Brigham Young Biography

Brigham Young University is a private university located in Provo, Utah, United States. It is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and, excluding online students, is the largest religious university and one of the largest private universities in the U.S., with 34,000 on-campus students.

Approximately 98% of the university's 34,000 students are members of the LDS Church, and one-third of its American students come from within the state of Utah. BYU students are required to follow an honor code, which mandates behavior in line with LDS teachings such as academic honesty, adherence to dress and grooming standards, and abstinence from extramarital sex and from the consumption of drugs and alcohol. Many students take a two-year hiatus from their studies at some point to serve as Mormon missionaries. A BYU education is also less expensive than at similar private universities, since "a significant portion" of the cost of operating the university is subsidized by the church's tithing funds.

BYU offers programs in liberal arts, engineering, agriculture, management, and law. Source: Wikipedia
