Reviews Dorm Life

  • Dorm life is a blast, it's BYU so of course the dorms are segregated, boys in one building and girls in another. However there's so many opportunities to meet people…

    We could use some additional options on-campus, but there are tons of options close to campus for dining!

    There is always great food available wherever you are on campus. Not only is there a wide variety of options in BYU's Cougar Eat, but there is also the Cannon Center buffet, the Wall, and many other delicious places to get some grub. One of the most popular places for students on campus is the Jamba Juice located in the Wilkinson Center.

    The ice cream is really good here, and there are a few good places on campus, but otherwise the food isn't that great.

    BYU ice cream and BYU brownies, am I right? BYU offers so many good food items, from sandwiches to Graham Canyon ice cream, to the beloved chocolate milk. There are plenty of meal plan options if you need one, places to eat on campus that are pretty cheap, and the most beautiful, happiness filled creameries on the planet. Their catering services are marvelous and tasty, and BYU Food to Go is the place for parties and events. I love me some BYU food!

    There are many food choices on campus and vending machines are everywhere (they sell sandwiches and other food in addition to drinks and snacks). There aren't many dining places off of campus (hunt around and you can find some) that are close by.

    There is a food court in the Wilkinson Student Center that contains many restaurants beloved by college students, including Chick-fil-A, Papa John's, and Subway. BYU also produces and sells its own ice cream and pastries. There are vending machines scattered around campus, and the third floor in the library is a Snack Zone for those who crave nourishment while studying. A BYU-owned and operated grocery store is also on campus and provides groceries and to-go food items such as sandwiches and strawberry parfaits. There are many additional restaurants in the Provo-Orem area as well if students desire to escape campus for a short time.

    The Canon Commons is a really great place to go if you want a lot of variety and good quality of food for a normal price. The Cougareat has several chain restaurants including Taco Bell, Subway, Papa Johns, and Chick-fil-A to pick from, as well as several other eating places throughout campus. The food quality is pretty decent for the price.

    Life as a Classical Studies major at BYU Id phenomenal. You get to develop close relationships with each of your professors and learn so many things about history. All of the students are super supportive, and there's even a free tutoring service offered from more advanced students to first year students. We also have a room in the library called the Ancient Studies Room where everyone studying an ancient lanuage can form study groups and collaborate on harder homework assignments. All in all, its a great place to be a Classics major.

    We like Greek yogurt and Greek food... I don't think we have any frats or sororities... because we're all children of God and we're all brothers and sisters. So sorry, but not sorry about that :)

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    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.
