Scholarships: Merit based scholarships are automatic--as long as you turn in the application to be considered. If your GPA hits a certain level, you're guaranteed financial aid. There are tons of alumni group scholarships and department specific scholarships too.

Off-Campus Dining: J-Dawgs and India Palace are both gems--and both near campus. There's a lot of fast food too.

Local Atmosphere: I struggled to live in Provo--it's suffocating sometimes. But thankfully Salt Lake is not that far away.

Drug Safety: BYU is a dry campus. Both alcohol use and drug use are against the honor code.
