From what I have heard, progressive, liberal professors at a lot of these universities are contributing to the problems encountered, not making it better. And, young people who don't agree with their liberal teaching are forced to go along on paper anyway to avoid getting failing grades.

What can I say? I loved going to school at BYU! Next to Harvard, it is the most sought after university to attend in America! Oh, that they could accept all the bright, eager young and old minds that are so anxious to attend there. I loved the faith based courses I took in a variety of all academia. And, they have continued to open their doors through the years to me through Campus Education Week, Women's Conference, and a host of other uplifting classes to better the mind and strengthen the family!

I also appreciate the caliber of men and women in BYU's coaching staff from football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, track, etc., etc. Living the honor code and character building is of up-most importance. "Enter to learn; go forward to serve the world."

I forgot to mention what a wonderful president, we have in in President Samuelson! Steady and sure leader. He has been outstanding. And, his wife, Sharon, had to make the hard but wise choice to change from red to Cougar blue!
