For me the Brigham Young campus offers a refreshing change of pace. Its virtues are readily apparent. Here the scenery is magnificent, the buildings are handsome, and you can still tell the boys from the girls. Now don’t misunderstand me, I don’t have anything against long hair, but I didn’t raise my son to be my daughter.
When you read of campus violence day after day and when you survey a strident student minority, long on locks and lean on faith, there appears reason to despair. More Americans should learn about Brigham Young University. Our nation’s largest private school does honor to the public spirit. Much credit belongs to President Wilkinson, to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and to those who come to teach and those who come to learn here.
