what can anyone tell me about moving to provost. I passed through on bus few times and was impressed with the mountin range that is right there "in your face" like a postcard. I love to hike and would prefer close proximity to wilderness. I want a rather compact city with decent bus service(dont have a car). Mountains and natural setting are a big draw for me and a rather educated, well read area. how is the winter, severe, mild? I suspect it is not too diverse, i am black. but that does not bother me much.

Provo would be alright, but consider Salt Lake City over Provo. Salt Lake has a better public transit system, buses and the lightrail system Trax. And the mountains are right there. Easy to get up the mountains by bus to ski resorts and hiking also. Salt Lake city is a bit more diverse and liberal than Provo. Both get plenty of snow in the winter. Some days can be severe, but quite a bit of sunshine as well (even if it's freezing cold).

I grew up (21 years) in Orem. I am a non-active Catholic and I couldn't wait to move to Salt Lake to finish college at the U of U. Growing up, I didn't fit in with most of the LDS kids. My dad owned a beer distributing company and he drank and smoked. Not all families/kids are so narrow minded. I had and still have many LDS friends. You just need to take the time to get to know people around you.....if you feel you're the only one making the effort to become friends, time to move on to find a new friend who will value who you are.

I have several siblings, nieces, nephews and friends who live in Orem. They love it there. I'm told it's a great place to raise a family. I don't have kids.

In general, I'd say the salaries in Utah county are lower than those in Salt Lake county. But maybe the cost of living is lower there too.

Rent an apartment for your first year here and determine what works best for your lifestyle and interests.
