  • Mar-04-2015 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    When I stayed in the dorm for a week, I also ate with a meal plan. Such good food! I loved that there was buffet-style food for every meal we ate there, with drinks, salad, and dessert all included. The food was always excellent. I have no complaints!

    There are so many places you can eat! They even have a little Frechetta pizza place where you can get 8 pizzas! Honestly, that might have been one of the major selling points for me, I love my pizza. I wouldn't recommend eating there every day, because, well, pizza everyday isn't all that healthy for you or your wallet, and if you don't like pizza, there is a Subway, Taco Bell, even a little mini-mart thing.

    The food on campus is excellent. There are so many options - both fast food and healthier choices. The BYU app is super helpful for finding food - you can see menus, find nearby vending machines, keep track of your dining $, and even find FREE food.

    The CougarEat offers several different restaurants such as Subway and Scoreboard Grill, and they also have the Cannon Center for freshmen living in the dorms, and their food is amazing. I've always been satisfied with the food offered on campus.

    They serve good, quality food on campus at many locations including the Cannon Center which is an all you can eat buffet with just about every type of food you could want. On campus and just off of campus you have access to a large variety of restaurants. They have several small grocery stores on campus if you prefer to prepare your own meals.

    The food court on campus is good, but the restaurants around the city are amazing. As a result of having had so many students travel internationally, authentic international restaurants thrive. Whatever you are in the mood for, you can find it.

    BYU has many on-campus restaurants that have very tasty food with relatively low prices. BYU also has campus grocery stores as well as rather delicious vending machines. Many dorms and apartments come with kitchens but overall, there are many options for food.

    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.
