Culture—Think Globally; Enjoy Locally
Utah Valley is rich in cultural experiences and the arts. It is home to two major universities, as well as to gifted performers and teachers in art, music, theatre and dance.
The residents of Utah Valley also contribute to this experience by bringing a variety of cultural backgrounds from around the world. For example, at Brigham Young University, the area’s largest university, six percent of the student body is from outside the United States, representing more than 120 countries. More than three-fourths of the students speak a language other than their native tongue.
Many Utah Valley residents have lived in other countries, and those experiences express themselves in the area’s multicultural attractions.
