As part of a commencement at BYU, Leonard J. Arrington said “Brigham Young University is one of the great institutions of higher learning in the world. “It seems appropriate, at the beginning of this centennial year, to review the paths we’ve climbed, we and those before us, to reach this prominence. For BYU it has been a steep ascent, better scaled by steps than in a gradual climb. I seem to see seven steps. The steps to BYU’s greatness have come about by the blessings of the Lord on the labors of people whose efforts were enduring, often ennobling, and as often humbling.” Read about those seven steps to greatness in this article.
