Tied With Harvard
Not many students turn down admission to Harvard—or to BYU. The two universities are no. 1 in the country in terms of admitted students who actually enroll, according to U.S. News & World Report. Nearly 80 percent of students accepted to BYU go on to enroll at the university.
The storied and multifaceted Knight Mangum Building—which served as a women’s dormitory, a Language Training Mission facility, and a home to various academic programs—closed terminally in spring. The building will be torn down over the summer, and the space will be re-graded and landscaped.

A new LDS Philanthropies building was dedicated by President Henry B. Eyring in May. The three-story building, located on University Avenue, houses professional fund-raising staff for the Church and for BYU.
For the first time, the course and instructor evaluations BYU students are invited to complete at the end of each semester are available for student viewing online, helping students choose classes and instructors that best suit their learning styles. The evaluations, completed confidentially, help the university improve courses. Students must complete evaluations to have access to class and professor ratings.
