More than 13,000 people have signed an online petition  calling on Brigham Young University to provide immunity for students who report being sexually assaulted.

Under current policy, the university investigates students who report sexual assault for violations of the school's strict honor code , which bans premarital sex, same-sex dating, alcohol consumption and being in the bedroom of someone of the opposite sex, among other things. This means a student who reports a sexual assault could end up being placed on probation, suspended or expelled if BYU finds them to have been in violation of the honor code.

BYU is a private school based on Provo, Utah, and is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, often referred to simply as the Mormon church. 

OK. I didn t take the BYU Spanish 2 online, but I did take the Algebra 2 exam and it works the same way. Basically, what I did was select a proctor of my choice. It s best to select a teacher that you know personally, but it doesn t have to be your Spanish teacher. All you have to do is to get a certified proctor (make sure that your proctor is accepted by the university), and request for the exam online. Make sure that all of your assignments and projects are turned in before you request the exam. Here s the link: http://ce.byu.edu/is/site/students/requestexam.cfm. Also, set a date with your proctor to take your exam. Remember to pay for the $20 mailing fee, otherwise your exam will not be graded. You will probably have a set of multiple-choice questions (the number varies from each exam), and you will have to fill in a bubble sheet. There should be no time limit to take the exam. Hope this helps, and good luck!

The family of a college student who disappeared during a 2004 trip to China see new signs for hope after a Japanese news agency reported that he was.

Welcome to  “ The Story We Share,” a series of Q&As that profile two people with similar identities ― but who live in very different places. As part of  HuffPost’s Listen To America  tour, we’re exploring how people’s lived experiences overlap and diverge depending on their zip codes.  What is the “American Experience ” ? It depends where you look. 

Holdaway, the oldest of five siblings, was raised Mormon in the Pacific Northwest, and later moved to Carlsbad, California, before starting college at Brigham Young University. Ryan was raised in the small town of Kutztown, Pennsylvania, and moved to Baltimore in high school.   

Both are, in many ways, average college students who live like many average college students do ― in a realm of board game nights, awkward dates in the cafeteria, and sports and extracurriculars.

David Sneddon was presumed dead in 2004 but he is reportedly alive, and living with a wife and two children in North Korea

The family of a college student who disappeared during a 2004 trip to China see new signs for hope after a Japanese news agency reported that he was kidnapped by the North Korean government. 

David Sneddon was presumed dead after he vanished in the Yunnan Province in western China when he was 24. A student at Brigham Young University, police said Mr Sneddon likely died while hiking in Tiger Leaping Gorge near the Jinsha River on 14 August 2004.

In this episode we interview Tanner Gilliland and Samantha Snyder.  Tanner was raised as an orthodox Mormon in Flagstaff, Arizona.  Samantha converted to the LDS Church in the U.K.  Both lived very orthodox LDS lives as millennials, attending BYU-Idaho as devout members, and interning for Deseret Book after graduating from BYU-I.  Samantha co-founded the web site  Millennial Mormons.

As Tanner and Samantha began to question the modern LDS Church, they briefly entertained the teachings of Denver Snuffer (Tanner was actually re-baptised according to Snuffer’s teachings).  Earlier this year, both Tanner and Samantha left the LDS Church, and recently co-founded the new post-Mormon millennial blog called  ZelphOnTheShelf.com.

As recent reports suggest that the LDS Church is losing its Millennial members at a rapid pace (see  here  and  here ), this interview begins to explore why.
