BYU: Stone Cold Sober

BYU Logo

For the ninth straight year, BYU has received the title of being the “most stone cold sober” school.

Not surprising.

I’ve already talked about the importance I see in mixing temporal and spiritual learning together. Both are hindered when the person has a hangover or a buzz from a recent indulgence. Some may criticize it, but BYU’s honor code serves an excellent purpose. Students should be going to school to learn—not to get drunk, sleep around, and get into trouble with like-minded cohorts. That is a waste of time, money, and brain cells.

Some people say that life isn’t as fun without a little booze or pot. That is a ridiculous sentiment. I had plenty of fun during my time at BYU. My main purpose in being there, however, was to study and work. And that’s what I did. I’m grateful for an institution and environment that allowed me to focus, work hard, and succeed—all without having to worry about being surrounded by drugs or booze.
