot. Didn't you think he was
hot when you were watching the game joseywales?
It's the health code that is most often adhered to that attributes to the
BYU girls are hotter. Utah girls are cooler. Tough dilemma.
Rockwell"Well deserved #1 pick and interesting list, but they
missed one: Southern Virginia University"Amen that!
I'm not sure who this study helps. It'll serve to boost the egos of
those attending BYU and will diminish those who attend BYU but who have
self-image problems. Let goodness speak for itself and not force this to become
a beauty contest.Having said that it's interesting to see how
outsiders view things differently. BYU students are capable, mature (much of
the time), and motivated to work hard at school and church. Those things
combined will put on an air of confidence, which will motivate those students to
want to be the best they can.
Silly article. Silly comments.
Lew Scannon- Interesting to me that your comment was allowed, when last night I
said roughly the same thing, only I mentioned that while watching the televised
basketball game tuesday evening, that I didn't seem to think that I agreed
with the results of this study based on what I saw on tv. But, I do agree with
you, in fact, I would say that if they evaluated UVU you would find that at
least the women there, are as hot as they come.
Surely not the most scientific study,but it's good publicity for BYU and
My wife went to BYU-Idaho! Ranked #16! And a hottie she is.
As some of you younger guys get older, you are going to realize just how
appealing and attractive women who are smart can be as companions and wives.
Women see the value of smart men early, but it takes men maturing a little to
realize that the physically beautiful woman is only half the package, and in the
end not the most important half.
"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of those who publish good
tidings, who saith unto Zion, thy God reigneth". Possible the fulfillment of
As a graduate of BYU, I will accept that as a nice compliment. I
was once standing in line and struck up a conversation with a guy. This was in
the east and when this guy found out I had gone to BYU he remarked that he had
been on campus and that it was a "spectacularly good looking school."
He didn't mean the buildings. He couldn't believe how good looking
the studentbody was. Inner beauty does a lot for outer beauty.
Aside from the fact that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, what in the world
does "hotness" have to do with an educational institution, much less a
religiously sponsored one that is supposed to focus on internal goodness rather
than external appearance? (1 Sam. 16:7) Which makes one wonder why the DN
would even publish this article.
Bob, Mountainman just owned you.
I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I was walking across BYU campus
the other day and couldn't help thinking how many more homely and
overweight students there are now compared to when I was a student. Maybe memory
dims with age, or maybe the higher academic standards have weeded out many of
the popular B-students who used to be admitted. No way to measure this, of
course. Just a personal observation.
Well deserved #1 pick and interesting list, but they missed one:Southern Virginia University
Nice people. Respectful people. People of faith. Smart people. Apparently good
on the eyes too. And looky here. The haters still coming out of the woodwork.
Some people just can't win.
@ Bob A. Bohey. Need I remind you that this is not necessarily the opinion of
BYU students themselves but outside observers? Arrogance and hubris come from
self adulation not from others!
Hubris and arrogance.
Flattering article.Work on the inner bias and you'd have a
Inner beauty leaks!(Shows up on the outside.)
As I recall, the BYU honor code doesn't allow the students to be hot.
A testiment to the faith.
Gotta luv it!BYU ranked #1 for students who are both hot and
smart!------BYU Idaho ranked #16
