    The BYU Cougareat provides a good choice of what to eat. If you need to quickly grab something, vending machines are in each building. The food in the vending machines range from healthy fruit cups and vegetable bowls to microwavable mini pizzas and frozen burritos.

    The Cannon Center is fantastic, but the Morris Center... Not so much.

    I cooked all my own food which meant I purchased from a grocery store. But from what I saw and heard from friends there are more than enough on campus food options.

    Food is about average but you get what you put in. You can find whatever you want or need here.

    There are quite a few on-campus options for food but they can turn out to be really expensive if they are your only option.

    There's plenty of food on and off campus. The cafeteria food gets old pretty quick but it's food. There is a lot of fast food right around campus that I usually eat at such as Chick-fil-a and Subway.

    The food at the Canon Center can get a little dull after eating there so often. But! The Cougareat, which is the food court in the Wilkinson Center, just added Chick-Fil-A and also has Subway, Taco Bell as well as healthy alternatives for more health conscientious students.

    The University's meal plans are rather expensive for what they offer and the money is not refundable. If you don't use it all, you lose it. I recommend housing with a kitchen included so you can do your own cooking.

    At the cougar eat there are a variety of things to eat including: Taco Bell, Subway, Chic-fil-a, Teriyaki sticks, among many others. Apart from the traditional fast food places there is a small grocery store like corner in cougar eat where you can buy yogurt, bagels, hot dogs, ect. if fast food doesn't fit your fancy. There is also the Cannon Center cafeteria where many different types of meals are prepared for every meal time to satisfy any type of appetite. Prices are reasonable and the food is good. If food on campus doesn't satisfy, there are plenty more options off campus, but close by.

    Sadly, there is no greek life, but your ward becomes just the same as if you were in a sorority/fraternity.

    BYU is a private University of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints so there are no fraternities or sororities on campus.

    They teach Greek! But the closest thing we have to greek life or brotherhood there are the clubs and our faith. Other than that, not much greek life.
