    they have some of the best on campus food i know of. you also get the y creamery to grab groceries and get great ice cream and fries. the neighboring cities have plenty of food choices from fast food to casual sit down restaurants to full on sit down restaurants to high end dining. they also have a lot of foreign food from many cultures.

    I have only ever eaten in the WILK but they have a great variety of food. There are also vending machines all over campus that have the Creamery's ice cream, sandwiches, fruits and veggies, bagels, and more.

    Plenty of options for eating around here on and off campus, and most of it is pretty economical.

    Our food court has: Chick Fil'a, Taco Bell, Hawaiian Grill, Subway, L&T Salad and Soup. We have several cafes in different buildings on campus, you can order burgers, ice cream and such from the BYU creamery, as well as buy your groceries there. A warning however, groceries at the creamery are overpriced, but you can save tax anywhere on campus by using your ID card.

    they don't have any greek life or societies so if you are looking into being in a frat or a sorority you are at the wrong place. this school is about learning and not about partying hard.

    we don't have typical sororities and fraternities, but a am a member of byu's phi eta sigma which is an honor society. there are monthly activities and lots of scholarship opportunities for members. it is a really neat thing to be a part of.

    There are not any fraternities or sororities affiliated with Brigham Young University, but every student here will live within the boundaries of a ward, where there will be plenty of opportunities to make friends, network with other students, and participate in some great and exciting opportunities. In my ward, we are always having activities at least twice a week, and this provides fun opportunities to take a break from your studies and make some lasting memories with friends who share the same values and initiatives as you do.

    None. Assuming you're a member of the LDS church, most of your opportunities to meet people are through your ward and church services. Otherwise it's through classes or clubs.
