From "A Man for All Seasons" When a man takes an oath, he's holding his own self in his own hands like water, and if he opens his fingers then, he needn't hope to find himself again.

BYU is helping Brandon find himself again.

I lived the code at BYU while obtaining my professional degrees. It was much easier to live than the rules I kept as a missionary serving in Mexico. I loved the great fun we had in our student ward and at general activities like sports. I had previously attended UCSD and had my eyes opened quite a few times by others' drug use, alcohol and smoking pot. I left the school to prepare to serve a mission. Older and wiser to what the world thought was fun. I'm glad I met my wife at BYU and that all 5 children chose to attend. Each of them could have attended UC Berkley, UCLA or UCSD for about the same cost of going to BYU. They wanted to leave California and live under a code that matched their beliefs. They had seen enough of the other side of life attending their public California high schools.
