Great family environment. No just a university. You can go can bowling, visit the Bean or art museum, attend a sports event, shop at the large gift shop, eat at the cafeteria, attend a program at the Marriott center, and plenty of visitor parking. Least of all don't forget to go by the creamery and try out the ice cream,... More

Nice campus, loads of well-dressed and well-scrubbed Mormon kids walking around. You won't find dirty dreadlocks and faux emo kids rolling around here! It's a lovely campus, and if you can take the golf cart tour, it's worth it.

Impressive, yet friendly. BYU Is an outstanding university with a home town feel. The open campus is beautiful. The students are smart and inviting. We had a fun visit.

As always BYU is constantly changing. The new visitors lot is much larger, instead of driving around the lot several times looking for a spot, there were several open. The exhibits at the art museum was based on national parks and had beautiful pieces. There is also a great rainbow as you enter the museum. The bookstores staff were very... More

I went down to Utah for a wedding, afterwards I met a friend who attends BYU and she showed me around campus. As a Canadian our universities all (or mostly) have at least one bar in them (drinking age is 18 here). We started off at their "bar" but it was a "Soda Bar" this amused me greatly, the young...

Free to the public and so helpful when you want to do research, convert your old photos to digital, access genealogical records, and find out who you really are.

Had the opportunity to spend a few hours strolling around the campus..... beautiful landscaping and walking paths throughout. Simply amazing place to visit including "Botany Pond." Worth going by just to explore and meander around.

We took a free riding tour of the campus, with student guide Cameron. The campus was expansive and very well-maintained, with more construction underway. We are quite familiar with university campuses and asked Cameron many substantive questions, to which he had all the answers while offering even more information. The student dining hall and free museums were all high-quality facilities,... More
