  • Aug-21-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    When it comes to the Creamery, my sister was able to get all the food she needed, but the quality of certain products weren't that great. I wouldn't know about the food from the dining hall, though.

    Cannon Center is pretty good, but not central and not cheap. In the WILK, there's quite a few restaurants--Taco Bell, a wrap place, a pizza place, Chik-filA, and a few others.

    There aren't that many options, and after awhile they get old, but they did just add chick-file, so that is where you will find me now.

    The food here is good. I mean, it is college campus food so it is not exactly fine dining. However, for starving college students the available options are more than adequate. There is the Cougareat with it's chain of stores ranging from Taco Bell to Subway to Chick Fill-A. There are other dining options that are more formal that can be found on campus as well. At the edge of campus is a very good Buffet place called the Cannon Center.

    I will be in New Heritage Halls, so I don't need a meal plan. I get to cook for myself. I did eat at the Cannon Center while I was visiting though, and the food is pretty good. It seemed like there was a lot to offer.

    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.

    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.
