BEGIN BYU Stats | Corina's Corner

BYU Stats

Since I blogged while I should have been working on one of my first big college papers, I think it is fitting that I blog right now, while I should be working on my last big college paper. That's right. My last ever college paper is due tomorrow. In fact, not just my last college paper, but pretty much my last college assignment ever.

While it is very exciting that I am very close to graduating, it is a little bit disappointing that I am still just as much of a procrastinator as I was 4 years ago, almost to the day. Among the many things I did learn in the last 4 years apparently, ridding myself of that habit wasn't one of them. Oh well. Maybe in the next 4 years.

I feel like I have been in college and going to school for eternity, but at the same time I feel like I haven't been in this phase of my life for very long, only 4 short years. I'm so happy that I got to go to BYU with all of the many wonderful, talented, smart (VERY smart!) people. Part of me wishes I could write a letter to everyone who did something thoughtful, meaningful, or encouraging for me in the last 4 years, but I know I would surely leave someone out accidentally (or procrastinate writing the letters, until it never happened). So in a different effort to find some sort of closure I have figured out some of MyBYU Stats. 

While at BYU I have:

  • Had 12 roommates (I thought this would be higher but here they are: Tara, Chelsea, Jamie, Jordan, Kaylee, Cathryn, Rachel, Sophia, Hannah, Lindsay, Emma, and lastly and most importantly Jordan)
  • Lived in 8 different houses, apartments, or dorms
  • Been in 8 wards, 5 single wards and 3 family wards
  • Taken 69 classes (163.5 credits), my heaviest load being 16.5 credits, which I did twice
  • Taken 4, 4 credit classes, 34, 3 credit classes, 14, 2 credit classes, 4, 1 credit classes, and 12, .5 credit classes
  • Taken classes during 6 terms, and 8 semesters (and can without a doubt say that Summers are my favorite time in Provo)
  • Paid $24,594 in tuition
  • Paid the Testing Center for 10 late fees (9, $5 fees and 1, $7 fee) and only during my Freshman year (then I learned that it was a waste of money and that I usually didn't do any better than I would have taking it 1 day earlier)
  • Got 44 A's, or A-'s 
  • Had to re-take 1 class where I got a D+ (and can safely say I still don't really like Linear Algebra)
  • Cried after 100% of all Chemistry tests (and 60% of all Math tests)
  • Made 39 Pandora Stations
  • Studied on every floor of the Library
  • Gone to 20 BYU football games
  • Bowled at the BYU bowling alley 5 times
  • Had 3 on-campus jobs
  • Tried out 2 majors (not at the same time)
  • Went on 1 Study Abroad (and loved every minute of it)
  • Went to 2 sessions of General Conference
  • Had 4 BYU ID cards
  • Celebrated 3 (1 more in a few weeks) birthdays, so 4 by the time I graduate
  • and met and married my 1 true love

It's been a good ride! Thanks BYU and thanks even more BYU friends. You've been great.


  1. i love this post! you're so close to graduating! hooray! sometimes it seems like 2008 really wasn't that long ago, but then i think about all the things that have happened since then and i realize that it was seriously FOREVER ago! congrats on almost being done!

  2. How exciting! What a great way to wrap up your college experience. And how did you keep track of all those things?? Some of those I would never be able to count up.

  3. Sometimes, I wish we could go back to those days. We had so much fun. I'm proud of you Corina! You have definitely worked hard and I'm so impressed by everything you have accomplished.

  4. loved this, such a cute idea.
    however the heck you managed to obtain that info, you are a genius.
    i've definitely paid the testing center more money than that.
    and had probably double the amount of idea cards excited and so jealous!


  5. I am so proud of you Corina. I always knew you would finish college, love your major, marry the perfect man, and make all the sacrifice worth while. You are an extraordinary granddaughter. I love you so much!

  6. What a fun post! And I'm with you 100% on the not-liking-linear-algebra thing. It was the one class that I dropped halfway through the semester. I could probably safely say that it was the class that made me drop the math major.

  7. I love this! I'm definitely going to copy you on this. Congrats on graduating!
