  • 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…

    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.

    It is good food, and also takes food allergies/intolerances/special dietary needs into account.

    BYU has good dinning resources. You have a good court, a buffet style dinning area, a cafe in the museum of art, and jamba juice around campus. There are a lot of options and I almost forgot a classic grill and ice cream shop at the creamery on ninth. All these places are really good and if students have a meal plan they could eat there and pay for it with there meal plan. They have really good prices too.

    Whether you go to the canon center, the school dining hall, or the lunch room there are a variety of foods for your choosing. Personally my favorite is Chik-Fil-A and Subway! Also people are always giving out food for surveys when your running low on cash.

    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.

    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.
