BYU's honor code doesn't mess around. Just getting caught sipping a hot cup o' joe on campus can land you on academic probation. :shock:

WTF? Wine is not only legal, but also good for health in small daily doses.
Where is this place? Is it in Medieval - Inquisition Era Europe?

Furthermore, all students are required to abstain from possessing, serving, or consuming alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, or harmful drugs. Involvement with gambling; pornographic, erotic, or indecent material; disorderly, obscene, or indecent conduct or expressions; or with other offensive materials, expressions, or conduct or disruption of the peace that, in the sole discretion and judgment of the university, is inconsistent with the principles of the Church and the BYU Honor Code is not permitted in student housing.

Does this mean I cant rape a cat while smoking a joint and watching midget porn on the tv and screaming obscenties?

(But really, serving? You can't work at a bar? WTF kind of school is this?)

I wonder if drinking Red Bull violates the school's honor code? There are times when I just gotta have a can!

Brigham Young University, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, Brigham Young University-Idaho, and LDS Business College exist to provide an education in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


Pretty self-explanatory.

Really entertaining indeed... I think the whole BW/FT/WSJ list of top b-schools is a list of corrupt schools... Especially when one has as doctrine to not wear sleeveless shirts in the Hawaii campus...

But not all students on campus are mormon. Clearly the vast majority do subscribe to the LDS, however at least 6~7% are foreign students, most of which I presume are not Mormon.

But since it is a mormon school, they expect the students to subscribe to basic mormon principles, i.e. don't put "bad" stuff in your system.

Interestingly enough, many of the school's faculty are not LDS members. Reading a bit further into their honor code, BYU requires active participation in church services according to whatever religion one is a member. In theory, it seems inherently contradictory for the school to, for example, forbid a Jewish worshipper to drink wine during passover or purim.

I don't drink any of this stuff, so I am ok. That said, I guess who would go to such a place where one cannot have coffee.

But seriously, given these restrictions, who would every apply to BYU.

The shoestring budget minded student. The total cost for tuition (and fees) for two years in under $20K. Half that if one is willing to give up all stimulants and attend LDS sermons all day on Sundays.

In BYU's defense, you simply can't beat the school's impeccable ethical standards. Maybe it's a little too sqeaky clean for us fellow caffeine addicts :wink:

Perpetuating the process of non-thinking called faith is an insult to the human mind and , in my view, unethical because it fosters a backward belief system, discourages inquisitive thinking, and establishes an unessecary and useless fear in it's followers.

Ethics? Not there.
