Students and student-athletes come from all over the world to study and compete at Brigham Young University. Nearly 150 years after its humble beginnings, this church-sponsored institution has become one of the largest private universities in the United States. Nestled at the foot of the towering Wasatch Mountains in Provo, Utah, BYU’s 738-acre campus is home to more than 35,000 students who come from 105 countries and every state in the United States.
Amidst BYU’s growth, there has remained a constant thread. Dedicated faculty, administrators, coaches and students embrace a vision of learning, in which academics and faith go hand in hand and the ultimate goal is to help students develop their full divine potential as children of God.
