I have visited many college and university campuses. This one is different. We visited 4 days mid week during winter term. Saw lots and lots of students, faculty, and staff. Tobacco free campus. Only once did we hear a swear word, and it slipped out from a speaker from away who was giving a lecture. Saw tons of smiles. Monty... More

Went up on campus in March and it was a beautiful spring day. They were planting flowers when it is usually snowing. I wanted to see the new Benson science building. It was easy to park in visitor parking and walk across campus. The building is beautiful. So much light and glass. It is a great addition to campus. I... More

Nothing to dislike other than the fact that I didn't have the grades to get in here, but that didn't stop me from taking advantage of all the sporting event as a spectator or participant, the museum, special events like the U.S. Ameteur Ballroom Dancesport Championship(that i once competed for years and now watch), etc.

This is where most things are happening in Provo. The top sports, dance, and music events are usually here. The campus has been called the Disneyland of college campuses as it is so beautifully groomed. Great place to go to school, and to visit.

BYU is a travel destination in itself, with multiple visitable museums--obvious ones include the art museum, small enough to visit easily, with many excellent features; the observatory; the Bean museum--again small enough for children not to get too tired (lots of animals, but beware if your youngsters are sensitive--most are arranged in predators-attacking-prey and are very graphic); but don't forget...

A visit to this lovely campus of the LDS university was very enjoyable. We enjoyed the bookstore, eating with choices of many cuisines and the clean and friendly campus in general.

BYU boasts, in addition to numerous excellent athletic teams, several top class museums; the Bean Life Science Museum (recently renovated), the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, the Museum of Paleontology, the Museum of Art, and the Planetarium are all well worth the visit. Most are geared to children with hands-on exhibits. There is also a large family history center as... More

There was nothing to dislike. There was an incredible amount of traffic and the hotel was full that visit, yet the hotel and staff were up to treating each request from each guest as though they were the only guest there. Met several people we knew from different States as well.

Check the website for happenings at the fine arts center, museum, family history library and more... Surprisingly you could spend a tourist day here that has nothing to do with being in school!

If you love to visit gardens and arboretuns you must visit the Brigham Young University one, in Provo (Utah). It is a very well projected arboretum in the slope of the hill that leads to the university buildings. You could see tematic gardens focused on local plants althought most of the trees are not Utah's native and some of them... More
