I'm 16 years old and my family is planning to move to Provo next year.I'm from Mexico and I've never lived in the U.S.A before and I'm a little bit worried that we would not fit in, because we're not LDS and we're not planning to convert lol. Will we have trouble living in Provo and making new contacts?? Any answer is appreciated.

There is a large hispanic community of people in the Utah Valley. Just be friendly and out going, and you will make friends.

Default From one non LDS to another

Hey,
Just wanted to let you know I am a non morman living in Provo. I actually dont even like to think of living anywhere else. My neighbors and friends here ( both Mormon and non- Mormon are all great people. I feel I am very fortunate to have the people around me here that I do. I Love Provo, and I bet you will too.

Default You will fit in just fine it you want to

Where most people run into problems in relocation is when they refuse to integrate in a new area and be part of the prevailing scene. Some people come with baggage and expectations from previous situations and try to alter things to suit themselves. Utah is Mormon country, had been for a long time. And it's one of the safest, friendliest and cleanest places because of the Mormons so keep that in mind when going there. Even though I'm not Mormon I love spending time in Utah and always show respect towards the Mormons when I'm there. If you are friendly, respectful and outgoing you increase your chances considerably for fitting in.

Question Are You Saying The Posts Still Don't Fit a Year Later?

Yes, what else would you like to say VC dreamer..........?

Get a Trax pass and use it often?

Get connected with non-LDS groups in Provo/Orem.

Does anyone have a rough # of how many people in UT County are not LDS? Lots chose to live in Provo, even though they aren't LDS.

I think the posts above had good info and are "timeless." New info about developments, the direct train access to Salt Lake County etc. can be added. Where is the inaccurate information in what was written?

The point is, people will top a very old thread and answer a question someone asked a year ago, often not adding any new info, and most likely not realizing that the OP has probably long since figured it out by now and moved on.

People who do this tend to be new to the forum - I see nothing wrong with letting them know this... it's a courtesy... if they ever come back, that is. For both people who topped this, it was their only post.

Cinnabon,

I do agree with everything you said. I also think a lot of new users ask the same questions and a post from a year ago often asks the same core questions this year or next year too. Provo will always be south of Salt Lake County.

For me, I'd rather see less threads asking the same questions than one that gets updated from time to time addressing what those contemplating a move to a specific area need to know. That doesn't mean anyone else agrees with me, just my 2 cents.

Thanks for posting your thoughts.

I agree, people who have questions should perform searches and top old threads to ask a question so all the info would be consolidated.

It just seems that people top old threads to answer a question, mistakenly believing that they are helping the OP.

A very good point cinnabon about thinking a current answer is for the OP.

I couldn't agree more about searching.........................

Do threads ever "expire" due to non-activity or being too old? I don't know what too old is, it would have to be determined by others at CDF. No new responses in X time or other criteria, perhaps.

I wish there were a way to have a core set of FAQs about an area that could be updated at anytime. Perhaps separating MSA's into their own mini-forums within the state would help encourage some to read and search before posting again.

Maybe some new ways to approach various posts can come out of this discussion. At least I can hope some do.
