Pictures of REU Activities

Our REU/RET participants have the amazing opportunity here at BYU to work hard and play even harder! Between their research and adventures exploring the great state of Utah, our participants are exposed to a fantastic range of activities and views only Utah has to offer. These experiences will last a lifetime and create memories and friendships they will never forget.


Our 2017 participants come from all over the country. We have students from New York to California and everywhere in between. We started off strong with a beautiful trip to Arches National Park and Dead Horse Point and will be adding to our album as the summer continues! Consider BYU for your 2018 REU experience!!!!

Mount Timpanogos


Our 2016 participants went hiking in the gorgeous Wasatch Mountains, visited Arches National Park and Timpanogos Cave National Monument, had an amazing acoustics tour of the LDS Conference Center in Salt Lake City, attended the International Folk Festival, and got to go to the Utah Air Show, where they saw an aerial performance by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.
