Brigham Young University has one of the most talented student bodies in the country. More than 75% of BYU students speak a foreign language and BYU’s internationally acclaimed performing groups have produced over 12,000 shows across the world.
Additionally, BYU athletic teams have won a combined 10 national titles including football, men’s volleyball, and cross country. BYU also has an outstanding intramural program; over 25,000 students participate in more than 30 different sports.
We have all been blessed with many talents. The gospel teaches us that we should use these talents to better the lives of others, “that every man may improve upon his talent, that every man may gain other talents, yea, even an hundred fold,” (D&C 82:18).

From Dee Allsop, Former BYU Alumni Association President:
I developed a deep streak of blue in my veins from the
years I attended Brigham Young University. To this day, I still get
excited as I come over the point of the mountain on my way to the BYU
Campus. So much happened here for me and I owe much of who I am to
the people and experiences that blessed my life at BYU.
It is a debt I love paying back because it keeps me close
to the special people of BYU and the spirit of the Y continues to bless my
life today. Giving back to BYU of your time, talent, and treasure is a
choice you make that can also bless your life today as students. Deepen your relationship with the Y while you are still at school
and build the kind of habit that will cultivate the spirit of the Y to be a
lifelong relationship and blessing in your life.
Yours is the responsibility and blessing as Student Alumni to "Enter
to Learn," "Go Forth to Serve" and then "Return to Give Back."
