    I'm thirty-nine, just graduated with a second bachelor's degree from the University of Utah and found time to take two Institute classes while I was there. One of those classes was taught by the same Grant Anderson quoted in this article. I was never once asked to leave and always felt welcome. You're only as young as you feel!

    David, I think it's available to any college student, regardless of age. You can always ask the institute director if he'll let you attend.

    This article mentions an age range of 18 to 30. Is the Institute program still available to those beyond this age frame?? Sounds like a Good Program. Hope that it's OK for all adults
    that want to socialize and learn more about Gospel principles and about the Love of the
    Lord Jesus.

    I presently teach at the LDS Business College. Students in my class come from all over the world: China, Korea, Japan, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Philippines, Columbia, Ecuador, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, many of the nations on the African Continent, from New Zealand and Australia, the Marshall Islands, Tonga, Samoa, Russia, the Ukraine, and throughout the United States. They are hardworking students with a skilled knowledge of the Bible, Book of Mormon, other scriptures, and General Conference addresses. In my history classes, I ask the students to evaluate events in United States history based on their knowledge of the scriptures. Usually, there are ten events of each of the 34 chapters in Alan Brinkley's THE UNFINISHED NATIONS. The students show great skill and knowledge. Usually, I have full classes of 40 students, each eager to learn and discuss their acquired knowledge and analysis of national and world events. They are eager to follow the counsel of President Thomas S. Monson to participate in Institute of Religion classes.
